With offers from Mississippi State, Troy and South Alabama, 2013 prospect Jerry Harris saw one of those schools in person Saturday. The Hueytown (Ala.) High School defensive lineman participated in Mississippi State's camp and had a good first impression of the Bulldogs' campus and coaches.
"It was pretty good," said Harris. "I like how they push you. Coach (Chris) Wilson is going to work you and teaches you. He makes sure you do what you need to do. He showed me some good things on how to come off the ball better."
"Then I really like the campus and how it is set up. It is real nice here and everything looks great to me."
Before Harris and his parents left campus, the 6-foot-4 and 280-pound rising senior also received an invitation to return to campus in July. That invite centered around the Big Dawg Camp where he can compete against the best of the best on MSU's 2013 recruiting board.
"They want me back for their Big Dawg Camp," said Harris. "That should be fun, too. They say there will be a lot of top talent here and I look forward to competing against the best."
Harris noted other SEC programs are also showing him interest and he will take in another SEC West event next weekend.
"I am still not sure where else I might camp," said Harris. "I have offers from Mississippi State, South Alabama and Troy. Then Auburn is also showing me some interest. The only other trip I have right now that I know of is Alabama's camp and that is next Saturday."
Regarding his recruitment further, Harris talked well of the Bulldogs and the interest he's been shown from the coaching staff. But he still wants to take more time before he makes that crucial decision in his life.
"I think I am going to wait until the middle of my senior season," said Harris. "I just have to wait and see what all happens. I really like it at Mississippi State, though, and I like how they compete. I am just going to see where I fit best and I will know when the time is right."
