Former LSU quarterback Brandon Harris is scheduled to visit North Carolina, Texas and Arizona as potential schools to which he might transfer, The Advocate reported last Saturday.

On Monday, Harris spoke to FOX Sports and explained why he's eyeing those schools.

UNC appears like it might be ahead of the other two schools at the moment. Harris reportedly said if he likes the Tar Heels enough, he'll "just go to North Carolina."

“I like the coach (Larry Fedora) and the coordinator and the situation. They’ve had some great quarterbacks back to back. If I go there, I know I have the opportunity to win now. They have a winning culture ... I feel like it’s a good fit for me to go in there and compete.”

Of course, it helps UNC needs a starting quarterback. As for Texas and Arizona, both schools have incumbent starters -- Shane Buechele and Brandon Dawkins, respectively.

At Texas, Harris is familiar with coach Tom Herman, who recruited Harris during his stint at Ohio State's offensive coordinator.

At Arizona, he said he finds coach Rich Rodriguez's play-calling "intriguing."

Harris is carrying 18 hours in his final semester at LSU and is on track to graduate this summer. LSU coach Ed Orgeron granted Harris his full release last month.
