The recruiting wheels are always turning, and that came true again on Tuesday morning when Class of 2019 top 50 prospect De’Vion Harmon announced his final five schools.
Harmon is a 6-foot tall, 192 pound point guard from Denton, which is on the far northwest side of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, where he attends Guyer High School. 247 Sports ranks Harmon at #42 in the country in their Composite setup, and #53 in their internal rankings. The Composite system has Harmon as the fifth best point guard in the Class of 2019 and the fourth best prospect in the state of Texas.
It’s kind of fascinating to see Marquette in this group of five. It’s a three and a half hour drive north to Stillwater, and you have to drive through Norman to get there. Meanwhile, Austin is about four hours south of Denton, and you have to literally drive past Baylor’s campus in Waco to get there. Those are four easy jaunts in a car from Harmon’s house....... and also Milwaukee. It’s somewhat impressive to see the impact that Steve Wojciechowski and his staff have made on Harmon to get him to consider a school so far outside the radius of the other four schools in his final grouping.
Here’s a highlight package for Harmon. It’s a three minute long video that was posted in April of this year, so I presume “2016 Season” means “2016-17 Season.”
For the time being, Marquette projects to have two available scholarship spots for the Class of 2019. Here’s the scholarship chart at the moment:
