He is hoping to show coaches what they are looking for in a linebacker later spring.
"I feel better than ever and I am ready to show everyone that I am a competitor and that I can on the next level. I have been working hard at all these combines and camps trying to make a name for myself, so I think I will show coaches what I can do this spring."
Harper is a 5-foot-11, 213 pound linebacker and he is not a blazer on the field. His height and speed have been knocks on him at some combines, but he doesn't feel that should hold schools back.
"I am an intense competitor, I love to compete, I play with my emotions, and I think those things will stand out when people watch me play," he said. "I know I am not that tall and I am not going to run the fastest 40 yard dash, but I am a baller."
"I am capable of playing at the highest level and I want to show people that. I know I can do it, I am go to work hard to get there, and I think I could surprise some people."
"I just want a shot. If someone gives me one, they will be happy. I just play football and play very hard."
