With the opportunity to play in his backyard right in front of him, C.J. Harris couldn't extend his recruitment any longer. The three-star guard is headed to Wake Forest.
Harris, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound guard from Mt. Tabor High School in Winston-Salem, made it official to Wake Forest on Monday afternoon.
"I thought about it over the weekend and it felt like the perfect fit. I knew the players and the coaches really well so I decided to pull the trigger," Harris said. "I've always felt real comfortable with them. Every time I've played there, they have made me feel real comfortable and made me feel like I was at home with them."
Known as a guy that can fill up the stat sheet, Harris said he hopes to give the Demon Deacons some versatility in the backcourt when he gets to college.
"They recruited me more as a combo guard. If I needed to play the point, I can do that. If they needed me to go in and score, I can do that also," Harris said.
Clemson and Virginia Tech were also on his short list, he said.
"I liked all three schools because they are all good schools with good coaches but I felt like Wake was right for me," Harris said. "I've always wanted to play in the ACC. That is one of the reasons why I cancelled my visit to Michigan because I have always wanted to play in the ACC. I'm really excited about it."
