Harris is the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback by ESPN and No. 5 by Rivals. It will be interesting to see who he chooses to attend.
A native of Louisiana, many expect Harris to choose LSU, but with their recent struggles on offense and the success Ohio State and Auburn have had with dual-threat quarterbacks such as current Buckeye signal caller Braxton Miller and former Auburn Heisman winner Cam Newton, its still viewed as anyone’s race.
If Harris picks Ohio State, it would be a huge win for the Big Ten and a big blow to the SEC, as their dominance could be tested. He could make the Buckeyes’ transition from Braxton Miller in a few seasons seamless and could keep them competing at a high level for a long time.
Should Harris choose LSU, he will likely be the future at the quarterback position and would have a chance to turn around the Tigers’ offense, which has been held back by poor quarterback play and led to them losing some key games to reigning two-time National Champion Alabama in each of the last two seasons.
Harris choosing Auburn would also be very interesting, as he would have a chance to be the guy who starts a turnaround at Auburn. They have struggled mightily since winning the National Title in 2010.
Wherever he chooses. It will be interesting to see what happens.
