Southern Cal has become the latest major program to offer a scholarship to Dix Hills (N.Y.) Half Hollow Hills West junior Tobias Harris.
USC coach Tim Floyd called the 6-foot-8 Harris Monday night to offer him.
“He told Tobias that he watched many of his AAU games this summer and that he loves the way he plays,” said Torrel Harris, Tobias’ dad. “Coach Floyd said that in the Pac 10, Tobias would be a match-up nightmare. He offered Tobias a scholarship to USC and said that he will be following his progress in high school.
“Tobias was very excited about the offer from USC. He knows the great tradition of the school and Coach Floyd’s reputation as a coach for getting his players prepared for the next level.”
Harris is the No. 21 power forward in the Class of 2010 — although he hopes to play the three at the next level — and has numerous scholarship offers. Rutgers has made him a prime target.
A year ago, he scored 52 points in one game and scored his 1,000th career point as a sophomore.
He is considering transferring high schools, either to South Kent (Conn.) or Long Island Lutheran.
