Kansas City Native Harrison Signs With PSU Basketball

Updated:

PITTSBURG — Pittsburg State University head men's basketball coach Kevin Muff announced today (Apr. 27) that Kansas City native Maurte Harrison has signed a national letter of intent to join the Gorillas for the 2011-12 season.

Harrison (6-4, 170) averaged 24 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game as a senior at Lincoln College Prep Academy this past winter.  He helped the Tigers to a 19-9 record as well as district and sectional titles.

Additionally, he was selected the Conference Player of the Year and he was named a Mo-Kan All-Star.

"Maurte is a great addition for our program," Muff said. "He fits exactly what we were looking for and needed to round out a talented freshman recruiting class. Maurte possesses the skill set needed to be "great" in this conference.

"He has a competitive nature and believes he can be the best at whatever task you challenge him with. His length will make him an effective defender and rebounder and he can score the ball in a variety ways.

"Maurte plans on majoring in Exercise Science and takes as much pride in his success in the classroom as he does in his basketball honors."

Harrison is the third high school player to sign with Pitt State for the 2011-12 campaign, joining Branson's Sam Pugh and Washburn Rural's Jake Ediger as Gorilla signees.
