Update: Class Of ’17’s Jerry Leaves Texas

Jerry Harris.

One of KERA’s Class of ’17 high school freshmen, Jerry Harris, injured his foot on vacation and and is wearing a “boot” these days until it heals. He’s certainly not doing what he loves: shooting hoops.

But when he does again, it won’t be at Coppell High School. That’s because he’s decided to spend the year living with his dad in Oklahoma — and hopefully playing basketball at Plainview High in Ardmore. Jerry’s mom, Susie Evans, tells us in an email that she, Jerry and his divorced father started discussing the move this summer.

We’ll check in with Jerry again soon.
