2012's Harris Picking Up Offers

Offers and interest are rolling in for sophomore Gary Harris. The talented guard already holds a trio of offers.

Indiana high school basketball is pumping out talent at a high level right now.

The sophomore class is especially loaded, as guys like A.J. Hammons, Ron Patterson and Jeremy Hollowell have already begun scoring high major scholarship offers. But there's another prospect in Indiana that is starting to get his due.

Gary Harris, of Indianapolis (Ind.) Hamilton Southeastern, is having a terrific sophomore season for the Royals, who are 17-3 on the season and have won 12 of their last 13 games.

"It's been going real well," the 6-foot-4 2012 prospect said of his season. "We have a great record right now, we won the conference and we've been playing great team ball. It's just been fun."

"I always think that I can play better, but I think I've been playing good," he added. "There's always room for improvement though."

A talented guard with impressive ball skills, Harris has the ability to play both guard spots. He's got a strong handle, sees the floor well and is a terrific passer. His shot looks solid and his range extends to the three-point stripe.

"I like to drive to the basket and get to the cup and get to the line," Harris said describing his game. "I usually knock those down. When I'm open I can knock down the shot too."

College programs have certainly taken notice of Harris' big sophomore season. He's scored interest from a number of high major programs and even snagged a few scholarship offers.

"It's picked up a lot recently," Harris said of his recruitment. "Vanderbilt, Illinois [are recruiting me] and I have offers from Xavier and I picked up one from Iowa and IUPUI. It's just been going real well lately."

"Washington is showing a lot of interest," he added. "I've been hearing some from Indiana and Purdue too."

Despite the early attention, Harris, who took an unofficial visit to Xavier on Sunday, is just enjoying the early attention.

"It's really early. I'm just trying to enjoy it. You only get to one time to do it."
