It didn’t take long for several D-I programs to reach out to West Virginia transfer Eron Harris, one of which is the Kentucky Wildcats. Harris averaged more than 17 points a game last season as a sophomore for the Mountaineers. He also added 3.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 31.4 minutes per game.
The Indy Star reported that Michigan, Michigan State, New Mexico, Notre Dame, Ohio State and UCLA have also shown interest. The report did mention Louisville making contact with Harris, but they were taken off the article later in the day.
“It is going to be the place that I can be myself,” Harris told Scout.com’s Brian Snow. “I want to be myself. I want to go out there and play basketball and love playing basketball. I am a competitor first, and I want to play instinctively. That is it. I want my coach to respect me and I will respect him.”\
The 6’3″ guard from Indianapolis was a 3-star recruit in the 2012 class. He was not recruited by too many top programs, at least not like he is now.
