Reports: Class of 2019 Four-Star Guard Anthony Harris Will Take IU Official Visit

Indiana will have two class of 2019 four-star guards on campus over the course of just a few days.

As previously reported, 2019 four-star shooting guard Lester Quinones is planning to take an official visit to IU April 24-26.

Before he arrives, class of 2019 four-star guard Anthony Harris will be in Bloomington.

Based on reports by recruiting services Rivals and 247Sports, Harris will be taking an official visit at Indiana this weekend.  He will then take an official visit to North Carolina on Monday.

Prior to committing to Virginia Tech, Harris had taken official visits to Duke, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech.  2019 Recruits are only allowed a total of five official visits, meaning that the IU and North Carolina visits should be the final two for Harris.

Harris could still take unofficial visits to schools closer to his hometown of Fairfax, Virginia.  Unofficial visit expenses are paid by the recruit, but nearby schools such as Maryland and Georgetown would be relatively easy trips for Harris.  Both schools are reportedly still involved.

Ranked as the No. 65 player in the country in the 2019 class by the 247Sports Composite, Harris committed to Virginia Tech in October.  When former Hokie head coach Buzz Williams left for Texas A&M, Harris asked for and received a release from his national letter of intent.

Last weekend, Indiana head coach Archie Miller and several other coaches visited Harris in his home state of Virginia.

The 6-foot-3 Harris played for Team Takeover during the 2018 AAU season on the Nike EYBL Circuit.  That is the same program that produced Victor Oladipo.  Team Takeover went undefeated during the regular season portion of the EYBL and then won the Peach Jam Tournament.

Harris is regarded as a strong defensive player and a team leader.  Generally described as a “combo guard”, he can score inside and out, with a perimeter shot that is improving.  He shot three-pointers at better than 50% during 2018 AAU play.

Harris tore his ACL in early December during his senior year of high school at Paul VI but is expected to make a full recovery prior to the start of the 2019-20 college basketball season.

We will have a complete official visit primer including videos and more later in the week.
