Harris talks about his decision

New Jersey defensive end Terrence Harris may not be a man of many words, but on Tuesday he made a major decision. That was to verbally commit to Iowa as the 6-foot-2, 240-pound prospect chose to play college football for the Hawkeyes in 2014. We caught up with Harris, who still has yet to visit Iowa City, to talk about his commitment.

Q: What is it that drew you to Iowa?

HARRIS: It's the perfect fit for me. I really like their coaching staff and feel like it will be the right place for me to perform at my best in college.

Q: When will you get a chance to visit there?

HARRIS: October 5.

Q: What will be important for you to see on that visit to kind of confirm your decision?

HARRIS: Just the campus and the facilities and meet all the coaches.

As a junior at Paramus Catholic High School, Harris finished with 78 tackles, 18 TFL, and 7.5 sacks during the 2012 season. His film drew scholarship offers from Iowa, Florida Atlantic, Western Michigan, and UMASS, and interest from several others including NC State, Tennessee, Rutgers, and Temple.

The verbal pledge from Harris gives Iowa 11 commitments in the Class of 2014.
