Tobias Harris, a 6-foot-7 wing player from Long Island Lutheran High School in Brookville, New York (on Long Island), had a very impressive visit to Syracuse University last weekend, according to his father Torrel.

"Tobias visited Syracuse this past weekend for Midnight Madness," said Mr. Harris. "While watching the event the fans saw Tobias and started chanting on the sidelines where we sitting, "We want Tobias" over and over again."

A warm feeling was felt by the Harris family from the Syracuse faithful. "It was great," said Mr. Harris.

The evening also had a terrific ending for Tobias and his father. "It ended with Paul Harris jumping over three kids for a dunk."

The weekend didn't end for Tobias though. "Tobias watched the scrimmage the next day and then he spoke with coach Jim Boheim a lot during the scrimmage," Mr. Harris said.

Tobias also had a chance to see the campus. "The players took Tobias around along with coach Mike Hopkins," Mr. Harris said.

Syracuse is high on Tobias' list after the visit. "He really enjoyed his visit," Mr. Harris concluded. "He's been busy on several fronts over the past couple of months. He's taken several campus visits and has more scheduled in the future."

Trips to Georgia Tech and Georgia are also planned for the weekend of November 1st and 2nd.
