DC Premier forward Jermaine Harris seems to be ready for this upcoming summer. The Class of 2018 prospect spoke about his overall game, what he wants to develop to become a better player, an overall break down of his current recruitment status, and schools that he wants to visit in June.  


Standing at 6-foot-9, Harris is noted for his versatility as he can score inside as well as the perimeter.


“I’m versatile so I can score using post moves and I can shoot the mid range and I can shoot the three a little bit.”


As the goal is to get better everyday, Harris is working on all parts of his game.


“I’m working on post work really and my mid range too. At first, I was a big and that’s all I really played but as the years grew my coach made me focus on my outside game.”


In Harris’ recruitment, he stated four schools that are making him a priority and quickly broke each program down.


“I feel like Georgia, West Virginia, Georgetown, and South Carolina are coming at me pretty hard.”


Starting with the Gamecocks, they have been recruiting Harris for a long time.


“They’ve been watching me ever since I was in the 10th grade so it’s been a great relationship and they’ve actually been sending me the most stuff out of all the schools so it’s been great.”


The Bulldogs seem to be a new program that just got into the mix with Harris.


“The Bulldogs, I just met them but I feel like they are going to come after me hard.”


Harris spoke about West Virginia and how his visit went.


“I met coach Bob Huggins on my visit and the visit went great because it felt like a family, they had great vibes, and the campus was lovely.”


As they Hoyas have a new coach, he touched on their program.


“They have a new coach coming in and their old coach recruited me but (Patrick) Ewing gave me a offer and I think our relationship will grow.”


As the month of June is almost here, the DC Premier product plans to visit some schools.


“I plan on visiting Miami, Georgia, South Carolina, and I want to visit West Virginia again.”
