2006 prospect Paul Harris led the GC Ballers to a Silver Division championship at the Kingwood Classic while playing with a broken nose, stitches in his upper lip, and cuts under both eyes. Needless to say, the 6-foot-5, 220-pound combo guard from Niagara Falls (N.Y.) loves to battle. Numerous high majors would love to have his toughness on their team.
Before his championship game, Harris told RivalsHoops.com that his top three schools were Pittsburgh, Providence, and Connecticut.
“Those three schools have been on him for over a year,” said GC Ballers head coach Jeffery Bishop. “He is also hearing from Purdue, Tennessee, Kansas, Georgetown, Syracuse, and Charlotte.”
Blessed with a tremendous physique, Harris has the size and toughness to rebound with the big boys and defend the forward positions. He also has the skill and quickness to be a dangerous perimeter player.
“He has to be a top five type player in the 2006 class,” said Coach Bishop. “He still needs work on his ball handling and left hand, but he gives you so much on the court. He is a true combo guard.”
Harris will play one more season at Niagara Falls and then will prep for a year according to Coach Bishop.
