The South Carolina Gamecocks' loss may be KU's gain. Damontre Harris has narrowed his possible transfer destination down to either Florida or Kansas
Damontre Harris was an All-SEC defensive team player for the South Carolina Gamecocks last season, but the sophomore forward is now seeking a transfer. This may work out quite well for KU in the future.
Harris' high school coach stated that the player had rules out the Marquette Golden Eagles as a possibility and has narrowed the list down to Florida and Kansas based on the two school's similarity of play and how well they would accommodate his playing style.
The 6'10 Harris averaged 6.8 points per game and 5.5 rebounds per game in the 2011-12 regular season. He is known for his shot-blocking skills and his work on offense is said to be steadily improving.
