Brown, the head coach at NCA, quickly stated after one of Harris' games at FDU that his player was ready for Prime Time action at a division one school. It was thought that one course was all Harris needed to have clarified by the NCAA Clearinghouse. However, some more questions arose after this particular math course was given clearance.
Brown worked diligently with Harris and his family. After all, several schools, including Kentucky, Providence, Charlotte and Rutgers, had expressed interest in getting Harris into their schools for the 2006-2007 season.
Coach Brown stated last week he was unsure of what Harris would do, as his former forward awaited word from the NCAA clearinghouse. Today, one part of the question was answered officially. "I am visiting Kentucky this weekend," Harris said. "I plan on getting to the campus tonight and finishing up my visit on Saturday."
Harris was reached in between a flight connection while he was in Seattle. Harris was coming from the state of Alaska. "It's a long flight, I don't know how long it is," Harris said. "But it's worth it. I have never seen the campus of Kentucky before. I am very excited about taking the trip."
Ramon mentioned he still has interest in Providence, Rutgers, and Charlotte. However, Brown said he believes once he is given the okay by the NCAA Clearinghouse, that he will be a member of the Kentucky program. When he could compete for the program is anyone's guess.
But this much is true -- Harris is on his way to Lexington for a trip. He concludes it over the weekend. And then he hopes to have an answer soon about his transcript from the NCAA Clearinghouse. "I think it will be fine," he said. "I just want to take the trip and talk to the coaches. I expect to attend a college this year."
