Sleeper getting looks

For the last two seasons Los Angeles (Calif.) University had players who entered the camp season as sleepers and by the end of summer were actively being recruited and their status changed from sleeper to prospect.
Jason Robinson was an athlete prospect from University who parlayed his outstanding spring and summer camp sessions into several scholarship offers finally deciding on Boise State.
Titus Young burst onto the scene after the NIKE Camp held in Los Angeles in 2006 and like his former teammate, Robinson, he also chose Boise State over other scholarship offers after an outstanding senior campaign.
Now there is another sleeper prospect who is beginning to see some recruiting activity this spring in running back/athlete Trayone Harris (6-0, 180, 4.5).
Harris had to toil in the shadow of playmaker deluxe Titus Young, a year ago, but still he rushed for 687 yards. His junior season performance garnered him recruiting attention from the ever present, Boise State, plus Pac 10 schools Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Stanford and Washington.
The Big 12 is represented by Colorado and Ivy League colleges, Harvard, Princeton and Yale are also showing interest in Harris.
What does that tell you of his academic standing? He carries a 3.5 GPA.
What is Harris looking for is a college?
"A good education is first and foremost," Harris said. "Location will be key, but weather will not be a consideration. I don't mind cold weather.
""I want to be coached by men who will help you on and off the field," Harris said. "A positive environment, both athletically and academically will be very important."
The scouting report on Harris is he's a very athletic football player who has the versatility to play other positions if running back doesn't work out. He did his team's punting chores in 2006 averaging close to 35 yards per punt.
In the weight room, Harris benches 260 and has recorded a vertical jump just under 33-inches.
