Al Harris Jr. of Fort Lauderdale would like to visit USC, Wisconsin, Penn State, Florida State and Louisville this summer and then announce his decision prior to the season. He said he may add one of two more visits to his list.
"After I take these visits, I want to go ahead and commit," said Harris. Harris and his father, former NFL defensive back Al Harris Sr. have formed a good relationship with USC assistant Grady Brown placing the Gamecocks very much in the mix.
"I really like that they always have a strong defensive line," he said. "The front end works with back end on defense. They also put a lot of defensive backs into the NFL."
The Gamecocks recent success is another factor in his interest. "The last four years...they just keep getting better and I like that," said Harris.
He has not scheduled his visits nor does he have a specific date to make his decision. Harris did say he does not have any favorites.
