Edmond (Okla.) Santa Fe safety Khari Harding has been a busy man the last few weeks. The three-star standout committed to Arkansas in June, but recently he has been doing some traveling.
On September 29, Harding took an unofficial to Oklahoma State, to check out the Cowboys as they hosted the Texas Longhorns.
"I've been there before. I already know what it's like down there," Harding said. "They want me at a star position. It's an outside linebacker/safety spot. That's mainly what they were talking to me about."
Last weekend, he was in Lubbock to visit Texas Tech as the Red Raiders took on the Oklahoma Sooners.
"They want me at linebacker too," Harding said. "They said they want some more speed at linebacker and they know I come downhill and go full speed."
Following the visit the Red Raiders offered a scholarship, and he was honored. However, there was one thing about the visit that stuck with the standout defender.
"The main thing that caught me was me talking to coach (Art) Kaufman," Harding said. "He was straight up with me about everything."
Harding is intrigued by the interest as a linebacker but since he has never played the position he is a little bit surprised. Whether it is safety or linebacker though, Harding is keeping an opening mind.
"I would love to play safety, but anywhere I can help the team will be fine with me," Harding said.
Harding does not have a visit scheduled for this weekend, but he does have another unofficial visit coming soon.
"I'm supposed to be going on a trip to Memphis in two weeks with Phillip Sumpter and Trevan Smith," Harding said. "It's their homecoming game."
Following his visit to Memphis, he does not have any visits scheduled, but there are plenty of schools who have talked to him about taking trips to their campuses. Oregon State, Washington State, Kansas State and Arizona State have each been in communication with Harding.
Harding knows he would like to take official visits to both Oregon State and Arizona State. Of course the Razorbacks are still very much in the mix and have talked to him setting up a visit.
"I'm still committed to them but I'm still looking at other schools too," Harding said.
Harding is currently a three-star prospect and is ranked No. 12 in the current Rivals.com Oklahoma Top 20.
