K.T. Harrell ‘s Recruiting Card

K.T. Harrell

Asked how many points per game he is averaging, K.T. Harrell didn’t have an answer. Certainly, the 6-4, 205-pound guard knows he is doing well, but he is simply not interested in individual accolades. Only one stat matters to the Brewbaker Magnet (Montgomery, AL) senior, and that’s wins.

“Our team is doing really well,” said Harrell. “We’re 10-3. We’re definitely playing like we pretty much expected. We have a lot of talent on our team and we’ve played together.

“As far as what I’ve done individually, I can’t really tell you anything. I don’t really get into all that. The team is winning and that’s what I love.”

Harrell, who is averaging 31 points, about 12 rebounds and about six assists per game so far this season, can score from the outside or by taking the ball to the basket. In Brewbaker’s last game, a 10-point win over Montgomery Academy last Saturday, he scored 40 on 14-of-27 shooting from the field.

“I get points all around. I can get points anywhere,” said Harrell, who has scored at least 40 points on three different occasions this season.

Knowing what is most important to future head coach Tony Bennett, Harrell’s next point of emphasis is improving on the defensive end.

“I know he’s a defensive coach and that’s what I’ve been working on lately,” said the talented senior. “I’ve been working on my quickness on the defensive end.”

Over the past few years especially, Harrell’s hard work has paid off in a big way. He didn’t play much AAU basketball in 2008 and missed Brewbaker’s entire 2008/2009 basketball season due to transfer rules. Although he wasn’t playing much organized basketball, Harrell was working with his father, Rodney, to prepare for when he would take the court again.
