Four-star power forward Jermaine Harris has some big time offers, but he will head to play his college ball in the Atlantic 10.
Today, he went with the Rams, despite a number of bigger offers.
Washington Post writer Jacob Bogage was on hand for the commitment today, and grabbed video of the announcement.

Harris explained his decision to WaPo, citing Rhody’s loyalty to him as a recruit throughout the process as a major factor.
“They’ve been with me since Day One, even when I was a bad player,” Harris said. He took three visits to the campus in Kingston, R.I., and coaches visited the school numerous times since his sophomore year. “You could feel the connection with the players and coaches. It’s like home there.”
Kansas, Maryland, Miami, Southern Utah, and West Virginia were all involved in his recruitment earlier in the cycle, and he also holds offers from the likes of Georgetown, Georgia, Penn State, Virginia Tech, among others.
This is an incredibly impactful pick-up for head coach Dan Hurley and the Rams program.
