Josiah Harris FInds New Home

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — Former West Virginia forward Josiah Harris has found a new home. Harris, a 6’7 sophomore from Canton, Ohio, has chosen to play at Akron. Harris averaged 5.0 points and 4.1 rebounds per game last season for the Mountaineers and will join two other former West Virginia players, Seth Wilson and James Okonkwo, at Akron. Both Wilson and Okonkwo announced that they have committed to play there a few days ago.

Here is what Harris had to say to Mountaineer Nation when he departed West Virginia:

“Dear Mountaineer Family,

I am referring to you as family because that is what you are. When I left my family in Ohio two years ago it was difficult, but knew that the departure would not be forever and that it was necessary in order to grow from a boy to a man. That is what West Virginia has done for me. I walked through the doors as a boy, and I am both saddened and proud to say that i must leave you a man, but a man who is truly blessed. Blessed to not only have a Bachelor’s degree, but in May, a Master’s degree that will be permanently engraved with the West Virginia University insignia.“
