Virginia Tech basketball has received a verbal commitment from 2019 combo guard Anthony Harris. Harris, from Paul VI Catholic in Fairfax, is Tech’s first commitment of the 2019 recruiting class.
Harris chose the Hokies over offers from Wake Forest, Boston College, Florida, Florida State, Indiana, Maryland, Miami, Ohio State, West Virginia, and others. He is highly-rated nationally by the recruiting services.
247: No. 59
Rivals: No. 69
ESPN: No. 74
The 6-3 guard visited Duke over the weekend, where he watched the Tech-Duke football game. However, he did not come away with a scholarship offer from the Blue Devils.
Harris is expected to be one of many players to sign with the Hokies in the 2019 class. As of now, only seven scholarship players on the current team are projected to be back for 2019-20: Kerry Blackshear, Wabissa Bede, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, PJ Horne, Isaiah Wilkins, Jonathan Kabongo and Landers Nolley.
