WVU Basketball Commit Josiah Harris Outperforms Competition in Peach Jam



West Virginia basketball commit Josiah Harris was recognized on Wednesday for his great summer outing against some of the top competition in his high school class.

Harris—a forward in the 2022 class—recorded a double-double at the 2021 Nike Peach Jam event. The future Mountaineer averaged 16.3 points and 10.4 rebounds and was the only player to record a double-double at the event.

The Peach Jam is an event where the top high school players come together to participate in games to get in front of recruiters and some go to get more attention on them.

Last month, Harris was matched up against the No. 2 player in the 2021 class Emoni Bates and did very well against the former Michigan State commit. Harris was able to give Bates some trouble with his stellar defense. Harris also finished this game with a double-double.

Harris committed to head coach Bob Huggins and staff on March 31 as a three-star. According to 247Sports, as of Aug. 5, the 6-foot-7 forward is ranked No. 240 in the country, while No. 8 in the state of Ohio. As Harris gets ready to begin his final year of high school, expect that ranking to rise as he continues to impress people.
