Harrell is Down to Six

Ronnie Harrell, a shooter from Denver, Colorado, has narrowed down his recruiting list to six schools. In this report, Harrell talks about his recent visit to DePaul and what he has planned for the future.

Ronnie Harrell is a 6-7 sharpshooter from Denver East High School. While playing for the Chauncey Billups Elite AAU team this summer, he caught the attention of a number of college coaches. What they saw was a player who could knock down shots from the perimeter.

Harrell started out his playing career as a point guard, but has gone through a growth spurt to where he now plays off the ball.

"My main strength is shooting," said Harrell. "That's what I do best. I'm a versatile player, I play multiple positions. I've kept the point guard skills that I had when I was a freshman."

Harrell took an unofficial visit to DePaul's Lincoln Park campus last weekend and met with Blue Demons coach Oliver Purnell.

"It was good," Harrell said of the visit. "I liked it. We toured the campus and I talked with the coaches. It seemed liked everything was close to where the players are, and that was good."

Harrell recently cut down his recruiting list to six schools - Creighton, DePaul, Kansas State, Loyola Marymount, Purdue, and Wyoming. Next Ronnie plans on taking official visits to Purdue (September 12th), Creighton (September 28th), and Kansas State (October 12th).

Eventually Harrell will be looking to make a decision based on what he learns on his visits.

"I'll work it out once I've taken my visits," said Harrell. "I want to go somewhere where I have a good relationship with the coaches. I want to compete for playing time and develop my full potential as a player."
