Fayetteville, Ark. – On Wednesday Arkansas Razorback forward Alandise Harris was denied immediate eligibility by the NCAA after transferring from University of Houston.

Harris, 6’6”, 230 pounds, is considered a beast on the court to defend with unlimited physical abilities. As a sophomore he averaged 13.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game for the Cougars. His skill set is considered a great match for the up-tempo style of offense and full court pressure Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson likes to instill in his teams.

Harris was a three-time Arkansas All-State selection and four-time all-conference selection during his prep career while playing for Central High School in Little Rock. During his senior year he averaged 20.3 points, 10.7 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.7 blocks per game.

Houston transferred to Arkansas due to family concerns.

When Harris steps on the court for Arkansas during the 2013-2014 season he will be considered a junior with two years of eligibility remaining.
