BC coach Frank Spaziani said Harris has been cleared to participate in spring practices, but that the staff won’t push him too hard because they already know what he can do.
"It’s not a matter of us seeing where Montel fits in, it’s a matter of us managing what he does," Spaziani said. "We did that with him last year a little bit, and we’ll certainly utilize him the best way we can to have him ready for the opening game next fall. That’s how Montel’s spring will go."
Harris was granted a medical hardship waiver and an extra season of eligibility. Spaziani said there is still some concern about Harris re-aggravating the knee injury.
"I’d be less than honest with you if I said there wasn’t a concern," Spaziani said. "When this procedure was done on him, we were looking at four to six weeks being back playing and ready to go and it’s now been a year and something. That in itself is a little bit of a red flag and a concern, but there are no indications now that that will be the case, but once again, we had hoped we weren’t at this point, so there is that lingering concern until he does it."
Hopefully this means that Spaz won't continue the tradition started by TOB as to continue to ruin his star players' career. However, I'm not so hopeful.
