The Tobias Harris World Tour made a stop at Maryland on Monday and Torrel Harris said his son had a “great meeting with head coach Gary Williams.”
The 6-foot-8 Harris also met Maryland’s academic advisor and strength and conditioning
“Tobias came away very impressed with Coach Williams and his coaching staff,” the father said.
The day ended with Harris hearing from the mother of the late Len Bias, who gave a “very emotional lecture,” according to Torrel.
“Mrs. Bias touched on several important issues that are important to young people,” Torrel said. “Len’s mother talked about being a leader in this world and knowing who you are as a person. She also said friends are important in anyone’s life. She also said it’s important knowing yourself as a person as opposed to trying to please your so called friends.”
Harris heads to Georgetown today and Virginia (Wednesday). On Friday, he will go to Syracuse for their Elite Camp.
Harris then heads to Louisville for the Louisville-Kentucky football game Aug. 31.
