BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -Virginia Tech cornerback Victor ``Macho'' Harris has apparently changed his mind and decided to return to school for his senior season instead of entering the NFL draft.
Harris sent a text message Monday to Virginia Tech defensive backs coach Torrian Gray, informing him about his reversal, Gray told the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
``Coach, I'm coming back,'' Gray said the text message read in a story posted on the newspaper's Web site.
A telephone message left by The Associated Press at the home of Harris' father was not returned Monday.
``I think it's the best move for him,'' Gray said. ``He can really help himself a lot.''
Harris had said over the weekend he was forgoing his senior year. Gray had encouraged him to return to school. The NFL committee, which advises underclassmen on where they might be selected, projected Harris as a third-round pick.
The 6-foot, 203-pound junior was selected all-Atlantic Coast Conference last season. He had five interceptions, 36 tackles and 11 pass breakups to help the Hokies to the conference championship.
