However, he had as strong a summer as any player in the country, dominating events like the Peach Jam and Las Vegas Classic (highlighted above) and will push for the national top 10.

Auburn many -- including us -- wondered if Bruce Pearl and his
staff might have reached on him. Forget all of that because Harper can really
