NCAA Approves Waiver for Jon Harris

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Jon Harris, who transferred to Cleveland State in May after three years at Miami (OH), will be eligible to play right away after the NCAA approved a waiver.

The 6-foot-7 forward, a native of Twinsburg, will have one season of eligibility remaining in 2013-14. He earned three letters at Miami (OH).

Harris will provide the Vikings with an experienced veteran and will be the third senior on the roster, joining Devon Long and Ludovic Ndaye.

Harris shot 45-percent (92-204) from the field, including 39-percent (47-122) from three-point.

In 30 games as a sophomore, Harris made 25 starts and earned Miami's Darrell Hedric Most Improved Player award. He posted 8.5 points and 4.1 rebounds per game, shooting 37-percent (58-155) from three-point.

As a sophomore, Harris ranked among the Mid-American Conference statistical leaders in three-point field goals (1.9 per game, 7th), three-point field-goal percentage (.374, 13th) and minutes played (33.3 per game).

He played in 26 games as a freshman, averaging 1.9 points and 0.7 rebounds.

Harris was an honorable mention all-state pick as a senior at Twinsburg H.S. when he averaged 20.1 points and 13.0 rebounds per game. He was the conference Player of the Year after leading the team to a 17-5 mark and the league title.
