Evaluation

Strengths

The 5-foot-4 guard has good skill with her handle and explosion to the basket at an early age. She’s comfortable using either hand to attack off of the bounce or pass it as well. Harris‘ jumper has a nice, soft touch as does her finishes around the rim. Between GPS and her summer circuit experience, Harris is used to playing both with and writing an essay structure against other talented kids which is important for players as they get older.

Areas to Improve

Like most young guards, Harris has a lower release point than she will as she finishes growing due to compensating for her smaller frame. Getting her shot pocket and release higher is a priority going into her freshman season this fall. Also, her physical strength will be something that we keep an eye on though that is more about time and her rate of development than anything else.

The Bottom Line

Harris is a talented young guard with lots of upside. Over the course of the next four years, we expect her to be one of the better guards in the Volunteer State’s class of 2016. That said, her physical maturity will take time so for now her emphasis should be on improving both her shooting form and ball skill.
