Four-star South Garland guard Chris Harris Jr. has de-committed from Texas A&M following the firing of coach Billy Kennedy.
Harris was high school teammates with former OSU target and Kentucky commit Tyrese Maxey. The guard duo helped lead South Garland to a state semifinals appearance in 2018 before losing to Katy Tompkins. He was also named Newcomer of the Year for the DFW area by Inside High School Sports after averaging more than 19 points-per-game as a freshman.
The 6-foot-3 shooting guard signed with the Aggies back on November 14 during the early signing period but was granted a release from his NLI after the firing of Kennedy. His current crystal ball predictions have him headed to Dallas to play at SMU.
Harris took an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State back in September 2017 and has also visited SMU, Baylor and Tulsa. A commitment from the South Garland product would bump OSU’s recruiting class up to No. 18 in the nation according to 247sports.
Harris has not put anything on Twitter regarding his decision to de-commit although he has retweeted several tweets talking about his decision. A top schools list could be on the horizon with a commitment expected soon as well.
According to Corey Evans, a national analyst for Rivals.com, his sources say that Oklahoma State has made Harris an offer.
Other offers include Texas Tech, Arkansas, Georgia Tech and SMU according to Evans.
Something to watch for in his recruitment, he is part of a group of DFW recruits and former DFW area recruits that call themselves the “Baggage Claim Boys,” of which Isaac Likekele is part of as well. Likekele could potentially help recruit Harris to Oklahoma State.
Harris would be a solid add to help round out one of the best recruiting classes in recent memory. He ranks not far below Avery Anderson according to 247sports and would compete for minutes as a freshman. Check out what he brings to the table in this mixtape below. The two things that stand out most are his sweet shooting motion and his length.
Harris also hit one of the craziest buzzer beaters I’ve ever seen while playing with Nike EYBL’s Houston Hoops last summer. Definitely worth the watch. ⬇️
