Montana State University-Northern head men's basketball coach recently announced the signing of Tacoma, Washington guard David Harris to an NAIA national letter of intent.

Montana State University-Northern head men's basketball coach Shawn Huse has his first recruit in the 2019 signing class.

Last week, Huse announced the signing of David Harris, a 6-4 guard/forward from Tacoma, Washington. Harris is coming to Northern from Highline Community College in Des, Moines, Washington.

"David has an infectious positive energy and demeanor that really helps maintain a great team climate." Huse said. "He is a high-character guy and we are extremely excited to have him on board. Not to mention, he has accomplished a great deal the past two years as can be seen by looking at his stats and honors."

Harris attended high school at Tacoma's Science and Math Institute (SAMI). However, SAMI does not have high school basketball. He played his final two years of basketball at Lincoln high school, while attending SAMI.

In the two seasons at Highline CC, Harris earned First Team honors, averaging 19 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.1 steal, and 0.3 blocks per game for his career.  He shot high percentages from the field (52 percent), three-point line (40 percent), and free throw line (82 percent) for his career.  He helped High-line to an overall record of 19-10 last season.

"I and Coach Dawson (Highline CC) really feel like his best basketball lies ahead of him." Huse said. “His game continues to develop and improve more and more all the time.  Having started playing for a high school or college team only the past four (out of six) years, he has already done a remarkable job. With what David does on the floor, he really helps fill voids left behind through Caulin and Justin graduating.  We are extremely excited to have him board."
