Many people assumed that Michigan State Spartans guard, Gary Harris, would turn pro at the end of last season. Those people, luckily for Michigan State, were wrong. However, fans of the Spartans were a little nervous lately because of a high-ankle sprain that was limiting Harris’ contact at practice.
Well, they need to worry no longer. According to a team spokesperson, as first reported by MSULive, Harris has been involved in full-contact practices since some time last week. Also, Harris is expected to be a part of Michigan State’s Midnight Madness, which takes place this Friday.
Harris hasn’t practiced at all since the official practices began in college basketball. Getting him back now, getting re-acclimated with his team and his abilities, is definitely a good thing for the Spartans. All Harris has to do now is live up to the other-worldly expectations that people have for him as well as the program. No pressure, right?
As a freshman, Harris averaged nearly 13 points per game and was named Big Ten freshman of the year. He is currently being touted as one of — if not the — best shooting guards in the entire nation.
You can expect Harris to showcase his abilities when Michigan State opens the season on November 8th, at home against McNeese State.
