Coach Walker on Harris:
“We were fortunate to find Jamal when we did. He
is a special player in that he does a lot of things. He really guards
well for his height. Jamal has such a long wing span, it gives him a
great advantage to guard taller players, or to make up for a mistake by
someone or himself. He is an athletic player and uses that gift on both
ends of the floor. Jamal is pretty crafty around the basket, also. He
can score a little bit, and could have the ability to make a lot of
hustle plays. We will ask him to play an inside spot for us, but will
make sure we’re able to get him the ball where he can do something
positive with it.”
