The Milton-to-Wake Forest pipeline?
For the second day in a row, an offensive lineman from Milton High School committed to Wake Forest.
Josh Harris, a 6-foot-4, 290-pounder, picked Wake Forest over South Florida among his five offers, which also included Maryland, Middle Tennessee State and South Alabama. On Wednesday, Milton center Cory Helms committed to Wake Forest.
Both Harris and Helms made an unofficial to Wake Forest together on Wednesday. Helms committed on the spot, while Harris needed more time to think about it.
“We’re teammates and it will be great to play with best friends in college,” Harris said. “After visiting yesterday, I went home and we talked about everything as a family. When I woke up this morning, I was ready to make the decision. Wake Forest is the place for me.
“It’s obviously a great academic school. Everything is perfect. Their football program is on the rise, and I think they will compete nationally soon.”
Harris said he can play any position on the offensive line, but will likely end up at guard.
