Patrick ClarkeCorrespondent IJuly 18, 2013


Coveted dual-threat quarterback prospect Brandon Harris has committed to LSU, according to Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch

Harris, who had received offers from more than a dozen schools, is a 4-star recruit and the second-rated dual-threat passer in the Class of 2014 according to

Prior to making his decision on Thursday, Harris had narrowed his list down to three schools: Auburn, LSU and Ohio State according to's Gary Laney.

The Bossier City, La. native boasts a strong arm and remarkable athleticism. In addition, Harris also possesses ideal size for the position at 6'3", 190 pounds. He also has above average quickness for a quarterback, clocking in at 4.64 in the 40-yard dash.

Harris, who currently stars for Parkway High School, can make all the necessary throws to thrive at the next level. He can connect on an out route from the opposite hash or fit the ball into a tiny window on the run.

But he'll have to improve on his technique, his release and his footwork in order to maximize on his potential.

It's also worth noting that even though he's considered a dual-threat, Harris isn't the type of quarterback to abandon ship the moment he senses pressure. He has a solid feel for the pocket and prefers to utilize his legs to extend the play rather than taking off down field.

Harris obviously has a lot of developing and learning to do before he reaches his full potential as a college quarterback. But given his impressive combination of size, talent and athleticism, he looks poised to leave a mark in the next chapter of his football career.
