Highland Springs, Va, athlete Victor Harris, nicknamed "Macho", saw a pretty good game at Michigan on his official visit this weekend -- a three overtime comeback victory for the Wolverines. How did his visit go overall?
"It was a good visit," said the 6-foot-0, 185-pounder. "The game itself was great and the atmosphere there was impressive. The players after the game were telling me that the comeback victory should be enough to make me commit."
Harris, who is ranked as the No. 20 overall player in the country and No. 2 athlete, was hosted by Morgan Trent but kept an eye on Marlin Jackson for the most part.
"He's their best cornerback and that's the position I'm being recruited for, so I watched him most of the game," he said. "I like the way they use their corners. They play a lot of man-to-man which is what I prefer and they use press coverage. The one thing the coaches explained to me is how strong wideouts are in college and that's the biggest difference. Braylon Edwards was a good example of that, he just took the ball when he wanted it."
Harris' day started in 70-degree weather and ended in the low 40's.
"It was freezing by the time the game ended, but that's no factor to me," he said. "I've played in cold weather before."
The talented cornerback/running back said it's hard to compare his first two visits.
"Southern Cal and Michigan are both different places," he said. "So comparing them is too hard. They're both great schools and do things in different ways. I could see myself playing at either school."
Did "Macho" see a more physical style of defense in the Big Ten?
"Not really, it was about the same as the USC game," he said. "I didn't see a big difference."
Next up for Harris is a trip to Virginia on Dec. 3. He follows that up with official visits to Virginia Tech (Dec. 10) and Miami (Dec. 17). He's not sure when his decision will come.
