Harrison Putting In The Work
Rex Harrison is willing to do what it takes to reach his goals. Some people talk about it others do it. Harrison is a doer. He has used the resources that were available and the time necessary to be the best. His level of play has risen and so has the interest from college coaches. He has interest from several schools and will look to receive his first offer after a strong showing this summer. Harrison stands 6'3" and weighs 202 pounds. He has excellent footwork and fundamentals. Everything seems to be coming together at a perfect time. "I have been working out and training hard," said Harrison. "I have been to the Elite 11 and Nike. I also have been working out with a quarterback coach to work on my throwing mechanics and especially my footwork. I was also able to work out with Dan Henning who coached in the NFL. My grandfather played professional football with him so he was nice enough to work with me one day to refine my technique." Harrison has been hearing from coaches around the country this offseason. "The schools I hear from the most are North Carolina, Duke, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Boston College, Virginia and most recently Arizona State. I am happy and humble to receive their interest. Also being a quarterback and fan of the sport who wouldn't want to be recruited by Florida, USC, Texas or Oklahoma as well. Those schools and their offenses speak for themselves. If I had an opportunity to play at one of those schools I would really have to consider that. Basically I am still wide open to any opportunity." With the summer around the corner, Harrison is looking forward to getting to some camps and showing the college coaches his ability first hand. "I know I will be doing as many camps as I can this summer. I know I will go to Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, North Carolina and Duke. I may also try and get to Arizona State. Old Dominion and Elon may be stops as well." While on the various campuses this summer Harrison will not only be focused on his performance but will also be looking at what the school has to offer. "I really care about the academic value a school has to offer. I think it is important to think about my future after football. I also think it is important to have a good student body and a good lifestyle provided where I can enjoy my time there." Harrison plays in a Wing "T" offense which limits the passing opportunities. As a junior last season, Harrison was still able to pass for over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns against just three interceptions. He also added 7 rushing touchdowns. He reports a 3.1 GPA.
