Harris supporting Gators at UA

Harris supporting Gators at UA

Marcell Harris hasn't been able to participate this week in preparation for the Under Armour All-American Game, but he's still enjoyed supporting his future Gator teammates. The 2013 safety admits it's frustrating to sit out and watch, but he's doing his best to make the most of it.

"Just being here is a blessing. Unfortunately I can't play right now because my coaches won't let me play, but if I could, I'd be out there one-hundred percent, running around and having fun," Marcell Harris said.

"I'm not the type to sit out, I like having fun, I'm a competitor and I'm going to compete to the best of my abilities. Sitting out watching these guys, I don't know man, it's depressing sometimes. I don't know what it feels like to sit down and watch other people play."

Harris said he's been keeping an eye on several of his future teammates but especially the DBs because that's his side of the ball.

"Vernon, he's doing pretty good, locking down everybody, Keanu had that pick (in practice), a lot of them are doing pretty good, but Keanu and Vernon are on my side so they're the ones I'm looking at right now," he said.

Off the field, he said it's been great getting to build that bond with the guys he'll be playing alongside at Florida.

"It feels good, I mean, I can't play with them, but if I could play with them it would open my heart up a little more. They come in my room and hang out, we just hang out, get to know each other better," he said.

They've also been doing a little recruiting too.

"We're trying to get everybody here!" he said.

Harris said wide receiver Laquon Treadwell is at the top of his list, but he has no idea if any of the recruiting is working.
