Four-Star SF Malek Harris (officially) commits to K-State

After waffling a bit, the 2014 recruit makes it official.

We'd expected it, but the official announcement wasn't until this afternoon. Malek Harris, a 4-star 6'7" small forward out of Orland Park-Carl Sandburg HS in Illinois, has committed to Kansas State.

Harris had committed to Marquette originally, but pulled back after Buzz Williams left for Virginia Tech. He'd been reported as verbally committing back in April, but that report was immediately followed by a backpedal:

Even at that, Harris cancelled a scheduled visit to Virginia Tech after visiting Manhattan, so this announcement today wasn't particularly surprising:

Harris is the 24th-ranked small forward in the nation per 247's composite rankings, and 97th overall; Rivals has him 80th overall. Harris has a big red flag; he was suspended for the first 11 games of his junior season, then the entirety of his senior year. He's spent the year playing with the AAU Illinois Wolves squad, where he averaged 4.6 ppg on 37% shooting and 3 boards a game. Take those numbers with a cliff of salt, however, as they're only over five games and "minutes played" isn't in the stat report.

Here's some visual entertainment to introduce you to the newest Wildcat.
