Herb Harrison of Marietta’s Covenant Christian Ministries Academy will sign a basketball scholarship with Alabama-Birmingham on Friday.
The 6-foot-8 forward also had interest from Mercer, Western Kentucky, Marshall and Stetson, among others. Harrison, who played previously at Druid Hills High School, averaged 23 points and 8 rebounds this past season.
“He’s tall, a good shooter and slasher, and athletic around the basket,” Covenant Christian coach Frederick Anderson said.
Harrison’s teammate, point guard Michael Murray, has signed with St. Augustine. The 6-2 Murray averaged 22 points and 4.5 assists this past season. “He’s a good scorer, they got him to score point,” Anderson said.
