Tobias Harris (PF, 6′8″, 2010) just finished an expected visit to Georgia Tech and then followed up that visit with an unexpected visit to Tennessee.

Bruce Pearl and Tennessee are proving that they are becoming one of the top programs in the country, and Harris’ upcoming announcement is still up in the air.


NC State is still high on the list for C.J. Leslie (SF, 6′8″, 2010), who is also highly considering Maryland, Florida, Kentucky, UConn, Georgetown, and Tennessee. Oregon has also been mentioned.

Although Leslie plays his high school ball in NC State’s backyard, he’s not on an imminent timetable like Harris at this point.

Saying "high on the list" is possibly a misnomer, since Leslie has maintained no favorites at this time.

As for Leslie’s skills and game, I will have more in the near future, but from my perspective, he’s much more of a three than a four, can shoot from outside, and plays facing the basket.
