Blake Harris will transfer to N.C. State from Missouri, he confirmed to ZAGSBLOG.
He must sit out a year per NCAA rules and will be eligible for the second semester of the 2018-19 season.
“I thought it was the best fit for me and I think I will thrive there,” he said.
A four-star recruit coming out of high school, Harris was averaging 3.8 points and 3.1 assists while playing 13.9 minutes per game at Mizzou.
Harris originally signed with Washington in November of 2016, but then reopened his recruitment amid the firing of former head coach Lorenzo Romar.
Along with Missouri, Harris also held offers from Michigan State, NC State, Rutgers, and UConn, among others.
