Harkless down to 5; deciding Wednesday

Although Maurice Harkless is only a junior in high school, he is ready to make his college decision on Wednesday.

Harkless will choose between Connecticut, St. John’s, Kentucky, Fordham and Seton Hall, confirmed Nathan Blue, Harkless’ advisor and AAU coach.

Blue added that Harkless does not have a favorite at this point – despite a New York Post story saying that Connecticut is in the lead – and will make up his mind Wednesday.

“Honestly, no [he doesn’t],” Blue said in a text message on Monday. “I will always support Maurice no matter what he chooses on Wednesday.”

Harkless has visited St. John’s, Connecticut, Fordham and Seton Hall but has yet to visit Kentucky. He does not plan to check out the Lexington campus before making his decision.

Blue said that Harkless is looking for one main thing in his future school – being successful.

“I think he’s looking to win a lot,” Blue said. “All the teams on his final five but Fordham have a combined, like, two losses.

“So he’s still undecided as of today.”
