The Rivals Five-Star Academy and Next Level Athlete teamed up on Sunday to see several of the top prospects in Oklahoma and North Texas come out for the camp at Lancaster (Texas) High School. One of the most impressive prospects in attendance was Cedar Hill (Texas) defender David Harris.
The 6-foot, 240-pound junior plays defensive end for his high school team but could also potentially play inside linebacker at the next level. Harris already holds three early offers and is receiving attention from a number of others schools as well.
"I've gotten offers from Rice, Air Force and Navy," Harris said. "I think Kansas is about to offer me. They've talked about doing it soon.
"I went to OU's summer camp last year. They got a chance to look at me and see how I play. I've been hearing from them a little bit too. I've been to a junior day at UNT and I'm thinking about going to TCU's camp as well."
Although he worked out at defensive end on Sunday, Harris says he is not sure at what position he will line up in college.
"My coach hasn't really told me where all the schools like me," he said. "He just tells me that they're looking at me. I can see myself playing defensive end or linebacker. It really doesn't matter too much. If I gained some more weight I think I'd rather stay at d-end but I can play either one.
"When I was at OU's camp I played both. The d-line coach said he really liked me and the linebacker coach said it was really good to see me working there as well."
Harris is an honor student in the classroom, sporting a perfect 4.0 grade point average. He says a school's academics will play a part in his final decision.
"It's not going to be the only thing I base my decision on," he said, "but it's going to be a part of it. I want to have a degree that I can use when I'm done with football."
Harris' older brother, Adam Shead, is currently an offensive lineman at Oklahoma. It's no surprise then that the Sooners are one of the younger brother's top schools.
"I really liked OU when I went up there," he said. "I went up there with my brother and I liked it when I went up there. I like TCU too but I'm not sure if they're going to recruit me. I'm probably going to go to their camp and let them get a look at me again."
Harris was named a first-team all-district selection as a junior after helping the Longhorns to an 8-4 record and the second round of the Class 5A state playoffs.
