Harris chooses MSU

High scoring West Virginia transfer Eron Harris has decided on his future.

West Virginia transfer Eron Harris was arguably the top transfer available this off season. The Indianapolis native averaged 17.2 points per game as a sophomore for the Mountaineers, and now he will be making his home in the Big Ten.

"Eron indeed is headed to Michigan State," said Harris' father Eric.

According to the elder Harris it was the job that Michigan State Head Coach Tom Izzo did that sealed the deal in this recruitment.

"He was very down to earth and very approachable," said Harris of Izzo. "He showed a great amount of interest in Eron and our entire family as people. On the visit we all loved it. His family was involved as well as the assistant coaches, and we just felt very comfortable that Coach Izzo had a plan and that it was the right place for Eron."

Harris had also made a visit to Purdue early on, and Michigan was also very interested, but at the end of the day he decided on the Spartans.

Now Harris fills a need on the wing as a shooter who can really get hot from deep and then also has the ability to defend multiple spots on the floor.

This is a very big pick up for the Spartans, and after sitting out the 2014-15 season, look for Harris to step right in to a starting role in East Lansing.
