Temple target Tyler Harris will visit USF

Former North Carolina State small forward Tyler Harris plans to take an official visit to South Florida, reports Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.

The 6-foot-8, 200-pounder has already visited Temple, Providence and Alabama at Birmingham. He will pick a school to transfer to early next month, his father Torrel Harris told Auman.

"We're interested in South Florida. I can tell you we're going to visit South Florida," Torrel Harris told the Tampa Bay Times. "They have a great interest in Tyler, and they just had a heck of a year. We're trying to go to a school that gives him a chance to get back to the NCAAs."

South Florida defeated Temple, 58-44, in the second round of the NCAA tournament in March.

Harris averaged just 1.8 points, 1.2 rebounds and 6.9 minutes this past season as a freshman. He left N.C. State after the season due to lack of playing time.

As a high school senior at St. Benedict’s Prep (N.J.), Harris was the nation’s 135th-ranked recruit in the Class of 2011, according to Rivals.com.
