Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks have a new weapon in their arsenal for the coming years: four-star point guard Dajuan Harris. With the Rock Bridge High School star now enrolled at Kansas, Self opened up about his newest guard.

In a statement, Self expressed his excitement for bringing Harris in and looks forward to seeing him contribute. However, he made it clear that he will be used in a limited capacity this coming year and will instead have him focus on his studies. Harris is expected to redshirt in 2019-20 after enrolling late.

Bill Self added that he expects Harris to contribute "right off the bat next year."


“We are very excited to have Dajuan... He’s going to be in a limited capacity and this will give him the opportunities to focus on books, focus on getting stronger and put himself in the position to be a contributor right off the bat next year.”

247Sports has him as the No. 93 player in the country, the No. 7 point guard, and the top prospect from the state of Missouri.

Harris initially committed to Missouri State before changing his mind and committing to Kansas this summer.

There were a few academic hurdles to clear before he could make it to Lawrence as a 2019 recruit, and there were fears he wouldn't be able to enroll this fall.

Fortunately, it was revealed this week that he completed his necessary coursework and is now on campus.
