Harris Lining Up WFU Visit

One of the most versatile and talented big men in the class of 2010 is Tobias Harris. The 6'8, 210 pound forward out of Long Island is getting a lot of attention from colleges across the country, one of those being Wake Forest. DeaconSports recently spoke with Harris who is highly interested in the Demon Deacon program...

Tobias Harris has had a busy summer to say the least. From participating in the Reebok All-American camp to the AAU Nationals in Orlando, Harris has showcased his talents across the country.

"I felt I played real well this summer," said Harris. "I hurt my ankle in July and that slowed me down just a bit but overall I felt like I had a good summer. I am resting up a bit now but I'll be back in the gym working out soon."

Harris is a big man that has good quickness and skills which makes him a match-up problem on the court. "My versatility is my biggest asset. I am able to play inside and outside. I can take another big guy off the dribble and I can post up smaller guys. I hope this is what college coaches see when they watch me play."

College coaches have surely taken notice. This has resulted in over 20 Division I offers for Harris including the likes of UConn, Arizona, Indiana, Texas, Syracuse, Virginia, Louisville, and Wake Forest.

Harris said he is hearing a lot from Coach Gaudio and the Wake Forest staff. "I am hearing a lot from Wake," stated Harris. "They offered me after the Peach Jam. I like the history at Wake a lot and I know they have a great education. I am going to visit Wake in late August or early September."

Harris also stated he is in the process of transferring schools and could very well end up at Long Island Lutheran where former Wake Forest player John Buck is a coach. Harris also plans to trim his list in September or October and he hopes to make a decision next spring.

With the shooting guard and point guard positions filled for their 2010 class, look for Harris to be a major target for the Wake Forest coaches. Harris would be the type of player that could come in immediately and have a great impact at Wake. With his great skill set and size, Harris could potentially become a match-up nightmare.
