LB Harris talks LSU visit

Two-way prospect Kris Harris recently participated in the Florida State and LSU summer camps.
However, it was the Tigers trip that impressed him the most. Growing up in Tallahassee it's easier for him to get to the FSU campus with more frequency, so seeing Death Valley was a unique opportunity.
On the last LSU visit, Harris had this to say, "The camp was great. I had a great workout. I ran a 4.6 40-yard dash to go with a 37-inch vertical. I'm the number two fullback on their list. So right now they are getting ready to pull the trigger."
Although he projects at outside 'backer a few schools want him at running back. Harris said N.C. State and USF are recruiting him on the offensive side of the ball.
What does he prefer?
"It's going to be a hard decision because I play both and I like both. It all depends on the scheme," stated Harris. "If they play I-formation than I want to play running back. If the defense is a 3-4 I would like to play outside linebacker, so I can blitz and cover because I'm fast."
At this stage he doesn't have a favorite, but he said USF is recruiting him the hardest. Harris said, "Coach [David] Reaves at USF talks to me all the time. When I get home I can call him when I want."
He said he will likely take official visits to LSU, Michigan State, and USF. The 6-foot, 230-pounder doesn't have a time frame on we will announce his decision.
Harris comes from an athletic family. According to Kris, his father David Harris made it to the Olympics in the triple jump. Unfortunately, he didn't compete because of a boycott.
Last fall, he recorded 71 tackles and four forced fumbles while rushing for 200 yards in limited duty for the Class 5A state champions.
