The Stanford men's basketball program added another piece to its future under coach Johnny Dawkins when Altamont School's Gabriel Harris committed to the Cardinal on Monday, according to scout.com.
Harris, a 6-foot-2 point guard, had an outstanding all-around senior season, averaging 18.9 points, 8 rebounds, including at least five double-doubles, 4.4 assists and 3.9 steals to lead the Knights to a 17-8 record.
He was named Birmingham News Hoover/South Player of the Year in Alabama.
"It was a learning year for me, Harris told the
News. "I learned more about basketball and I was more prepared to play. I studied a lot more film. I don't think I'd nearly be as developed as a player if I hadn't gone to Altamont. Everything kind of came together for me and I think the numbers back up my game."
Stanford loses four seniors (Lawrence Hill, Anthony Goods, Mitch Johnson and Kenny Brown) and will be without Will Paul next season.
Harris joins 6-8 Mater Dei senior Andy Brown, who suffered a torn ACL during his senior season, as Stanford commits.
