Harper discusses opening up his recruitment
"With him not being there, I'm not saying I won't consider going to Washington anymore, but it's opened my eyes and made me want to look at things a little more before I decide."
This past weekend, Harper attended a UCLA get-together for some of the top players on the Bruins' recruiting radar and met with head coach Jim Mora and said he plans to visit Westwood officially next month as well as Arizona.
"I was offered by UCLA a while back when coach (Rick) Neuheisel's staff was there and I recently spoke to coach (Jim) Mora on Saturday and he is a cool dude," Harper said. "You kinda get the feeling when you're talking to him that he's going to do big things there. He's a winner. I'm going to take a trip there in January, so we'll see how that goes.
"I've still been getting recruited really hard. Oregon State is probably the most recent offer right now. Oregon has made a hard push, but they haven't offered yet and I'm visiting Arizona next month too."
Harper said he spoke to Washington defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator Johnny Nansen the day after Martin decided to join the Bruin staff and said he's still waiting to see who the Huskies hire.
"I don't know who's filling in for him or who is recruiting this area now, so right now I don't know," Harper noted. "I don't have a favorite right now. I just want to take my visits and see how it all plays out. I wouldn't say there was a specific leader right now. I'd be lying if I said there was one."
Harper also admitted that the decision is a lot tougher than he thought it would be.
"Really, there isn't a bad decision out there," Harper admitted. "I mean, to have a school give you a free education to play the sport you love, you really can't go wrong, but you also have to find the place you are going to be happy and where you fit best."
This season, Harper wasn't thrown at much, but did manage to post 35 tackles and two interceptions on defense while also racking up over 1,700 yards on offense and helping to lead Colony to an 11-2 record before losing in the state semifinals.
He will take part in track this spring, running in the 100, 200 and 4 x 100 relay and said his fastest official 100 time was 10.6.
We will continue to track Harper's progress over the next five weeks and update news as it happens.
