Harris declined to comment after the game and the extent of his injury is unknown. Tate, however, discussed her son's recent official visit to Florida. Tate said she was impressed with Florida's academics.

"We've been to Florida five, six, umpteen times," Tate said. "This visit we went technically for academics. They had a program that was laid out for us and they showed us how they do their tutoring.

As far as football and the scheme and how he fits in to it -- all day, he fits great."
