In a press release sent to NYCHoops, Torrel Harris stated that his son, Tyler Harris, will reclassify after his graduation.
Tyler Harris is the younger brother of top recruit Tobias Harris. Both brothers currently attend Half-Hallow Hills West High School in Glen Head, NY after transferring from L.I. Lutheran HS.
Torrel Harris claims that both of his sons started school early stating, "6-7 Tyler and 6-8 Tobias Harris as we have discussed in the past have started elementary school a year earlier than normal. Tyler should be a rising sophomore and Tobias should be a rising junior. Being the father of six kids I took advantage of the opportunity to enroll both sons into school early as it was big savings on day care."
Tyler's father explained the reason he was reclassifying his son. "At this point in Tyler's career, I think he will benefit from regaining the year he missed in order to mature mentally and physically. We have decided as a family that after graduation from high school at Half Hollow Hills High School West he will enroll as a post grad at an undecided prep school; re-classifying as a graduate of his actual class, 2012."
