Keith Dambrot and the Duquesne basketball program officially have a signature from the last member of their 2020 recruiting class.
Three-star forward Andre Harris (6-foot-8, 230 pounds) from Hillcrest Prep in Mesa, Arizona officially signed his National Letter of Intent on Tuesday to play for the Dukes. When he gave a verbal commitment to Duquesne back in December, Harris selected the Dukes over Georgetown, Montana, New Mexico, TCU and Washington State.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
The addition of Harris gives Dambrot a big body in the paint that will help the Dukes with the graduation of starting center Mike Hughes and forward Marcus Weathers after the 2020-21 season. Harris is a skilled, big body player in the paint, especially with his ability to pass the ball.
Harris is originally from Detroit, Michigan and is first cousins with former Michigan State great and NBA All-Star Jason Richardson.
The news gives Duquesne three three-star players in their Class of 2020 (guard Tyson Acuff and wing Toby Okani) along with First Love Christian Academy guard Jett Roesing, small forward Chad Baker and shooting guard Mike Bekelja.
The six person recruiting class now leaves Duquesne two players over the 13 player scholarship limit, so there will be some additional roster news between now and the start of the season.
