Bloomington – The Class of 2012 is as deep a class of in-state talent as there's been in some time, and Indiana has extended a scholarship offer to another of the top local products.
Gary Harris, an athletic 6'4", 190-pound wing from Hamilton Southeastern H.S., was offered by Indiana's staff earlier this week. A versatile perimeter player who averaged 15 points, five rebounds, two assists and three steals per game, Harris now has scholarship offers from IU, Minnesota, Illinois, Xavier, Cincinnati and IUPUI.
The interest in Harris has picked up exponentially as of late. Xavier was the first to offer a scholarship last summer, while the other five have all extended their offers in the last couple of months.
The interest in Harris comes as no surprise to his high school coach, Brian Satterfield.
"(Indiana) and a lot of other college coaches talk about his complete game," Satterfield said. "They especially like what he does on the defensive end. They love his fundamentals, plus his athleticism. Those are the things that stand out."
Harris becomes at least the sixth in-state player in the 2012 class to land an IU scholarship offer. The Hoosiers have also offered Broad Ripple's Ron Patterson, North Central's D'Vauntes Smith Rivera, Carmel's A.J. Hammons, Park Tudor's Kevin ‘Yogi' Ferrell and Bowman Academy's DeJuan Marrero.
Hoosier Nation was on hand to see Harris play earlier this year. Following is a highlight package from his team's game against Lawrence Central in late January.
