Versatile perimeter player Paul Harris, 6-foot-4, 220-pounds has Niagara Falls (N.Y.) High School flying high with an 8-0 record and a City of Palms Championship. The No. 15 ranked player in the class of 2006 does whatever it takes to win, and a new school is calling on Harris.
"Paul's mail reads like a who's who of colleges, but Syracuse and Pittsburgh are still the two main players in his recruitment," said Niagara Falls assistant coach Sal Constantino. "Virginia watched one of his games and loved him, so they are on him now."
Averaging 16 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists, Harris is playing more of the point guard position for Niagara Falls as he did for his AAU team the GC Ballers at the end of the AAU season.
"Paul is a Mr. Triple Double for us," said Constantino. "He does everything we need done to win. Of all the great players out there, he has to be the most unselfish one of them.
"He is playing a lot of point guard for us and doing a great job. He is just so big and handles the ball well enough. He is not blazing fast with the ball, but he can get where he needs to be with it."
