Missouri freshman Blake Harris to transfer from the program

In News by Blake Lovell

Missouri freshman Blake Harris will transfer after receiving his release from the school.

The point guard averaged 3.8 points and 2.4 rebounds while averaging 14 minutes per game this season.

According to a story from Dave Matter of the St. Louis-Post Dispatch, Harris stated that he “can thrive and do better things at a different place.”

Harris also notes that he had been considering transferring “since probably Thanksgiving.”

The Chapel Hill native was rated as a 4-star prospect in the 2017 class.

Lovell’s Analysis

This is a surprising move considering that Harris played 17 minutes or more in six games this season.

And most recently, he tied a season high with 22 minutes in the team’s 70-64 loss to Illinois.

Juniors Jordan Geist and Terrence Phillips will now carry the bulk of the load at point guard, but it did appear that Harris was in fine shape to be the point guard of the future for this program.

The Tigers scored a big win at South Carolina on Wednesday, and will now turn their attention to hosting Florida this weekend.
