ESPN No. 57 ranked high school junior De’Vion Harmon has committed to Oklahoma.
The 6-0 point guard averaged 18.7 points, 4.8 assists, and 1.2 steals last season for John H. Guyer HS (Denton, TX), leading the team to a 25-6 record and the Class 6A playoffs.
Harmon was a member of the U16 USA national team that won the gold medal at the 2017 FIBA Americas Championship this summer.
He also played with RM5 Elite in the Nike EYBL this spring with teammate No. 17 Jr Tyrese Maxey.
“Their word for me is to come in be the floor general, bring that point guard leadership, toughness and that relentless drive to win,” Harmon told scout of Oklahoma. “I think I fit in really well. It’s really a read and react style. When I’m just hooping [like that] it’s a lot of fun.”
Scout’s Tim Watkins loves Harmon’s game.
“A lefty point guard, Harmon has tremendous length (6-foot-6 measure wingspan and a standing reach of over 8-feet) and uses it to excel on the defensive side of the court,” wrote Watkins. “A tough player, Harmon uses his body well on both sides of the court, and is a good rebounder for his size.”
The Sooners beat out Texas, Baylor, Oklahoma State, and Marquette to land Harmon.
At Oklahoma, Harmon will join fellow 2018 recruit No. 20 SG Jamal Bieniemy.
