Harris' Transferring Back to Half Hollows; NIA's Raymond, Berry Commit
Tobias and Tyler Harris will likely transfer back to Half Hollow Hills West on Long Island from Long Island Lutheran.
“It’s 99.99 percent that Tobias and Tyler Harris will be transferring back to Half Hollow Hills West after the school year,” said Torrel Harris, the boys’ father.
Under New York State rules, you are allowed a one-time exemption back to your home district, meaning the boys could suit up immediately if they returned to Half Hollow Hills.
“I can’t comment on kids who aren’t enrolled in our school,” Half Hollow Hills coach Bill Mitaritonna said. Apparently there was an incident between Torrel and LuHi coach Brian Carey over the weekend in Glens Falls, N.Y.
Tobias Harris scored 27 points and added 15 rebounds to earn MVP honors as LuHi routed Jamesville-DeWitt 68-51 in the Class A final Saturday at the New York State Boys Basketball Federation Tournament of Champions.
Harris is the No. 9 power forward in the Class of 2010 and has numerous scholarship offers.
