Reporter Mike Sullivan has an update on Tobias Harris' official visit to Tennessee this weekend. We spoke to Tobias' dad, Torrel, about how the trip went to the SEC school ...

Tobias Harris, a 6-foot-9 wing forward from Half Hollows Hills West High School in Dix Hills, New York, completed his second official visit, a trip to Tennessee.

According to Tobias' dad, Torrel, the visit to the SEC program went well and included a surprise meeting.

"We met Bernard King who was staying at our hotel," said Mr. Harris. "Bernard was attending a conference and we had the opportunity to speak with him about a lot of things."

Harris, considered among the best players in the 2010 class, has already taken a trip to Syracuse. He has discussed taking several more visits before choosing a school.

But, this weekend, Tennessee was on his mind. "It was great speaking with one of the greatest forwards who played the game," said Mr. Harris, speaking about King, the former great NBA player and Tennessee Alum.

Harris also had a chance to meet the players and spend time with important members of the school. "We met with academic dean of business who talked with us about the business school requirements," said Mr. Harris. "We also toured the school and watched Tennessee football team beat Georgia."
