Offensive tackle Jordan Harris out of Hampton (Ga.) Dutchtown claims five scholarship offers. The 6-foot-5, 325-pounder has been to a pair of camps this summer and plans to hit a couple more in the next month and a half.
"I've got offers from Middle Tennessee, Troy, Colorado State, Buffalo and Delaware," he said. "I've been to Middle Tennessee and then I went to Georgia over this past weekend. I'm still looking to go to USF later this month and Florida State in July."
To this point, Middle Tennessee seems to have an advantage with Harris.

"I would keep my options open, but Middle Tennessee is where I would go out of all my offers right now," he said. "I have a lot of interest in them and I can see where their program is going. The coaches seem cool and I think I fit in the program."
While he does not hold an offer from either, South Florida and Florida State continue to keep track of Harris.
"USF has been looking at me since I was a sophomore," he said. "They would have offered me then, but they held off cause of my grades. This semester my grades are up and at camp they could possibly offer. I went to Florida State's junior day. Jimbo Fisher liked me a lot and he asked me if they have a chance if they offer. I told them they do."
In addition, Harris is getting looks from Western Kentucky, Kentucky, Auburn and UCF.
Despite a handful of offers and serious interest, Harris is open, but he is begging to get an idea of what he is looking for in a college.
"I'm looking for the atmosphere, the coaches and to see how the coaches are," he said. "I want to see how the players fit into the program and another big part is the academics. If I get hurt, do I stay on scholarship even though I'm not playing? Mainly I'm looking at studying business management or sports management. Also, my goal is to stay down south. I'm not saying in Georgia, but anywhere down south."
Harris earned first team All-Region honors last season.
"I did pretty well," he said. "I should have done better. I thought. I started off slow, but the last couple games it started clicking for me. Everyone tells me that my footwork is really good and that I stay low off the ball."
