The four-star running back from Fork Union had his admission to Virginia Tech delayed by what he termed a “paperwork error” last week. Still, Fork Union coach John Shuman thought there might be a chance he could enroll at Tech today anyway.
That doesn’t appear to be true, based on a couple of tweets by Harris this afternoon, in which he reconfirmed his commitment and gave a timeline for his enrollment.
I Can Enroll in May at the Earliest— Drew Harris™ (@Hollacide) January 21, 2013
The first summer school session at Virginia Tech begins May 28.
Harris’ recruitment is still technically open. Doug Doughty reported last week that Rutgers, Temple and Miami had shown interest in the running back after the latest paperwork snafu. Although if Harris’ tweets are to be believed, he’s still heading to Virginia Tech, just a little later than expected.
Seven Virginia Tech players — three recent high school grads, three 2012 signees and Fork Union offensive lineman Jonathan McLaughlin — begin class Tuesday.
