Lakeland (Fla.) Kathleen tight end Kerwin Harrison said the first week of spring practice has gone well for him and his teammates.
"Spring ball has been great so far," Harrison said. "Everyone is doing good, moving around well, and we are getting the feel of the game again. We have a lot of offense coming back but not so much on defense. We have a lot of young guys on defense that will have to step up."
Harrison is a versatile offensive player for Kathleen as he works at wide receiver, tight end, and out of the backfield as an h-back. At the collegiate level, he expects to settle in at tight end. So far, he holds a half-dozen offers.
"I have been offered by USF, Rutgers, FIU, FAU, Iowa State, and Louisville," Harrison said.
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound target claims no leader at this point in his recruitment, but he does hold the South Florida Bulls in high regard after being able to make it on their campus earlier this spring.
"I like USF a lot," Harrison said. "I went to their spring game and a junior day. I really liked it there. I saw that they have good facilities and a lot of new stuff. Their campus is expanding. The coaches felt like a good family situation. I felt like I knew the coaches for a long time when I had just met them. It felt like a good, stable home feeling."
"I liked their offense," Harrison added. "They have a spread-type pro-style where they use their tight end and flex him out, use him as an h-back sometimes. So I could see myself doing that."
So far this spring, schools such as Bethune-Cookman, Central Florida, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Memphis, South Florida, and others have made their way by Kathleen.
After the spring concludes, Harrison said he wants to visit some team camps over the summer but hasn't made any specific plans at this point.
