Saw he posted some pictures of him in a San Jac uniform, went over to their site, and, sure enough, he’s playing for them this year. Taking it as a good sign that he’s playing for them and will hopefully transfer in next year.
If CKS can get this kid into UH and play, it would be nice. He can come in and battle for the backup role at Center with big Val.
Braeon Brady will probably start at Center next season. Kid is having a nice season this year for Saddleback. Averaging around 17pts, 8 rbs and shooting around 68 percent from the field. Also, a solid free throw shooter. If you dig deep enough on YouTube you can find actual games from his freshman year at Saddleback. Best post up scoring threat since TT.
Regardless, UH needs to bring in another Center and a scoring PG to help Galen Robinson with the ball handling duties next season. UH has 2 ships to give out in the Spring. Go Coogs!!!
On another note, all 4 of UH basketball Fall signings are having stellar seasons, but Fabian White is the real steal of the class. A 6’8 PF who is going to contribute as a freshman. Very high bb IQ and motor.
This class we have coming in is probably the best since we brought in Chicken and House.
Harris is a force on defense and rebounding. He’s 7th on the Junior College circuit in blocks and 31st in offensive rebounds…as a backup. He’s actually increased his FG% - 66.1% while somehow lowering his FT% - 4 for 17. If he comes in with the other 4, this will be an incredible class to add to Robinson, Gray, Brooks, and Davis. We can all dream…right?
You’re right though, we need a solid PG to backup Robinson. It’s really too bad we still don’t have LJ Rose; he’s done a nice job for BYU as a facilitator (although he still can’t shoot). Interestingly, Ronnie Johnson isn’t have as much success at Auburn and is basically the 3rd or 4th guy off the bench there. He would have probably been the 1st guard off the bench here.
I’m counting on Rob Gray returning of course and not turning pro. He is not your typical 2 year Juco transfer. He was a one year juco transfer. When I say pro, I mean over seas of course. We’ve seen lesser players leave early to pursue their basketball careers overseas.
“We all like each other; there’s no personal issues on the team,” said Harris, who signed with UH out of high school and intends to play for the Cougars next season. “We play together, we buy into coach’s system, listen to what Coach says.”
