One of the most sought-after transfers still on the market is West Virginia shooting guard Eron Harris. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 17.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game in his sophomore season at West Virginia, but opted to transfer closer to his home in Indianapolis.

Harris also had impressive shooting splits as he shot 43 percent from the field, 42 percent from three-point range and 85 percent from the free-throw line.

Now it appears that Harris is focusing on three Big Ten schools, according to a report from Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star. Two of those Big Ten programs are also scheduled to get a visit from Harris in the near future.

Purdue has already received a visit from Harris and now Michigan State and Michigan will host the shooting guard on visits in the near future.

Michigan State is scheduled to host Harris on Saturday while Michigan will reportedly host him on June 6-7.

Harris would have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer regulations, but the guard would have two years of eligibility remaining after that. Michigan State and Michigan recently lost sophomore shooting guards to the 2014 NBA Draft as Gary Harris and Nik Stauskas both went pro earlier this spring.

    He better go to a zone school. This kids defense is absolutely atrocious. And he dribbles the ball off his foot twice a game. Good riddance. He might make a good wing, just don’t expect him to score off the bounce.

    Purdue is definitely closer to Indianapolis than Morgantown. East Lansing and Ann Arbor, not so much.

    If he can’t play D, as Musketmaniac advises, he won’t be on the floor in East Lansing. How are his flopping skills? You need those skills to play in AA.

    Does he call the other teams players the n word? Hed fit right in at MSU. Denzel valentine is the leader.

    He might do well in the zone. He can definitely shoot, and he can finish at the rim, though he has trouble getting there. Beilien is a genius, and loves his zone.
