South Carolina transfer Harris begins KU visit
Damontre Harris, a sophomore transfer from South Carolina, began a campus visit at KU on Thursday. Harris, 6-foot-9 forward, will likely choose between Florida and Kansas, according to Rivals.com. Harris, who visited Florida earlier this week, averaged 6.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in 25.9 minutes per game as a sophomore. He also recorded 2.3 blocks per game.
But Harris apparently decided to look for a fresh start after the firing of coach Darrin Horn — and the eventual hiring of former K-State coach Frank Martin. A native of Fayetteville, N.C., Harris was a consensus top-75 recruit coming out of high school, according to multiple recruiting services.
Harris would be required to sit out the 2012-13 season before being eligible as a junior in 2013-14.
