Reporter: Tim Floyd Signs Former 4 Star Center Rashanti Harris

Memphis Commercial Appeal writer Dan Wolken is reporting, via Twitter, that former Georgia State signee Rashanti Harris has decided to play for Tim Floyd at UTEP.  Harris was the #26 ranked recruit in the nation (Rivals, #37 ESPN) in 2009 before shockingly signing with Georgia State despite having offers from Ole Miss, Memphis, and Mississippi State.  He's a 6'8, 238 lb. forward/center.

Harris didn't play for Georgia State in 2009-2010 because he couldn't become academically eligible.  Harris was regarded as the highest regarded recruit to ever sign with Georgia State.

Harris was the 2008 Mr. Basketball in Mississippi as he led New Hope High School to the Class 4A state title. He averaged 19.7 points, 15 rebounds and 4.5 blocked shots while shooting 65 percent from the floor.

Wolken has also posted, via Twitter, that Harris' signing was related to UTEP hiring William Small.  Small, from what I have found, was the lead recruiter at Georgia State and signed Harris to play there originally.  I have not been able to find any confirmation that Small has joined Floyd's staff or that he has accepted an administrative job with the Miners.

I couldn't find a lot of video on Harris, but I did find this.  Enjoy.
