Harrison is a top recruit on the 247 composite who lives just beyond the shadow of Ohio State University. He visited Michigan during their big win over Wisconsin, joining several other high school standouts. National recruiting expert Wiltfong changed his Crystal Ball from the Buckeyes to 'foggy.'

Below I've put in an image of the tweet, since I can't figure out how to embed those things. I've tried to link the image below, but in case that doesn't work, here's a link to the original tweet itself. Related articles are here($) and here($).
I don't have access to the linked articles, so I'm not really sure how strong Wiltfong's source/reasoning is. But in general, Wiltfong's CB is an important one; he doesn't make that change lightly.
In the afterglow of a big win with most recruits, I would shrug my shoulders. A visit's power to trigger a outpouring of positive reactions with a half life of a few days is pretty well documented. But Harrison is not your typical recruit. His deliberate, private process gives greater heft to his post-game reactions.
It probably doesn't hurt that Franklin's ineptitude was on full display this weekend. It's becoming much easier to objectively connect dots that say PSU backed into its recent success and is now frittering away the talent of recruits with Franklin's horrific decision-making. Ohio State's hiccup against Minny can't help, though I doubt it had much influence, either.
