THE LIST: Class of 2014 Rivals150
While much of America was sleeping on Monday night, the coaching staffs at Texas A&M and Gonzaga were making things happen on the recruiting trail. Both the Aggies and the Zags scored late night commitments.
Starting in SEC Country, Billy Kennedy and the Aggies were smitten with junior big man Chris Harris of Houston (Texas) Madison. While the 6-foot-10 three-star is still a bit under the radar nationally, A&M made him a major priority.
Toward the end of the summer, Harris started generating a big following because of the high level run and jump athleticism he showed while playing with the Houston Superstars. That buzz continued into the fall and there were lots of rumblings out of Houston that Harris was turning himself into a big time rebounder and shot blocker that big programs would flock to during the winter and spring.
Rather than wait and see what happened, the Aggies got him locked up. By all indications from those who have seen him recently, Harris has the tools to easily develop into a Rivals150 prospect.
While Harris was popping for Texas A&M, Gonzaga was landing a commitment from scorer Bryan Alberts.
A 6-foot-4 shooting guard with a strong frame, the product of Sun Valley (Calif.) Village Christian is a wing scorer who has enough skill to help out for pinches at the point guard.
Alberts joins a perimeter heavy recruiting class and is a solid compliment to the Bulldogs two Rivals150 commitments, shooting guard Silas Melson and point guard Josh Perkins.
