Getting To Know: Drake Harris

His junior highlights thanks to 247 sports.

Drake Harris is the complete package.

Drake Harris is a beast.

Drake Harris is the top reciever in the nation IMO.

Drake Harris is arguably the top reciever in the nation.  At 6’3 175 (Scout) Drake has all the abilities and assets any coach looks for in a reciever.  He can beat you with his speed, he can go over you and catch the ball, he can turn a 2 yard pass into an 80 yard TD, he is the complete package like I mentioned.

For some time now he has been committed to MSU but with all the speculation and recent interest his recruitment has reopened.  Seems like almost every school in the nation is after this kid, and from watching his film it is pretty clear why.  He broke the record for recieving yards in a season for Michigan high school football this past fall and has even greater visions in mind.

Earlier tonight I was able to chat with Drake and here is what he had to say..

-Reopened Recruitment?, “Yes I have reopened my recruitment.  It has been reopened since I decided that I will JUST be playing football at the next level.”

-Schools being considered, “Michigan, MSU, OSU, Florida, Alabama, ND, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Georgia.  For me all schools are even.”

-Thoughts on Michigan, “They are a great school and it is in state.  They have a great coaching staff, great tradition, and really nice facilities.  Not to mention an awesome education.”

-Visit, “I might be up there in two weeks, on the 24th.”

-Talks with Wilton Speight, “He has been telling me that he wants a top reciever like myself to throw to.  He wants to stay in touch and he said that he wants to hopefully meet up with me and throw with me the next time he is up there.”

At this point Drake does not have a set decision date, especially with the fact that schools are in contact with him very nearly every day.  His recruitment has really picked up as of late and should continue on that way.

IMO there is great interest in Michigan from Drake.  He seems to like everything that Michigan has to offer and the fact that Wilton Speight is already in his ear should bode well for the Wolverines.

Drake along with Malik McDowell are arguably the two top players both in the state and also in the country.  If Michigan can land Tommy Doles I feel that would also really help Michigan’s chances.  If he is truly only interested in football I see his top list coming down to Michigan, ND, OSU, and Alabama with Florida close behind.

Drake is a 5* talent, no questions asked and is a game changer.  Harris is that top reciever Coach Hoke has been looking for the last two years and would instantly step in and make an impact.  If Drake gets up for a visit later this month I should speak with him shortly there after.

Overall I say Michigan has a very good chance at landing Drake.  I view him as another MUST HAVE for Michigan in the 2014 class.  With Michigan only having 14 more spots open, Drake would be a perfect addition to the class.  We will be staying in touch with Drake as his recruitment goes on. Stay tuned to and as always, GO BLUE!
