Most assumed Gary Harris would be heading to the NBA this year and according to a report from CBS, that's exactly what is going to happen.  Here is the tweet giving the basic info:

This would be a big loss for the Spartans.  Gary Harris averaged 16.7 points and 4.0 rebounds per game.  Harris is projected as a Lottery pick this year.

MSU will need players like Alvin Ellis III and Denzel Valentine to step up if this report is true.

UPDATE:

Though CBS seems pretty convinced that Harris is going pro, there were a few comments that make it seem like no decision has yet been made.  First, Jeff Goodman of ESPN tweeted this:

Along with Goodman, Mike Wilson of Scout reported that:

"Gary will probably make a decision in the next couple weeks," Izzo said. "He could surprise me like A.P. did, but I think he can be a very solid pick."

So things aren't quite 100% yet, but things still do look pretty likely that Harris is headed to the NBA.
