Harris to play both sports at Michigan State

6/27/2012

Michigan State is getting the ball rolling on its 2014 class -- in football and basketball.

Rising junior athlete Drake Harris (Grand Rapids, Mich./Grand Rapids Christian) committed to the Spartans in a ceremony at his school Wednesday.

"I went up to Michigan State and they offered me for both football and basketball," he told WolverineNation’s Tom VanHaaren. "That's what I want and I feel like it's the best place for me.”

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Drake will also join the Spartans on the hardwood and play a combo guard role.

"I know it's hard, but I think I can do it. I'll put in the work and see what I can do," he said about playing both sports. "After the first two years I'll see where I'm at and go from there."

Michigan and Notre Dame were Harris' other two finalists.
