FOOTBALL: Downingtown East's Drew Harris commits to Virginia Tech

East's Harris commits to Va. Tech

Downingtown East senior tailback Drew Harris, a 4,000-yard career rusher, has orally committed to play at Virginia Tech.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Harris chose the Hokies over South Carolina, Miami, Arkansas, and Rutgers, among others. He had 10 written scholarship offers.

"He likes the type of offense (pro-set) they run," his father, Drew Harris, said. "He should be very happy there."

Harris, a three-year starter, will be joined at Virginia Tech by Downingtown East teammate Jack Willenbrock, a 6-foot-3, 260-pound offensive tackle.

Through four games, Harris has carried carried 104 times for 617 yards and nine touchdowns.

Harris suffered a left-leg injury in last Friday's Ches-Mont League National Conference loss to visiting Coatesville. He is expected to sit out this week's game at Avon Grove.

For his career, Harris has rushed 350 times for a school-record 4,977 yards and 36 TDs.
