Paul and Harris were club basketball teammates on Full Package.
Harris, a 6-4 shooting guard, was also recruited by Detroit and Oregon State, among others. He committed to Western Michigan on Sunday.
“They are very close,” Full Package coach Billy Welcome said. “They’ve known each other for a long time and are friends. I don’t think they said, ‘We are going to commit to the same college.’ It’s huge for Western Michigan. To get them both is incredible.”
“He’s an immensely skilled 6-9 guy,” Welcome said. “I think his skills are off the charts at 6-9 as far as passing, shooting and ball handling. He has incredible hands.”
Harris averaged 15 points and seven rebounds for Lake Forest Academy last season.
“He’s just an incredible athlete,” Welcome said. “He has high-major ability. He’s a lockdown defender.”
