LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio (WKBN) – LaBrae High School Seniors Keevon Harris and Andrew Cree will both sign National Letters of Intent to play college football at Ohio University.
Harris had more than ten Division I offers. He chose the Bobcats over Cincinnati and Youngstown State. Harris rushed for over 16-hundred yards this season and 22 touchdowns, earning himself a spot in the Big 22 Class of 2015.
Meanwhile, Andrew Cree led the Vikings defense with over 80 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, and 4.5 sacks in the regular season.
Both players chose O-U…because it felt like home.
“How it was all put together, like the campus was all just like Leavittsburg for example,” Cree said. “It’s a very small place. Everyone know each other. I’m not saying everyone knows each other down there. How the buildings are set up, they’re close together. It’s a small community and that’s the type of feeling that i like.”
Harris likewise loved the atmosphere in Athens.
“It was definitely the players and the way they interacted with each other,” Harris said. “There was a moments when me and Cree were in the dorm together, and like fifteen other football players and they were just dancing and looking at each, giving each other funny faces, and I was like this is the place to be. this is nice,” he added.
