From watching his release, it looks like a "push" shot, which is similar to the technique a lot of women use when they take 3pt shots...Ball's shot is also unorthodox but they seem to go in...go figure

Coaches Take: If there is such a thing as a Class of 2020 PG, being productive, efficient, unselfish, exciting, against the elite competition in California, Dominick Harris qualifies as trailblazer for the new generation of guards to hit the basketball scene. Dominick is a athletic and explosive guard with a lethal first step and crossover ability, exceptional handles that allows him to get into the lane effortlessly. He is a solid passer who always looks for the open man….He is a premier on the ball defender with extraordinary lateral quickness that frustrates his opponents, his huge wingspan allows him to play bigger than his size of 6’3". Dominick has an exceptional mid-rang game, and he is equally as deadly behind the arc, he finishes masterfully above the rim and is an exceptional scorer at 25ppg. He is extremely coachable with a great attitude and loves to practice and develop his game, prototypical gym rat.

Offers: Stetson, Cal Baptist, Abilene Christian, Eastern Washington, California Irvine

Interest, unofficial visits: USC, UCLA, Kansas, University of Maryland, University of Texas, Utah, Florida State, Gonzaga, San Diego State, UNLV, Texas Tech, Stanford, UCSB, Tulane, Pepperdine, UCONN, LMU, Illinois. Thus far.

Wasn't one of the reasons we hired Daniels for his California recruiting connections -- seems like we complain when we don't get looks from those recruits and we complain when we do. Would rather having him "wasting time" on good players -- especially since he is getting them to come to Spokane to take a look at the program-- never know what will happen when we get them here.

Abs true but gotta admit his "yield" w/HSers has been paltry. Higher hit rate with transfers and 5th years. Recruiting has changed so much last 5-10 years, I suspect DD's approach with HSers is anachronistic.

He got the kid to visit us in Spokane -- that is half the battle. Maybe he is a kid who doesn't like the overpriced everything and traffic/crowds/earthquakes associated with Cali-- Spokane might be a good fit --but he needs to be here to see it.

I'm willing to give Daniels credit for getting a good recruit to consider us and come to Spokane for a look.

Strange release of the ball on his shot. Of course he made them so.......

Exactly, on his release his left hand is almost on the top of the ball instead of the side. We were always told by that at his age if you make a major change to your shot, especially if you are already a good shooter with quick release, it will often end up making you a worse shooter (but that was mid to late 70's, lol). Also, as Maynard mentioned if the refs don't call the high dribble, at the college level D1 he could be a good target to get picked.

Now, not a criticism of him as I know nothing of how good this kid could get and my observations as well as some others mentioned already are just observations- how good he could be at the next level, well, that's up to college scouts and coaches to decide, not me.... Just watching that clip I was drooling over him as a Zag and the possibilities!

It’s all about the release and his release is pretty. Shot goes in which is all that matters in the end. He’s only a sophomore so the strength will come most likely allowing him to have a higher release.

Since others are talking about Ball, he’s not making many this year but he shot well in college which is all I care about when it comes to our players.

Harris is elite and will be a stud in college, hopefully at GU!

I think Dominick is destined to stay close to his So Cal roots, yet we're the biggest school to be on him early.

No power-5 offers yet, but we saw something in him as a Frosh.

I agree, he plays the game right. A terrific PG prospect.

Hoping showing interest, as no other schools really have, pays dividends later.

Its just a matter of time before UCLA, Zona, USC, Hurley @ ASU, et al come knockin on his door...

Cool videos but for a youngster doing cutting edge training exercises (wow!) with what looks like high end equipment, he needs to notice how Lonzo Ball’s broke jumper is hurting his game, get a shooting coach and re-build his stroke this summer...btwn frosh and soph year of HS.

Harris would be a wonderful get, yet feel we are wasting our time with him. Coach Few was just interviewed as addressing how the Final 4 run has increased their recruiting net, yet also wasting more time with recruits wasting our time. Listing us just to list us or gain recognition. Not saying this is the case here, but just an example.

I love that we're on him early, as he continues to grow and dominate his fellow competition (has scored 40 & 50 pts several times), but he's a So Cal kid with So Cal roots.

I have a feeling he's sitting, waiting, wishing for USC, UCLA, Stanford, even SDSU to express some serious mutual interest.

We've shown a big-time interest in this kid, Coach Few himself, Daniels a couple wks ago during SDSU game, now Lloyd in person. You never know, and we are laying heavy groundwork, but also shining a light on him.

Just a matter of time before one of his hometown schools offer him. Just tough to pull a life-long beach goer to Spokane. Its been done, but since Austin Daye. And Daye lived a bit inland in Irvine, this kid lives in New Port Beach!

No coincidence his schools of interest are: Cal, Gonzaga, UCLA, USC, Stanford, SDSU, and nearly every So Cal school

Thus far, Harris has UNOFFICIALLY visited: Cal, SDSU (right after we lost to them & it was his 2nd visit), UCLA (a second visit), USD, USC, LMU, & Pepperdine.

Recruiting trail: https://247sports.com/Player/Dominick-Harris-46048026/TimelineEvents

I hope I eat crow, yet this kid ain't leavin' Southern California by the time 2020 rolls around.

What "facts"? That we have shown interest in smaller point guards? Why is that disturbing? There's an old saying it's not the size of the bulldog in the fight but the size of the fight in the bulldog. I've got a pretty good feeling that Liam Lloyd will eventually wind up being a Zag.

I think Harris has a chance to be the highest rated guard we've ever recruited out of high school. Whatever problems you might find with Wade and Ravet's games, I don't see how Harris fits the same mold. He is a legit 6'3, long armed, and is already throwing down through the legs dunks as a sophomore. Nabbing a good player out of SoCal is a tall task, but Donny Daniels and Tommy Lloyd have both been in to visit him, so you know the interest level is high.

Maybe. All I’m saying is if his team scored 35 points losing to Bishop’s down here, he can’t be much. Perhaps he was out.

So you are saying you know nothing about the game that was played or even if the player in question participated. But based on that the sophomore in question "can't be much". That is awesome.

What "facts"? That we have shown interest in smaller point guards? Why is that disturbing? There's an old saying it's not the size of the bulldog in the fight but the size of the fight in the bulldog. I've got a pretty good feeling that Liam Lloyd will eventually wind up being a Zag.

Let's hope Liam Lloyd grows before the Zags take him on. He is a gunner with the occasional slash to the hoop if it is given. But he is soft on D, avoids contact and needs to mature a lot (yelling and blaming teammates when he messes up is not a good attribute). Do not get me wrong LL has a good basketball build and has the ability to be a deep 3 threat and has shown some hops, but as of now put a guy with similar skills and LL is pretty much a non-factor.

Of course he is not a D1 player today. He is only a sophomore in high school. How many sophomores are D1 players today. He is definitely D1 material considering he will be eligible in 2020.

we simply CANNOT take any more chances/flyers on players who can't defend at this level, or even have the physical attributes to do so.

I'm fine with Ravet, Wade, etc, but how quickly have we forgotten....we went to the National Championship game b/c our defense was ranked #1!

We didn't beat West Va with finesse, 3pt shooting, & high IQ bball. We won with DEFENSE, DEFENSE, & some toughness/strength thrown in for good measure.

He just copy and pasted Dominick Harris' fathers tweet from yesterday that said "Zagup"...which is a common term used by many players at Gonzaga to represent their pride in being a Zag. Its a good sign they are drinking the Bulldog Kool Aid and starting to become a heavy lean. Honestly with as much activity that has occurred with Dom recently, i would not at all be surprised if he is an early commit for 2020 by this spring.

The Kennel is much harder to get into than the Louvre, and we do have a rain forest up there in Washington :)

I would actually advise anyone who has never left their home town to live to try somewhere else for a while. I am a home body and love Spokane, but I ultimately found a lot more for me in my current city. I could easily see myself moving back some day, though. It’s amazing how many former players stay in Spokane or return after playing abroad. Spokane has a lot of appeal, and I’m sure it doesn’t hurt these guys to be a celebrity for the rest of their lives in Spokane.

I won't give a breakdown of his footage, as it's already pretty obvious that this thread needs to stay about the news of him committing.

Having said that, he's got a chance to be a Top 50, maybe Top 30 player. Just a sophomore. A lot of room to grow physically, mentally/emotionally, and from a skills perspective. If he progresses the same way Anton Watson has, then everyone should be very happy about getting a commit this early.

He's 6'3" 170 as a sophomore. Sounds like he could be a Zack Norvell-size combo guard. And with the versatility that this offense is going to need, along with the needs that make the motion and face-up/dribble drive attack possible. It's going to be much less of a headache to have two guys who have good size, adequate handles, but can also play off the ball and score. Given that it's the Mark Few offense, there will probably always be a "true point"-type player from a mentality perspective. But...I like the idea of having more Zack Norvell's to play alongside wings like Corey and Rui.

Things are a'changin', folks. Some remnant of the old school will always be there, but GU is gonna look more like 'Cuse or UNC going forward, than previous iterations. In terms of makeup and talent.

Oh, and can we drop any of the "but muh recruits!" with respect to Coach Daniels? This was a huge get. If he ends up being higher than 37th, then he's the highest recruit we've seen. Coach Daniels has been vital to the success of this program since he arrived. Hopefully, this is the crack in the dam that breaks things open.

Coach Daniels is in his 8th season at GU. The continuity within the coaching staff is a huge contributor to our success.

Perhaps we jumped the gun a bit on what last year's trip to the Final Four would mean in recruiting. With the additions of Brandon Clarke, Filip P, and now Dominick, I think it's safe to say the outlook for the Zags remains onward and upward.

Right, I just remember pretty recent question of Donny Daniel's ability to recruit, and the reality is we may not have made the Final Four without Jordan Matthews, nor would we be as likely to have gotten this kid. As well, we might not have seen the big man development from a talent perspective.

A verbal commit from a 14/15 year old player that is mid way through his sophomore season is something....but it aint much. As someone that has lived this recruiting game up close and personal for over 15 years I can tell you that as this kid gets better, the big boys will swoop in a recruit him just like he was uncommitted. He still has two full summers of AAU ball to play in front of the Caliparis, Selfs, etc. All the stuff the FBI recently exposed can come into play. If this kid does end up top 50 Few and company will have their hands full keeping him committed.
In reality a verbal with a player this young means next to nothing. One thing to keep in mind is that a lot of AAU coaches will tell these real young kids with offers to "publicly commit"to the first major school that offers because it gets the kid exposure and it effectively binds the University, but not the kid. If he blows up he can always decommit and go somewhere else, but if he doesn't progress the school is still on the hook, unless they want to publicly renege on their promise to sign the kid
Not saying that is what this kid did, but it happens a lot. Recruiting at the highest level is dirty, dirty business

Won't argue with you at all MileHigh. Good breakdown on your part.

I get the sense however that this "particular" kid doesn't fall into that box. He & his family seem to be very strong spiritually from all the things that I've read thus far. Would seem out of character. But ultimately, only time will tell.

Most learned (as in learn-ED) post in this thread. In the next few years in Summer tournaments, Coach K or Calipari walks in, shows some attention and I don't know what might happen. I do agree with 50 about this particular family's spiritual connection. Still though, other places will come calling unless Few is so revered, nobody would think about courting Dominick. I hope it's the case. He seems like a superior kid and could change the complexion of this fine program ( in an upward direction once again). No doubt he's got the goods. Let's hope for the best. He seems like a difference maker.

I watched the Harris family carefully for a lot of the game the other night. I had a very strong, positive feeling about his father. Can’t explain it but he seemed very solid. This decision was certainly not made solely by a 15 year old kid. I have a feeling he has a very grounded set of parents to help him deal with recruiting issues to come.

When is the last time a freshman/sophomore in HS committed to us publicly but then was recruited by one of the handful of higher profile schools and jumped ship?

I'm not asking sarcastically, I'm genuinely curious. I've been paying pretty close attention since Few took over though and not a single guy comes to mind.

I know stories of guys that kept getting recruited after verbally committing, but did anyone actually ever leave us?

I for one am celebrating this commitment the same way I celebrated Brock Ravet and Anton Watson. They both committed pretty early and have been rising in the rankings since they've verbally committed, but I have no worries about any of these guys not wearing a Zags jersey.

Jordan Farmar was pretty much all set to come to Gonzaga until his long lost father (yes, his dad had very little involvement in his upbringing) came out of the blue and insisted his kid go to UCLA. Mom really, really wanted him to go to Gonzaga. She had bonded with the staff. The entire team went to see Jordan play during the Los Angeles WCC trip. But keep in mind that Jordan was offered by Florida (who was GREAT back then) and other big time schools. There was just something about UCLA that was really important to the old man.

However, Jordan never committed to Gonzaga. But his mind was definitely changed by an influence that just came out of the blue that the GU coaching staff (and other staffs) weren't expecting.

I wouldn't lose any sleep over this happening to Harris. The Farmar thing was bizarre and unlike any recruiting story I am aware of in the past 30 years of Gonzaga basketball. Moreover, Gonzaga is coming off a national title game appearance. The program's stature is at a different level.

Brock Osweiler committed to us very early on, then changed his mind. But that was
More based on a decision to pursue football rather than basketball than another program swooping in.

If someone was worried about a decommit, one way to worry less would be to get these kids in contact with each other (if they're not already), let them bond together now and feel as brothers looking into the future.


As for Mile High's reality about kids helping themselves by committing a school early, I don't begrudge any of these kids seeking whatever advantage they might obtain to even things out.

Harris said he had 11 scholarship offers and was receiving interest from programs such as UCLA, USC, Florida State, Stanford, Georgetown and North Carolina.

You don't draw interest from Florida State unless: 1) you are tall and lengthy for your position 2) you are athletic for your position 3) you can play defense.

Dominick says "he loves" playing defense. Not many high schoolers say that.

Head coach Rhett Soliday is from Reardon and if you follow state B action you know the name is synonymous with Reardon basketball.....for Zag fans who don't know, Reardon is a small town west of Spokane that was a powerhouse and dominant in the state B small school classification for years.

He scored 57 points over two San Joaquin League games against Saddleback Valley Christian. Harris, a 6-foot-3 sophomore point guard who committed to Gonzaga, scored 26 points with four 3-pointers in a 73-70 loss to Saddleback Valley Christian. Three days later he scored 31 points with five 3s in a 69-66 win over league-leading Saddleback Valley Christian.

You mean #3 in black? Dom is definitely going to be a combo guard. But as the dribble drive motion becomes more and more a part of the GU identity, I don't know that you'll need as much 'true point', as we have come to expect. Perhaps Coach Few will never completely step away from that, but players like Dom are the future. Namari Burnett is #25 in white, I believe? Smooth stroke, gonna have a good frame.

You mean #3 in black? Dom is definitely going to be a combo guard. But as the dribble drive motion becomes more and more a part of the GU identity, I don't know that you'll need as much 'true point', as we have come to expect. Perhaps Coach Few will never completely step away from that, but players like Dom are the future. Namari Burnett is #25 in white, I believe? Smooth stroke, gonna have a good frame. Both he and Dom have that Shabazz Napier style game. Can't hate that. Namari is gonna blow up on the scene.

Yes, I meant black, my bad. I will change it. Watch the video again and watch him, he has elite pg skills.

Thanks for posting that, his jumper looks nice, but if I'm being 100% objective, the opposing pg, #3 in black was more impressive; amazing vision for a pg, great handle, great shooting and penetration to the hoop. Dom is taller than #3 and looks to be more of a combo guard, where as # 3 is all pg all the way. Any idea who #3 in black is, kids a stud pg.

I think that kid is a year older than DH though. That can be a big difference for a HS kid.

I saw Garfield in person a couple of times. Cockrell is ok but not Zag level imo. Scored 19 in the state semifinal game I attended. Francis Williams reported during the televised state champ game that he had received the Texas Tech offer after that game.

Fifth best player on his hs team imo. I think the Zags have better guards in the pipeline already. PMac was great in video highlights too.

As to Garfield players, Marjon Beauchamp would be a great get, but playing for Roy, he's likely to go to UW or a national P5 program imo (no inside info).

The Garfield guy who I think is better than his offers is Jamon Kemp; athletic 6'6 wing who defends, can shoot the 3 and makes good decisions w/ the ball.

"Shawn Harris begins his first season as an assistant coach at Vanguard University in 2016-17 season. Harris arrivesat Vanguard after serving 15 years at the high school level throughout the Inland Empire as a varsity coach, coaching men and women's; and more recently he gathered valuable experience on the Junior College scene at Mt. San Jacinto College as a men's assistant coach, with responsibilities in player development, academic mentorship, and top recruiting coordinator due to his strong relationships with sponsored AAU programs.

Before becoming a coach, Shawn was a distinguished retail executive with the top Fortune 500 companies in various locations throughout Southern California. In 2010, he was recognized for his tireless work in the community, and has been a member of the Rotary Club of Menifee for several years, modeling the way for "service before self."

He also founded Erudition Leadership Academy and ELA ELITE, who's mission is to provide resources to stimulate education, leadership, and social growth; building character by equipping our youth with the vital skills necessary to become effective leaders in their immediate communities through empowerment, discipline, self-respect simultaneously through sport development. The organization serves as a viaduct to unify parents and educators, community leaders, local businesses, and all other community agencies that are dedicated and committed to the development of social and ethical behavior of our youth, utilizing sports as a powerful elixir to build confidence and promote unity in our community.

As a decorated military veteran of the United States Marine Corps for eight years, he understands the importance of strong leadership, discipline, and the motto of "Leave no man behind", where his has demonstrated countless times as a coach is that respect, integrity, hard work and dedication, has no substitute and is imperative for success.

Shawn grew up in Berlin, MD., and earned a bachelor's of science degree in management from the University of Phoenix.

Honestly, I think 247 is the more accurate of the sites, as they put more resources into it. ESPN doesn't seem to spend a ton of time on the basketball recruiting side of things (also, doesn't update that much).

I like ESPN the most. They don't do as much regional coverage, but being too regional-centric can also leave you with a fatally-flawed national ranking system. As well, ESPN recruiting feeds the brand building far more than 247 ever will.

No. The pass is low. He catches it at his waist, but shoots from in front of his face. Granted, it is a low release. But Jeremiah Dominguez' release was lower, and he made 7 3's v the Zags. If he can create space and get it off quickly that can compensate for a low release point.

I follow Dominick and his dad on Twitter, both are great follows. Today his dad posted him training and it's a great post. He followed it up by talking about the GU boards and the skepticism on here. Those of you who are skeptics remember that recruits and their families read these boards. Keep your opinions positive, as our culture here at GU is a family culture. Don't be the drunk grumpy uncle and be negative about everything, if you don't like a recruit it happens, but keep it to yourself. Get off your high horse and trust the process, trust Few, Tommy, Donny, etc that they are bringing in guys that work hard and fit our system. Honestly, no one really cares who you want or don't want, we all just want a winning program. Please look at this tweet and remember your voice can be heard both positively and negatively.
