Arlington (Texas) Bowie quarterback Sherrod Harris is one of the nation's top rated quarterbacks in the Class of 2006. His skills show why, but the group of schools pursuing the 6-foot-3, 185-pound signal caller emphasize the reason he is among the Rivals100.
"Sherrod is getting attention from just about everyone," Bowie coach Anthony Criss said. "He is a very good quarterback and people know that. He's been our guy for the past two seasons and he'll be back there again this year.
"He has that ability to get out of pressure and make a play with his feet or stand in there and deliver the ball. It makes defenses worry a little more about where he is."
The list of schools recruiting Harris includes Florida State, Miami, Michigan, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Syracuse, Texas and Texas A&M among many others showing interest.
"Sherrod has offers already from Oklahoma State and Syracuse," Criss said. "He's in no hurry to make a choice. I don't think I could definitely say that one school was at the top of the list all the time. Texas is right up there and I know he had a good time when he was up there last weekend for their junior day. They told him an offer could be coming before long."
As a sophomore, Harris threw for 1,500 yards and 18 touchdowns while rushing for just short of 500 and seven touchdowns. He followed that season up with just under 1,000 yards passing to go with four touchdowns. As a junior and rushed for 413 yards and five scores.
