Like you said, he'a only a third year. If he comes back next year, which is likely, he'll be in the all-American conversation and the ACC POY conversation. I'm pretty sure Stith was first team all-ACC 3 times, but Harris could take it to the POY or even all-american level. He might not have the nba career that Stith did, but then again, I'm starting to wonder if Joe can actually find some real success in the NBA. I mean, he's strong and he's a great shooter. A month ago, I thought he might sneak onto a roster. A year from now, he could be a shoe in for the first round. Stith was the 13th pick. When you look at everything, I think they could have similar careers. Then again, I thought SS might do well in the NBA though, and he didn't do much of anything. So few make it at the next level. One thing I will say is that Stith and Joe are very different players. When you watch Joe, he really stands out as a bigtime player. I always thought Stith was a quiet player, who didn't make mistakes, but didn't wow you every time he stepped on the floor. His 20+ points always snuck up on you. He was subtle and methodical. With Joe, there's more of a wow factor, and it's never a surprise when you look at the box score. Hoo knows what will happen in the next 13 months and beyond. Joe has the potential to pass Stith, but he has a long way to go. It would require him staying for his 4th year and winning POY in the ACC or making the all-American team.

Someone else agrees. He also includes a few stats I hadn't noticed with regard to points per shot attempt.
