GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro Day junior Bryce Harris received a scholarship offer from Wake Forest University on Sunday morning, per his Twitter account.
Harris stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 215 pounds. He primarily plays out on the wing, but is versatile and causes mismatches for opposing teams with his ability to stretch the floor.
Greensboro Day went 31-5 overall in its 2019-20 season and posted a perfect 10-0 record in Piedmont Triad Athletic Conference play for the second year in a row.
The Bengals were the two seed in the NCISAA 4A state playoffs and advanced to the semifinals before losing to Cannon School, 75-64, at Providence Day School on Feb. 21.
Harris averaged 13 points per game on 48% shooting from the field during his junior campaign, while also grabbing seven rebounds each outing.
He transferred to GDS prior to his junior year after playing his first two seasons of prep basketball at Brentwood High School in New York. Harris earned NCISAA 4A all-state honors and was named the PTAC Co-Player of the Year for his efforts this past winter.
The Demon Deacons are the first high major program to extend an opportunity to Harris, but the 11th school overall to show interest in the rising senior — Bryant, Elon, Howard, Lafayette, Merrimack, N.C. A&T, Rice, Siena, Stony Brook, and UNC-Wilmington are the other nine institutions.
as its next head men’s basketball coach. Forbes recently coached at East Tennessee State University, where he complied a 130-43 record in five seasons there. He won two Southern Conference regular season and tournament championships as well — 2017 and 2020.
Harris joins Heritage High School junior guard as the second in-state player to be offered by Forbes and his new staff in the past 24 hours.
