Harris adds offers

An emergence at the Adidas Invitational has led to a pair of schools emerging for Eron Harris.

Indiana Elite is loaded with high-major names who have been on national top 100 lists for a long time. However one player making a name for himself now is Eron Harris. The shooting guard from Indianapolis (IN) Lawrence North High School has had an impressive start to July and added a pair of important scholarship offers.

At 6-foot-2 with an ability to shoot the basketball as well as good athleticism, Harris opened eyes at the recent Adidas Invitational. There he strung together several impressive performances helping his team reach the semi-finals of the event.

Harris came into the event with interest from many of the local mid-major schools, but now new interest is coming. Calls have been placed by New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado State, and then offers recently came from Dayton and Wisconsin.

The offer from Dayton came first, and it was a big one for Harris.

"They were telling me how Coach (Archie) Miller came from Arizona and that I would come in and make an immediate impact there," said Harris. "(Miller) told me that I was his top player that he has his eyes on. He told me about how many fans they average and that it is close to home. It was a really good conversation."

Harris says that he hopes to be able to make a visit to Dayton after the end of the July evaluation period.

Shortly after Dayton offered, it was the Wisconsin Badgers that came through with a scholarship of their own for Harris.

"My high school coach really put me on to Wisconsin," Harris explained. "My coach told them they should be looking for me, and they have been at every game since then. I talked to Bo Ryan and he told me that they really want me and that they have one scholarship left, and they were offering me."

While Harris is in no rush to make a decision, he does admit that Dayton and Wisconsin are the top two schools on his list. When it does come time for him to make a college choice, Harris knows what he is going to be looking for in a school.

"I am just looking at what type of classes they have and the atmosphere and the campus," said Harris. "I am also looking at the coach's history and how much attention the coach gave me during July."
