St. John's adds D'Angelo Harrison

D'Angelo Harrison -- the 15th-best shooting guard and the 44th-best player overall in the Class of 2011, according to ESPNU -- announced on Thursday that he intends to play for St. John's beginning in the 2011-2012 season.

"I'm going to take it all the way to New York and play for St. John's," Harrison said on ESPNU as he revealed his decision. "I just think it's the best fit for me."

Harrison -- 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds -- hails from Missouri City, Texas, and plays for John Foster Dulles High School. His other finalists were Oklahoma State, Baylor and Marquette, but he ultimately decided to come to the Big Apple.

"Harrison is a scoring machine who can put points on the board in a hurry," reads his ESPNU evaluation. "When all is said and done Harrison is a guy you put on the floor and things happen. ... There will be nights when this guy can carry you to a win with his offensive skills."

Harrison is the third piece of what's shaping up to be a dynamite recruiting class for Steve Lavin. He is the third ESPNU Top 100 player from the Class of 2011 to commit to the Red Storm, along with Jakarr Sampson (No. 23 overall) and Maurice Harkless (No. 60).
