Zion Harmon may have transferred around high schools quite a bit, but he seems very willing to stay in-state for college.
Harmon, who attends Marshall County High School (Benton, Kentucky) announced his top seven schools in a tweet Thursday. Four of the colleges he named are in Kentucky.
The Chosen 25 point guard listed Kentucky, Louisville, Murray State and Western Kentucky in addition to Kansas, LSU and Seton Hall.
Some of those schools are typical for players of such caliber as Harmon. Murray State was surprising, but its recruiting profile is understandably rising after Ja Morant electrified the nation and was selected No. 2 in the 2019 NBA Draft. Western Kentucky, which hasn’t made the NCAA tournament in seven years, was a surprising inclusion, though it did enroll two five-star players in the last three years.

According to Spun, Harmon has been on unofficial visits to Kansas, Kentucky, and Louisville.
Harmon, who just started his junior year at Marshall County, has moved around schools frequently.
He grew up in Maryland, and attended Antioch Lighthouse Christian (Nashville, Tennessee) as a seventh-grader, Bowling Green (Kentucky) in eighth and Adair County (Columbia, Kentucky) as a ninth grader, according to the Courier-Journal.
Harmon averaged 32.7 points per game at Adair County.
Last year, he transferred to Marshall County but was ruled ineligible so he played basketball for part of the Bella Vista Prep (Scottsdale, Arizona) season.
Wherever he’s been, though, he’s been a star.
Harmon is ranked as the No. 20 player and No. 6 point guard in the 2021 Chosen 25 rankings.
He has two years left to play at the high school ranks before he starts college.
Where will that be?
