For Kentucky, the impact of landing Harris could transcend stiff arms, jukes and touchdowns runs. “I think he sends a message nationally, which is what you want in recruiting,” said Mike Farrell, the national recruiting director of Rivals.com. “He’s a local recruit, but he’s become such a big name that it’s going to send a message to recruits all over the country: ‘Hey, maybe I should take a look at Kentucky.’”
Landing Harris would open the eyes of other five-star recruits to at least check Kentucky out and if Harris and Kentucky can have some instant success on the field it could lead into some five-star players actually wanting play at Kentucky.
