Originally, Virginia Tech commitment Kris Harley wasn’t sure if he’d make it to the Spring Game last Saturday. He ended up making the visit, though, because his parents wanted to see the place where he will spend four or five years after he graduates from Warren Central High School (Indianapolis, IN).

TSL: What did Coach Wiles say with respect to early playing time?
Kris Harley : “He...
