Long Island Soph Is An Attractive Prospect

Reporter Mike Sullivan discusses the individual game of Long Island Lutheran High School sophomore Tyler Harris, who has a wide range of college interest in his recruiting process ...

PLAYER PROFILE: Tyler Harris

HEIGHT: 6-foot-6

WEIGHT: 173 pounds

HIGH SCHOOL: Long Island Lutheran in Brookville, N.Y.

HIGH SCHOOL HEAD COACH: Brian Carey

POSITIONS: Shooting Guard/Point Guard/Small Forward/

CLASS: 2011 Class

AAU PROGRAM: Unique All Stars

AAU HEAD COACH: Torrel Harris

RECRUITING UPDATE: Tyler Harris, when given the playing time, is an effective swingman who had shown dramatic improvement in his individual game over the past year.

Harris is bigger, faster, smarter and more capable of producing points. He has quick feet, is nimble around the basket, and finds open spots on the floor to get off his short jumper.

As his consistency improves, we'll see a player being recruited by high division one programs. He is only a sophomore so he has another two and a half years to go before playing college basketball.

COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES OF INTEREST: Connecticut, Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Duquesne, Fordham, Stony Brook.

FRANK MANTESTA'S AND MIKE SULLIVAN'S PREVIOUS EVALUATION:

STRENGTHS: Moves well without the basketball. He gives his guards a passing lane by finding the right spots to take his shot. He's quick near the rim too.

AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: Consistency from the perimeter and gaining strength are the two areas Tyler is likely to work on before he graduates from Long Island Lutheran.
