One day after the departure of Buzz Williams from Virginia Tech to Texas A&M, and some unfortuante — yet predictable — recruiting news hit the Hokies. According to a report from Evan Daniels of 247 Sports, 4-star guard Anthony Harris has received a release from his Letter of Intent to Virginia Tech.

After visiting multiple ACC programs last fall, including Duke and Wake Forest, Harris committed to Virginia Tech in early October.
The 6-foot-3 Harris, a consensus top-70 prospect per 247 Sports, played his prep basketball for Paul VI Catholic in Fairfax (VA.). He now becomes, as Daniels described it, one of the best available prospects in the 2019 recruiting class. Harris did tell 247 Sports that he will still consider Virginia Tech.
