WKU has added an important piece to next year’s men’s basketball team.

Coach Ray Harper announced Tuesday that the Toppers will add point guard Chris Harrison-Docks, a transfer from Butler, to the program next season.

Harrison-Docks has already enrolled at WKU and is eligible to practice with the Toppers. He will not be eligible to play in a regular-season game until after the first semester of the 2013-14 season and will have three and a half years of eligibility.

Harrison-Docks, a native of Okemos, Mich., was a three-time first team all-state player in high school and is the leading scorer in school history at Okemos High School.

Harper said he is excited for the addition.

“We could no be more pleased to be able to bring a player of Chris’ caliber to WKU,” Harper said.

Point guard was a major point of concern for next season. Senior guard Jamal Crook, the only true point guard currently on the WKU roster, is playing in his final season of eligibility.

Harper said Harrison-Docks should be able to distribute the ball as well as put it in the bucket.

“He’s a true point guard that can really shoot the basketball,” Harper said.
