Where Edorian McCullough went, so did Aaron Harris. That was the name of the game last Friday night as two of Texas’ top talents squared off. It was a war that Harris and his team ended up winning.
Playing against McCullough brought out the best in Harris as the star 6-foot, 230-pound linebacker from Mesquite (Texas) North Mesquite recorded 18 tackles, nine unassisted, three tackles for loss and held McCullough to 68 yards on 20 carries.
The North Garland offense recorded 79 yards of total offense and only crossed midfield once.
“I was in a zone,” Harris said. “It just seemed so easy out there. I had to work to make the tackles, but things just seems to happen the right way.”
They often do when you’re one of the nation’s top linebackers.
Speaking of being one of the best, Harris said he’s re-worked his official visit schedule quite a bit since the last report by Rivals100.com. He had previously said he was going to visit Oklahoma on Dec. 7 and Texas on Dec. 14, but now things are different.
Harris said Texas A&M or Oklahoma will get a visit on Dec. 7, Texas is set for Dec. 14, Florida is on tap for Jan. 11 and Florida State is last on the schedule for Jan. 18. Whichever school doesn’t get the visit on Dec. 7 could be worked in the schedule in late December or the final weekend in January, Harris said.
He did make one unofficial visit this past weekend to Texas. He said he came away impressed with the Horns’ effort against Colorado.
“It was a good second chance to see the Texas linebackers,” Harris said. “I was watching what D.D. Lewis was doing because if I went there that’s probably my spot.”
Harris said he’s also going to attempt to make it to the Oklahoma-A&M game in two weeks.
“That would be good for me because I can see two of my top teams together,” Harris said. “I’ve also not been up to Oklahoma in a while, and it would be good to check out that environment for a big game.”
Harris continues to insist that he has no leader.
