After attending their camp on Monday, 2014 dual-threat quarterback Brandon Harris chose to give the LSU Tigers his verbal commitment on Thursday. Harris is a four-star recruit and is ranked as one of the Top 3 dual-threat quarterbacks in the Class of 2014.
The other teams that offered at the Louisiana native, but did not get his commitment were the Alabama Crimson Tide, Arizona State Sun Devils, Arkansas Razorbacks, Auburn Tigers, Baylor Bears, Indiana Hoosiers, Kansas Jayhawks, Mississippi State Bulldogs, Nebraska Cornhuskers, North Carolina State Tar Heels, Ohio State Buckeyes, Ole Miss Rebels, South Carolina Gamecocks, and Texas A&M Aggies,
LSU was heavily favored by many to land Top 3 dual-threat quarterback as 33 of the 34 recruiting experts on 247Sports’ Crystal Ball picked LSU as the team to land him.
Brandon Harris is a very quality pickup for the Tigers in more ways than one. He is very skilled and shows amazing arm strength, pocket presence, and intangibles, but he also chose the Tigers over seven other SEC teams.
Harris’ commitment is No. 14 overall for the Tigers and moves their class to 11th overall (up 3 spots) in the 247 Sports class rankings as of 4 p.m. EST. LSU’s class also ranks 14th in the nation, according to Rivals.com.
The four-star recruit is currently ranked 8th in the state of Louisiana, 3rd among dual-threat quarterbacks, and 99th among 2014 high school recruits by 247Sports.
