Junior Kain Harris has confirmed that he’s transferring from Morgan Park to St. Rita. Harris plans to enroll at St. Rita sometime this week.
The move comes just two days after winning the Class 3A state championship with the Mustangs.
“He’s gone,” said Morgan Park coach Nick Irvin. “I don’t know why he’s doing that. His parents were probably upset that he wasn’t starting. I haven’t talked to either one of his parents.”
The 6-3 guard is considered one of the top ten players in the state’s junior class. Harris, the cousin of former Crane star and current NBA player Tony Allen, showed a great deal of potential this season. He had an impressive stretch of games in December where he put up some serious scoring numbers.
Harris will join Kentucky recruit Charles Matthews on St. Rita’s squad next season, which should be one of the area's best.
“It’s pretty wild,” said Irvin. “You win a state championship and then you leave. But that’s what they wanted to do."
According to a St. Rita spokesperson, Harris has not been accepted into the school for this semester or any future semester.
