One of the nation’s top junior college running backs is Joseph Harris of El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. Harris, who is originally from Olathe, Kan., has ran all over defenses this season, helping the Grizzlies to the NCJAA national championship game.
It’s his play, plus his 5-foot-9, 219-pound frame that have him getting plenty of attention from all over the nation.
“I really haven’t set any trips yet,” Harris said. “I think I’m supposed to go to North Carolina next weekend, but I originally thought it was going to be this weekend. I know they weren’t at home this weekend, so I had to change my plans up. I’ll see how it works out.”
Harris is also getting regular calls from Washington State, Colorado State, Purdue, Kentucky and UNC. His lone early scholarship offer is from Iowa State.
“I don’t know what’s going to be important for me,” the three-star selection said. “I’m kind of looking for somewhere that has a running style of offense and a school where I can come in and compete for playing time right away.”
