After a standout freshman season at North Scott High School, Josiah Harrington is geared up for a busy spring and summer on the Nike sponsored EYBL circuit and in the gym working to become stronger and improve mobility. This past weekend the 6-foot-4 Class of 2027 prospect was playing in a warm-up event in Bettendorf with AAU teammates from the Meanstreets program.

“It has been fun so far meeting my new teammates and getting to know them on and off the court. We have been getting in some practices and the new team is really a lot of fun,” he said.

This weekend the Meanstreets 15U team went 2-0 with one-sided victories on Saturday afternoon. This coming weekend will be another warm-up event and then the EYBL circuit will get underway later this month with college coaches in the stands.

“I can’t wait to start the EYBL season to get started and play against some of the best players in the country. It means I get to see where I am at against the best players and where I need to continue to improve.”

While he is working on his game, Harrington, who averaged 13.3 points per game and shot 46.5% from three as a freshman, is looking to add muscle to his frame this spring and summer.

“One of my big goals off the court is to get stronger. I felt like I could have done more on the court this past year if I was stronger, so that is m focus. I want to add 20 pounds of muscle, that’s the goal,” he said.

College programs can’t officially have freshmen on campus for unofficial visits, but Harrington made it to Ames and Iowa City this year for games. He made the trip to Iowa City later in the year and came away impressed.

“The coaches seem to be good guys and I liked the facilities at Iowa,” he said. “I thought the environment there was great.”

Expect to see college coaches watching Harrington this spring and he should have a very busy fall making unofficial visits to college programs.
