Harper has great trip to Pac-12 school

When Austin Harper got to Cal's junior day last weekend one of the first things he did was hand his highlight tape to the coaching staff.
The El Cerrito, Calif., cornerback hopes he can make an impression on the Golden Bears and possibly pick up an offer.
That might have to wait until after summer camp but Harper is hopeful things continue to pick up with Cal after his visit.
"I handed them my film when I first got there," Harper said.
"I'm not sure if they watched it yet though. They asked me to come to the Cal camp to see what I can do."
Harper, a 5-foot-7, 160-pound prospect, said he had a great time in Berkeley and spent a lot of time with the coaching staff.
He also learned lots about the academic programs at Cal and said he was really impressed with the overall presentation of everything.
"It was really good," Harper said. "I had a good time and they showed us how they run the football program and their academics.
"I got to talk to the coaches a lot. I was with them for about four hours straight and they're all good guys.
"I was asking a lot of questions about the academic program and making sure they'd keep us on track. You should never be ineligible basically. It was a good time."
Washington and Washington State have mainly been showing the most interest in Harper along with the Golden Bears.
The El Cerrito standout said he plans to send out his highlight tape to most Pac-12 schools in the coming weeks to gauge interest.
