Harris planning visit to Louisville?

Tobias Harris has now completed the in-home visit portion of his recruitment. The five-star forward interviewed 10 big-time college coaches and now is in the process of trimming his list and setting up official visits – visits that will help Harris make a college decision. Harris, the No. 2 PF in the nation, spoke with InsideTheVille.com about his recruitment.

Tobias Harris is finished with in-home visits. It was a long process that saw coaches like Rick Pitino, Bob Huggins, John Calipari and Jim Boeheim make appearances at the Harris' home. One notable absence: Uconn. The Huskies were supposed to visit Harris on a couple different dates but didn't. Now, it looks like Uconn and Harris may be parting ways.

"We're finished with the in-homes," said Harris, adding there were no plans to re-schedule with the Huskies.

Now the big question for Harris becomes which five schools he'll make official visits to? Harris' list of Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Louisville, St. John's, Uconn, Tennessee, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Maryland will soon be cut in half. Harris' father, Torrell Harris, told the Louisville Courier-Journal this week that his son will visit Kentucky's Midnight Madness in October and that a trip to see the Cardinals is also in the works.


Harris will probably visit Louisville next month.
"That's in the process," Harris said. "They're both good schools. I don't know if the visits are confirmed yet. But if my father said we're taking visits we most likely are."

Harris hopes to get the official visit process underway soon and get on the road to making a college decision.

"We're going to talk tonight," Harris said. "I want to make my visits as soon as possible because I want to get this over with. I'll sign when I take all the official visits."

Harris told InsideTheVille last week that Pitino believes he would be an ideal forward in his system. "Players in his system like Earl Clark and Terrence Williams were able to get the rebound and bring it up themselves," Harris said. "That's one of the main reasons why I'm looking at them. He wants me to come in and be like a 3 man. He's looking for me to come in and really be solid at that spot and help them win a national championship."

"I'm considering them pretty hard," added Harris. "I like the school and Coach Pitino is a great coach. They're a great school and a great program."
