Aanaya Harris

Aanaya Harris is averaging 14.8 points and 6.7 rebounds per game this season.

Omaha Burke junior Aanaya Harris has had a memorable 2019. This summer she earned a handful of Division I scholarship offers, and now the high school season is off to a strong start.

Xavier became her first offer on July 31, and since then she's added Western Kentucky, UMKC and UC Riverside. Harris has also received interest from Creighton, Marquette, St. John's, Minnesota, Florida Atlantic, Colorado and Colorado State. She unofficially visited Creighton and Minnesota during the fall.

Harris, a 5-foot-10 wing, has a diverse skill set. She can score in the paint and has great court vision. 

"I need to get better at shooting from the field and free throws," Harris said. "My best attribute is driving to the basket and passing."

Heading into the Metro Holiday Tournament, she is tied for the team lead in points per game with 14.8 and is second on the team in rebounding (6.7). College coaches seem to like that versatility.

"Some teams see me as a point guard and some see me as a wing," Harris said.

She plans to take a handful of unofficial visits to start 2020.

"I plan to go to Marquette some time in January, and I would like to get to Florida Atlantic," Harris said.
