At around 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds, Harris is not one of the bigger players in the country, but he is someone who does a lot of things on the basketball court. Harris is a pitbull on the defensive end, has a good feel for how to run a team, and has explosive athleticism.
"I walked in and Coach (Thad) Matta told me he was offering, but he wanted me to take it right away," said Harris. "At first I thought about it, but then when I was walking out Coach Matta told me how he was going to use me and who they planned to bring around me, and I told him not to worry about it and that I was going to be a Buckeye."
Harris continued, "I was just speechless. It was a great feeling. Committing to Ohio State is like a dream come true."
For Harris who attends Dayton (OH) Dunbar, the lure of being close to home for college was big.
"It is great," said Harris. "I have my fans and family in Dayton an hour away and they can see me play."
"I know they wanted Luke to come up today but he couldn't," said Harris. "I don't know what they are going to do, but I am definitely going to be talking to those guys."
This is the first commitment for Ohio State in the class of 2015.
