Will Harris Back on Board

Will Harris and UConn have parted ways and there's no hard feelings for the New York native swingman and Brewster Academy standout.

Will Harris has no ill feelings, but he's back on the board.

The former Redemption Christian and Maine Central Institute standout, who is spending this year at Brewster Academy (N.H.), has re-opened his recruitment after committing to UConn.

``It was the best decision for both sides," said the 6-foot-6 New York native. "I really respect the entire UConn program, but they had recruited other players at my position – and it was best for me to re-open my recruitment."

Harris has already had no shortage of suitors.

Providence, Seton Hall, Virginia, Georgia Tech, Colorado, DePaul, Boston College, Kansas, Villanova and other mid-major schools have already expressed interest in the last few days.

``I'm going to wait and seriously take my time," Harris added. "I'd ideally like to play in the Big East or ACC if possible so I can stay fairly close to home."

Harris is a versatile player who brings toughness to the table.

``He's been fantastic since he's been here," Brewster coach Jason Smith said. "He's adjusted extremely well and is shooting the ball well. He plays very hard and is ultra-competitive."

``I'm not all that concerned with what happened at UConn," Smith added. "He's going to end up at a great school. I'm disappointed for Will, but he's handled it amazingly. Everything happens for a reason and he knows he'll find another school."
