Just before Halloween 2014, Chandler wide receiver N’Keal Harry finally received his first offer from Arizona State. That began a domino effect which has seen the 6-3, 210 wide receiver become one of the most sought after players in Arizona for the 2016 class.
Harry has seen his recruitment blast off this spring as he now holds 14 FBS offers which include Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska, Oregon, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC, Washington and Wisconsin just to name a few.
It has been a process that Harry hoped would come to tuition one day but has received far more attention than what he originally thought was possible.
“It’s been a crazy process,” said Harry. “Seeing from where I was at to where I am now, it took a lot of hard work. But I am thanking God for where I am now and it’s paying off.”
Spring evaluation period has come and gone and now come the summer months consisting of the opportunity to begin taking official visits. Harry mentions he has three schools as of now he is planning to check out but the process still has a long road ahead.
“It’s definitely a decision that I need to spend a lot of time thinking about with my family,” explained Harry. “But this summer, I am hoping to get up to Texas A&M, Oregon and Washington.”
While all this is important to Harry and his future, repeating as champions at Chandler is equally as important to him. A year ago at this time, Harry the new guy with the Wolves transferring to the program from Marcos de Niza. With a year under his belt in the program, it is Harry now among the leaders on the team.
“I have to step up more vocally,” Harry mentioned. “Show these guys, help them out with their routes and everything. It’s easier now that I am used to the system and it should be a great year.”
Harry this offseason has put on a lot of size and also participated in track this spring running the 4×100 meter relay for the Wolves which has helped in him adding speed. Over the last year, Harry has learned what he needs to do to put himself in position to thrive at the next level.
“Now that I am starting to mature a little bit I am starting to see that I need to take the weight room more seriously, I need to work on my speed and I am seeing the things that I need to improve on.”
