Harris Talks Louisville Trip
Iowa Western CC wideout Paul Harris is holding steady at two offers, from Louisville and East Carolina. The former Tennessee Volunteer has emerged as one of the top junior college wideouts in the country. He recently took an unofficial visit to Louisville and came away impressed with the program. "It was good," Harris said. "I didn't know a lot about them. I went there to do some research and to meet the coaches. I wanted to get to know them. They are the school I'm in the most contact with." "It was great to meet the people," he added. "The people make the place. I was able to speak with Coach Thomas, Coach Klenakis, Coach McGee, and Coach Petrino. It felt like a good home, in not so many words. It was an energized place. I liked the players and all the coaches. They all speak the same language. It was a great trip." The Cardinals will be taking a bit hit to the receiver position, and they've made sure to indicate that point to Harris as well. "They are losing five receivers," he noted. "There isn't much to say past that. If you don't want to come in and play, they aren't the right program for you. Playing time is the best selling point." "The family feel is really what stood out, though," Harris continued. "I'm confident enough in my game that I feel like I can work my way to the top of the depth chart anywhere. Playing time is key for everyone, but the people make the place and that's what will be be the biggest factor for me. You want to surround yourself with people you like, trust, and that you believe in. If not, you're not going to enjoy yourself." Other programs are going to be monitoring Harris and his performance this Fall. "I talk to Coach Frost from Oregon," he mentioned. "He recruited me out of high school, and they were in my top three when I made my decision back then. I have a real good relationship with them." "A lot of schools want to see how I do this season. They saw my highlight film out of high school and the on catch I had at Tennessee that made all the highlight reels. They want to know what's holding me back and the reason I'm in the position I am in. They want to make sure I still got it." Harris has no concerns about his recruitment and will be sure to be patient as it wanes on. "I didn't burn any bridges," he stated about his recruitment. "Most of my options out of high school are still in contact with me. My recruitment really hasn't taken any kind of shape yet."
