DB Brendon Harris of Chattanooga is a heavily recruited prospect that Clemson and USC have offered along with many others from across the country. Thus far he has visited Clemson, Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida and Vanderbilt. He was at Clemson for the January junior day and he plans to return for the spring game.
“It’s just getting to know the coaches and getting to meet the other juniors and getting a feel for the Clemson atmosphere,” Harris said. He’s not sure yet if Clemson likes him more for cornerback or safety and he said he prefer corner. Last season he had 73 tackles with 7 interceptions.
Harris said Tennessee, Auburn, Florida and LSU join Clemson as the schools he’s talking with the most, all have offered and he doesn’t have a favorite. Clemson was his first offer after he performed for the coaches at camp last summer. Some other offers include Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Mississippi State, Penn State, Oklahoma, Missouri, Vanderbilt and Virginia.
Harris said he’s also in touch with USC assistant Bobby Bentley and he plans to visit at some point.
“It’s kind of fun getting to know him and then his son being the quarterback on the team, it’s kind of fun knowing that,” Harris said. “They are a really good football team, also. I’d say they are still in the mix, too.”
Harris plans to wait until after the season before making his decision and he is not an early graduate.
