COLLEGE STATION—College of Southern Idaho All-American point guard Fabyon Harris will continue his basketball career at Texas A&M after signing a national letter-of-intent with the Aggies, head coach Billy Kennedy announced Thursday.
Harris, who hails from Chicago's Hyde Park Academy High School, will be able to play
this fall and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
"I promised we would never go another season with one point guard," Kennedy said.
"Fabyon is a player who brings toughness and scoring ability to our team. His
scoring ability also allows him to play off the ball. He comes from a great program
at the College of Southern Idaho and has won everywhere he's been. He's a nice
addition to this year's class."
The 5-10, 165-pound scorer was named an NCJAA First-Team All-American earlier this
week after leading CSI to conference and regional championships and an eighth-place
finish at the NJCAA National Tournament.
The Region 18 Player of the Year, Harris averaged 17.1 points and 5.1 rebounds for
the Golden Eagles in leading them to a 31-5 record this winter. He shot 45 percent
from the field, 41 percent from behind the arc and 75 percent from the free-throw
line, and posted a team-best 63 steals.
As a freshman, Harris helped CSI to a 33-4 record and the 2011 NJCAA National
Championship. He appeared in 35 games and averaged 8.7 points and two rebounds.
At Hyde Park Academy, Harris led the Thunderbirds to a 24-8 record and a league
championship, earning all-city, all-area and all-state honors in the process.
Harris adds to a very strong Texas A&M signing class, which includes November
signees Alex Caruso and J-Mychal Reese; Florida guard Shawn Smith, who officially
became an Aggie on Wednesday; and Antwan Space, a transfer from Florida State who
inked with the A&M program earlier on Thursday.
