Eron Harris Gaining Steam

It has been an interesting road for Indianapolis shooting guard Eron Harris (Lawrence North HS, IN). I remember just about a year ago, Harris told me about receiving his first offer from Evansville.

He's far from the player he was a year ago. Last time that I checked in with Harris he had offers from Ball State, Evansville and Southern Illionis-Edwardsville.

Now, after his performance with Indiana Elite, he's finally getting the exposure he's worked so hard to gain.

Harris, a 2012 guard, has made a statement this July that he's definitely capable of playing at a high-level. He's scoring more consistently, he's grown a few inches and most importantly, his shot is more consistent than ever.

Just yesterday, Harris added three scholarship offers to his collection.  Buffalo, Dayton and Kent State all offered the talented off-guard.

Harris, who has mostly received looks from mid-majors, has garnered the attention of a high-major coach and is taking a strong look at the program.

Since his run with Indiana Elite, Harris picked up three offers, four if you want to include Tennessee Tech, and impressed coaches from New Mexico, Wisconsin and Xavier.

He's really made a case as to which school he's very interested in hearing more from. Since picking up interest from Wisconsin, Harris has made it clear that he's very interested in the program. He even went as far as saying that it's 'a dream to play in the Big Ten.'

Kyle Anderson to announce September 20th

Kyle Anderson is considered the number one point guard in the class of 2012 by many accounts and for obvious reasons. He has terrific size, a great feel and great game for a lead guard.

At 6-foot-8, most schools have tried hard to hit his recruiting trail and lure him to their respective programs. Earlier this summer, Anderson trimmed his list to five schools, so, you knew his decision would be coming soon.

Anderson announced through Twitter that he has set up an announcement date for September 20th. Florida, Georgetown, Seton Hall, St. Johns and UCLA are the schools still in the mix.
