Rhode Island pulled in a top-100 recruit in the Class of 2018 on Friday as four-star forward Jermaine Harris committed to the Rams in a video on Periscope.
The 6-foot-8 Harris is another impressive commitment from Rhode Island and head coach Dan Hurley as he lands yet another high-major prospect to play for him in the Atlantic 10. Regarded as the No. 76 overall prospect in the Rivals’ Class of 2018 national rankings, Harris was one of the more productive frontcourt players in the Under Armour Association this spring and summer as he averaged 13.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per game for D.C. Premier.
Hurley has done a great job of bringing frontcourt talent into Rhode Island the past few years as Harris has a chance to be a high-caliber A-10 player over the next several years. After recently losing frontcourt players like Hassan Martin and Kuran Iverson, Harris will be counted on to be among the next crop of stars to keep Rhode Island in the perennial postseason picture.
Harris is the fourth commitment in the Rhode Island recruiting class of 2018 as he joins guards Amir Harris and Tyrese Martin and wing Dana Tate in the Rams’ haul.
