Lake Chelan (WA) guard/forward Joe Harris made his official visit to the University of Virginia this past weekend, visiting the program he verbally committed to in early August. The 6-6, 200-pound senior, reigning Class 1A Player of the Year in the state of Washington, took some time to discuss the visit, which he was very excited about before and after.

Harris, who chose Virginia over Washington and Washington State, among others, averaged 26 points per game last season as a junior. He sees action at the one, two and three positions under his father, Joe, who serves as Lake Chelan’s boys varsity basketball head coach. He met with Virginia head coach Tony Bennett over the weekend to discuss where he may play on the next level…

Q&A with Joe Harris

TheSabre.com: In meeting with Coach Bennett, what did he say in terms of how he sees your role on the team?

Joe Harris : “Him and the coaches made a tape, which showed my weaknesses and stuff I need to improve on. He went over his offense and how I’d fit in. It was cool to sit down and go through that. He definitely thinks I can play anywhere from bringing the ball up the floor to the two to the three.”

TheSabre.com: What specific things does Coach Bennett believe you need to work on most?

Joe Harris : “Some of the stuff is stuff I already really wanted to work on, like shooting and ball-handling. I work on that stuff everyday. It’s mostly mental stuff, like working in the game on concentrating more with my passes and little stuff like that, that I need to improve. I think the coaches will be able to help me with that, too.”
