NYS Guard Harris Continues To Impress

Paul Harris, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound combo guard/forward from Niagara Falls, New York, continued to illustrate on the court why he should be considered one of the best prospects in the 2006 class. Harris competed with his high school team this past weekend at the AND1 tournament held at Seton Hall University.<br><br>

Harris was given the task of trying to contain Brandon Costner of Seton Hall Prep. Costner, a 6-foot-8 forward, plays mainly in the low post area for Seton Hall Prep. Harris stopped Costner's game for the entire first half, limiting him to just five points. Costner did finish with 17 points.

Harris, who recorded 14 points and 10 rebounds, also dished out six assists. He had one incredible crossover dribble that left a Seton Hall Prep player searching for his defender in Harris.

Paul stated he has an offer from Big East school Pittsburgh. "I have been hearing from Syracuse now," he said. "I am still open. I don't have a leader. It's early for me."

It is. Harris won't be able to sign a letter of intent until 2005. Connecticut, St. Bonaventure, and Ohio University were also mentioned by Harris. Ohio University has made an offer too to Harris.

Harris is expected to travel with the Albany City Rocks this upcoming summer.
