The Oklahoma State Cowboys offered one of the top ten dual-threat quarterbacks in the nation yesterday in lower-end, four-star QB Brandon Harris. Just barely earning that fourth star, Harris is an electrifying quarterback who is drawing interest from top programs. The Arkansas Razorbacks, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Tennessee Volunteers, and LSU Tigers are the four schools that he is the highest on. Arkansas and Nebraska have offered, but Harris is still waiting for offers from the two storied SEC programs. In the meantime, Harris has received three offers this month from Kevin Wilson and the Indiana Hoosiers, Charlie Weis and the Kansas Jayhawks, and now Oklahoma State.
Harris has also received offers from the Arizona State Sun Devils and the North Carolina Tar Heels. Major programs like Oregon, Texas A&M, and Ohio State have also shown interest in the four-star QB. Oregon, however, seems to have their eyes set on talented quarterbacks out west like Manny Wilkins.
One of the top 15 recruits in the state of Louisiana, Brandon Harris scored 38 touchdowns last season for Parkway High, with 26 coming through the air and 12 on the ground. Harris looked good after an early showing of nerves at the Dallas Elite 11, and he has proven to teams in the Southeast- and now the Midlands- region that he has great physical tools and has the upside of a starting quarterback for a BCS school. He’s the best QB in the state of Louisiana, so LSU is definitely a school to watch for as far as new offers go.
Arkansas looks to be in a great position to land Harris early on, and I would pick them if I was asked to make a recruiting prediction on the four-star QB. As for Oklahoma State, this is the first dual-threat quarterback they have offered in the 2014 class. The other four quarterback offers from Mike Gundy and the Cowboys are pro-style QBs, and Harris seems to be a QB Oklahoma State has a high amount of interest in. It will be interesting to see if the feeling is mutual.
