Latest On Joe Harris

Joe Harris, one of the better shooters in the West Coast class of 2010, is hearing from a number of mid to high major programs...

Joe Harris, 6-5 JR SG Chelan (Wash.) High, was impressive this past weekend at the Rose City Showcase. Harris has a very good basketball body and a good-looking stroke out to the stripe.

I spoke with Harris and asked about the schools that have been recruiting him to date.

"Washington State and Virginia have been talking to me a lot," said Harris. "BYU, Utah, Utah State, Gonzaga, San Diego and Portland have also been talking to me."

Harris said three schools have offered scholarships so far.

"Washington State, San Diego and Portland have offered," said Harris.

I asked Harris if he has a leader.

"I like Washington State a lot," said Harris. "It's close to home and I've known Coach Bone for a while."

Harris talked a little about the issues that will be important to him when picking a school.

"A good education, the chance to play right away and just someplace where I feel comfortable," said Harris.

Harris has taken unofficial visits to Gonzaga and Washington State, with an unofficial to Virginia scheduled for this week.

When asked about the timing of his decision, Harris replied, "probably at the end of the summer circuit."

Harris said he currently has a 3.4 GPA.
