Minnesota basketball coach Richard Pitino has picked up another big-time guard for the 2017 signing class.
3-star guard Jamir Harris committed to the Gophers on Wednesday, meaning he’ll join forces with 4-star guard Isaiah Washington, who committed to Minnesota on Sept. 11.
Glad to officially be a gopher.

247 Sports lists the New Jersey guard as the state’s No. 10 recruit for his class. Harris is scheduled to visit Minnesota later this month on Sept. 30.
While playing for the Playaz Basketball Club (New Jersey) in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League, Harris led his team in 3-pointers while making around 40-percent of his 3-point attempts.
Pitino seems to be excited by the news, judging by his Twitter account.
