Despite an Internet report saying Tobias Harris had narrowed his list to three schools, Torrel Harris says his son still has a list of about a dozen schools.
“Tobias’ list is open ONLY to his top schools,” Torrel wrote in an email. “My son likes the following schools: Tenn, UCONN, West Virginia, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Rutgers, St.John’s, Virginia, Kentucky, Louisville and West Virginia.”
The 6-foot-8 Harris was the sixth-leading scorer (13.3 ppg) at the NBA Top 100 Camp in Charlottesville, Va., and plans to cut his list later this summer.
“At the end of the summer we will cut the list to five schools and by the end of September we will have a college decision,” Torrel said.
“When we pick our five, everybody’s going to know.”
