CORMIER ON HARRISON
“Eli is a bit of an X-factor for us. We went after several strong shooters during the recruiting process, and Eli is one that we landed. He was one of the best, if not the best, player in his league, but he will have some adjustments to make, as all freshmen do, getting up to speed with the college game. How quickly he can make those adjustments will determine how quickly he can make an impact on the floor.”
