Harris, who played his high school ball for Hillcrest Prep in Arizona, is originally from Michigan and committed to the Dukes back in Dec. of 2019. In high school, Harris was an unranked recruit, but held offers from TCU, Georgetown, Washington State, New Mexico, Montana, Grand Valley State, Duquesne, and others.
With the additions from the transfer portal and the 2021 recruiting class, Duquesne’s roster will have a much different look than this past season, in which the Dukes went 9-9 and 7-7 in conference.
Pittsburgh Sports Now is led to believe that this will be the last departure this season and the Dukes 2021-22 roster is set.
