"It's always great being in Charlottesville," said Tre Harbison. The three-star running back pledge made his official visit to Virginia this weekend.
"Just spent some time with players , met with athletic trainers ,financial aid advisors ,strength coach and watched UVA get a win," he said.
Virginia beat the Yellow Jackets 27-21, and although the Cavaliers had to hold off a late comeback from Paul Johnson's men, the Cavs had one personin the stands that never lost confidence in the squad.
"I knew we would beat GT," Harbison said.
The Shelby (N.C.) Crest playmaker witnessed one of the best performances by the running back group this season. Chris Beatty's group was able to record 233 rushing yards, the most this season, and the most since the Kent State game in 2014.
"I saw that they [the running backs] are very much involved with the offense in a lot of different ways, and that's important to me," he added, "It was nice seeing the wildcat because I do that a lot at my high school."
Harbison also was able to connect more with the UVA running backs and especially with his host, Daniel Hamm.
"He [Hamm] is a pretty cool guy," said Harbison. "Getting to know him and the other running backs was important because they will be my teammates in a couple months."
The visit also allowed Harbison to have plenty of time with the Cavalier staff.
"The staff and myself became closer because it's more family oriented," he said. "[UVA Head Coach Mike] London is a special guy. He wants you to be a good football player but also was you to be a good man."
"He [Chris Beatty] thinks I can bring a physical presence to the offense," Harbison added. "I've seen the impact Beatty has with the backs. I see that they are more north and south."
According to Harbison, the visit only cemented his pledge to the Wahoos. "I can't wait to get to UVA and hit the ground running."
As far as other visits, "I doubt [I will take over visits]"
