Dominick Harris made headlines when he scored 50 points in a game. As a freshman.

The 6-foot-3 point guard from Pacifica Christian went on to win the John R. Wooden Award as the Division VI high school basketball player of the year from Southern California.

Harris answered the following questions from Galen Central via email:

How would you describe your game to somebody who has never seen you play?
“I would describe myself as a dynamic guard, who can score at will at all three levels. I aim to take over the game as a two-way player with my offense and defense. I strive to make my teammates better through my leadership on the court.”

What aspect of your game would you like to improve?
“I am relentless, in trying to improve my game in all aspects of the game of basketball. Leaders never stop learning.”

Who do you your model your game after?
“There is a lot of great players out there, I try to take a lot of elite things out of players’ games, such as Dame Lillard, Kyrie, and John Wall.”

How has your recruitment gone so far?
“The recruitment process is going great. I currently hold 5 division one offers and tons of interest from PAC 12, Big Ten, SEC, BIG West, ACC, and WCC schools.”

What stands out to you about USC?
“Their commitment to excellence is unmatched and lines up with who I am as a person on and off the basketball court.”

What do you like to do off the court?
“I’m a huge family person. I enjoy competing, so things like video games and table tennis. Helping people is a priority to me, so I spend a good amount of time helping younger kids get better in basketball.”
