Tobias Harris, Mr. New York Basketball 2010, committed to the Tennessee Vols in 2009 and helped his Half Hollow Hills West go on a great run this past season. The Tennessee Vols have a bright future ahead of them by reeling in ESPN's number five ranked player from the class of 2010.
But at the McDonald's All-American Game, Harris aggravated a foot injury that he sustained during the regular season with Half Hollow Hills.
Last night, Harris cleared things up on his injury as many had suspected that he had broken his toe. He tweeted, "Broke my foot not toe...Everything happens for a reason I'll get back better".
Tobias is a fighter. Imagine racking up 14 points against other high school superstars and then realizing the injury is getting bad. That's what happened with Harris at the All-American Game. He was fighting this injury through some of the season and was still able to achieve honorable titles, awards, and recognition.
Tennessee made a surprisingly great run in 2010 and their team can only get better with the addition of Tobias Harris. A Tennessee recuiter that nabbed Harris said his injury might not be that serious, as recovery time could just be a week to 10 days.
But that was when everyone thought that it was a toe injury. A recovery time for the broken foot has not been determined yet.
Harris is a superstar basketball player. His future is not in doubt, but is looking very promising. Through his great coaches, trainers, and determined father, Tobias will get back into shape quickly and possibly be better than ever.
For him to be better than he already was, that is a scary thought.
