Tyler Harris picks up scholarship offer from Pitino

St. Benedict's Prep (NY) forward Tyler Harris has picked up a scholarship offer from Louisville, according to Adam Zagoria.

The versatile 6-8 (LEFT-HANDED!) Harris is also considering Iowa, N.C. State, St. John's and Providence. He'll visit Iowa this weekend, N.C State on Oct. 1 and Providence two weeks after that.

According to Zagoria, his visit date to Louisville is not set in stone.

He will also visit Louisville and St. John’s, probably on Oct 22 and Nov. 5, but those dates could be flipped.

"Those dates may be flipped," Torrel said. "St. John’s is right here. I can visit St. John’s anytime."

Harris, a senior from Long Island who plays at St. Benedict’s Prep, has become a Louisville target, along with Westchester (N.C.) Country Day forward Quincy Miller and Seattle Garfield guard Tony Wroten, with whom Pitino had an in-home earlier this week.

"It’s Quincy Miller, Tyler and they’re looking at Tony Wroten," Torrel said.

Louisville is also pursuing 6-7 small forward Rodney Hood of Meridian, Miss., who will take an official.

Harris is currently No. 75 in the ESPNU Top 100 for the class of 2011.


If he picks Louisville his first order of business should be reaching out to Jared Swopshire for a 2011 Halloween costume collaboration, because those two are going to be confused on campus many, many times.

After the Bryce Cotton fiasco, the thought of losing another recruit (oh, we lost him) to Keno Davis makes me physically ill. Let's go ahead and back up, Providence.
