Sencire Harris Commits to West Virginia

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia basketball program hosted two former Illinois players, and moments ago, four star recruit Sencire Harris announced that he’s committing to play for the Mountaineers next season. Harris, a 6’3 guard from Akron, Ohio, is known for his energy and effort defensively, and was ranked as high as the #62 prospect in the nation out of high school across different media outlets.

As a freshman at Illinois, Harris averaged 3.7 points and 2.1 rebounds per game, and then redshirted last season.New associate head coach Chester Frazier is responsible for bringing Harris to Morgantown.

According to 247’s Director of Scouting Adam Finkelstein, “Hansberry has some of the best hands in high school basketball, excellent footwork, and a very high acumen for the game. While he doesn’t have elite size or explosiveness, he’s versatile and able to impact winning in a variety of ways. He’s a scoring threat with both hands around the rim, poised in the post, crafty with his use of fakes, able to create space with his broad shoulders, and a very good passer from multiple spots on the floor. Simultaneously, he’s a reliable free-throw shooter and continuing to expand his face-up game, without sacrificing his efficiency. He’s a high-volume rebounder, able to win 50-50 balls because of his length and hands, and in all the right spots on both ends of the floor.”

Harris will likely be in the starting lineup for the Mountaineers on the completely revamped roster under new head coach Darian DeVries.
