After much speculation about where he would end up, 6-foot-8 Tobias Harris has announced that he will transfer to Long Island Lutheran from Half Hollow Hills West High School on Long Island.
“Tobias will be attending Lutheran High School next year and feels the move will continue to help his game develop,” his father Torrel said. “It is important to face the best competition and we felt the schedule Half Hollow Hills West plays would simply not challenge Tobias enough to further improve his game.”
Harris also cut his list of potential schools to 10: Louisville, Syracuse, Rutgers, Georgetown, Virginia, Maryland, Marquette, West Virginia, Wake Forest and USC.
Harris just completed a tour of numerous schools, including Virginia, Maryland, Georgetown and Syracuse.
Harris is the No. 21 power forward in the Class of 2010 and has numerous scholarship offers. Rutgers has made him a prime target for the Class of 2010.
A year ago, he scored 52 points in one game and scored his 1,000th career point as a sophomore.
