Midwest schools set to host Rivals100 WR

Four schools could host Rivals100 wide receiver Drake Harris of Grand Rapids (Mich.) Christian on campus in the next two weeks. The record-setting receiver detailed his current visit plans on Tuesday.
"On Friday I am supposed to go down to Ohio State and spend the whole day there," Harris said. "I'm going to go down, look at the campus, the academic stuff, spend some time with the coaches and probably spend the night with some of the players.
"I am getting up the next morning and heading to Ann Arbor for the [Michigan] spring game and spending the night with their players."
The visit down to Ohio State will be Harris' first to Columbus during the spring. He received an in-school visit from their staff, including head coach Urban Meyer, back in January.
"I just want to look at the academic stuff, see what they have to offer," Harris said. "I have been down there to check out a couple of the facilities, but I have never actually walked around the campus so I want to see what that is all like.
"I want to meet some of the other coaches on the staff. I have talked to the wide receiver's coach on the phone, met Coach Meyer and Coach [Kerry] Coombs, but I haven't met any of the other coaches on the staff. Then, I'll meet some of the other players on the team and see how I interact with them."
Harris has been able to visit Michigan several times in the last couple months for basketball games, and will return for their spring game on Saturday.
"I like Michigan a lot," Harris said. "I don't really have that many questions for them, but I just want to go down there and check it out again.
"They have basically answered all the questions I have for them because I have been down there a lot and talk to Coach [Brady] Hoke all the time. All their coaches are great and the coaching staff there is tremendous. Everyone on the team too - I've hung out with a lot of their players and they are cool. With all their facilities and everything, Michigan is just a great school."
It originally appeared Harris' recruitment was over last summer when he made a commitment to Michigan State. He reopened his recruitment over the winter, however, but is now considering the Spartans again.
"I have talked to Coach [Mark] Dantonio a couple times on the phone," Harris said. "I talked to him again yesterday and he was basically telling me they were still interested in me and want me to go there, but weren't going to press me into doing anything. He just wants me to take my time and give them a fair chance."
After sliding down his interest list in recent weeks, the Spartans have regained momentum and could host the wide receiver on campus later this month.
"I will probably be down there for the spring game next Saturday [April 20]," Harris said. "I am looking at them and they have come back on my list. It is close to home, a good school also and they have a good football program. Dantonio is a good coach and they have a couple good recruits coming in this year."
The first visit Harris could make this week may be down to Notre Dame, but the final details of that trip have not yet been set.
"Maybe sometime this week or next week I am going to take a day off of school and go down there and spent the night with the players, then go to their football practice, meetings and all that stuff," Harris said.
Although Harris will have a stronger feel for several of the colleges on his list following these next few visits, he still has plenty more he see and evaluate before he can narrow his list.
"Once I go visit those schools down south and maybe go out West to Oregon and USC I will probably be able to narrow it down to a top five or something," Harris said. "I don't really have a favorite right now. All my schools are equal right now that I am looking at.
"I will probably make my decision towards the end of the summer or sometime during September or October."
The 6-foot-4, 185-pound Harris is ranked as the nation's No. 4 wide receiver and No. 55 overall prospect. He is coming off a junior season in which he put up an eye-popping 91 receptions for 2,016 yards and 23 touchdowns while leading Grand Rapids Christian to a state title.
