Harris Has Big Sophomore Season

Tobias Harris is drawing college interest from all over the country after a productive sophomore campaign.

Tobias Harris put up huge numbers during the high school season, but the 6-foot-7, 220-pound wing couldn't lead his team to a Class AA State Championship in New York. He did, however, give it a good try.

"It went good," Harris, a talented 2010 prospect, said. "We lost in the championship, but we had a good season. I think we were 22-2. We had a great season up until the last game."

In the State Championship Quarterfinals, Harris scored 25 points, which was more than half of his team's total output, as they lost to Baldwin (N.Y.) High by a score of 50-46.

"I think I played very well this season," Harris continued. "I did a lot for my team. I averaged about 29 points a game and nine rebounds. Overall I think I did good and was just a great contributor to everything."

With the high school season over, Harris is looking forward to a big summer. He will play for the Unique All-Stars on the AAU circuit. In April they'll play in the Pitt Jam Fest and King James Shooting Stars Classic.

To go with tournaments with the Unique All-Stars, Harris also plans to participate in a few college elite camps. He'd also like to take some unofficial visits to a few of the schools involved with his recruitment.

"Recruiting is going good," Harris said. "I think I have a lot of colleges showing a lot of interest."

So far Harris claims scholarship offers from Connecticut and Indiana (old staff). He's also being recruited by a host of other schools including Notre Dame, Florida, USC, Xavier, UCLA, Georgia Tech and Texas.

"I like most of the schools showing interest," Harris said. "I don't want to put one school in front of the other. Everybody is on the same page with me. I like every school right now, there's not one favorite."
