“I thought about it, but being 18 years old I knew I wasn’t ready for it,” he said. “I became more mature on and off the court. I just look at things differently and you know, I was ready to make this decision rather than second-guess myself.”

Now he must convince an NBA team that, with a nearly 6-7 wingspan, he plays bigger than he stands.

“I played against bigger guards in the Big Ten all year and all day, I hold my own,” Harris said. “I know this is a different level and I may not be a typical size for an NBA ‘2’ guard, but I’m going to go out there and compete. It might not look good, but I’m going out there and I’ll compete no matter how tall I am.”

Harris was a star wide receiver at his Indianapolis-area high school as well.

“I love his football background, he brings toughness,” Saunders said. “People say he’s too small, but he has really long arms and he plays big. The other thing is he’s only 19. He’s still really young yet.”
