Just from that video, he looks like a young Dwayne Wade. Not saying he will be near the talent Wade is, but Harris has a similar style game...

Sam Webb: Recruiting
MSU-Michigan battle heats up for Grand Rapids star Drake Harris


The hype that preceded Grand Rapids Christian star Drake Harris' entry into high school last year resonated throughout Michigan. The moment the 6-4, 170-pound combo guard hit the floor, he was met by heightened expectations. But instead of wilting in the face of such pressure, he emerged as arguably the top basketball prospect in the state's 2014 class. At the conclusion of that successful freshman campaign, Harris was faced with another stiff test, this time on the AAU circuit. He passed that one with flying colors, as well.

"He had a fairly big reputation for being one of the best players in the 2014 class coming into the (Adidas May Classic in Bloomington, Ind.), and Harris did nothing to hurt his stock with his play," said Scout.com basketball recruiting analyst Brian Snow.

Snow says Harris is an excellent athlete, finishes well above the rim, and also has the ability to knock down shots from deep.

"He showed off a good feel for how to pass and was instrumental in leading his team to the 15U title," Snow said. "He has the ball on a string and possesses nice court vision. While he can pass, the best thing Harris does is score. His release is a little bit funky, but the shot tends to go in, and he knows how to create space for himself with the dribble. Continuing to rep the jumper will be key, but the talent is through the roof with Harris."

Drake Harris 'phenomenal' in leading Grand Rapids Christian boys past South Christian

Jane Bos | The Grand Rapids Press, December 09, 2011 10:29 p.m.


GRAND RAPIDS -- Drake Harris jumped, and while suspended mid-air, he carefully switched the ball from one hand to the other before softly laying it through the net.

Then, 19 seconds later, the Grand Rapids Christian sophomore guard rose way above the rim and used both hands to slam the ball down.

The two decisive baskets gave the Eagles their first leads of the game, 9-6, against host South Christian, with less than 2 minutes remaining in the first quarter. While the Sailors never gave up, they could never catch up, and Grand Rapids Christian posted a 57-41 non-league victory Friday night.

So this is the player I’ve heard about for the past five years. As a seventh-grader, folks were already whispering how special he was going to be. Watch out for him, I was told. A year ago as a freshman on the varsity, he helped the Eagles go 19-1 in the regular season. This year, he has grown an inch (6-foot-4) and is that much better.

"Drake Harris is phenomenal," South Christian coach Ken Hiskes said. "He will get to where he wants to go. He was pretty good last year, but this year? It’s so effortless. He has the combination of quickness, agility and skills, too. We matched him up with our tallest guy to make him be a jump shooter, and he still managed to get around us."

Harris led the winners with 18 points and five rebounds, but clearly there is a bench full of talent next to him. Friday, teammate Jordan Daley scored 12 points while Justin Crow came off the bench to add 11.

Two-sport standout Drake Harris still torn..............Michigan assistant Bacari Alexander and coaches from Indiana were on hand in the early morning hours Saturday to watch class of 2014 shooting guard Drake Harris and his Meanstreets squad in action. Harris, a two-sport standout out of Grand Rapids (Mich.) Christian, has offers for both football and basketball and has slowed his recruitment in recent months.

Grand Rapids Christian's Drake Harris weighs basketball, football options

Basketball, football, or both?

That's the question that Grand Rapids Christian sophomore star Drake Harris has been peppered with since his impressive debut on the varsity gridiron last season. The 6-3, 175-pound wideout hauled in 57 passes for 1,118 yards and 14 touchdowns en route to earning first-team all-state recognition.

Before that he was projected as the next in a long line of outstanding basketball prospects to come from Great Lake State. His 19 points, five rebounds, three assists, and three steals per game further substantiated his promise on the hardwood, but it also made the window into his future less clear.

"Drake has a very high ceiling in football," said Allen Trieu, Scout.com midwest regional football recruiting manager. "He has the height and the frame to go along great athleticism and ball skills. Plus, when I saw him in person he was faster than I expected him to be. He's certainly a high level BCS prospect. His athleticism serves him well in both sports, but if you look at it from the perspective of supply and demand, there are more 6-3 guards out there than 6-3 wide receivers who can jump out of the gym.

"From what the basketball guys tell me and what his offer list says, he's a major prospect in both sports, but I would say he's more of a rare prospect on the football side."
