The Right Recruit

The Terrell, Texas, native didn't have the strongest arm or the fastest feet. But Harris had a champion's confidence that came to personify the Wilkinson era. The Sooners won 47 straight games from early 1953 to late 1957, and Harris quarterbacked 25 of those wins while leading the Sooners to a pair of national titles. Harris' prowess also helped persuade Wilkinson to expand his recruiting south of the Red River. Before Harris' senior year, OU had produced just two All-Americans from Texas. Since, Texas recruits have become the lifeblood of Sooner football. -- Jake Trotter
