Zion Harmon is one of the promising high school stars on the rise in Kentucky, but he may not get to play this year.
Harmon has been ruled ineligible by the KHSAA, according to Joe Jackson of the West Kentucky Star.
BREAKING. According to multiple sources, the KHSAA has ruled Zion Harmon ineligible to play basketball at Marshall County this season. Expect Marshall to appeal.— Joe Jackson (@JoeJack74) August 15, 2018
Harmon has already played for two different high schools and he’s only going into his sophomore season. He played at Bowling Green High School in the eighth grade, and played at Adair County as a freshman last year.
Harmon is currently in the class of 2021. He’s rated a five-star prospect and the No. 8 player in the class according to the 247 Sports Composite.
The 5-9 guard already has five offers, three of which come from SEC foes (Vanderbilt, Aubur and Tennessee). He’s also had interest from Louisville and Kentucky.
Harmon’s father previously said that Harmon would do the work to give him the option to reclassify if he decided to. We’ll see if potentially losing a season of high school basketball impacts that decision.
