Who the hell is Drake Harris?
Long time lurker
Oh boy. Now instead of just forgetting about it and moving on we get to have another 3000 threads, posts and updates full of constant speculation and hanging on every tweet before he ultimately goes somewhere else. Then we can melt down over it all over again because we will spend the next however many months deluding ourselves into thinking he might come here.
Drake isn't a different person than he was last month. He's going to go somewhere that can offer him the hype he wants.
Just let us dream so we can have something to meltdown about in a few months, ok!?
I wonder if Drake told Coach D that he'll be visiting, or if he had his HS coach do it for him?
This. When it comes to recruiting one of the Top 100 players / Top 5 WR's , Spartanram has it right. The recruitniks and the writers will love the soap opera. I can only imagine what kind of star treatment Harris will get everywhere he will be visiting.
For his sake I hope Harris makes every visit he commits to making before the dreaded verbal re-appears.
He's a frickin kid. Get over it. I'll bet you were the model of maturity and always said the right things at that age.

This he is a fricking kid needs to stop. He is 17 years old and he knows exactly what he said. Stop acting like he's 7

LOL mods deleted my comments because i called out harris for being a prima donna he is? Harris is not coming here and he made it pretty clear after what he said. Now he just wants more attention
And he committed to a school when he was 16 years old. I don't think anyone is saying what he said was right, because it definitely stung, but we're all shit heads in high school. I'm not going to have my hopes up on this situation, but if he does choose MSU for whatever reason, I have a hard time believing everyone will still hold his words against him.
No, you morons holding a grudge over what a teenager says need to stop.
MD should tell him to pound sand.
Not sure why any player on our team would want to speak with him after his comments. Every high-level talent on our roster wasnt too big time for MSU. They were adult enough to not disparage another program.
Also, dont use "Spartandawgs". Youre not worthy, turd.

Ok so I am compelled to ask, even tho I am trying to resist b/c of all the drama...
Who is on his list of possible schools? Leaders or.not, who has a chance?
I like to think I've matured considerably since I was 17 fourteen years ago. Did he make a mistake, sure. But let's not act like he committed a crime either. I blame what he said on immaturity.
How does saying MSU is back in the hunt add any considerable attention? The kid is a top recruit and has enough attention as it is. As much as some people might want to believe our opinion is held in such high regard, it isn't, so I highly doubt he's just doing this to get more tweets from MSU fans.
This guy needs to quit drawing attention to himself. Sounds like he has an ego problem at the moment. Hope he comes here, loses the ego fast. I think he definitely would with our coaching staff.
scUM and OSU are pretty high on his list right now
He's been impossible to read, which is why I've really stopped following things that relate to him (I know..I posted this thread). I thought this was just an interesting turn of events, but I think based on how he's handled this, he's going to milk the process for all it's worth.
I thought this was going to be a tanfan thread

I wonder just how much the Roushar's departure affected Harris to reconsider MSU again.
If so, then Roushar's departure has already paid off in dividends.

Its a 17 year old kid who obviously has a very soft spot for us. Its not always such an easy decision.
Even if he doesn't end up coming here, posts like this are embarrassing and unnecessary.
He has a ton of offers (I think Wisconsin just offered today). I expect him to go a high-attention school like Alabama, Oregon, O$U or *gag* scUM.
Drake Harris is dead to me unless he signs an LOI in which case he is my new favorite player.
Same deal as Auburn coaches paying the players instead of the boosters. The SEC's version of "institutional control."

LMAO!!!! Great post!
