Josh Harris offered by Wake Forest

Milton High School in north Fulton County, Ga. should have a good offensive line next season. Wake Forest has offered three members of the Eagles' line in Josh Harris, Cory Helms, and Eason Fromayan, all rising seniors. Harris, 6-foot-4, 290-pounds, has played tackle his first two seasons at Milton, but is moving to guard as a senior.


"The Wake Forest coaches came to school while we were weightlifting," said Josh Harris. "They let my coach know I had an offer.

"Last night I talked to the O-line coach on the phone. He wants me to come visit in the next couple of weeks. I'm planning on going up sometime before June 8th. Coach Himebauch said he was looking for guys who are good at both run and pass blocks and that he knows I can do that.

"There's more I need to learn, but everything I've heard about the school with great academics to the football program under Coach Grobe has been very positive. They need help badly on the offensive line, and I think I could go in there with a good shot of playing early and help out. They're high on my list."

Harris reports offers from Maryland, USF, Middle Tennessee and South Alabama. Now that the school year has ended at Milton, he plans on hitting some camps and talking more visits.

"Wake Forest, South Florida, and Middle Tennessee State I'm going to for sure," he explained. "I'm planning on camping at Kentucky and Tennessee. I'd like to have a decision made by the end of summer so I can just focus on helping my team win, but we'll have to see how it goes. I don't have any clear favorites at the moment. I like all of the school's that have offered me."

Harris is in good hands at Milton under the tutelage of position coach Todd Perry, a former Kentucky Wildcat and 11-year NFL veteran. The Eagles will run it a lot next season with Peyton Barber and sophomore sensation Treyvon Paulk.

"Last year I really improved on my pass blocking," Harris stated. "Our coach grades us out. I was in the 90's most every game. We run a hurry-up offense in a shotgun one back formation. We have a good quarterback in A.J. Bush taking over. I think this team a chance to be pretty good."

Milton moves up to new Georgia AAAAAA in 2012 with a new head coach, Howie DeCristofano. The team looks stacked with eight players with Division 1 offers, but they only have one playoff win in the school's history which came in 1953.
