Highly-recruited Contra Costa College offensive tackle Desmond Harrison announced today that he will play football at the University of Texas next fall.
The 6-foot-8, 315-pound Harrison, a right tackle, is a three-star prospect according to rivals.com. He also consdered Oklahoma, USC, Arizona State and North Carolina State before choosing the Longhorns.
“It was a real long process,” Harrison said. “I felt like Texas was just it for me.”
He said that on his visit to Texas, he was impressed with the facilities and the academics as well as the football program. The sophomore Harrison, who was named first-team All-America by the JC Athletic Bureau for the 2012 season, helped the Comets average 30.1 points, 362.5 yards offense and 221.7 yards rushing per game last year.
Harrison played his senior season of high school football and graduated from Oak Ridge Military Academy in North Carolina.
