Harrison Has Offers From Three
“I have to be in the post and I’m around big guys, and then when I’m on the perimeter I get the guards on me too - so you can’t back down. Even if they are bigger than you you have to be smart and you have to find ways around it.”
The 6-foot-7 Harrison said he didn’t pick up any new offers after Vegas, so his total stays at three - Washington, UNLV and New Mexico. The feelings between Harrison and the UW staff are mutual, as he recently came to Seattle with his Mom to check out the Huskies’ camp.
“They showed a lot of interest,” Harrison said when asked why he decided to camp at Montlake. “In July they came to see some of my games. Coach (Lorenzo) Romar was at every one. They’ve been showing a lot of love and they’ve been showing love. We like Washington and we liked how (the camp) sounded, so we decided to make the trip.”
Harrison added that he won’t be making his final college decision on his own. “It’s a family decision with everything we do,” he said, matter-of-factly. “I came up with my Mom. My Dad had to work.”
According to Harrison, Washington is now Mom-approved. “She loved it,” he said. “We have family up there also that she grew up with. We got to stay with them and she got to reconnect with the family that way. It was awesome.”
Harrison said that, before the Seattle visit, he had never been to the Northwest, let alone the Emerald City. “It’s a beautiful state,” he said. “The weather was nice. It was pretty hot up there, then it started raining so we got to see what it’s like when it rains, because that’s what it’s going to look like most of the time.”
Harrison added that with school starting up September 3rd, he has no other unofficial visits set up any time soon. He doesn’t have a favorite school at this point, so his focus is squarely back on his upcoming junior season. “Just getting ready for the season and focusing on a tough academic year. Getting ready for that, I need to do well in that.
“I think I’m narrowing down my list, and after next summer, the next AAU season.”
