Irving (Texas) MacArthur defensive back Bret Harris took the varsity stage last year and the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder showed his stuff. His abilities have earned him an early offer from the Big 12.
Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Texas have all been showing interest, but Nebraska recently became the first school to send him a written offer. Now, the young man is on the scene and took his first unofficial visit this past weekend, with teammate Ron Brooks, to Oklahoma.
"I liked it a lot at OU," Harris said about the visit. "That's somewhere I wouldn't mind going at all. They just told me that an offer should be coming, so I'm waiting on that. I'm not going to jump to any conclusions about who will or will not offer me."
The Sooners make up his early top four that also includes LSU, Texas, and Florida. The first offer from Nebraska is exciting, but he doesn't know as much about that school as he does others.
"It always is going to feel good to get an offer and this one was no different," Harris said about the offer from NU. "I have a little bit of knowledge about them, but not a lot. I'm trying to learn about them here soon."
Harris says he is unsure of where he will go next for a visit. The first-team all-district selection is just playing it cool.
The attitude Harris had on the field last year has put him on the map.
"When I find what I'm looking for on defense, I know how to get there," Harris said about his style of player. "Plus, I get there fast. I make the big plays in the big games."
