5-star Highland Springs (VA) prospect Victor “Macho” Harris has narrowed his list to 6 finalists. Harris, who was recently selected to the Army All-American Bowl game in San Antonio, Texas, has set 5 official visits – to USC for October 16th, Michigan for October 30th, UVa for December 4th, Virginia Tech for December 11th and Miami (Fl) for December 18th.

The 6th school, Maryland, will likely get an unofficial visit and may get it soon.

“Maryland is still in it,” Harris said. “I’ll probably make an unofficial visit there. I’ll probably make one this weekend.”

Several key factors were involved in why these particular schools made Harris’ top 6. There is much more for Macho to find out before he can make a final decision however.

“Honestly, with all of the schools I narrowed down to, I know just a little bit about each of them,” Harris said. “I know about them depth chart-wise and the coaches seem down to earth. They are not playing games, and that’s what I like. I know that about them, but after my official visits then I’ll be able to tell you why I really like each of them.”

When asked if he will take all 5 official visits, Harris responded “I’ll take all of them.” He also may take several more unofficial visits for games, including one to the University of Virginia.

“I’m planning to see Virginia/Miami,” Harris said. “I’m sure there will be a few other games I’ll want to check out but right now I’m focusing on my schedule.”

Harris made one unofficial visit this past weekend, as he was on hand for the Virginia Tech/West Virginia game on Saturday. The state’s #1 player said the experience was similar to past ones, which appears to be a good thing for the Hokies.

“It was the same as the other times…it was fun,” Harris said. “They show you a lot of love up there. The fans were wild. I liked it there.”

Stellar on both sides of the ball, Harris is off to an outstanding start on offense with 1,002 yards in just 4 games before last Friday’s 42-7 romp over Atlee. In that game, Harris tallied 220 yards total just on plays where he scored touchdowns. He had touchdown runs of 43, 57 and 50 yards. He took a pass 70-yards for a score as well.

While he easily has the ability to be an excellent offensive player on the next level, Harris believes cornerback may be the place he ends up.
