Dominick Harris, a sophomore point guard at Pacifica Christian High in Newport Beach, California, is the first member of Gonzaga’s 2020 recruiting class.
Harris, who attended Saturday’s Gonzaga-San Francisco game with his family and prep coach, announced his commitment Sunday on his Twitter account.
“I loved the staff and how they treated me throughout the journey,” Harris said. “They were as committed to me as I was back to them. They felt like they want me to be the future point guard in their program.”
Harris said he had 11 scholarship offers and was receiving interest from programs such as UCLA, USC, Florida State, Stanford, Georgetown and North Carolina.
The 6-foot-4, 170-pound Harris made 10 3-pointers and scored 50 points in a win over Cornerstone Christian last season.
Harris earned California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Division 6 Player of the Year honors as a freshman while leading Pacifica Christian, a first-year program, to the championship game. He averaged 25.3 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.6 assists and three steals, according to the Orange County Register.
Harris is averaging roughly 25 points per game this season with at least one 40-point effort while seeing frequent double teams and box-and-one defenses.
“Get my teammates involved,” said Harris, when asked what he does best. “I take full responsibility on the defensive end because I love defense. I feel like I can score at all three levels.”
According to 247sports.com, Harris will be listed as a four-star prospect when the site’s rankings are updated.
Guard Greg Foster Jr., from Clark High in Las Vegas, and Montverde (Florida) Academy forward Filip Petrusev will join the Zags next season. Gonzaga Prep forward Anton Watson and Kittitas High guard Brock Ravet are in Gonzaga’s 2019 class.
