The University of New Hampshire has extended a scholarship offer to Nashua North junior Curtis Harris.

Harris, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound quarterback/defensive back, attended UNH’s 28-20 victory over Villanova on Saturday and received the offer after the game. Harris landed a scholarship offer from Sacred Heart earlier this year.

Nashua North coach Dante Laurendi said it’s still uncertain what position Harris will play in college.

“He can play multiple positions, but there’s been no indication one way or the other,” Laurendi said. “No one has given a definitive, ‘We like him in this position.’ I can see him playing defensive back, but he is a versatile kid. He’s probably a running back/slot-type of kid more so than a pure wide receiver.”

Harris said he has no preference between offense and defense.

“I like scoring and I also like hitting people,” he said.

Harris sustained a knee injury during last weekend’s 31-19 victory over Merrimack and did not play in Friday night’s 7-0 triumph over Portsmouth/Oyster River. He said he’s scheduled to have his knee examined Monday.

Harris has run for 1,425 yards and 21 touchdowns this season. He’s also completed 27 of 58 passes for 384 yards and four TDs.

Nashua North (9-0) earned the No. 1 seed for the Division I East/West bracket and will open the playoffs Saturday against Merrimack.
