Buckeye eyes are smiling. You don't have to look far to see those smiles at the ABCD camp. Ohio State recruit Ivan Harris, a scoring wing player from Springfield South High School in Ohio, continues to be one of the more dominating players at the ABCD camp.
Harris, a lefty with skills that allow him to play two different positions along the frontline, is likely to be elevated higher on most scout's ranking lists. Harris possesses a sweet touch from the outside but he is much more than that offensively. He scores his points in the flow of the game. Harris rarely forces the issue offensively and also battles hard inside for rebounds.
Harris knocked in 24 points in a loss yesterday afternoon but he was the best player on the court. He hit shots from all angles and worked hard on both ends of the court. The Buckeyes assistant coaches watched his every move. Score another victory for the evaluation process by the Ohio State program in landing such a talent.
Harris has beat up some solid competition and showcased some top skills inside and outside. Harris, a terrific small forward in the class of 2003, also considered Michigan State in his recruiting process.
Harris visited both schools. Harris, who averaged 20 points and nine rebounds last year, and goes about 6-7 and 200 pounds.
