John Luke's thoughts

Harris is a guy that is long and rangy and has the frame to add a lot of good weight and be a big, tall, athletic linebacker after a redshirt year. He impressed MSU this past summer at one of their camps. He suffered an injury and is still recovering, but should be ready to go next Fall, but like I mentioned, I expect him to redshirt.
