"Counzo Martin and Tracy Webster have done a phenomenal job recruiting him," Silver said. "They are building something very special at Cal. He's one of the most underrated players in the country. He's had an unbelievable spring and summer and he's only 16 years old. He continues to evolve and is going to be a very good player in the PAC-12."
Harris-Dyson had a wide range of college interest, including UTEP, Utah State, Tulane, Nevada, Stanford among others.
"It's just really a family atmosphere and they have everything I'm looking for in a school," Harris-Dyson said. "It's not too far from home. It's only a hour flight and a five hour drive. The place is just beautiful."
"The coaches are down to earth and they are just real with me," he added."
A four-star prospect, Harris-Dyson is regarded as the No. 25 shooting guard in the 2017 class. Just 16 years old and still developing, Scout analyst Josh Gershon believes Harris-Dyson has significant potential.
"Juhwan Harris-Dyson is a versatile and athletic guard who will be able to play and defend multiple positions," Gershon said. "He's got good size, length and always plays hard. He can handle the ball and create or attack the basket. Harris-Dyson rebounds well for the position. He's a player with a high ceiling."
"They told me that they are going to use me as a two, most likely," Harris-Dyson said about how California plans to use him. "They told me that my shot is getting better and they aren't worried about it, because that it will come and that I have good defensively abilities."
Harris-Tyson is California's third pledge of the 2017 recruiting class. He joins top 100 guard Jemarl Baker and three-star guard Alec Hickman to make up their current group.
