I really hope we land this kid. I watched LJ's highlight videos and while he looked good, "Danger" Harris looks incredible!!!!     I have seen Birm say that OSU has a good shot at getting him. Plus Cornell and Hilliard are his best buds (according to media).

just read that Harris will be attending the big house bbq. I hope he doesn't get swayed by the enemy.............

No worries. Hoke won't be able to pull the ribs out of his mouth long enough to say hello or get the sauce off his fingers to shake his hand.

Or he'll just refer to him as Alex...

Or whatever he has in his mouth at the time. Bet he's called a lot of kids Frank, Joe, etc.  Hell, there's a kid on the roster named Taco. How he missed the name on Berger, we'll never know. Eclaire is now a new popular name for 18 old football players.

Personally I'm not too worried about this.  I'm not sure how much of a contender they are anymore.

Its not like this guy is a five star..do not want.

I dont always root for college athletics, but when i do (which is most of the time) I choose THE Ohio State Buckeyes.

His highlight film from the opening was not so great.  4.48 40 and in the RB vs LB films he did not look quick. I think he may have undergone surgery recently which may explain his performance.

First of all, a 4.48 is not bad at all considering he is 210 and was coming of an injury. Also, he finished 11th overall in the Sparq standings which was the highest out of any of our commits.

The highest of any of our commits

*higher than any of our commits

I wish he was committed but he's not quite yet

Beanie ran 4.59, Hyde a 4.61, Clarett a 4.72, and Eddie a 4.53. He's faster than they were already, and the kid will probably improve upon a 4.48 with training and conditioning, as well as health.

Also, look at the list of fastest combine times. I see one star, one good player, and a bunch of also-rans. So, let's not put too much stock into a 4.48 until we see it in person. Meyer and Co. have coached some good running backs, and if he wasn't good enough, guys likes Saban, Fisher, Stoops, and almost EVERYONE else in the country would not have offered him.

The best part is, we'd be poaching him from *ichigan, since he was a one-time commit there.

I noticed on Twitter that he seems really high on visiting Oregon (who already has Taj Griffin, weirdly enough; but maybe Griffin is being recruited more for the DAT role, Harris for the traditional RB spot) because of his newly-built connection with Travis Waller at the Opening.

Have a feeling this recruitment isn't going to be over for awhile yet. Probably will take his official visits before deciding as originally planned.

He's OSU or UK bound IMO. Worst case scenario... Harris goes back to scUM and we scoop Weber. Not too bad.

With the relationships he built with both Hilliard and Cornell, I'd be shocked if he didn't come to OSU. And usually what Urban wants, Urban gets!

I wonder if he is high on Urban Meyer's big board

Go Bucks!

I just can't, in any scenario, see Damien Harris going back to Michigan.

Why would he be interested into going up to TSUN for the BBQ thing? Could he be secretly recruiting for OSU?

If you've never had the chance to watch Hoke eat buffet-style BBQ, it's quite a sight to see.

Hey, the commenting policy says no porn.  Even if it is only so for Hoke.

If he does visit Michigan, it will be when Clark is there so he can personally laugh in his face. He will then promptly leave...
