Harper impressive at Elite 11

The Elite 11 was mostly for evaluating quarterbacks but wide receiver Chris Harper shined running routes and catching passes and camp counselor Trent Dilfer even remarked that the Encino (Calif.) Crespi prospect is a legitimate player.
Now the 6-foot, 165-pound recruit is waiting for more offers.
"I've been working out at practice and if I get call then I get calls," Harper said this past week at Pepperdine. "I haven't really reached out to anyone that much because I don't know if they're that interested in me so I don't know.
"My favorites are the people who are showing the most interest in me. Basically, it's SMU, Georgia Tech and the other schools that offered me. Nevada and New Mexico State have also been showing interest so I'm interested in them too."
So far, Harper has picked up offers from Georgia Tech, SMU, Cal Poly, UC Davis and Montana and has a few more programs showing interest so the three-star prospect plans to wait things out in his recruitment.
Not only did Harper shine during the Elite 11 workouts but he's also starred with the 1925 All-Stars 7-on-7 team at multiple events this off-season so more programs could get in the mix soon.
Harper, who played alongside UCLA freshman Devin Lucien in Crespi's offense last season, hopes to have a breakout senior year. He has not set up any official visits at this point.
"I'm just waiting to see who's interested really," Harper said.
"I feel like my senior season is going to be a really good one for me. I've been working really hard this off-season and I think it's going to pay off."
