`Noles land Harrison despite proximity

Trust is what originally drew Tre’Shaun Harrison to Willie Taggart at Oregon. After Taggart took the job at Florida State, Harrison de-committed from the Ducks and reopened his recruitment. Now, he’s decided to follow the head coach and head across the country to become a `Nole.

Taggart knew how special the four-star athlete was, which was why Harrison was the first recruit that he offered as the Seminoles head coach. He continued to make the Seattle native a priority, despite having moved clear across the country.

But it kept going back to that trust factor for Harrison. He took a visit to Oregon but didn’t recommit, which boded well for FSU heading into his cross-country trip to Tallahassee.

The keys on the visit were to earn approval from his mother and high school coach. It was also important to make sure Harrison would be comfortable, considering he’d be moving from Seattle to Tallahassee. With a reportedly detailed presentation on both athletics and academics, the `Noles did just that.

Taggart and his staff were feeling good after Harrison’s visit, but they couldn’t be totally sure until today. FSU’s staff has now landed their number one offensive target.

Harrison is a game breaker who could turn into an instant weapon in the gulf coast offense. He’s got prototypical size with outstanding speed and athleticism. The four-star receiver is one of the most dynamic players in his class and he has the potential to blossom into a star at the next level. He finished his senior season with 55 catches for 1102 yards and 12 touchdowns while averaging a whopping 20 yards a catch.

The west coast product is ranked as the No. 161 overall prospect and the No. 7 athlete in the 2018 class by the 247 Sports Composite Rankings. Harrison will join a relatively thin receiving core headlined by Nyqwan Murray, Keith Gavin, and DJ Mathews.
