Hyde Park's Harris is Back in the Market

After offering up a verbal commitment to SMU in early April, Hyde Park senior Fabyon Harris is back in the market for a college to attend this fall. Learn more about the class of 2010 point guard in this report.

Fabyon Harris is a late blooming, jet quick point guard who arrived on the scene as a senior at Hyde Park. Harris decided to open his recruitment back up after SMU took a commitment from point guard Jeremiah Samarrippas this week.

Since reopening his recruitment, Harris has started to receive interest from Baylor, DePaul, Fairfield, and Florida State.

Per Hyde Park coach and former DePaul assistant Donnie Kirksey, Fabyon has also recently received a qualifying standardized test score.

Harris plans on taking an official visit to DePaul this weekend.

"I'm supposed to be visiting DePaul this Friday," said Harris. "I talked to their coaches last night. Coach (Oliver Purnell) said ‘I'd fit in perfect with our system. We're rebuilding our program. You fit our style, we get up and down, and play full court defense'. That's what he was saying that I'd fit in perfect to run the team for them for the next four years."

Harris would like to play in the ultra-competitive Big East conference. "I can see myself playing in the Big East," Harris said. "I'm going to go find out some things."

Fabyon has recently dealt with tragedy in his life following the murder of his older brother Fazion two weeks ago. Just hours after his brother's funeral, Harris showed up for the Public League's Luther Bedford All-Star Classic at Whitney Young High School. Harris racked up a 26 point and seven assists performance for the South All-Stars.

"That young man is tough as nails," said Kirksey.
