Exton (Pa.) Downington East junior running back Drew Harris has had verbal offers from South Carolina and Rutgers for some time now.
While written offers won't be coming in anytime soon he could be getting a lot more verbal offers in the near future.
If the amount of mail he is receiving from coaches is any indicator it's only a matter of time until more offers come in. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound running back has heard from programs all over the country.

"I've got handwritten letters from coach Nick Saban at Alabama and coach Urban Meyer [at Florida]," Harris explained. "I've been talking to coach Greg Schiano [Rutgers] on Facebook lately."
Tennessee, Alabama, NC State, LSU, Penn State, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Duke, UConn, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Florida State, Florida, Georgia, West Virginia and Cal are just some of the schools that have regularly been sending Harris mail, making him one of the most sought after prospects from Pennsylvania in the Class of 2012 so far.
Harris is interested in both South Carolina and Rutgers, the two schools that have offered, and those are the only schools he feels comfortable passing judgment on at this point.
"Those are the only two schools I really know a lot about," he said. "I recently saw [Marcus] Lattimore play against Georgia and he was really impressive. I really like their style of play. I'll probably consider them as one of my top schools. I can't really name any other schools because I'll only consider what I know, and that's them [South Carolina] and Rutgers."
Harris might become a lot more familiar with South Carolina later this year. He wants to attend the Gamecocks' home game against Alabama, but he isn't sure whether his game is on a Friday or a Saturday that weekend.
Downington East is 1-1 on the season and they won their last game 49-10.
"I feel like my vision has improved and so has my overall ability," he said. "I just feel like it's a new game this year."
In two games Harris has rushed for 180 yards and four touchdowns.
