"It's a great feeling to get a chance and finally sign with NC State," said Harris. "I enjoyed the recruiting process, but now that I've signed I can really focus on my senior season and preparing for the college level.
"I just want to make sure that I get stronger and keep on working on my overall game. I feel like I can only improve as I get stronger."
Harris selected the Wolfpack over offers from Iowa, Providence, and St. John's among others.
"I just thought the school had everything I was looking for," Harris told Scout.com last week after committing. "I liked the academics, the coaching staff, the campus and I had a great relationship with coach [Larry] Harris and coach [Sidney] Lowe. It was what I was looking for and I think I can fit into their team."
So what does Harris bring to the table?
"I'll mostly being playing the three, but I can switch between the three and the four," Harris said.
"I like to push the ball up the court and get into the court and I can knock down shots because I'm a good shooter," he added. "I've been working on my handle a lot more and it's getting better and stronger."
Rated a three-star prospect by Scout.com, Harris is NC State's first signee of the 2011 class, but the Wolfpack is expecting a letter of intent from Raleigh (NC) Word of God center Joseph Uchebo during the fall signing period.
