Jordan Harris is a dynamic player for Indianapolis Lighthouse and his recruiting is just starting to get going. With a flurry of D3 schools interested in hosting the 6′ guard, a D2 school has appeared on the hunt for a guard like Harris.
Adrian, Defiance, Franklin, Hanover, Manchester, and Wabash have all shown interest and Harris has visited them all besides Manchester. Central State has appeared on the recruiting scene over the last few weeks and Harris is taking a visit there on January 21st.
Harris is a guard who can play both guard roles well. He can run the offense, set up teammates, and run the plays but he also can score the ball at all three levels. If his offense isn’t working he can easily transition from a scorer to a playmaker and if his team really needs it he can score at will at times. Coaches really like this versatility he provides.
“They like how I play coming off screens. They say I need to work on more mid range since I shoot a lot of threes. They like my leadership and how I am active on my court.”
This summer running with Indiana Legends, Harris was exposed to a much higher talent level. He said he loved the team and had a great time. During the summer there were quite a few things that Harris was working on though to further his overall game.
“I worked on leading the team and my point guard play. Normally I play the two, but when I get to college I’ll normally be a point guard. I worked on my vision and trying to see everybody as well as getting people open.”
This year Harris is looking forward to finishing out the year at Lighthouse on a strong note since it is his senior year.
“I am looking forward to having fun with my team and making it the best I can make it. I want to leave my mark at my school because I love my school.”
With a host of small schools in the hunt to acquire Harris’ talent, he knows that he can choose which on fits him best, but first he is looking toward the end of the season.
“I want to be around a great family of basketball players and be at a great school. I want a school that has what I’m looking for. I want to develop a little bit more but a lot of schools have been saying I would play right away. I want to go somewhere to play and just see how I fit in.”
