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.
