Tallahassee (Fla.) Florida High School class of 2015 quarterback/safety prospect Ronnie Harrison is one of the most sought after prospects in the state of Florida. The 6-foot-2 and 200-pound rising senior has been committed to North Carolina since last summer but offers from Alabama, Florida, LSU and Kentucky since that time have given Harrison reason to re-think his pledge to the Tar Heels.
Harrison said this morning that he remains committed to North Carolina but will take the next week to reconsider offers from all of the aforementioned schools. He plans on reaffirming his commitment to the Tar Heels or switching his commitment from North Carolina next Tuesday, July 29th, at a media event for Tallahassee area high school football teams. Harrison just returned from an unofficial to Alabama this past weekend.
“I am still committed to North Carolina. I am making a final decision next Tuesday. I will also consider LSU, Kentucky and Florida,” Harrison said of his re-opened top five.
Harrison was joined by his mother in Tuscaloosa this weekend and he enjoyed his visit with Alabama head coach Nick Saban and Tide assistant coaches Kirby Smart and Lance Thompson.
”The whole trip was great. I just enjoyed getting one-on-one time with Coach Smart, Coach Thompson and Coach Saban with my mom. It gave me a chance to look at the depth chart and see where I fit in. I was able to see the whole campus and meet the academic reps and everything,” Harrison said.
The talented athlete is quick to admit he is impressed with the number of defensive backs Alabama has put in the NFL during Coach Saban’s tenure at Alabama.
”Coach Saban and Coach Smart they are great coaches and they put defensive backs in the league every year and I can be the next one to come out of Bama,” Harrison said.
Harrison says he plans to take an official visit to Alabama during the weekend of the Crimson Tide’s home game against Auburn later this fall.
