Three-star 2007 prospect Corperrayle Harris came into the high school season not nearly as highly regarded as his AAU teammates on The Family Kalin Lucas and Durrell Summers. After a stellar high school season, Harris, a 6-foot-4, 170-pound shooting guard from Redford High School in Detroit, Mich., now has everyone's full attention.
As Harris led his Redford team to the city championship and the finals of the state tournament, several coaching staffs had an opportunity to play. One coach with The Family noted that it didn't matter which coach watched him, but that every coach wanted him after he watched him play.
What is appealing about Harris is his relentless competitiveness, strong work ethic and solid all around game. Durand "Speedy" Walker, head coach of The Family noted the striking difference of Harris' career compared to Ramar Smith's career.
"Harris' career has been the exact opposite of Ramar's," said Walker. "Harris came in as a nobody. He was as weak as could be. But he has done nothing but get better and has created a situation where he has just a phenomenal upside."
Walker noted that Harris' recruitment is just starting to take off and take off so fast that it is hard to keep up with all the interested schools. He did note that Michigan, Michigan State, George Washington, Tennessee and Wisconsin have been in to see Harris. Wisconsin and Tennessee are especially pursuing him hard at this point.
Walker finished with this comment on Harris' game.
"He is a super clutch player," he said. "He can get to the basket and finishes well."
