Zion Harmon plans to play basketball for Marshall County for the next two years. The highly regarded point guard was ruled ineligible last season after transferring from Adair County where he led the state in scoring in 2017-18.
Harmon kept attending classes at Marshall County High School while playing on the weekends for a private school in Arizona, Bella Vista Prep. He got permission from the KHSAA to play for Bella Vista without it affecting his eligibility at Marshall County. And he wound up leading Bella Vista to the Grind Session World's Championship which was played at MCHS.
“We will definitely bring a state title to Marshall County,” Mike Harmon, Zion’s father told syndicated columnist Larry Vaught. “I still want him to have chance to go after scoring records and win Mr. Basketball in Kentucky as a senior. Want him to have a chance to be a McDonald’s All-American. All God wants him to have, we want him to have. It’s not all about basketball, but he works and has goals like winning a state title, being Mr. Basketball.”
