Jerrel Harris Named D2 Bulletin Super 16 Preseason All-America

SAINT LEO, Fla. – Saint Leo University men's basketball senior Jerrel Harris has been selected to the Division II Bulletin Preseason Super 16 Team as released by SmallCollegeHoops.com this week.

Saint Leo returns six starters and seven letter-winners from last season's team including Harris, arguably the best player in the SSC and the only underclassman to earn All-Conference First Team honors last season. Sitting out in 2012, Harris's influence was huge in 2013 as he averaged nearly 15 points per game and looks to become even more of an impact his senior year.

Harris, a native of Milwaukee, Wis., is one of two players from the South Region to be selected to the Division II Bulletin Preseason Super 16 team; the other comes from West Florida in senior Ellis Young III.

Harris and the Lions will start their trek toward another postseason journey when they travel to Puerto Rico to play in a tournament beginning on November 8.
