Florida still leads for Harris

Defensive linemen are always going to be a huge priority in recruiting for Will Muschamp and 2014 is no different.

One of Florida’s top defensive ends is Winter Park (Fla.) High defensive end Trent Harris who received a visit from Florida this week.

“Coach (Travaris) Robinson came by school this week,” Harris said. “That afternoon coach (Brad) Lawing came by my practice. He told my coach that I had a really good practice and that he liked how I used my hands and my take off. He said that I was a really good pass rusher and that he was looking forward to me being a Florida Gator.

The 6-foot-2, 227-pound Harris was scheduled to make his college decision known next Thursday at his spring game but his plans have changed.

“I was going to announce at my spring game but I have decided not to,” Harris said. “I want to take some visits and make sure to make the best decision. I plan to visit Ohio State, Tennessee, Alabama and Florida this summer and I should have my decision before the season starts.”

While Harris says one of Florida’s biggest rival is recruiting him hard he also says he has a leader heading into the summer.

“Florida is still my leader that hasn’t changed for me,” Harris said. “But Ohio State and coach (Urban) Meyer are coming after me hard lately.

Will Muschamp holds his football camps in June and Harris says he plans to attend one of those football camps but will most likely not participate.
