Marshall County sophomore Zion Harmon is the only Kentucky prep player that has been involved in USA Basketball where he has played against UK signee Tyrese Maxey and UK commit Kahlil Whitney.
“I have seen Maxey play a lot. He is one of the best combo guards I have ever seen, especially in that 2019 class. Really explosive. He plays with rhythm and flow. He will be a good fit for Kentucky,” Harmon, one of the top-ranked point guards in the 2021 recruiting class, said.
Harmon has played with and against Whitney, who will sign with UK in April.
“He is good. First time I saw him play was in Dallas and he went off and hit like four 3’s in a row, couple of dunks. He is real athletic, can shoot it and he is a hard worker,” Harmon said.
Can Whitney really make a whole gym stop and watch when he gets on a roll?
“Yes he can. He’s 6-5 or 6-6 and can do about anything. When he gets going, everybody watches,” Harmon said.
Maxey will play three games in Marshall County Dec. 28-29 in the Marshall County Holiday Classic.
