An already impressive Oklahoma State men’s basketball recruiting class picked up a significant piece with the Friday signing of four-star guard Chris Harris Jr.

Harris, a 6-foot-3 recruit out of South Garland, Texas, was ranked 97th nationally by, among the top 25 shooting guards in the nation by ESPN and the No. 13 player in the state of Texas by 247Sports.

As a senior, Harris averaged 18.6 points per game on 45.6% shooting and 37% from 3-point range with 5.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 steals per game to help his team post a 30-7 record and secure a trip to the regional finals.

On 15 occasions, he scored at least 20 points.

Last summer, Harris attended the NBPA Top 100 Camp and the Pangos All-American Camp, both reserved for elite prospects. In AAU competition, Harris played with Houston Hoops on the Nike EYBL circuit.

Harris signed with Texas A&M in November but was released from his letter of intent following the dismissal of coach Billy Kennedy. Harris’ other offers included Texas Tech, Kansas State, Baylor, Arkansas and Georgia Tech.

Coach Mike Boynton’s recruiting class was ranked 23rd nationally by 247Sports before Harris’ signing. The Cowboys also have Memorial twins Keylan and Kalib Boone in the class, along with guards Marcus Watson and Avery Anderson III.
