Herman Harried came to Syracuse as a highly touted player from renowned Dunbar High School. He was nicknamed the 'Helicopter' because of his phenomenal leaping ability and long arm span. Unfortunately, he would have a devastating knee injury prior to his sophomore season, that would force him to miss the entire year, and would reduce his athletic abilities.

Harried did not see much playing time his freshman year because of the presence of talented upper classmen Raf Addison and Wendell Alexis already on the team. By time Harried was able to return from his knee injury, the team had superstar players such as Derrick Coleman and Stephen Thompson on board.

Harried would become a valuable reserve player, with the ability to play a few minutes each game, providing needed rebounding and inside scoring. He had virtually no perimeter shooting ability, and was a horrendous free throw shooter (career 38% shooter).

After he graduated, Harried played basketball in the British Basketball League. His leg had time to get stronger, and he blossomed into a star player for the Brighton Bears for three seasons (1990, 1994-1995). He would finish his career there with 2,363 points, 1314 rebounds (a team record), and 168 blocks (second in team history). His career average would be 24.6 points per game, 13.7 rebounds per game, and 65.6% field goal shooting, all club records. He would be a BBL All star in 1994 and 1995, leading the team to league championships both years. His coach in 1990 was former Syracuse player Dale Shackleford, himself a former star for Brighton. He would play another season in Portugal and one in Greece.

Harried returned to the United States to coach high school basketball at Lake Clifton, Maryland, in 1997. He would guide the time to three state championships, and would later add the athletic director role to his responsibilities.

He was the head coach of the 2006 USA Hoop Summit Team.
