Jamir Harris is an elite student-athlete attending The Patrick School in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Harris is one of the most skilled perimeter players in the country, currently ranked a 4 star and #142 in the class of 2017 per ESPN. The 6’2 combo-guard is one of the best shooters in the country, averaging 13.2 points per game on a ridiculous 41% from 3 for Playaz Basketball Club on the prestigious EYBL Circuit. More than just a shooter, Jamir’s ability to create off the dribble and generate quality looks for himself and teammates is the type of versatility college coaches covet on the recruiting trail.
