Matt Alkire, who has been on top of UMass recruiting all season, confirmed the news.

Harris is a two-star recruit and held scholarship offers from Temple, Toledo, Western Kentucky and Western Michigan, according to Rivals. Marshall also extended an offer, according to Scout. 247 Sports has more of the same, but hasn’t given him a ranking yet.
