Dion Harris, a 6-4 swingman from Redford High School in Detroit, Michigan, said he only seriously considered two schools -- Louisville and Michigan. The Wolverine (michigan.rivals.com) reported the story first on its site about Harris' commitment to Michigan.
"I basically chose Michigan because it was close to home and my friends and family could watch me play," Harris said. "When you add in the players that are coming in this year and next year Michigan is starting to have a chance to win a lot of games."
Harris told us that he believes the Wolverines are turning the corner in making a bid back to its glory days. "We are going to have a great backcourt," Harris said. "Daniel Horton is a great player. I think I can help too in scoring some points. And that's what they struggled in last year -- scoring points."
Harris told us he plans on playing at the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions event in May. "I want to work on several things this spring and summer," Harris said. "I want to work and become a better ballhandler. I also want to get stronger. You have to be strong to play in the Big Ten."
