D'Angelo Harrison tries to cut through as much of the recruiting pitch as he can when visiting schools and attempts to let the coaches know what he's looking for, find out what realistic expectations they have for him and figure out which school will be the best fit.
"I tell them to not BS me and I want to know if I'm going to be able to play and do what I do or if I'm going to be a role player," Harrison said. "A lot of the schools want me to do what I've been doing this summer.
"It's really important to me. I want to be on the court right away. I'm not going to say give me the spot but I want to compete for a spot as a freshman and play at the highest level possible."

The Fort Bend (Texas) Dulles shooting guard said he took official visits to Oklahoma State and Baylor this past weekend and both stops went well.
He's more familiar with the Cowboys so finally getting to Baylor to check it out was crucial as his recruitment continues.
"It was a good experience at both places," Harrison said.
"I didn't really know Baylor so I got to see the facilities, the campus and met some of the players so it was a good visit. Both were really good visits. They're definitely different kinds of coaches. Coach (Travis) Ford is more of an up-tempo guy."
Harrison, a 6-foot-3, 186-pound four-star shooting guard with almost unlimited range, recently had in-home visits with Oklahoma State, Baylor, St. John's and Marquette.
Other than his recent weekend visits, Harrison said he definitely will take a trip to St. John's as well but doesn't have a specific date set.
Alabama, Arizona State, Arkansas, Houston, SMU, UTEP and Virginia have also offered but it looks like Harrison is most comfortable with the four aforementioned programs. Rivals.com rates him as the ninth-best shooting guard and No. 41 overall in the 2011 class.
