Harris visits ACC school

The Carolina Challenge was littered with talented underclassmen, and C.J. Harris was among the most impressive. The talented sophomore used the North Carolina event as his coming out party and he's starting to get some high-major interest.

Harris, who averaged 15.4 points and 4 assists per game last season, showed deep range on his jumper and an ability to get to the rack. The Winston Salem (NC) Mount Tabor standout finishes well around the rim and is equally good with either hand.

"My coach says I need to work on my right more than my left," Harris said. "I've been working really hard in the off season on my shooting, trying to get my shot back. It's not as good as I'd like it to be, so I'm working on it."

Harris has gained the interest of college coaches and the recruiting process is starting to kick into gear for the 6-foot-2, 165-pound shooting guard. Among the schools showing the most interest is Wake Forest, and they received a visit from him last week.

"It was really good. I got shown around campus, saw the weight room and watched the team practiced. Then I got to run with the team afterwards."

After playing pick up ball with the team Harris met with Skip Prosser and his staff. Harris said the Deacs are one of his favorite schools, but he mainly favors the conference.

"Any ACC school is my favorite school," Harris, who has also heard from Connecticut, Tennessee and Winthrop, claimed. "I just want to be comfortable wherever I go."

This summer Harris plans to pay with the CP3 All-Stars, which is a team that Chris Paul started this year. They are scheduled to play in the Charlie Weber Easter Hoopfest this weekend.
