Harris attended the Seton Hall-Pittsburgh basketball game held in New Jersey, according to his father, Torrel, Sr. "We had a very good time," said Mr. Harris. "It was a very informative meeting we had, too."

Terry also took an unofficial campus visit to Miami of Florida while his brother, Tyler, was playing in a game for NC State. Torrel, Sr., told us his son and the family came away impressed with the coaching staff and facilities.

Harris was also the guest of St. John's University at the Red Storm-Georgetown Big East basketball game held at Madison Square Garden.
