Damien Harris just tweeted that he will take his official visit to Ohio State on September 6 to see the Buckeyes play Virginia Tech. Ohio State and Kentucky are considered the favorites for the five-star running back, who will announce his decision on December 13. Harris has been very complimentary of the Cats in recent interviews, talking about his strong connection to the staff and players, and in my opinion, the closer he schedules his official to his announcement, the better. Like the 2014 commits did with Matt Elam last season, I expect UK’s 2015 commits to rally around Harris and schedule their visits to correspond with his.
That being said, I hope Columbus, Ohio is really, really unappealing on September 6. Looking at you, Mother Nature.
