Boise State cornerback commit Reid Harrison-Ducros took some time out of his day for a Q&A to dish to the Bronco Nation faithful on his thoughts on Boise State, his recruitment and more.
The 5’10”, 165lb defensive back called me from Texas to say he is feeling really good about his commitment, “we just had coach Brown come by for a visit and that went really well, (coach) Harsin is coming by in January so I’m just feeling really good about Boise State.” Ducros added that he currently has no plans to visit Boise again before moving but he “might go to the bowl game in San Diego.”
I asked Harrison-Ducros for his thoughts on the match up with Northern Illinois: “I feel like it’s a good matchup, but I feel like if Boise executes the way Harsin and the coaches want them to Boise will come up with the win.”
The corner said he plans to move to Boise this summer: “I talked to coach Brown last week when he came for the home visit and I go up to Boise on July 5th I think, right after the 4th of July.”
Harrison-Ducros says he draws inspiration from NFL guys that are comparable to him, “Revis, Cortland Finnegan, and Brent Grimes, guys that are similar to me that are 5’11” or shorter…. I try to mimic them.”
Smaller stature is also a characteristic of his collegiate inspiration: “I think from Boise State I try to model Donte Deayon, when I went on my visit I met him, he’s my size and I want to continue the Boise tradition of having good corners.”
The Texas-product said has a really good relationship with Coach Harsin: “…he just DM’d me, checking in and stuff, he’s really good (about motivating me) he sends me motivational stuff…”
Harrison-Ducros said he is not planning on visiting other schools, “No sir, not right now.”
His individual goals for his time at Boise State: “I want to maintain a 3.8 or higher GPA, and then on the field I want to be an all american. I want to help my team become better as a unit… all 11 people on the field have to be on the same page… Coach Brown and Coach Yates, I feel like they will be able to help me grow and develop, not only as a person but as a player as well, and if it’s God’s will hopefully be able to play in the NFL.”
His team goals while at Boise State: “I want to win the Mountain West, and I want the team to develop as a unit and play for one another and play as a brotherhood, I kind of like Ray Lewis, I want to elevate other’s game.”
