It’s too early to tell what type of impact shooting guard Eron Harris will have on any program he joins, but one thing is for sure — he can score in bunches. The sophomore shooting guard who played for West Virginia last season announced he’s going to transfer and Michigan State is one of his final three options.
The shooting guard is considered one of the best on the market in college basketball — sounds weird that transfers are hot commodities these days — but will have to sit out the entire 2014-15 season because of NCAA transfer rules.
Unfortunately, Eron Harris won’t be able to fill the hole that Michigan State’s Gary Harris left when he declared for the NBA draft this offseason.
The Spartans are hoping to grab another transfer this offseason, but as for a future fit, Tom Izzo believes that Harris will be perfect for the Spartans. Michigan State will be opening five roster spots after this season and Harris could join a very talented 2015 recruiting class and make the Spartans serious national title contenders.
Harris averaged 17.2 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 42.2 percent from three-point range as a sophomore with the Mountaineers.
If Michigan State can add him, like they should, they could potentially have a very scary team in 2015. The recruiting class could add guys like Montaque Gill-Caesar, Caleb Swanigan and Deyonta Davis — among others — and Harris could be the veteran of the group.
