Wake Forest picked up its 12th commitment for the 2013 class Monday in wide receiver Tyree Harris (Marietta, Ga./Marietta). The 6-foot-2, 165-pound wideout had offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Missouri, but chose Wake Forest for multiple reasons.
"I committed to Wake Forest because I love the coaching staff and the atmosphere there," Harris said. "I felt the vibe and connection there. My mom loves it, I love it, and it just feels like home."
Harris said he built up a great relationship with the coaches in Winston-Salem, especially his future position coach, and gave credit to his high school for the opportunity to play college football and further his education.
"I love coach [Lonnie] Galloway," Harris said. "He is down to earth and I feel he is going to push me to my fullest ability. But really I could not have done any of this without my team at Marietta. The coaches and my teammates there make me better everyday. I also am thankful for all of the other colleges that offered me a scholarship."
The latest commitment for Wake Forest, Harris joins offensive linemen Josh Harris (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton) and Cory Helms (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton) as prospects from Georgia headed to the ACC program. Harris says he is done with recruiting.
"I am 100-percent committed, and I will not be taking any more visits," Harris said.
Harris had 49 catches for 837-yards and seven touchdowns during his junior season last fall.
