After his stellar play with the Albany City Rocks AAU program at the Nike Peach Jam, Tobias Harris has picked up half a dozen more offers.
The 6-8, 225-pound Harris, out of Dix Hills (NY) Half Hollows West, received offers from Wake Forest, Florida State, Texas, Louisville, Miami and Syracuse.
“Tobias doesn’t have a leader in his recruiting process,” his father, Torrel, said. But Torrel has previously mentioned that Rutgers was the first to offer and that he likes what the staff there is doing.
“Rutgers was one of the first schools that started recruiting Tobias when he was young,” Torrel said
“They’re guys that have a vision about where they want to take their program, and they believe they’re going to take it there. And from the things that they’re showing so far regarding their program, they look like they’re on their way.”
Despite playing on sprained ankle suffered at the Reebok All-American Camp, Harris led his team in scoring (22 ppg), rebounding (10) and blocks shots (2), including the championship game.
He heads this week to Orlando for the AAU Nationals and Super Showcase.
