On Tuesday, WVU basketball commit Josiah Harris competed in the first day of the Peach Jam—which is a youth basketball invitational for top talent in high school to compete against each other. This can be used to impress recruits or just to work on individual skills.
Harris committed to Bob Huggins and the West Virginia Mountaineers on March 31. To no surprise, it seems like Huggins has found another gem in the state of Ohio.
Harris—a Cleveland, OH, native—was placed up against Emoni Bates on Tuesday. If you’re not familiar with Bates, he’s been compared to Kevin Durant since he was a freshman in high school. Harris went up against the No. 2 player in the country for the class of 2022 and was able to give Bates problems.
Harris not only performed well on defense against Bates but was able to finish the summer game with a double-double.
The future Mountaineer is ranked a 3-star on 247Sports but I would expect that ranking to go up after this summer circuit.
West Virginia fans, get ready. The future of Mountaineer basketball is very bright.
