In a star-studded field in Las Vegas last month for the Badger/New Level Pass Camp, it was an under-the-radar guy who caught our attention in Corona (Calif.) Centennial receiver Geshaun Harris (6-3, 206).
Harris was a part of CaliTwo, the winners of the 7-on-7 tournament and was one of the top targets on the day en route to all-camp honors.
Since then, Harris has started to hear from a handful of schools.
“I’ve been getting interest from Colorado, New Mexico and a few letters from UCLA,” said Harris. “Oregon, Illinois, USC and Arizona State are some other schools.”
Arizona State is no stranger to the Centennial campus, signing three Huskies in February, and Harris is very aware of the pipeline being built.
“Oh yeah, Shelly (Lyons) and Brandon (Magee), are always talking about Arizona State so it would be real cool to play there,” said Harris.
Ryan Bass was the third Husky to sign with the Sun Devils, and interestingly, it was Bass’ presence at Centennial which limited Harris’ touches.
“We had a great running back with Ryan and a great quarterback with Matt (Scott) who was fast, so we didn’t throw as much,” said Harris.
Which is why Harris is hitting the camps and combines this spring. His performance at the Vegas camp was a surprise to many, but not to him.
“I knew that I could do well and I feel like I showed what I could do,” said Harris. “It was fun and it was a good experience. I tease Vontaze (Burfict, his HS teammate who he defeated in the tournament) about it.”
This spring, Harris is planning on attending the UnderArmour/Scout.com Combine at the Home Depot Center and potentially some camps this summer.
Academically, Harris has a 3.8 GPA and will take the SAT in June.
