"Coach [Tommy] Thigpen told me they already gave away all of their scholarships [for quarterbacks], but he was saying they are going to keep on recruiting me just in case somebody doesn't make it," said Harris. "That way they have me on backup. He said they are still going to recruit me strong."
Thigpen, Harris's recruiting coordinator, made an in-home visit this past Tuesday in which he spoke in-depth of the quarterback situation and scheduled an official visit with Harris for January 27th.
"Tuesday we set up the [official] visit," said Harris. "Coach Thigpen came by the house and talked to me about coming up there."
Additionally, Thigpen discussed the Tar Heels' offensive situation including the hiring of new offensive coordinator, Frank Cignetti.
"They just got a new offensive coordinator and he [Coach Thigpen] is taking my film up there [to show him]," said Harris. "He said if he really liked it, they would open up a spot for me."
Harris, who will also officially visit East Carolina (January 6th) and Southern Miss (January 13), lacks a leader, but definitely likes what UNC has to offer.
"I like North Carolina," said Harris. "I went up there for one of their camps and I loved it. It was a nice campus and everybody was friendly. It was all-around good."
Although his senior season didn't match that of his junior year's accomplishments, Harris was able to lead Tucker High School to a 12-1 record. On the year, Harris passed for 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns, while rushing for 471 yards and 15 touchdowns.
