Creighton may have been late to the Ronnie Harrell recruitment, but it didn't take them long to win him over. The 6-foot-6 wing pledged to Greg McDermott and his staff just a day after his official visit.

Ronnie Harrell, a 6-foot-6 wing out of Denver (Colo.) East, wasn’t necessarily expecting to be a committed prospect shortly after his official visit to Creighton. But his visit this past weekend sealed the deal.

“That trip won me over,” Harrell told Scout.com. “After the trip I think that’s when I really made up my mind that, that was the place I wanted to be.”

Harrell also took an official visit to Purdue and had LMU and Kansas State pursuing him. In the end, Creighton’s fan support, the coaches and his future teammates helped him reach a decision.

“It’s a great school overall,” he said about Creighton. “They have an amazing fan base. The fans are great. The team is great. When I was out there they treated me like one of their little brothers. The coaches are great. I just think it’s a great fit for me. The style of play fits me all the way around. It was my best decision.”

Creighton actually got involved with Harrell late in the recruiting process, but he built a good relationship with their staff in a short period of time.

“They actually started recruiting me kind of late, about mid-July,” Harrell said. “But it seemed like we clicked since the first day I talked to the coaches. All the guys are great. The players tell you that, that they care about them.”

“I’m very excited,” he added. “I just got to get in the gym. This is only the start.”

Harrell is regarded as a three-star prospect.
