    3.5 GPA at a highly rated private school

    2 way player on one of the better 3A schools in AL (Out of 7A)

    Had 4 Off TD's -- 2 Int's/1 P6 -- 4 PRTD -- 1 KRTD in 12 G.

    Big kid already at 6-2/185. Maybe not a CB long term?

    247 thinks Georgia leads - Mansell has a CB-6 in for him.

    Now the important stuff:

    Dad's from Gary and an ND fan.

        “That was definitely one that I definitely wanted,” Harris told Irish Breakdown. “My dad is actually a huge fan of Notre Dame because he's from Gary, Indiana, so I actually grew up watching Notre Dame with my father. It was a blessing, but I didn't know it was coming. I was shocked, but I definitely took it all in. I love their coaching staff, and it was a pleasure for me and my dad to get on the phone with them and talk with them.”

              Would love to have a 6'2" CB. GPA at a private school tells me the kid has a head on his shoulders. I won't be surprised to see some predictions come our way.

                  Yeah maybe not, but tough to say because he gets really low in all the reps. When he rises after the rep is finished he looks much taller. Still unsure, but I'm willing to take his word for it

                      Was Alpha Dog at UA All America per Ivins/247.

                      Of course, he doesn't mention ND when reporting on schools involved.

                                  My hopes are alllllll the way up. Some of his quotes are eye opening. Straight A student as well. Wants to decide soon. I actually think he's Irish and I'm trying so hard not to be a homer.

                                            This quote: “I'm not from Alabama. I'm definitely from California.” That definitely he threw in there feels weirdly important. Like a don’t even act like I’m locked into the South.

                                            Ive said on at least 3 occasions it’s not worthy griping over landing CB #5 versus #25 in a given year given how hard a projection at CB is, Harris can be that instant absolute game changer. The couple CBs a year where you say damn that kid starts as a true freshman.

                                              Well, Dale the "I'm definitely from California" quote is telling. Alabama can be culture shock for a move in. there is some strange juju down there, and the recent travail of philandering governors, justices and a certain bigamist football coach can be head scratchers.

                                              While it would seem counterintuitive, it may have been easier for the Tide to corral Harris is he had STAYED in California rather than moved to Alabama.

                                              In Saban's program you are sort of a "bubble" but when you go to high school in Alabama well, you see all the pockmarks. Even cultural and sociological say we say, Zits.

                                              I have a long time friend who is from Buffalo, a successful dad and granddad, but even he has to bite his tongue about some of the insular claptrap.

                                              I could go on.......

                                                  "Notre Dame is realistic, because I'm not from Alabama. I'm definitely from California, raised in Germany, so I'm not entitled to any of those schools and I'm entitled to what's best for me and my family. So, it's not Alabama, Georgia or Clemson — it's what's best for me and what can help me off the field as well. I believe Notre Dame is a balance of both worlds and people will be shocked… My dad did 20-plus years in the military. It's not like I've just been in Alabama my whole life which is the funny part.”

                                                        Sounds like he's got a chip on his shoulder with people assuming he's going to pick one of the 'southern' powerhouses just because he's in Alabama.

                                                        I'm not mad about it.

                                                                    I don’t want to be the cold water guy as I’m here to enjoy the early spot that visit put us in but he gives pretty great vibes on a lot of these visits. Clemson and Bama for example. So, while ND might be in the top 3 or 4 for him, that’s a Uber competitive bunch to be in.

Even in hindsight? When every visit talks about how “breathtaking” or “special” it was, it’s tough from an outside view to get an idea of how it actually went. I can occasionally tell which from a rivals or 247 story that there will be an imminent commitment (Jaden Mickey was one) but curious about an example for what the reverse looks like.

Angeli also not Elite 11. Not sure if the spring circuit also impacted who ended up invited. That’s a bummer. Well Harris a a ‘23 being there is interesting but not much else. Back in the day The Opening was worth it’s on thread might see a update or two this weekend.

Hicks and (Xavier) at The Opening. We’re watching to see where (Xavier) is going to go. Is it Notre Dame, is it Ohio State? AJ is very much a relationship type of person, so getting with those guys at The Opening, that was big.”
