FBS offers continue to trickle in for L.C. Bird (Chesterfield, VA) athlete Anthony Harris , who now boasts six official offers according to head coach David Bedwell. The 6-3, 185-pound junior, a quarterback and cornerback for the Skyhawks last season, has been visiting colleges and “enjoying” the recruiting process. A decision doesn’t appear imminent.
Providing the latest on his star recruit, Bedwell said, “He got an offer from Louisville. There is also Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Richmond, North Carolina, and I may be leaving someone out.”
Virginia Tech headlines those programs that have not offered but are expressing serious interest in the versatile athlete. Where does Tech stand in terms of a possible offer?
“I think the deal with that is they don’t know how many spots they have,” Bedwell answered. “It’s going to come down to what they need the most. I think most everyone is recruiting Anthony as a defensive back. I think Virginia Tech is still trying to figure it out.”
A highly productive player last season, Harris totaled over 1,800 yards and 27 touchdowns from the quarterback position and six interceptions from the cornerback spot. Offense is a consideration by some college coaches. Harris has the size and athleticism to be a wide receiver, but quarterback could be a possibility as well.
“He never played quarterback until last year, but he did well and I think some coaches want to see how he does this upcoming season,” Bedwell said.
As mentioned above, Harris does not seem close to committing to a school.
“He really hasn’t said,” Bedwell said. “I know he’s kind of enjoying the process right now. I’m not sure where he has been or where he is going next, but I know he has been visiting schools. It’s fun for an 18-year old kid. We’ll sit down right before the season and I’ll find out where he is. He’s probably going to go to some summer camps and he might have a few more offers after that.
“Anthony hasn’t said one way or the other if he has a favorite. He’s open to the in-state schools and he’s open to schools outside the state.”
Harris was a major key for the Skyhawks last season,...
