Despite their first loss of the season, Keith Dambrot’s team received some good news off the court as they landed a commitment from a player they’ve been recruiting for a while.
2020 forward Andre Harris (6’8″, 230) from Hillcrest Prep in Mesa, Arizona gave his commitment Sunday night. Harris eventually selected Duquesne over his other six finalists- TCU, Georgetown, Washington State, New Mexico, Montana and Grand Valley State.
Harris, who’s originally from Michigan, was recruited to Duquesne by assistant coach Charles Thomas, who originally offered him back in May of 2018.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
This is a big get for Duquesne because Harris is a talented wide body, who has really good skills, especially his ability in the paint and passing the basketball. Harris comes from good basketball genes as he’s first cousins with former Michigan State great and NBA All-Star Jason Richardson.
Harris becomes Duquesne’s third commitment for their Class of 2020 joining Michigan 3-star guard Tyson Acuff and First Love sharp shooter Jett Roesing.
