Four-star combo forward Malek Harris (Orland Park, Ill./Carl Sandburg) committed to Marquette on Wednesday over offers from the likes of DePaul, Illinois State, Iowa, Kansas State, Miami (Ohio), Purdue, Oregon State and St. Louis to give the Golden Eagles their first 2014 pledge.
"I always had a gut feeling about Marquette, I just wanted to give other schools an opportunity to recruit me,” Harris said. “Once they offered, they made me a priority. I love coach Buzz [Williams] and I think I fit in with everything they do and I could really see myself there. They have a lot of guys on the team that are just like me. It just was a good fit in every way."
Harris is indeed a great fit at Marquette. So what is the strength of his game and what will he bring to the Golden Eagles?
