Chris Harris Jr. is establishing himself as one of the best perimeter scorers in the class of 2019. The South Garland (TX) guard has been very impressive on the Nike EYBL circuit and is hungry for more.
On an RM5 team loaded with nationally ranked superstars, sophomore guard Chris Harris Jr. is standing out this Spring. The 6’4 sharpshooter is averaging better than 11 points per game during EYBL play while playing up a year in the 17u division.
“Things are going really good, we added some key pieces to our team these last couple weeks. As far as my self, I’m playing my role on the team. Scoring , defending and creating plays for my team when they need me too and not forcing anything.”
Chris is a strong guard with range out to 25 feet, a quick release and consistent mechanics. His ability to shoot off the dribble and create for teammates is what makes him a terrific prospect as a combo-guard.
“My competitiveness and my shooting are the biggest strengths of my game,” said Harris.
High major programs have taken notice of those attributes, as Chris reports offers from UNLV, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Tulsa and SMU.
In addition to those 5 offers, Oklahoma, Texas, TCU, Texas A&M, Memphis, Kansas State, Houston, DePaul and others are showing interest Harris tells Endless Motor Sports.
Chris is taking things slow with his recruitment, and has no visits set up at the moment. For now, he’s focused on taking his game to the next level and being among the best prospects in the country.
“This summer I’m looking to improve my game, make the Pangos All American and Nike 100 camps and just to get my name out there a little more.”
Harris is one of the more under-appreciated guards in the country for the 2019 class. His combination of size, shooting, strength and ballhandling make him one of the most versatile sophomore guards in the country.
