Zion Harmon cuts list to seven, includes Kentucky

2021 four-star guard and Marshall County star Zion Harmon cut his list to seven last night, and the Kentucky Wildcats made the cut.

The 5-foot-10 point guard included Kansas, Louisville, Kentucky, Seton Hall, Murray State, WKU, and LSU on the list.

“Thank you to all of the schools who took their time out to recruit me,” Harmon wrote on Twitter.

Originally from Bethesda, MD, Harmon has bounced around from Lighthouse Christian School in Antioch, TN in seventh grade, Bowling Green (KY) for eighth grade, Adair County for his freshman season, and then Marshall County for his sophomore year, where he was ruled ineligible and forced to sit out his entire sophomore season. Harmon is enrolled at Marshall County again this year and is eligible to play as a junior this season.

Back at the NBPA Top 100 Camp in June, Harmon told KSR that he hadn’t heard from the Kentucky coaching staff, but was hoping to get in contact and ultimately receive an offer.

“Kentucky hasn’t reached out yet, but I hope to hear something from them soon,” he said. “Definitely looking forward to getting an offer from Kentucky.”

Sources tell KSR that Harmon is both exploring a reclassification to 2020 and the opportunity to play overseas before eventually putting his name in the 2021 NBA Draft. If he does stay in the states to play college, Kansas, UofL, and LSU are seen as the top options for ESPN’s No. 25 prospect in the class of 2021.

    The kid definitely has talent, but all the bouncing around from school to school has me worried about eligibility. Not saying he does, but it makes it look like he goes to the highest bidder.

    Hmm if there’s anything suspicious with eligibility Cal won’t even offer. He’s good but not elite. At 5’10” he doesn’t really fit the mold unless he’s got heart duh as Ulis…and that’s a bold statement

    Pass. Also,this is one of those times I wish at least one high profile coach would publicly call BS and say they are not recruiting him.

    Lots of baggage with Zion. Let’s just say daddy has been for sale for a while. UK won’t touch him.

      Neither one of you know if him or his dad had ever took anything. Pretty cool a bunch of adults would try to ruin a kid and make up rumors!! Both of you should be ashamed of yourself. That goes for anyone saying anything about this kid. Real nice!!
