Previously, I-Perfection Harris told LionNews that Joe Paterno would probably visit his school on Tuesday of this week.

"Coach Norwood came in today.  Joe Paterno was supposed to come today, but there were some complications and he couldn't make it.  He's going to come next week.  I think Thursday, I'm not exactly sure."

Coach Norwood visited with both I-Perfection and teammate Jahkeen Gilmore.

According to Harris, Norwood offered both of them scholarships.

"Yes, they've offered us both.  It was a verbal [offer]."

I-Perfection said that both he and Jahkeen will be taking official visits to Penn State.

"Yes, I visit on the 25th.  I think he's coming the same time that I am."

Harris has already visited Duke and Georgia Tech.  Other than the visit to Penn State, he has no other visits scheduled and will "probably not" be taking any more visits.

Harris also has offers from Miami, Georgia Tech, Duke, Rutgers and Boston College.

Is Georgia Tech still Harris' favorite?

"Georgia Tech is still my favorite, but I'm very interested in Penn State.  I'm definitely going to see what they have and go there with an open mind."

Harris is being recruited by Penn State to play cornerback.  He said the Jahkeen is being recruited as a wide receiver.

Do the teammates talk about playing for the same school?

"Yeah, we talk about it.  It's not like a big thing for us, but if it happened, it would be nice."
