Harry Douglas, a 6-0, 180 pound combo/point guard from Jonesboro (GA) High School, recently dropped baseball from his interscholastic sechedule. "That's really was his best sport," his father, Harry Douglas of Youthprepstar.com, said. "He wants to concentrate on basketball and football." He's a wide receiver on the gridiron.
Douglas is a good student with a 3.5 GPA and took the SAT this month for the first time. He plans to major in pre-law.
The younger Douglas was an invitee to the NBA Players Association High School Camp last week in Richmond, VA. According to his dad, he will make a decision on the school and sport based on the best situation. Douglas is looking to choose a school in September/October in time for the basketball early signing period.
In basketball, he's being recruited by Clemson, Rutgers, Marshall, Furman, Central Florida, Southern Alabama, Georgia State, Buffalo and the College of Charlestown. He's taken unofficial visits to Clemson, Furman, Georgia State and Georgia Southern.
In football, the elder Douglas said the front runner is Ohio State. Other schools involved include Clemson, Maryland, Virginia, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Miami, Florida State, North Carolina and UAB. He's visited Alabama, Auburn, North Carolina and UAB and was scheduled to visit Clemson this week.
Douglas will be attending the AAU 17 & under Showcase and Nationals in Florida and the Kentucky HoopFest in Louisville.
Harry is the older brother of rising junior combo/shooting point guard Toney Douglas.
