DE prospect Harris visiting Week 1
Louisiana 2018 defensive end prospect Jalan Harris is planning to be in attendance Sept. 3 for Arkansas’ season opener against Louisiana Tech in Fayetteville.
The 3-star recruit from Haynesville (La.) High School attends the same school as current Razorbacks linebacker Kendrick Jackson.
Harris (6-foot-2, 248 pounds) has yet to receive and offer from Arkansas, but assistant coaches Michael Smith and Rory Segrest have reportedly shown strong interest. He has also received interest from LSU and Mississippi. His current offers include Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe and Texas-San Antonio.
Harris is the No. 16 weak-side defensive end and No. 40 player from Louisiana in the class.
Will be in Fayetteville week 1 for sure. #WPS ‼️?
