John Tyler OL Adrian Harris Commits To Central Arkansas
It didn't take long for John Tyler right tackle Adrian Harris to mull over Central Arkansas' invitation.
Harris (6-4, 289) committed to the Bears program Monday morning after receiving a college football scholarship opportunity Sunday evening. The official John Tyler football Twitter account first reported the news.
Central Arkansas is coming off a 7-4 season, including a 7-2 mark in Southland Conference play. It finished the year in a tie for second place within the league alongside Sam Houston State with two East Texans on the roster.
Harris helped guide John Tyler to a District 16-5A championship during his senior year as well as an appearance in the Class 5A Division I area round. The team finished the year with an 8-4 record.
As a junior, he guided the team to a Class 5A Division I state semifinals appearance and a 12-3 overall record.
In addition to grading out at 89 percent with 52 knockdowns this past season, Harris spent some time at defensive tackle. He recorded seven tackles, including two sacks.
Harris is Central Arkansas' first East Texan within its 2016 recruiting class.
The university previously offered Daingerfield receiver Denzel Mims, Liberty-Eylau safety Andre Wiley Jr. and Newton running back Gabe Foster. Those three players ultimately accepted offers from different schools.
Harris will join former New Boston standout Hunter Lee, a 2015 graduate, as part of the Bears' offensive line unit.
Like all senior football players with scholarship opportunities, Harris will become eligible to sign with any program that offers him Wednesday.
