Two-sport star Will Harris (6-3, 185, 4.5) from Covina (Calif.) Charter Oak is one of the most sought after defensive backs in Southern California. According to Charter Oak head coach Lou Farrar, Harris has already tallied up four offers and you can expect that before too long, Harris will have several more. Besides football, Harris is also a standout in basketball.
Harris has an impressive resume of honors in both football and basketball.
For his skill on the hardwood, Harris was selected League MVP, all-area and all-CIF. He could end up getting offers in hoops as well.
At the present moment it looks like football will be the sport that will earn Harris a scholarship.
Playing both safety and wide receiver, Harris was honored all-league for both his sophomore and junior seasons. He was also chosen all-area and all-CIF for his junior season performance.
Harris also excels in track and field. He could be his league’s best in the high jump, long jump and triple jump by the time track season rolls around.
“Will has a great break on the ball,” Charter Oak head coach Lou Farrar said. “He has the size and aggressiveness that D-I schools love for today’s defenses.”
To give you an indication how explosive and quick to the ball Harris actually is he picked off four games against a very good Diamond Bar team.
Harris was so good against Diamond Bar the story goes that they dropped Charter Oak off their schedule and won’t play them until Harris is creating havoc on the collegiate level.
Farrar didn’t have Harris’ complete stats but Farrar mentioned that Harris had multiple games with more than one interception.
Harris benches 285, squats 375 and a phenomenal 42-inch vertical jump.
According to Farrar, Harris has racked up offers from UCLA, Washington State, Oregon State and Arizona.
Farrar thought USC had offered too, but he wasn’t exactly sure. “If USC hasn’t offered Will, they are going to,” Farrar said. “The Trojans may be a step behind because Steve Sarkissian was recruiting him for USC and now he’s coaching for the Oakland Raiders.”
Harris was out at one of USC’s spring practices and the coaches were giving him a lot of attention.
Michigan and Notre Dame are also showing Harris recruiting interest.
Before the end of Spring, Harris could see his offers double.
A super talent, Harris could be one of those prospects that will be able to name his school.
