One of the nation’s top-ranked athletes has begun to trim some of the fat in his recruitment.
On Saturday, Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab product Christian Harris announced his top 10, and the Texas Longhorns made the cut. Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Mississippi State, LSU, Georgia, Florida State and Texas A&M all remain in the mix, as well.
“After a long talk with my family, we’ve decided that it’s time to cut my list and focus on these 10 schools,” Harris said.

Harris holds 23 offers, and his cut eliminated programs including Kansas State, Kentucky, Houston, Florida and TCU, among numerous others.
As his list would indicate, Harris may be leaning toward suiting up in the SEC, and thus far, only LSU and Alabama have been projected as potential landing spots, per his Crystal Ball.
A 6-foot-1, 225-pound prospect, Harris plays both wide receiver and cornerback for University Lab.
As far as Texas in concerned, the Longhorns offered Harris on Feb. 22 and the staff has remained in contact, but at this point, there’s little reason to believe Texas has much momentum going forward. That could change if Tom Herman and his staff can get Harris on campus for a visit in the near future, but the Longhorns also have prioritized a handful of other prospects at receiver and defensive back this cycle.
The Louisiana native is ranked as the nation’s No. 208 player, No. 16 athlete and the No. 10 player in Louisiana, per the 247Sports composite.
