Warren Central (Indianapolis, IN) defensive tackle Kris Harley had a great visit to Virginia Tech on Saturday. The 6-2, 265-pound junior isn’t sure when he’ll commit to a school, but Tech has firmly established itself as a strong program in this race.
“Tech stands very high on my list after this,” Harley said. “I don’t know what I’m going to do yet. I have to think about it. I’m going to take one more visit. I’m going to Oklahoma over Spring Break (March 29-April 2). After that, I’m going to evaluate everything.”
Harley’s previous visits to Virginia Tech included a game in 2008 and camp last summer. This visit was much more extensive than the others.
“I really enjoyed it,” Harley said. “The first couple times I went, I didn’t get to take a tour. It was just for a game and then just for camp. This time, I got to see the facilities and I met the entire coaching staff.”
Coach Frank Beamer, coach Bud Foster and coach Charley Wiles spent the most time with Harley.
“They seem to really want me,” Harley said. “That’s pretty much it.”
Asked what he liked the most about Virginia Tech at this point, Harley said, “Just how the feel is at the place. It feels like a family. I know it is business when you get to that level, but it doesn’t all seem stressful there.”
Harley also spoke with former Warren Central star Darren Evans.
“He’s telling me how great the place is and that he is having the best years of his life,” Harley said. “He told me he made the right choice.”
A nationally recruited defensive tackle prospect, Harley has offers from the likes of Oklahoma, Southern Cal and Virginia Tech. The talented junior has 13 offers in total and has taken recent visits to Cincinnati, Indiana and Purdue.
