Michigan State guard Gary Harris, the reigning Big Ten Freshman of the Year, announced Thursday that he's returning to the Spartans for his sophomore season.
"I'm looking forward to my sophomore season with my Spartan brothers," Harris said in a statement. "When the season was done, Coach Izzo gathered a lot of great information and shared it with me and my family. After talking things over with my parents, it is my decision to remain at Michigan State."
Harris was considered a potential lottery pick. He helped lead Michigan State to the Sweet Sixteen, where they lost to Duke. He was second on the Spartans with 12.9 points per game and lead the team with 65 three-pointers.
"Playing in the NBA is definitely a goal of mine, and something that I've always dreamed of, but those dreams can wait for another day. "I think additional experience and maturity will be huge in my development as a player. I have other dreams of things I want to accomplish, both as a player and as a team at Michigan State. I love college life, and I'm no hurry to move on."
