UIC picked up a late addition to its 2014-15 roster with Wagner transfer Jay Harris choosing to join the Flames. Harris will be eligible immediately for the start of the season.

Harris averaged 10.3 points and shot 38.6% on 3-pointers last season for the Seahawks. Prior to his time in New York, he played a pair of seasons at Valparaiso in the Horizon League. He averaged 9.0 points for the Crusaders as a sophomore.

“Jay will add tremendous experience to our program,” UIC head coach Howard Moore said. “He has played and excelled in several high-pressure games throughout his career and he will serve as a great resource to our underclassmen and newcomers. He’s a fantastic shooter and the ultimate competitor.”

Harris is one of four transfers joining the Flames for the 2014-15 season. He joins junior college transfers D’Juan Miller, Kaylen Shane and Jason McClellan. UIC also adds a pair of freshmen in Tai Odiase and David Ramon.
