Three-star offensive guard Antonio Harris of Upper Marlboro (Md.) Wise is focused on two schools at this time. However, the 6-foot-3, 311-pounder maintains that one other school could still pull his interest as they are monitoring him at this time.
"I haven't committed, but I'm honestly looking at two schools, Buffalo and Old Dominion," he said. "Old Dominion is because they are going Division I next year. They are starting out new. Buffalo, I just love it. I've talked to the coaches."
He went a bit further on the two options.

"Honestly with Old Dominion, my position coach, the coach recruiting me reminds me so much of my coach with the way he carries himself," he said. "They offered me on defense, but said I can play whatever. I want to play offense in college if possible. As for Buffalo, the main reason I like them is because of the cold. I love that they want me down there. You always want to go to a place that feels like they want you bad. They are family oriented and care."
Meanwhile, Maryland, Rutgers and Virginia continue to watch the lineman.
"Maryland is waiting on my grades, but I don't think I want to go to Maryland," he said. "Virginia is waiting on my SAT scores and Rutgers is waiting to see my first three games. "
Only one of these three is currently standing out to Harris.
"There is only one school I'd really change for from the top two and that would be Rutgers," he said. "I liked what I saw when I went up there in tenth grade and I've met their new coach and line coach. I love the line coach and their whole commitment to football. It's all about football."
However, right now, Harris seems to be leaning heavily towards Old Dominion of his options.
"I'm not trying to wait too long," he said. "I do have two guys going there and two players already there, so I know what's going on there."
Harris noted plans to take an official to Buffalo after the championship game at the end of the season. He is also working on a trip to Old Dominion soon after that, but noted he is strongly thinking about deciding earlier too.
"I want to get the process over with," said Harris. "I don't want to keep leading people on."
Harris plans to participate in the Chesapeake Bowl and Crab Bowl following the season. He has also helped his team to a 4-0 start.
"I'm having a good year," he said. "Offensively, I feel like I'm playing better. I am still getting used to playing both ways all the time though."
