Michigan State Spartans Land Transfering West Virginia Guard Eron Harris

While Michigan State hasn’t been luring in an abundance of five-star prospects as of late, they have landed the best transfer in the nation on Monday.

Eron Harris announced Monday morning that he will be transferring from West Virginia to Michigan State.

ESPN analyst Jeff Goodman also broke the news via Twitter on Monday.

 Harris, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard, left West Virginia after his sophomore season, and will have two years of eligibility remaining at Michigan State. He will have to sit out the upcoming season. That places him in the class with the current players who will be sophomores this fall, point guard Alvin Ellis III and forwards Gavin Schilling and Kenny Kaminski.

The announcement was expected after Harris canceled a visit to Michigan a week after visiting Michigan State the weekend prior.

Michigan State and U of M were two of the schools Harris was considering, along with Purdue, and the Spartans could certainly use his scoring ability from the perimeter, as he averaged 17.2 points last season in Morgantown.

Harris is Tom Izzo’s third commitment for the 2014-15 season, joining wing Kyle Ahrens and fast-rising power forward Deyonta Davis.

He is also the first transfer to Michigan State since Brandon Wood from Valparaiso in 2011.

The Spartans have also reportedly shown interest in Bryn Forbes, a Lansing native who played the last two seasons at Cleveland State.
