Georgia OL Harris looking forward to visit

With spring ball now over, Milton offensive lineman Josh Harris is ready to start taking visits. The 6-foot-4, 290 pound prospect, who received an offer from USF will make a trip to Tampa to check out what the Bulls have to offer.

Spring football was very productive for Milton offensive tackle Josh Harris, a standout lineman from Alpharetta, GA

"The spring went really well," said Harris. "As a team we switched to a hurry up offense, so we had to get used to that, personally I worked a lot on run blocking and everything, but focused a lot on my run blocking. I think we all had a very good spring."

The 6-foot-4, 290 pound lineman plays tackle for his team, but is versatile and can play any position on the line.

"I play tackle now, but can play any position on the line. Most schools are recruiting me as a guard," said Harris. "I have very good feet, and I'm very versatile and another one of my strengths is my toughness."

Plenty of schools came by to check out Harris and his Milton teammates as he landed several scholarship offers.

"I have offers from Maryland, South Florida, Wake Forest, Middle Tennessee State, and South Alabama."

Now that spring is complete Harris is ready to start taking some visits beginning this week.

"I haven't taken any visits yet, but we're actually getting ready to leave to take a visit to USF. Me, my parents and Peyton Barber, our running back are driving down."

"I'm really looking forward to checking out what they have.

"I just want to see how everything is, meet and talk with the coaches, see the campus, check out the facilities and just see how everything fits."

Harris being recruited by USF running back Coach Larry Scott and offensive line coach Steve Shankweiler.

"I've been talking to both Coach Scott and Coach Shank a lot," said Harris. "I definitely like them both a lot, they're very easy to talk with and we've built a good relationship. I'm looking forward to spending more time and getting to know them even better when I visit."

"They say they like the way I play and have a good chance to compete early," said Harris. "They really want us to come down and check the school out and think we'll fit in well there. I can't wait to check it out myself."

Harris doesn't claim a leader at this point but does like the Bulls and knows a bit about the program.

"I don't have a leader, but I like USF and they're up there," said Harris. "I know they're a relatively new program, only playing for 12 or 13 years, but they're pretty good, and have accomplished a lot in their time. They're definitely a program on the rise and can't wait to get down there and check it all out."

The Bulls also offered his teammates Eason Fromayan, who is currently on his visit to Tampa, and Corey Helms, will be arriving to visit on Thursday. The trio has talked about playing together on the next level.

"Yeah, we all talk about it. Me and Corey have talked about playing together more because we've known each other awhile, and it be great if all three can play together," said Harris. "We just have to see if everything works out right."

The Georgia lineman plans on being busy with visits and camps and will have a short turnaround after his Tampa visit.

"I'm visiting Tennessee this Saturday for a team camp, and then will probably going to a camp at Mississippi State," said Harris. "I was supposed to go to Wake last weekend, but the coach couldn't be there, so it's been moved to the 6th of June."
