Zion Harmon appeal denied, still ruled ineligible

Class of 2021 guard, Zion Harmon has had his appeal to play this season at Marshall County High School denied by the KHSAA. The Marshals would Harmon’s third school in the last three years. He played for Bowling Green his eighth grade year and last season played for Adair County.

In August, the KHSAA ruled the high school sophomore ineligible due to their rule that a player must sit out a year if they transfer schools. This rule can be tweaked if a player has circumstances that they control like their parents moving for work.

Harmon almost immediately appealed the decision, but it was denied on Thursday according to the West Kentucky Star.

One of the radio show’s regular callers, Harold, lives in that area and has been following the story. He said that Harmon’s father is working locally and thinks the KHSAA should let him play.

The five-star guard currently has offers from teams like Alabama, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, WKU and Auburn. It is possible that he could be a possibility for Calipari in the next year or so.

Harmon is an electric player to watch. While he is only 5’11, he makes up for it with good ball handling skills and shooting. I personally would like to see him in Blue and White in a few years. You can watch Harmon work below:

    No offense to KSR or the caller, but Harold is a source for this story??? I know that KSR reporting is not mistake free but at some point KSR will make itself useless.

    Uh yeah, writing a story based on a KSR caller but my god these errors:

    “The Marshals would Harmon’s third school”
    Did you mean “would *be* Harmon’s third school”?

    “…if a player has circumstances that they control like their parents moving for work.”
    Did you mean “has circumstances that they *can’t* control”?

    Proof.
    Read.

    Well if Harold thinks he should play, then by all means make him eligible

    I personally don’t understand how someone can know the result of the appeal but not have any knowledge of why it was ruled that way . It doesn’t make any sense of his dad works in the area
