Kentucky is in the mix for Gary Harris.
“Yes, we have an official set up for Oct. 22,” Harris, the No. 3 shooting guard in the Class of 2012, said by text.
Harris recently had a home visit with Cats coach John Calipari that went well.
“He talked about how he wants me to be a part of the program and what they had to offer and discussed when they could get me on campus,” Harris said.
Harris, out of Fishers (Ind.) Hamilton Southeastern, visited Purdue last weekend and still has visits set for Indiana Oct. 15 for Hoosier Hysteria and Michigan State Nov. 5 for the Minnesota football game.
Kentucky landed a commitment from 6-5 shooting guard Archie Goodwin, but that apparently won’t deter Harris from considering the Wildcats.
“Cal has proven he can play same-position players at the same time successfully,” Harris said by text.
