Harmon, a 5-foot-9 star ranked by ESPN.com as the nation’s top point guard in the Class of 2021, was ruled by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association to be ineligible to play this season at Marshall County after transferring last summer from Adair County.
Harmon will be eligible to play at Marshall County on March 5, marking a year since his last action at Adair County. But Marshall County’s season could be over by then, as postseason play begins in Kentucky on Feb. 18.
Mike Harmon said that his son wants to play the 2019-20 season at Marshall County and that playing for Bella Vista the next few weeks will not affect this eligibility with the KHSAA.
Mike Harmon, Zion Harmon’s father, confirmed Thursday that his son has joined the Bella Vista College Prep basketball program in Scottsdale, Arizona. Harmon will play for Bella Vista on Friday when it faces Life Christian of Chester, Virginia, at Marshall County.
“This is the best viable option for Zion right now,” Mike Harmon said. “He has a big summer ahead of him, and he can’t keep sitting and sitting.”
Harmon will remain enrolled as a student at Marshall County and play for Bella Vista on the weekends, Mike Harmon said. Bella Vista’s upcoming schedule includes several games in Kentucky and surrounding states as part of the Grind Session, which is a winter circuit of elite high school basketball events.
