Forward Wesley Harris Caps Busy Weekend With West Virginia Visit

Junior college forward Wesley Harris had a busy weekend, and capped it off with a visit to West Virginia's campus on Sunday.

The junior college standout played in the College Basketball Juco Hoops Jam in Cartersville, Ga., on Saturday, then headed to Morgantown on Sunday to take in a busy day of activities.

“I loved it. Loved everything about it,” the 6-7 forward said on his way back to Lawson State CC, where he is playing this season. “It was my first visit there, and it was everything I expected. Everyone was like a family.”

On his trip, Harris took in a Mountaineer practice, had some free time with the current team members, and took a tour of the campus. He said aspects of the practice stood out as a highlight of the visit.

“The way they compete in practice and have each others' backs was a big thing I saw,” Harris said. “Everyone was supporting each other,.”

Harris lists West Virginia as a clear number one at this point, but he did not commit on the visit. He said he will likely wait until the late signing period to make his college choice, even though he has no other schools that he is looking at on the Mountaineers' level as of now. He does not have any other official visits scheduled at this point.

Last year as a junior college freshman, Harris averaged 18.2 points and 8.4 rebounds in 24 games for Northeast Mississippi CC. He shot 47% from the field and nearly 35% from 3-point range
