Chris Harper looked the part at the Badger Sports 7-on-7 event in Las Vegas and then at the recent Los Angeles NIKE Camp and the Encino (Calif.) Crespi wide receiver hopes schools are taking notice.
SMU has already offered Harper, a 6-foot receiver who finished with 60 catches for 940 yards and seven touchdowns in his junior season, and he said Arizona State, UCLA, Miami and others have shown interest.
The Mustangs are definitely under consideration because they throw the ball so much and as a receiver Harper cannot ask for much more.
"They just told me they have high interest in me and they throw the ball a lot," Harper said of SMU.
"They have a spread offense. I've seen them play a couple times and they throw the ball a lot. I think I'm going to play slot if I don't grow a little taller."
The next step for Harper is to attend more camps including the Palo Alto NIKE Camp and he plans to keep working out with his 1925 All-Stars 7-on-7 team. He has also been to a Football University camp trying to gain more exposure.
"I really hope I can get more looks as the summer goes on," Harper said.
His senior season should be even more productive than his junior campaign when he had to share catches with UCLA signee Devin Lucien, a four-star prospect who had 71 catches and 18 touchdowns last season.
In terms of his recruitment, Harper said SMU is up there since it offered and that he's looking at everyone else as well.
With only one offer so far, Harper doesn't want to limit his options.
"Everybody is in the mix right now," he said. "Oregon has always been my dream school but I haven't really heard anything from them yet."
