On Monday, the University of Texas sent assistant coach Duane Akina into Groveland, FL to take a peek at 2013 defensive back Marcell Harris.
A couple days later, Will Muschamp sent an assistant of his own down to Groveland to offer Harris a scholarship.
Coincidence? Probably not.
Chris Hays of the Orlando Sentinel wrote that Muschamp sent a coach down to see the talented prospect after “word got out” that Texas had spent some time o the Gators’ home turf. Muschamp apparently wasn’t about to lose a prospect form his new backyard to his old school.
Seems like a pretty reactionary move in my opinion.
Nevertheless, the Gators have an “in” with Harris. His father, Mike Harris, was a Gator a few years back.
