The three-star point guard out of Raleigh, North Carolina was originally committed to Washington. But when Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar was fired in March, Harris followed his fellow Washington commit, Michael Porter Jr. to Missouri. He was a consensus top 150 recruit, but reportedly has not determined where he will attend school next.
