The first scholarship offer Kurt Roper handed out in his first week on the job as Florida’s offensive coordinator went to quarterback Treon Harris (5-11, 180, Miami, FL Booker T. Washington), who just happens to be committed to Florida State. The offer got Harris’ immediate attention because he’s quite familiar with the tradition that Florida has had in recent years.
“It’s a great program at Florida,” Harris said. “Florida has been one of the top programs in the country for awhile now. Florida produces a lot of players to the NFL and they usually succeed in the NFL once they get there.”
Once Harris received the offer from Florida it didn’t take long for the Florida State commit to decide he will make a visit to Gainesville as soon as possible.
“I’m visiting Florida this weekend and my mom, my aunt and probably my dad are all going with me,” Harris said. “I want to see what’s going on with the program and how they want to use me at Florida. I know I’m playing quarterback but I want to see the offense and how they will use me in their style of offense and stuff like that.”
Not many prospects in the country have talked to Roper since he has been hired at Florida but Harris received a call from him and liked the message he got from the Gators’ offensive coordinator.
“I talked to Coach Roper last week,” Harris said. “He was telling me that I was the number one players on his board that he wants and that I fit his style offense that he runs perfect. He wants me to be a Florida Gator.”
Harris has been committed to the Seminoles since last summer and right now he doesn’t know what it would take for him to flip to another school.
“I can’t call it, Sir,” Harris said of what it would take for another school to flip him. “I just need to check everything out and see what’s best for me and my family.”
Not only will Harris visit Florida but he will also visit another SEC program as well as the hometown school who just recently offered Harris as well.
“I’m visiting Auburn on the 24th and Miami on the 31st,” Harris said. “I’ll make my final decision on signing day.”
