Harris remains committed

Tyree Harris' season game to an unfortunate end last week as Marietta (GA) lost to Lovejoy 29-16 in the second round of the playoffs. Harris discussed his season with DeaconSports as well as his commitment to Wake Forest.

Harris' 45 catches, 800 yards and 10 touchdowns made him one of the most productive offensive players in the state of Georgia this fall. Those numbers help explain Marietta's 9-3 record; a record all the more impressive when you consider how close their losses were.

"Most of my catches were short catches with a lot of yards after the catch. Screens, slants, posts...more than half of them were screens and slants," he said.

The Deacs like Harris for his playmaking ability and believe he could have a big impact on the offense right away.

"They want me to play inside and outside for them. I'm going to play both. I'll do the best I can do to help the team. They want me to get into it real hard. If I get a chance to start I will. If not I'm ready to be redshirted."

Wake had their share of ups and downs this season and Harris heard all about the downs, sometimes from other schools. "I got five offers from schools that kept on coming just because they thought I'd switch because [the Deacs] weren't doing that good. I knew what their situation was though.

"I think they did pretty decent this year. They had a lot of injuries this year. Campanaro is a guy I look up to. The offensive line had a lot of injuries so none of that is going to stop me."

Harris said his official visit to Wake will be on January 18 with all of the other commits.
