Has Top 100 forward Malek Harris committed to Kansas State?

With the coaching carousel being what it is, recruiting tends to change during the spring based upon which coaches move where. With Buzz Williams making the move from Marquette to Virginia Tech, the players who originally committed to Marquette needed to determine their next course of action.

One of those players was combo forward Malek Harris, a talented prospect considered by many scouts to be a top 100 prospect. Wednesday evening it was reported by Evan Daniels of Scout.com that the Orland Park, Ill. native made his decision, verbally committing to attend Kansas State.

However, according to Jerry Meyer of 247Sports Harris will announce his decision on Mother’s Day.

If Harris were to commit to Kansas State, he’d be an important addition for the Wildcats. Kansas State lost Shane Southwell at the end of the 2013-14 season, and Harris will join a front court rotation that includes rising senior Nino Williams and rising sophomore Wesley Iwundu.

Bruce Weber’s 2014 recruiting class currently consists of junior college transfers Stephen Hurt and Neville Fincher and incoming freshman Tre Harris being the others. Kansas State will also add Georgetown transfer Brandon Bolden, a 6-foot-10 big who sat out last season per NCAA transfer rules.

    Not taking anything away from Iwundu because he will develop into a good player but no mention of Marcus Foster??? He was arguably the best freshman in the conference minus KU’s two studs. Also, Justin Edwards is a highly anticipated transfer from Maine who will add depth to the backcourt. Get your facts straight…

      Foster and Edwards are guards. That’s why there weren’t mentioned here.
