Marquette started off their 2014 in a big way with the commitment of four-star Malek Harris.

In his time at Marquette Head Coach Buzz Williams has built a culture of toughness. One player who defines the word is 6-foot-7 class of 2014 forward Malek Harris. The Orland Park (Ill) Sandburg product made the decision to pick Marquette on Wednesday.

With his athleticism, toughness, high motor, and ability to get to the rim using the dribble, Harris opened up eyes with his play this spring running with the Illinois Wolves. At the beginning of April it was mostly mid-major interest for Harris, but that all changed in a big way.

Schools such as Marquette, Purdue, Iowa, Creighton, DePaul, Missouri, and Kansas State all offered the versatile combo forward, but at the end of the day he decided to pick the Golden Eagles.

“Officially committed to be a Marquette Golden Eagle,” said Harris via twitter.

Also Harris’ AAU Coach with the Illinois Wolves, Mike Mullins, confirmed the commitment via text message.

Harris was recently elevated to four-star status and No. 76 in the country. He is the first commitment in the class for Marquette, and gives them the toughness and athleticism they love in their forwards.
