Three-star 2009 guard C.J. Harris caught the eye of coaches and scouts with his play this summer for the CP3 All-Stars. His strong play has carried over into the high school season for Winston-Salem (N.C.) Mount Tabor, and his recruitment is beginning to heat up.
Coming off an MVP performance at the Frank Spencer Classic, Harris is averaging 19.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists and an impressive 6 steals per game. Versatility and length are hallmarks of his game.
"C.J. has a 6-foot-6 wing span and causes a lot of trouble on the top of our zone," said Mount Tabor head coach Andy Muse about his 6-foot-2, 175-pound guard. "He has a knack at getting his hands on the basketball. He is a true combo guard in the best sense. If I need a point guard, he's a point. If I need a shooting guard, he can score for us. He's been making a couple threes per game, but the best thing he does is get to the rack."
With offers from Charlotte, George Mason and Winthrop in hand, Williams is also receiving heavy interest from a number of schools. According to Coach Muse Michigan has been in three times to watch him and calling regularly. Local school Wake Forest has seen him in action four times this year. Coach Haith from Miami has called and is expected to watch Harris next week. And Virginia and Virginia Tech are tracking him as well.
