DE Harris gets first offer from Tech

Tylor Harris has a family connection to Louisiana Tech. His father received his engineering degree from Tech. Harris said it would be neat to play at the same school his dad went to.

Harris says he hears the most these days from Texas A&M, Louisiana Tech and Nebraska. He feels like A&M is close to offering but is does not know about Nebraskas.

Harris claims a 3.6 GPA and a 21 on the ACT as a Junior, but plans to take the ACT until he can achieve a 25 or better.

Academics is a primary focus for Harris when choosing his college. He plans on majoring in engineering and wants a school with a strong engineering program. Also, he wants a school with a successful football program.

Even though Harris' father went to Tech, he has never been to Ruston. He said his dad is going to let him make his own decision and not steer him towards Tech just because he went there.

"[Harris' father] wants me to go up there and see everything. He's pretty happy that his college has contacted me and offered me; he's pretty excited."

As a football player Harris uses his speed, versatility, and power.

Harris says he plans to wait until 2012 to make his decision. He wants to make all of his visits.
