For WR Harris, it's all about wins
Individual statistics doesn’t concern receiver Dayall Harris, who plans to make an official visit to Arkansas.
“I haven’t been keeping up with stats but I’ve been doing pretty good,” said Harris, who’s committed to Ole Miss. “I just don’t focus on it. I focus on playing ball and getting the win. That’s what it’s all about is the win. Getting that win is all that matters.”
Harris, 6-3 1/2, 185, 4.4 seconds in the 40 yard dash, of Jackson (Miss.) Callaway is rated a 3-star prospect by national recruiting analyst Tom Lemming of CBS Sports Network. He attended Arkansas’ June Prospect Camp was able to work with receivers coach Michael Smith. VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS CLICK HERE
“Coach Smith was a great coach,” Harris said. “It’s beautiful down there with all the hills, it’s just beautiful.”
Prior to last week’s game, Harris had recorded 29 receptions for 375 yards and 6 touchdowns. He knows the Hogs need receivers and immediate playing time is a strong possibility.
“My dream is to go to the NFL one day,” Harris said. “My ultimate dream is to be an SEC freshman All American.”
Harris and his best friend, teammate and fellow Rebel commitment Ronald Walker grew up together.
“He’s number one and I’m number two,” Harris said. “It’s been competitive since day care. Ever since we started playing football we always get number one and number two. The reason why he got number one is when we were in middle school I told him I wanted to be number one and he’ll have to get number two. So somehow he ended up with the football jersey the whole summer and we came back to school he already had it so I was stuck with number two.”
Harris, who said he and defensive quality control coach Brian Early have discussed making his visit in January, communicates with Early on social media.
“He direct messages me every morning on Twitter ,” Harris said. “Have a good day at school and on Friday’s good luck on the game.”
