Former LSU starting quarterback Brandon Harris has three of a possible four visits scheduled.

Harris will first visit North Carolina on March 24 before taking visits to Texas and Arizona, he said Saturday evening. The Bossier City native is expected to visit one more school, he said, but he declined to reveal that program. Harris says he could transfer to a Southeastern Conference school.

Harris announced last month that he’d graduate over the summer and transfer from LSU. If he graduates, he’d be immediately eligible to play next season at a major conference program.

Harris, a 6-2, 210-pound rising senior, started 15 games for the Tigers over his three seasons in Baton Rouge. Coaches replaced Harris with Danny Etling in the second game of last season. Harris never played again.

Center commit

LSU’s roster lists just two players at the position of center.

The Tigers now have another on the way.

Cole Smith, a 2018 Mississippi product, committed to the Tigers on Saturday afternoon. Coach Ed Orgeron offered Smith following LSU’s first spring football practice, and the 6-4, 275-pounder didn’t wait long to commit.

Smith plays offensive tackle at Pontotoc, but projects as a center in college. He’s LSU’s first offensive line commit of the 2018 class and the 10th pledge overall. He can make his non-binding verbal commitment binding on national signing day in February.
