Chris Harrison-Docks, the son of former University of Kentucky basketball player Chris Harrison, has transferred from Butler to Western Kentucky.

Harrison-Docks is enrolled in school and practicing with the Hilltoppers, and he will have 31/2 years of eligibility at WKU beginning after the first semester of next season.

"Chris is a great addition to our basketball program," WKU Coach Ray Harper said. "He has a very high basketball IQ, and he is as competitive of a player as you could find. He can shoot with range, and his dedication to improving his skills is evident in how he enrolled in school early so he could begin practicing with our current team right away. We could not be more pleased to be able to bring a player of Chris' caliber to WKU."

Harrison-Docks played in both of Butler's exhibition games in November, but the 5-foot-11 guard quit the team the day before the Bulldogs' regular-season opener.

Harrison-Docks was a three-time first-team all-state guard at Okemos (Mich.) High School after playing one season at Louisville Trinity. He averaged 23 points, seven assists, six rebounds and nearly four steals as a senior, and finished his high school career as the all-time leading scorer at his high school with 1,426 career points.

Harrison-Docks was rated as a three-star recruit by coming out of high school.

Chris Harrison played for UK from 1991-95.
