It’s been a while since there was a significant recruiting update on in-state point guard Zion Harmon.
ESPN’s 25th-ranked player in 2021 has had a relatively quiet recruitment thus far, partly because he’s had eligibility issues over the last year after transferring three different times already in high school. He was ruled ineligible to play at Marshall County last year.
Tonight, Harmon announced his top seven schools, which included the Kentucky Wildcats, Louisville Cardinals, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, Murray State Racers, LSU Tigers, Kansas Jayhawks and Seton Hall Pirates.
Harmon recently visited Louisville and scored an offer from the Cardinals. But as of now, there are no predictions from 247 Sports or Rivals for where he’ll land. He holds offers from Kansas, Auburn, LSU, Tennessee and Vanderbilt, but Kentucky has yet to offer.
In fact, Kentucky has show very little interest in Harmon (at least publicly) outside of watching him on the AAU circuit. Perhaps Kentucky is keeping tabs on him, as he is a very talented recruit who could develop into a star in college, but the multiple transfers and eligibility issues have made it hard for school to pursue him harder.
At one point, Harmon was actually on track to reclassify into 2020. It’s unclear if that’s still a possibility. I doubt Kentucky would consider him in 2020 with all of the other backcourt targets they still have on the board, but never say never.
