When Downingtown East offensive lineman Jack Willenbrock gets ready to head to Blacksburg, Va., to begin his career at Virginia Tech, he’ll have some company from Exton joining him.

Drew Harris, Downingtown East’s featured tailback and a three-year varsity starter, issued an oral declaration to Virginia Tech Tuesday, according to national recruiting service

Scout ranked Harris as the #23 running back in the nation for the 2012 recruiting class and a four-star prospect.  The Cougar senior is the third-highest ranked running back in Scout’s prospect list, trailing only Hopewell’s Rushel Shell (#4) and Erie McDowell’s Greg Garmon (#15).

During his recruiting process, Harris held more than 20 scholarship offers, including, but not limited to, Arkansas, Arizona State, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Iowa, Miami (FL), Notre Dame, South Carolina and West Virginia.

Through four games this 2011 season, Harris has run for 616 yards and eight touchdowns on 104 carries.  For his career, Harris has run for 4,976 yards, and is Downingtown East’s first ever career 4,000-yard rusher.

Downingtown East is 3-1 through its first four games in 2011, and 22-7 overall since the start of the 2009 season.
