Harris is looking for stability

Three new offers have arrived for this defensive back out of Georgia and he is interested in all three schools. He talks about his new offers, what school leads, and more right here.

"Tennessee, Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt are my new offers," said Ronnie Harris. "I also have offers from Harvard and South Carolina, so I have five official offers right now."

"I only count the schools that have I have offers from in my hand, so I know these five are official."

Harris is getting attention from schools like Arkansas, Miami, Oklahoma, and UCF right now too, but he is really looking into the schools that have offered him. He has been in contact with all five coaching staffs and he talks a little about each school that has offered to date here.

Harvard: "This offer means a lot because I pride myself on grades and they are one of the top academic schools in the country. I am really looking at them and I have already talked to their coach about visiting them in December. I am interested in seeing what they have."

Ole Miss: "I have talked to Coach [Terry] Price and I like what he has told me about Ole Miss. I plan to visit them for their Junior Day on March 27 and I can tell Coach Price really want me to be a Rebel."

South Carolina: "I have been there already for a Junior Day and it was great. They use five defensive backs in the game a lot and I like that. Coach [Lorenzo] Ward is recruiting me and I like him too. The atmosphere was great up at South Carolina."

Tennessee: "I talked to Coach [Lance] Thompson and when we were talking he told me about their medical program at Tennessee. That stood out to me because I want be a Cardiologist. I got a good vibe when talking to him and he messed with me about not pulling a Michael Taylor since he committed to them and then switched to Florida."

Harris has good ball skills.
Vanderbilt: "I have a good relationship with Coach [Jamie] Bryant and he has talked to me about their defensive scheme and how I would have a chance to make plays because they will be blitzing a lot. They also have a great academic program and I think they are building a good football program."

One of those five schools is in the lead for Harris. The one school that the 5-foot-8, 149 pound corner out of Atlanta (GA) Westlake has visited has put them onto the top of his list.

"It has to be South Carolina," he said when asked about a leader. "I have a great relationship with them, the visit I took was great, and I like them a lot. Like I said before, the visit I took there set the bar high for everyone else."

Although Harris has the high interest in the Gamecocks, he does not feel he is ready to commit to them just yet. He is going to give more schools a chance and explore the options that he has a little more before giving one school his verbal commitment.

He is not ruling out an early decision at some point though.

"I have no set date or anything like that because it will just be about when I feel it is right. I am looking for a sense of stability in both academics and athletics and after I find the place I feel is best for me, I will sit down and talk things over with my parents, and then commit."

"It could come very early or very late. I am not sure yet. I just want to do it when the time is right."

Harris currently carries a 3.8 GPA and he has scored a 1380 on the SAT.
