Harris gets ACC offer

Last week, Lemar Harris visited Wake Forest. Later that day, he got some good news.

Lemar Harris finally got the news he had been waiting for last week.

"Last Wednesday, I visited Wake Forest from 9 (a.m.) to 1 (p.m.)," said Harris. "I had a good time with the coaches and met everybody. I toured the facilities and toured the campus."

"Then that evening, I called (Wake Forest quarterbacks coach) Coach (Tom) Elrod and he offered me as a quarterback."

Harris was happy when he got the news.

"It was a huge sigh of relief," said the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Harris, who also holds an offer from Campbell. "It just felt like all the hard work had paid off and I'm just looking forward to the future."

Wake Forest is not the only school showing interest in Harris.

"I'm also hearing from Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Missouri and a little from Clemson," he said. "I think Georgia Tech is close to offering, too. UNC has also mentioned offering."

The Millbrook standout has no timetable for a decision.

"Right now, I have no idea when I will make my decision," he said. "It just depends."

After Millbrook's disappointing season last fall, Harris is hoping to help his team bounce back in 2013.

"I'm definitely going to have to be more of a leader and help us be more disciplined," he said. "Coming off a 3-8 season – that's not what we expected – and not what we wanted."

He has high goals this fall.

"We're going to change some things and have a successful season," Harris said. "Hopefully, with me being dynamic at quarterback, it will help us do that."

"Individually, I just want to throw and run for as many yards as I can. I want to make big plays, help my team win a conference championship and try to get to states."

Millbook opens their season against on August 23 against Fuquay Varina.
