Harrell has his priorities in line

Today is the first day that college coaches can contact recruits and the nation’s No. 10 pro-style quarterback Graham Harrell has already had his ear glued to the phone. But he’s taking a reality break for most of the evening, according to his father and his coach Sam Harrell.
“He’s over at his girl friends house,” his father said. “Guess he has some more important things to deal with tonight.”
But Harrell, who is 6-foot-2 and 183 pounds, has had a busy Monday.
“We’ve talked to Texas Tech, Arizona State, Baylor, Louisiana Tech and Wisconsin,” Harrell said. “Graham was really interested to hear from all of them and had very good conversations with each of them.”
But Harrell said that nothing much has changed in the last month with his son’s recruitment. Ever since he was prepared to commit to Georgia and then was beat to the punch by Mississippi quarterback Blake Barnes, the three-star quarterback has listed Arizona State, N.C. State and Texas Tech as his top teams.
“It’s still about the same,” Harrell said about his son.
“He’s not got any plans for visits yet and he’s not really planning on checking out any games. We’re pretty focused on our first game. We have Waxahachie at their place. It will be a battle. They’re a big rival.”
