Harris Deserves National Attention

Josiah Harris 6'6" WF 2022 Cleveland
We have been watching Josiah Harris(6’6”/WF/2022/Cleveland) play for several years now, all while his basketball stock has seemed to ebb and flow frequently.  However, from what we saw at the Midwest Regional Combine in Chicago 2 weeks ago, Harris’ stock is clearly on the rise.  He has always been one of the best players in a talent-rich Ohio, but he kind of disappeared from the 2022 state-wide radar after taking his talents to an Indiana-based program earlier this season.  We have seen many of the top players in the country in the class of 2022, and we firmly believe Harris’ name needs to start appearing on some national lists.

In Chicago, Harris was the best player in the gym!  He impacted games on multiple levels, including, scoring, rebounding and defending; and despite his size, Harris excelled on the perimeter, made plays for teammates, knocked down treys, protected the rim and used several advanced low post moves to score around the basket. He was also aggressive both offensively and defensively, rebounded out of his area, and even dove on the floor for loose balls. 

Our experience tells us that if Harris continues to grow, develop and plays as hard as he did at the combine, the sky is the limit for this kid!  In addition, as an incoming freshman next year, varsity basketball is almost a given, as is D-I college basketball in a few year!  College coaches might want to add Harris' name to their recruiting boards early!
