Harris enjoys WFU win over UNC

Tyree Harris had a bye week, so he decided to take in Wake Forest's key ACC matchup with in-state rival North Carolina. The 6-foot-2, 184-pound wide receiver who committed to the Demon Deacons in July plays at Marietta High School in the Atlanta metro area. Harris got to witness an epic Wake Forest comeback win with close to 30,000 in attendance at Groves Stadium.

"It was great," said Tyree Harris on his weekend visit to Winston-Salem. "I went with Josh Harris and Cory Helms. The trip gave us a chance to get to know each other better. The atmosphere was crazy. I was standing up cheering the whole forth quarter when...It was a fun game to watch and even better when Tanner Price went in for the winning touchdown.

"We got to meet some of the other recruits who were they like Michael Radford, and Cam Serigne. There were a couple of new commits, Taylor Chambers and Cam Gardner, we talked to as well. I got to speak to the offense coordinator, Coach Knoor, and Coach Galloway, the receivers coach. I loved everything about it."

Harris has been Marietta's go-to receiver in their first two games. He hauled in a 25-yard touchdown in the Blue Devils opener with Newnan. In game two, he had four receptions for 60 yards and two touchdowns (22, 19) in the win over Pope. He said this weekend's visit to Wake Forest was an unofficial and he'll make his official trip to campus after the season.

"It's going to be in December or January when all of the commitments will be there," he said. "My original plan was to graduate early but I really want to run track in the spring because I want to run it at Wake Forest. I haven't talked to them about it yet, but I'm going to on my official."

Harris, who will be a legitimate deep threat in college with his combination of size and speed, runs the 100 and 200 meter dash and the 4 by 1 relay. He'll return to action this week at Marietta when they host Hillgrove in their first conference game of the season in Georgia 6A-Region 4.
