Harris is your typical Tom Izzo-coached guard. He’s physical, he’s bigger than most guards his age and he’s a fighter. At 19 years of age, he’s wise beyond his years in some cases, giving the Spartans a legitimate shot at fulfilling President Barack Obama’s prophecy and winning it all at this NCAA Tournament.
The problem is, the sophomore can’t shoot as well as other guards (42 pct from field, 35 from three) -- which is dropping his draft stock. At one point, Harris was being mentioned as a late lottery pick; now he’s out of the lotto altogether. A great performance at the Sweet 16 and beyond will only help his chances.
