Mount Tabor (Winston-Salem, N.C.) rising senior combo guard C.J. Harris followed through and did indeed visit Virginia Tech on Sunday, a day after the NBPA Top 100 Camp in Charlottesville. The 6-3, 175-pound prospect had been to Tech several times for football games, but this was the first opportunity he had to thoroughly tour the campus.
“I had a real good time,” Harris said of his latest visit to Blacksburg. “Coach Greenberg, Coach Odom, me and my dad talked for a while. They showed us the academic center and the dorms. They told me about the new practice facility they are about to get.”
It appears as though the visit helped Tech.
“They are really up there,” Harris said. “I was really impressed with what I saw.”
Harris had a visit set up to Michigan for this coming weekend, but that trip will no longer take place. Why?
“I just decided it is my dream to play in the ACC and that’s what I want to do,” Harris said.
Clemson, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest have offered Harris, who is considering all three ACC programs plus at least one other. A decision could come at any time, though for now the Tar Heel state star plans to play out the summer.
“Probably Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Clemson are at the top. UVa would probably be up there too if they came in,” said Harris, who has been to all four programs.
“Right now, I’m just going to play through the summer and see what happens. When it is that time to decide, it’ll hit me.”
Primarily a two-guard for Mount Tabor, Harris, who is rated a 4-star recruit by Scout.com, has the ability to play the point and is being recruited as a combo guard for the next level. He showed off his point guard abilities at last week’s NBPA, finishing second in assists on the week.
“I think I played real well,” Harris said of his performance at the NBPA. He actually led all players in assists until the final day. “I held my own, showed I could distribute the ball and be a real guard.”
