He is a guy who probably would have been a top 50 JUCO recruit had he stayed for his sophomore year.




I am very excited that NMSU signed Buchanan. But CA, you do realize on paper, Bakersfield still has NMSU covered at guard (on the perimeter).

Their signee Rickey Holden out played our signee Shunn Buchanan head-to-head twice.

And even though we brought in high scoring guard/forward Wayne Stewart, they still have Durham on their team and now bring in Jarkel Joiner (36.5 ppg)... But we do return a hopefully healthy Sidy Ndir.

We closed the gap on the perimeter but our true advantage is in the paint.

TWO WORDS FOR YOU......

AJ HARRIS

I have learned to take all the transfers that come from the big schools with a grain of salt as well. There's a reason he isn't at Ohio State anymore. GCU had a former top 100 recruit fall into our lap two years ago by the name of Dom McGee and I couldn't wait for him to leave. Harris may be what you need to win the WAC but I wouldn't be surprised if he is a flop as well.


AJ Harris choose to leave Ohio State. He wasn't forced to leave so not sure what you are talking about. AJ will enter the season as one of the top point guards in the WAC.

I don't know what you heard Frank, but Magee's decision to leave was all his own, he wasn't run out of town by the coach.

AJ Harris is not some great perimeter defender like you seem to have fooled yourself into thinking, Frank. At least at Ohio State he wasnt. Hes a great player that id be suprised doesnt end up being one of the better WAC players, but he isnt an obvious fix at defense


AJ was a true freshman when he played at Ohio State. He had a year to work on his weaknesses. AJ will have a great sophomore year and will be one of the top point guards in the WAC no doubt. I doubt you know much about him. You are just talking out of your butt.

"Doubt you know much about him" like I wasnt born and raised an Ohio State fan watching their football and basketball teams. Ok, Frank. Id love to see NMSU take another trip to Columbus sometime, though.

RE: JUCO PG Commits to New Mexico State.
If you look into AJ Harris' history it's obvious playing for Ohio State was his dream. However, his decision to leave had more to due with his personal development; not getting stuck on the bench behind other high profile players. NMSU was just fortunate Weir was a slick enough salesman to sell Harris on NMSU's program. Now, Jans needs to do right by Harris and make him into the best player he can be.

As stated, Harris possesses a lot of natural ability. He is lightening quick and has the hops to dunk at only 5'9. And of all the Aggie players, he has probably made best use of the NMSU weight room. He is very strong for his size.

Harris has an extremely good handle with the ball but to two metrics which he still needs to answer are his ability to shoot the ball with range and his decision making as a facilitator. That's what will define him as a point guard.

FYI. AJ Harris is at NMSU thanks to Jesse Bopp, not Paul Weir.

I don't think it really matters why he decided to leave Ohio State. The only thing that matters is that he decided to play basketball for New Mexico State. The combination of Harris, Ndir, and Buchanan is going to be fun to watch this season.
