  • PLAYER BIO

    Ae'Rianna Harris began her high school basketball at Ben Davis on the west side of Indianapolis, before transferring to Lawrence North on the northeast side of Indianapolis at the end of her sophomore year. Early mentions among national scouts as a top forward in her class were due to her college body and athleticism. By the start of her senior season, she had risen to a top 20 prospect, and the honor as being the state of Indiana's top player in the paint. Her knack for rebounding, especially on the offensive end, has been a necessary compliment to the rather offensively gifted high school and summer teams she has played on. She averages a double-double, and frequently outworks opposing post players. She is only scratching the surface of her talent.

    Harris committed to Purdue on November 2, 2013, in her sophomore season after making her first visit to the Purdue campus. She had been getting local attention up to that point, and chose the Boilers citing the team structure and closeness of the coaching staff.

  • SCOUTING REPORTS

    Scouting report by ProspectsNation..."Ae'Rianna Harris, a 6-foot-1 forward out of Indianapolis, Ind., was one of the best athletes on the floor today. She is an explosive player who altered every shot in her area and finished with power as well.” (July 24, 2015)

    Scouting report by Dan Olson of Collegiate Girls Basketball Report..."Explosively athletic interior performer with college-ready frame pounds glass, initiates fast break; quick-leaper, post defender, alters shots; superb in uptempo game; elevates over defender in paint with soft touch; among the elite power forwards in the 2016 class." (July 2015)

    Scouting report by Scouting Indiana..."Ae’Rianna is arguably one of the top shot blockers in the state. She almost baits people into thinking they’ve beaten her off the dribble, then from behind she clobbers the ball into the 3rd row. She’s a good rebounder with length and athleticism, and she’s starting to put together a nice back-to-the-basket game offensively." (Indianapolis Star, August 7, 2013)
