N.C. State transfer Harris chooses Providence
Tyler Harris, the freshman forward from N.C. State who had USF among his final five schools, has instead chosen to transfer to Big East rival Providence, his father Torrel said via text message Thursday.
"His decision was a very tough one," wrote Harris, whose son will sit out the upcoming season, then have three years of eligibility with the Friars. "He believes in them, how they will utilize him to be a major contribution to the team and looks forward to competing in the Big East."
USF has had good luck with transfers, with three starting on last year's team, which made the third round of the NCAA Tournament after winning 22 games and finishing in a tie for fourth in the Big East standings. The Bulls added another transfer this spring in Florida Atlantic forward Kore White, who is eligible immediately as a graduate transfer.
