Harris planning Stanford visit

Junior dual-threat quarterback Quentin Harris of Watertown (Conn.) Taft School has three early offers and is hearing from a number of new schools. He also has plans to visit a Pac-12 school next month.
Harris, who has offers from Boston College, Duke and Yale, gave a quick overall recap of his recruiting process.
"I have been in contact with Coach Leonard from BC weekly for the most part and I've talked to Coach Cutcliffe from Duke through twitter a little bit, but I've been mostly focusing on the season," said Harris. "I have been getting tons of mail though since the September 1 deadline. I receive almost letters daily from Alabama, Cincinnati, Pitt, Utah, and Auburn. My dad tells me that at home I get a lot from schools like Florida State, Oregon, and UConn."
Another school high on Harris' list is Stanford, who he will soon visit.
"I'm planning to get out to Stanford for their game against Notre Dame on November 30th," said Harris. "I'm just hoping to get to see the coaching staff again and improve relations with them as well as just get an overall feel as to what it's like to be a student-athlete there on campus."
Harris believes that UConn may have been next to offer, so he also shared his thoughts on the coaching change at the school.
"I just wish Coach Pasqualoni the best in his future and the rest of his coaching staff in the future," he said. "I was surprised to hear the news."
With a few offers and plenty of interest coming his way, Harris was asked if he had any current favorites.
"I wouldn't say I have a clear favorite now, but my top three in no particular order would be BC, Duke and Stanford," said Harris.
In between dealing with his recruiting process, Harris is also busy with his own junior season.
"It's going alright so far," he said. "My team has gotten out to a bit of a rough start but our offense has been able to perform well in our two games thus far. Statistically I'm doing well. I have six passing touchdowns and four rushing right now with 627 passing yards and 196 rushing yards."
Harris has noticed obvious improvements in his game compared to last season.
"I would say the overall chemistry with my teammates has improved," he said. "We are able to communicate well and be on the same page. Being the full-time starter I connect better than last year when I was just sharing time with our other quarterback. I've also started to make more audibles at the line if I see something during the play that my coaches didn't anticipate."
Harris is currently 6-foot-0 and 180 pounds, but projects to be around 6-foot-3 according to his doctor.
