Pretty exciting update on Malek Harwell who I am super high on. Some quotes below from a Rivals article. I kind of thought we were out of the running for Harwell, so I’m glad to see he is still considering Lehigh:

“Boise State, Lehigh, Colorado, Portland, Utah State, San Francisco have all offered, and California has been calling. I’m open to everybody still, but I’ve tried to cut it down a little bit. I’ve still got Colorado, Boise State, Lehigh, San Francisco and Portland for now.”

Lehigh’s coaching staff has also done a very good job of keeping in contact with Harwell. “I like Lehigh a lot. They seem like an Ivy League school, but they aren’t. I like [assistant] coach [Ryan] Krueger. He’s been the one recruiting me the most. I’m really a big fan of the coaches that stay in contact and recruit me as a priority and build a relationship with me. I put Lehigh on there for that reason. They said they see me as a C.J. McCollum coming in.”

“I want to decide before high school season. I’m going to take my visits and probably decide right after my visits. I’m definitely going to take Boise State, Lehigh and Colorado visits. I’m just looking for a school where I can fit in and impact it right away. I want to go somewhere I have a great relationship with the coaches. I’ve been looking up and studying what the programs are about. I think my best skill is my shooting and both Boise State and Lehigh are known for their shooters, so those would be good fits for me.”
