Gary Harris to Michigan State

Hamilton SE senior Gary Harris, the top basketball player in the state and the No. 1 shooting guard in the country, has committed to Michigan State. As ESPN Recruiting analyst Dave Telep says in his story, Harris chose the Spartans over Kentucky, Purdue and Indiana in large part because of coach Tom Izzo. From Telep's story:

Harris said coach Tom Izzo was one of the main reasons he chose Michigan State.

"He comes at me like a father figure," Harris said. "The respect that he has from everyone, his players, the people outside the program; he's a great guy and a guy that you would want to be around."

Harris was an ESPNHS first team All-State selection for basketball and football this year.
