NBA Comparison: OJ Mayo

Strengths: Extremely polished, well-rounded player for a college sophomore ... Very active hands. Averaged 1.3 SPG last season ... Extremely versatile offensive player who can shoot and drive effectively, shows some combo skills ... Harris hit the weights during his freshman year and now has a muscular frame for shooting guard, making him hard to stop in the lane ... It also makes him a good rebounder for a guard ... Harris is a good shot creator who can accelerate past defenders and finish at the rim ... Very effective off the catch-and-shoot ... Very good perimeter defender thanks to his lateral quickness, long arms, and instincts. Does a lot of little things on the defensive end ... Excellent transition player who takes the ball to the hoop with force and aggression ... Has a good burst, with explosive foot speed off the dribble ... Great athlete and a very smooth and fluid player on the court ... Deadly three-point shooter who will likely continue to improve as a shooter as he ages ... Shot 41% from distance last season ... Very hard worker...Good attitude. Won't create any negative chemistry issues for his team ... Solid length with a 6'6.5 wingspan, helping to make up for his lack of great height ... Young for his class, Harris does not turn 19 until September, which gives him even more upside ...

Weaknesses: Needs to improve as a ball handler. Often has a loose handle ... At 6'4", is a bit undersized for a shooting guard, his most natural position ... Could improve his efficiency inside the three-point line and become more consistent on mid-range jumpers ... Not a great off-the-ball player, Harris needs to use screens better to get open for shots ... While being a very solid prospect without a sizable basement, his ceiling is not as great as some other prospects ...

Overall: Harris is a well-rounded player who can do numerous things to help his team win on both ends of the court. His game is very advanced for a 19-year-old and if he raises his game to be one of the top players in college basketball next season, he could be right up at the top of this promising draft class...

Notes: Measured Ht w/ shoes: 6’4, Hgt w/o shoes: 6’3, Wgt: 210, W-Span: 6’6.5, Reach: 8’3.5 at 2012 Nike Hoop Summit ... Measured 6'5 (in shoes) 205 lbs, with a 6'7 wingspan at the 2013 Kevin Durant Skills Academy ... Named 2012 Indiana Mr. Basketball ... Named Big Ten Freshman of the Year last season... Was a star wide receiver on his high school football team, Harris shows a hard-nosed mentality when he is on the court ...
