Class of 2026 ATH Keenan Harris is on the rise

Saint Louis (Mo.) University High School standout Keenan Harris is a physical specimen with a skill-set that spans far beyond his years. Possessing the size of a linebacker and athleticism of a safety, Harris can do a little bit of everything on the field. This dynamic skill-set has led to 13 scholarship offers with Oregon, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Penn State and other major programs among his list of early suitors.

Following a recent practice at SLUH, Rivals caught up with Harris to discuss schools that stand out early in his recruitment, recent game day visits and upcoming visit plans.



Harris on his offer list and schools that stand out:

"I'm keeping everybody pretty even right now because I'm still young, just letting everything flow and having fun with it," Harris said. "I like every school right now. I like Mizzou, it's close to home. I've liked Oregon since I was a little kid. I like Nebraska, Nebraska is probably recruiting me the heaviest right now."

On Nebraska:

"I've been down there a couple of times and I'll be back down there for the game against Northwestern," Harris said. "I went down there after our season last year and this will be my first game day visit. I'm looking to see how the atmosphere is and how the coaches coach, because I've never really gotten to see how they coach in person. I've always watched them on TV, so it will be good to see how they coach and rock out."

On recent visits and upcoming visit plans:

"I was recently at Mizzou and last week I was at Wisconsin," Harris said. "I'll probably head up to Mizzou again and I want to make sure I get to a couple more places before anything goes down."

On the recent Wisconsin game day visit:

"The atmosphere was great," Harris said. "I got to see my guys like Chris Brooks and Zach (Ortwerth). They played against each other, so it was good to see my boys out on the field, and just talk to them and have fun."

On the recent Missouri game day visit:

"I was up there when they played LSU and what stands out about them is that they are on the rise right now," Harris said. "They're hot and it's close to home. All of my family is here and I always liked Mizzou as a kid. I like to go up there, have some fun and just be with the guys. There are a couple of guys that went here up there like Isaac Thompson."
