Harris Leaving PC

tyler-harris-st-johns-jakarr-sampson-ncaa-basketball-big-east-tournament-providence-vs-st-johns1.jpg

It what will come as no surprise to most PC fans Tyler Harris has decided he will play basketball elsewhere next year. Here are some tweets from Tyler on his decision:

For the best interest of my future I will not be coming back to Providence and will be playing somewhere else.

I would like to thank all of the fans and supporters at Providence College for giving me such a great experience.

    I’m hopeful Jalen Lindsey turns into what Harris should have been this year

    Good luck to Tyler…but as a player he was too soft.

    Far from a scrub just not the right player here wish him luck elsewhere

    Too bad. It wasn’t a good fit for Cooley or PC. Not a great team player or defense threat. Too bad. He coulda used this off-season to grow and step up

    Why so much anger if a player decides he’s not a good fit for us and wants to go else wear? Saw the same thing last year with Fortune. Pretty sad of our fan base in my opinion.

    Oh and I wasn’t a fan of his at all, but I have no ill will towards the kid.

  15. David Walsh

    March 24, 2015 at 6:51 pm

    I thought he declared for the NBA draft?

  16. George Webb

    Some of these comments are mean. This is somebody’s son. He’s barely an adult. Good luck, Tyler! You did a good job here, and you had a smooth stroke.

  17. Eric Carrier

    Fortune contributed Harris was also!

    He will be taking his talents to the southern conference

    March 24, 2015 at 6:58 pm

    never saw a player get worse in a season like him…certainly not a big loss. i wonder where he plans on playing? A recreation league maybe?

  21. Frank Silvestro

    March 24, 2015 at 6:58 pm

    his mind is tainted by the success he sees his brother have in the nba…he is not a shadow of what a pro player should be

  22. James Clark

    March 24, 2015 at 7:07 pm

    Good

  23. Matt Norman

    March 24, 2015 at 7:08 pm

    Shouldn’t say anything about a college kid (scrub, he sucks, good leave) that’s just wrong. Remember he’s not a pro.

  24. Jarred Rey

    March 24, 2015 at 7:31 pm

    I wish him well but it does not make much sense to leave Providence unless you feel that they are not looking out for your best interest. We have another strong recruiting class and should build on the last 2 years especially if KD returns for his senior year. This looks to me like he feels he is better than what Cooley believes he is and wants increased playing time. Either way I wish him well but it’s not a big loss for the Friars.

  25. Jeremy Nunes

    March 24, 2015 at 7:35 pm

    Not surprising at all, best of luck to him in his future

  26. Peter Ricci

    March 24, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    Good riddance. He was a clown who played no defense and could care less about team basketball

  30. Dan Pellegrino

    March 24, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    He may be someone’s son and he may just be a kid and people should restrain their reactions but this kid played like he was owed something without any sort of passion or hustle – as if the fact that his brother playing in the NBA entitled him to something

    I have been a PC season ticket holder for a long time. I liked Tyler Harris and I thought that he was a good team player. Maybe he didn’t live up to some fans expectations , but it is always easy to judge from the cheap seats. Wishing Tyler Harris the very best in his further pursuits and thanking him for being a good team player on 2 NCAA tournament teams at Providence College!

  37. Jonathan Burre

    Say what you want and I agree with a lot of it, but the guy hit a number of big shots durning the last two years.

  38. Jeff Hoyle

    I wish him luck.

    He just doesn’t like cooley. It’s as simple as that. Wants to be on a lower level team

    Harris had a very disapointing season. After last year I had much higher expectations for him this year but I think it’s good for both himself & PC to move on. At least it wasn’t him who blew last week vs Dayton…

  45. Dan Peterson

    March 24, 2015 at 8:52 pm

    He already transferred once, now again. Here’s a hint dude, it’s not the schools.

  46. Norman Lavallee

    March 24, 2015 at 9:05 pm

    Hey Frank, why don’t you read Coach Cooley’s comments on Tyler Harris. I trust his assessment of Tyler Harris as a player than yours!

  47. Norman Lavallee

    March 24, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Helped The Friars win a Big East Championship and helped to get them 2 NCAA tourney bids in 2yrs. As a Friar, nothing to sneeze at Dan P!

  48. Frank Silvestro

    March 24, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    I’m not in any way more qualified then Coach Cooley but if Cooley believed in him so much he wouldn’t have yanked him as a starter for a unproven freshman in game 5

  49. Frank Silvestro

    Frank, I still think that is an unfair comment that maybe a Rec league, he is a Division 1 College basketball player, Amen!

    Shame on those individuals who are trashing Tyler……True he is not the greatest player in PC history….but he is a fine young man who made some big plays……in crucial games……he was just inconsistent and never realized his potential……good luck Tyler and thank you for your contribution and for helping us win a Big East Championship

  57. Marty Gaughan

    March 24, 2015 at 9:51 pm

    Typical Fair Weather PC fans …. Tyler is just a kid who obviously didn’t fit into Ed Cooleys game plan this season … He started 35 games a year ago and only 12 this year … I hope Tyler finds a Good fit cause with that height and shooting ability , he will make some team very happy … Good Luck Kiddo and Have a Great Senior Year wherever U land …. Pay no attention to Providence Fans .. They think Ernie D and Marvin and Billy Donovan are walking thru their Doors again ….

    No team play. Hated being in Dunn’s shadow and thats all that showed. Since family members in Pro’s he thought he was entitled. And it stuck out
    And I was born a PC fan. My Father was a Captain.

  60. Frank Silvestro

    March 24, 2015 at 10:14 pm

    I agree that was a bit harsh…maybe he can play in Europe.

    Sorry to see him leave. Kid had a couple of tough games and the Fans get on him. Look at the numbers Vs minutes played coming off the bench. He will be missed.

  64. Norman Lavallee

    March 24, 2015 at 11:20 pm

    Anthony Razza, I am glad that somebody has respect for a good Division 1 player. A lot of comments out there are negative on Tyler Harris’s career with the Friars. Sour grapes never helped any situation get better!

  65. Norman Lavallee

    March 24, 2015 at 11:25 pm

    Thanks Ron, I agree with your comment and appreciate it!

  67. Kevy O'Grady

    March 24, 2015 at 11:41 pm

    feared this would happen
    even if Dunn leaves he wouldnt be the star for next year, but certainly a very important part of the team
    he may have be the only person left capable of a 30 pt game

  68. Joseph Narciso

    March 24, 2015 at 11:54 pm

    I just think he’s not that talented.

    His dad is a pro scout. His game can be showcased elsewhere…simple as that.

    Hopefully his dad knows what all other non pro scouts know. He isn’t pro material.

    Agree Marty. I was disappointed in his overall play this year, but he did help us ‘re ach the tournament last year. People have very short memories! Best of luck to him!
