Harris transferring to Michigan St from W.Virginia

Posted:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - High-scoring guard Eron Harris is transferring to Michigan State from West Virginia.

His father, Eric Harris, says Monday that offers were turned down from Michigan, Wisconsin, Purdue and UCLA.

Harris was the Mountaineers' second-leading scorer at 17.2 points per game last season and averaged a team-high 9.8 points the previous year as a freshman.

After sitting out a year, Harris will be able to play during the 2015-16 season when the Spartans will need to replace current guard Travis Trice. Harris will have two years of eligibility.

Michigan State opens next season on Nov. 14 at Navy. Coach Tom Izzo is counting on Branden Dawson, Denzel Valentine and Trice to lead the team without Adreian Payne, Gary Harris and Keith Appling.
