Blake Harris was all set to attend University of Washington this fall before a coaching change made him rethink his decision. After notifying them that he wanted out of his LOI, U of W released Harris yesterday.
This opened the door for Kevin Keatts to make his pitch. The 4-star point guard was a star at Raleigh’s Word of God Academy last season. Harris is a smooth guard with great scoring ability. However, while Harris did lead his high school team in scoring, he’s actually more known for his vision. His ability to control the defense with his eyes and deliver passes using his peripheral vision is something you don’t normally see from a high-scoring high school point guard.

Harris is ranked #99 overall on ESPN’s player rater and is the #20 PG in his class. This would be a very nice pick-up this late in the game for Keatts.
Note that LaVar Batts, a Charlotte kid who was committed to VCU, is also looking around and could be an option for Keatts. We’ll keep you posted.
