Blake Harris has been a coveted recruit since he received his release from Washington and returned to the recruiting market. Harris, who is from North Carolina, has already taken one visit to NC State. Kevin Keatts would love to have him on board for 2017.

The four-star prospect got plenty of interest after opening things back up, but he is down to four schools at this point, per Adam Zagoria: Michigan State, NC State, Missouri, and Rutgers (?!).

The Missouri connection might prove difficult to beat: Michael Porter Sr. was an assistant at UW and his son had been committed to play there before Lorenzo Romar was fired. New Mizzou coach Cuonzo Martin made a shrewd if short-sighted decision to hire Porter the elder, bringing his one-and-done son to Missouri in the process.

If Harris still wants to play with Michael Porter Jr. and play for Michael Porter Sr., he’ll be able to do that at Missouri, which Cuonzo has turned into a sort of midwest Frankenstein.

Harris told Zagoria he plans to visit all four schools next month and a decision should come near the end of the month.
