Athlete, Nat Harrison narrows his list down to two.

For the 6-foot-2 205 pound defensive end/linebacker Nat Harrison out of Fresno (CA) Edison High School, he has made four official visits that include Army, Fresno State, Sacramento State and UC Davis, where he has offers from all four, as well as an offer from Utah.

Even with signing day just eight days away and five schools waiting for his decision, Harrison is in no rush to make a decision.

However, after coming off a solid official visit to Army, Harrison's recruiting status is showing a little more clarity. "My visit to Army was cool and I like West Point," says Harrison, who was hosted this past weekend by freshman running back, George Fletcher. "The players were cool, the facilities were perfect, the best view of the campus was overlooking the river, I like the field a lot and the indoor field. If I commit to Army, I would go to the prep school first."

Although listed as a defensive end, Harrison could project as a linebacker as well. Either way, the athletic defender has been on the Army coaches' radar during their Cal Poly days. "I've been knowing Coach Guyader since he was at Cal Poly and I like the staff (Army). For me, Army and Fresno State are my top two options … it's between those two. I'm just thinking about the commitment after graduation from West Point."

Harrison also acknowledges that he is also starting to feel the pressure from of the other schools to make a decision, but not from the Army staff. "They have been cool about it all," said Harrison, who will be receiving a home visit today from Coach Ellerson.

In addition to causing havoc on the football field, Harrison also laces them on for Edison High School's basketball team.

Adding Harrison to the solid defenders like Julius Warmsley, Brandon Porter, Demarkus Chambliss , Patrick Jarin and others, would make for a solid 2009 recruiting class on the defensive side of the ball.
