The Tiger coaching staff continues to heavily pursue offensive lineman for the 2012 class.  Another recruit you will be hearing a lot about is Lithonia High School lineman Joe Harris.

The 6’4” 320 lbs. Harris has an impressive offer list that includes Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, South Carolina and many others.

Does Joe have any favorites to this point?

“I don’t have any favorites, but the schools I am looking really hard at are Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, and Alabama,” said Harris. “Mainly I’m just trying to weigh my options and see what each school offers.  I am looking at academics, exposure, tradition, type of program, if they can give me a good education and if they can send me to the NFL,” replied Harris.

Who is going after the standout offensive lineman the hardest?

“Man, I would say the school going after me the hardest is Clemson. I hear from them about every day.  But all of them are sending me letters and everything and going after me hard,” responded Harris. 

Harris says that he is no stranger to the Clemson campus.

“I’ve been up to the Clemson plenty of times, it’s a friendly environment.  It’s been my college dream school since I was a kid.  I can see myself playing there especially the offense they run,” said Harris.

The star lineman says he is continuing to work hard and work specifically on improving his hand placement, getting quicker feet and becoming a better student of the game.
