Four-star guard—and Georgia’s best available prospect—Gicarri Harris committed to Purdue on Wednesday. 

Harris chose the Boilermakers over his other finalist, Georgia Tech. 

In Harris, Purdue is getting a guard with size and physicality—thus, one that can play in the Big 10. Harris’ specialty is his ability to consistently impact games in multi-faceted ways. 

While he doesn’t have the same wow-factor or pop as some others in this class, Harris scores, defends, rebounds his position, makes plays for others, and he does so every game. There aren’t many players as steady as he is.

Harris has been a Purdue lean for as long as they’ve been recruiting him. Matt Painter has prioritized him and has made multiple trips to the Atlanta metro to see Harris. 

Most recently, Harris led Loganville (GA) Grayson to a season-opening win against the No. 2 player in the 2024 class, Ace Bailey and the highly-regarded Powder Springs (GA) McEachern team. Harris finished with 20 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds in the win. 

Harris joins four-star prospects Kanon Catchings, Raleigh Burgess and three-stars Daniel Jacobsen, Jack Benter and CJ Cox to round out a top-10 class.
