HEIGHT: 6-foot-4

WEIGHT: 160 Pounds

HIGH SCHOOL HEAD COACH: Brian Carey

POSITIONS: Small Forward/Shooting Guard

CLASS: 2011 Class

AAU PROGRAM: Unique All Stars

AAU HEAD COACH: Torrel Harris

UPDATE: Tyler has been competing effectively in the IS8 Fall League, showing there's plenty of basketball talent in the Harris family. The younger brother of high major prospect Tobias, Tyler scored 37 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in two games two weekends ago at IS8 in South Jamaica, New York.

Harris will take an unofficial visit to West Virginia on October 4th. It's unclear if both brothers would like to eventually attend the same school.

FRANK MANTESTA'S PREVIOUS EVALUATION:

STRENGTHS: Good shooter, has a high basketball IQ

AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: Adding strength to his frame and more quickness

EVALUATION: Tyler has plenty of time to strengthen his game. He has grown four inches in the last couple of months. He can shoot the ball and now with his added size he will add more of a post game to his overall game. He is a very good student of the game always asking questions.
