Marshall County, KY- Thursday afternoon 2021 4 star Marshall County High Point Guard Zion Harmon cut his list down to seven schools that include four from Kentucky that include WKU, Murray State, Louisville, and Kentucky. The remaining three programs consist of a blue blood program in Kansas, LSU, and Seton Hall. Harmon had 13 offers and has taken unofficial visits to Louisville and Murray State.
The once ranked five star #1 overall player and point guard nationally in the 2021 class lost the top spot as 247Sports has Harmon as a four star point guard and ranked 30th overall (#5 PG) nationally and number 1 Prospect in Kentucky. Many speculate his drop was due to his size coming in with a 5’10” 160lb frame. Although considered small in today’s game the crafty guard’s ability to create and score against anyone leaves you to believe he could have a be a successful point guard at the highest level.
Others speculate about Harmon’s inability to find a home and stay with one program. Harmon did not play in the 2018-19 season after being ruled ineligible after moving from Adair County (KY) his freshman season and leading the state in scoring averaging 32.7 points per game helping Harmon earn the Max Preps National Freshman of the Year. As an 8th grader Harmon was a main contributor averaging 17 a game and shot 44% from the field for the Kentucky Sweet 16 Champions, Bowling Green High School.
Kentucky isn’t the only place Harmon and his game has shined. Harmon proved his skill this summer in the AAU/Grassroots circuit playing at the highest level in Nike’s touted EYBL bringing in the Kansas and Louisville offers. Harmon led Boo Williams to the famous Nike EYBL “Peach Jam” Final 4.
He has a nice resume that includes multiple invites and named an All Star & Top 5 at the nationally known Pangos Elite Camp, a NBAPA All Star and named to the top 10, a CP3 invite, and the Slam Summer Classic 1 on 1 champion.
Harmon and Marshall County open up the season hosting Dawson Springs December 9th. Is a verbal commit coming soon or will Harmon wait until next summer?
