Harris is originally from Edwardsville, Ill. but currently plays basketball at Fishburne Military Academy in Virginia. Harris was lightly recruited out of high school and doesn’t even have a profile on Rivals. He chose to attend prep school in order to improve his body and earn more scholarship offers. The plan paid off, as he received interest from Toledo, Delaware and K-State. After visiting all three schools, he decided K-State was the obvious choice.
“I liked everything about Kansas State,” Harris said by phone Sunday morning while traveling home from Manhattan. “Coach (Bruce) Weber and his coaching staff are some guys who know what they are doing. The school has had success and is coming off the Big 12 championship. It’s a good spot in a good conference in the highest level in the country. That is probably what got me here.”
