There's a chance that Richardson (Texas) Berkner point guard Kendal Harris (6-4, 195) could soon be in "The Lab" – but it would be with a basketball instead of a pen and a pad.
Instead of just being a line from a popular Dr. Dre song, this Lab would be the Razorbacks' new planned practice facility – something that the Razorback coaches shared with Harris on his unofficial visit on Thursday.
"It's looks great to me," Harris said. "The players and coaches are all excited about it and I can understand why. They said that the players will be able to get in and shoot anytime and work on their game and that really interests me. I want to go to a place where I can work on my game at any time."
Harris was pleased with everything that Arkansas had to offer.
"It is an A-1 school, a big-time basketball school that is going to get back to being one of the elite schools," Harris said. "I really enjoyed being around the coaches and players. I got to run up and down and play some basketball with the players and I was really impressed with the talent that they have."
Harris, who plans to make a decision before his senior season starts, said Razorback head coach Mike Anderson impressed him.
"He knows exactly what he wants to do with the program and I like his vision," Harris said. "I love his style of play, just getting up and down the floor, putting on defensive pressure and getting out and running. It fits me."
Harris a three-star prospect according to Scout.com and in the top 100 in some rankings, is similar to current Arkansas sophomore guard B.J. Young.
Young is expected to be a top pick in the 2013 NBA draft and would leave a spot for Harris to step into at Arkansas.
"I got a chance to play with him today and he is a great player," Harris said. "I think we are a lot like. We both can shoot the ball and get it to the rim and are not afraid of the spotlight."
Harris, whose brother Terrel plays for the Miami Heat, will visit TCU on Friday and Texas on Saturday.
He took in the Heat's victory parade on Monday.
"It's been a fun week," Harris said.
