The Wake Forest Demon Deacons have been on a hot recruiting run lately, picking up nine commmitments in the past two weeks. That recent run of success is continuing as Wake has landed one of the Sunshine State's best-kept secrets.
Sanford (Fla.) Seminole athlete Kevin Harris has committed to the Demon Deacons over offers from Alabama, UCF, Miami, Maryland and Marshall to name a few.
"He took an unofficial visit to Wake Forest last weekend and was so impressed with everything there, that he gave them a verbal," reports Harris' father Mick, who is also his new coach at Seminole High.
"They were recuiting him as a running back, as was Miami, Marshall, and UCF."
"They (Wake Forest) have been leading the ACC in rushing the last couple of years so he feels that for them to give him a shot at the position, meant that they were high on his abilites."
Harris, a 6-1, 225 pounder, played last season at Winter Springs, rushing for 1,179 yards and nine touchdowns while contributing 23 tackles at linebacker.
He had a stellar showing at the NIKE Camp in Miami back in April, clocking a 4.54 in the 40, a quick 4.12 shuttle, benching 26 reps and posting a 32.7 inch vertical jump. His SPARQ Rating of 88.14 was fourth-best of any player at the camp.
Harris maintains a 3.5 GPA and has scored an even 1000 on the SAT.
