Sources close to Ivan Harris, a 6-7 scoring wing player from Springfield South High School in Ohio, tell us he is currently visiting Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Virginia. Harris has not officially made a decision to transfer from Springfield South but is taking a tour of the Oak Hill campus.
Harris is likely to make a decision soon regarding his possible transfer. Despite published reports stating he has already left, Harris has not yet finalized his decision, according to sources close to the Harris family.
Back on June 10th, RivalsHoops.com reported that Harris was thinking about transferring to another school in preparation for his senior season.
If you have forgotten, Harris, a terrific small forward in the class of 2003, is already committed to the Ohio State basketball program. Harris made that decision after he watched a basketball game between Ohio State and Nebraska.
Harris also considered Michigan State. Harris visited both schools. But Harris chose the Buckeyes based on his feelings for the coaches and current players there. Harris knows Matt Sylvester and Brandon Fuss-Cheatham. Harris, who averaged 20 points and nine rebounds last year, is skilled and can shoot the three.
Harris, a 6-7, 200-pound natural lefty, has nice range on his jumper.
We will keep you posted on whether he officially decides to enroll at Oak Hill during his visit there today.
