Xenia picks Bearcats over Kentucky.

Former Xenia star transferring from Cincinnati

Meechi Harris is on the move. 

The Xenia High School graduate announced Sunday night he has decided to transfer from the University of Cincinnati, where he played one game this season as a freshman. 

“Just so everyone is informed,” Harris wrote on Twitter, “I am transferring from the University of Cincinnati. Nothing is wrong with the program or staff. I also want to thank the university for everything they had to offer me. Ever since my injury, I’ve been working to get back to feeling right. I am not sure where my road leads next, but with a prayer to God I am sure my destiny will continue on the path of happiness.” 

Harris was a three-star prospect and the No. 20 player in Ohio in the class of 2018 according to 247Sports Composite rankings. 

He chose coach Luke Fickell’s Bearcats on signing day last December after initially committing to Kentucky.
