Coaches Ready To Take Trip To Long Island

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a story about several college programs ready to show some more love for junior prospect Tobias Harris ...

Torrel Harris was very happy with his son's start at Long Island Lutheran. After transferring from Dix Hills West High School on Long Island, New York, Tobias Harris got off to a rocking start against Brentwood HIgh School.

According to Mr. Harris, Tobias finished the game with 31 points and showed Georgia Tech head coach Paul Hewitt and St. John's bench leader Norm Roberts that he is one of the top players in the 2010 class.

Harris, who goes around 6-foot-6 to 6-foot-7, is a gifted and skilled combo forward who can score with either hand near the rim. His perimeter game is becoming more consistent too.

Add in that Tobias is at a school that plays many of the top high school programs in the area and nationally, Harris should see more improvement in his game by the time the summer AAU season rolls around again.

Besides Georgia Tech and St. John's, several other programs are likely to watch Tobias compete over the next week, according to his father. "Syracuse, Connecticut, and Georgia might watch him play this weekend," he said.

This is no surprise. Tobias, a current junior, is a hard worker and enjoys the challenge of playing against the top talent on the high school level. We'll have another report on his play in the next week.
