Willard had a reputation at Seton Hall of developing three- and four-star level talent and developing them into pros like Myles Powell, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Jared Rhoden. Now he’s looking to follow a similar blueprint at Maryland. “I feel like he definitely did a great job already with me, Jamie and Jahn, we got three of the best players in the DMV and I feel like he’s going to continue doing that, especially the way I feel that me, Jamie and Jahn will have great college careers and people will want to follow in our footsteps.” Harris-Smith said the goal is to help Maryland compete for another NCAA championship. “That’s definitely something I want to do,” he said. “I’ve been a winner my whole high school career so I feel I’m going to take that on to the next level and then just having a chip on our shoulder. We are all hometown kids so we definitely want to see our area win that and there’s no better place to win than the people that believed in you first. “When I get to the next level, I feel I’m going to have fans all throughout the country but it started here, it started in the DMV, so I definitely want to win for them.” Follow Adam Zagoria on Twitter Follow ZAGSBLOGHoops on Instagram And Like ZAGS on Facebook
