Four-star junior Josiah Harris discusses his recruitment

December 27, 2020

Josiah Harris’ main goal entering his junior campaign is very simple: “Win a state championship,” that’s literally all he said and nothing else. The All-Ohio second-teamer is a 6-foot-7 wing out of Cleveland, Ohio. Harris is already a vital member of Richmond Heights’ roster in just one year of being with the program.

Prior to COVID-19 ending Harris’ season along with many others, he was averaging 20 points per game along with 12 rebounds per contest. Harris has displayed his ability to be a two-way wing. Can score on multiple levels and is extremely versatile. He causes tons of problems on both ends and his wingspan is an impressing 7’1 wingspan.
