Combo guard Jaaron Harriott (6'4", 180 lbs) out of Sylvan Hills High School (AR) has signed an NJCAA Letter of Intent to join the Greyhounds for the 2020-21 season.
Harriott helped the Sylvan Hills Bears (20-8) to the 5A State Tournament quarterfinals before falling to eventual Co-State Champion West Memphis. The Bears finished tied for second place in the ultra-tough 5A-Central conference with a 10-4 record under Head Coach Kevin Davis. The athletic guard averaged 8 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals per game while shooting 48% from the field after missing most of conference play with an injury.
Playing varsity for three seasons, Harriott is listed as the 19th best senior in Arkansas by Arkansas Basketball Rankings (https://arkansasbasketballrankings.comco2020boys), and he played on a team with concensus national top 150 player Jalen Ricks as a sophomore and junior and national top 50 player Nick Smith as a junior and senior.
Harriott is the fifth ASU Mid-South signee this spring, following Torien Stewart from Southwind High School in Memphis, Cullen Brown out of Rivercrest High School (AR), Jacob Hudson out of Cabot (AR), and Tae Smith from Blytheville (AR).
