Re: '18 MD PG - Amir Harris

Too bad. I would've loved to see how Amir could develop, especially liked his potential on defense. Will be interesting to track his career wherever he ends up. I'd definitely be open to taking a flyer on a late-bloomer, or waiting to pick up a solid transfer. Full faith in the staff to find a silve...

My guess is that he'd be a consideration if plans A, B, C, and D fell through and the choice was literally Open Scholarship or Hughes. In that case, sure, bring on board another talented guard. Would have to imagine that any and all front court players are ahead of him in the priority list though.

I disagree on immediately saying "pass" on the guy because he's 6'6". In reality, that's how tall Hassan is. If he's got long arms, he'll play up. I'd be very okay with this guy, coming in eligible immediately. Juiston is obviously Plan A, but to me this seems like a very solid Plan B.
