Tech recruit Tobias Harris to reveal choice at 6 p.m.

Tobias Harris, the highly-touted forward from New York who is considering Georgia Tech among his finalists, will announce his college decision on live television today at 6 p.m.

Harris, a 6-foot-8, 220-pound high school senior, signed a scholarship with either Tech, Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Syracuse or West Virginia yesterday, the last day of the early signing period. But Harris will keep that a secret until this evening when he unveils it at the ESPN Zone in Manhattan’s Times Square.

Harris attends Half Hollow Hills West High in Glen Head, N.Y. Rivals.com rates him the No. 1 player at his position and the No. 5 prospect overall.

I agree, UT is probably the choice, but I will hold out some hope for my Cats.
He really turned up his potential this summer and will be a good addition to any school’s rotation.

He’ll go Maryland. Closer to home and a more stable coaching situation. Did y’all see Dayton beat tech in the first round today? We’ll know if Hewitt will be around next year in a month.

He goes to Cuse.. Tobias went to Tenn. to watch a game and tell the coach no in person..

Tobias will be in Syracuse next year, and be enjoying a #1 recruiting class.. Tech was never really an option… Tenn. was close, but it’s cuse.

Paul Hewitt could get the Atlanta hawks to come play in the thriller dome and still not win the ACC…its pathetic. If hewitt does his normal job of coaching, ie not developing players, Favors may be forced to stay another year…thats the only bright side I see right now. Dayton tried to hand us the game today and we gave it right back with our 26 turnovers…pathetic…I miss GT basketball.

Hewitt took Lawal out of the game with about 2:00 min left to play. Dayton scores a couple of times while he is on the bench in a span of 30 sec. Hewitt puts Lawal back in with about 1:30 to go in the game. Other than losing the game for GT, exactly what did Hewitt think he was doing ? Can someone please explain ?

Sad state of affairs when a high school kid has a press conference to announce what school gets his services for a year before he turns pro. I guess the thought of an education is out of the question with these guys! Oh well, if UGA cared about the game, maybe I could get excited like the others seem to! Yea, being only a “football school” really sux! Second thought, we are really a gymnastics school!

Recruiting is one thing. Developing players, another. But Hewitt is missing is ability to coach this team. Wins have gotten harder and harder to come by.

Tech fans are done watching poor fundamental basketball. We’re done watching guards just dribble around trying to “create”. We’re done watching games where they have almost 4X as many turnovers as they do assists. It’s too much of the same, five-star recruits, or not.
