Harris, 6-foot-7 out of Sandburg High School in Orland Park, Ill., is ranked No. 80 nationally by Rivals.com.
He decommitted from Marquette after former coach Buzz Williams left for Virginia Tech in March. Two other players that had committed to the Golden Eagles, Ahmed Hill and Satchel Pierce, decommitted from Marquette and committed to Virginia Tech in April, according to the Hampton Roads (Va.) Daily Press.

Since taking over the job, Wojciechowski has shored up a commitment from 2015 commit Nick Noskowiak of Sun Prairie and also landed transfer Matt Carlino for next season after the 6-foot-2 shooting guard graduated from BYU with a year of eligibility remaining.
