North Fayette Valley (Iowa) defensive tackle prospect Juan Harris is back on the college football recruiting market yet again.

The state’s top-ranked defensive line prospect in the 2017 class announced Wednesday on Twitter that he has backed out of his commitment to Iowa. It’s the third time in 18 months that Harris has reneged on a pledge to the Hawkeyes.

“First, I want to thank the Iowa staff for being true and supportive of me this past year,” Harris wrote. “I am de-committing and going to reevaluate. I will not do any interviews.”

Harris is ranked the No. 34 defensive tackle prospect nationally by Rivals.com. The consensus three-star prospect first committed to the Hawkeyes in December 2014, starting the on-again, off-again relationship between Iowa and the 6-foot-3, 370-pound defensive lineman.

He announced in January 2015 that he was backing out of his commitment to Iowa. He rejoined the Hawkeye recruiting class later that month and decommitted again two months later. Last June, he committed to Iowa once again.

Harris initially picked Iowa over offers from Tennessee, Wisconsin, Utah and Virginia before later reporting offers from Michigan, Texas, Louisville and others. He recently picked up an offer from Illinois after attending an Illini satellite camp in Chicago.
