Standout 2014 football commitment Harris reopens recruitment

By Stephen Brooks          Posted: 01/16/13 3:19pm         

Grand Rapids Christian High standout wide receiver Drake Harris still is committed to MSU — for now.

Harris, who pledged to play football and basketball for the Spartans in June, posted on his Twitter account last night that he is re-opening his recruitment after deciding to only play football in college, although he remains committed to MSU.

The top-ranked wide receiver prospect in the class of 2014 according to Prep Football Report’s recruiting analyst Tom Lemming originally chose the Spartans over Michigan and Notre Dame.

Suspicion began to arise that Harris might be looking elsewhere after he tweeted the following on Jan. 14: “Also got an official offer from Ohio state today.”

MLive.com reports that Harris plans to visit Ohio State and Florida. The report also says Harris told ESPN.com he’s looking at Alabama, Florida State and Georgia, among others.

As a junior last fall, the 6-foot-4 wideout grabbed 91 receptions for a state-record 2,016 yards and 21 touchdowns en route to leading Grand Rapids Christian to a Division 3 state title.
