If Devin Askew reclassifies could that lead to UK offer for Zion Harmon?

Kentucky coach John Calipari has seemed to be everywhere recruiting in recent weeks — except Marshall County.

That’s where junior point guard Zion Harmon, a top 35 player in the 2021 recruiting class, plays. He has Kentucky among his final seven schools despite no recent visits from the UK staff or not having a Kentucky scholarship offer.

Considering the quality of offers Harmon does have, I wondered what might be the reason that he has no Kentucky offer so I asked Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers.com, a terrific basketball recruiting analyst.

“Well, seems like he’d fit in at UK, it’s just a matter if Cal believes he’s a fit and obviously in that class (Devin) Askew is a priority right now, but if he reclassifies (to 2020) I think Harmon could get the call,” Weingarten said.

Askew will make his college choice next month. He’s said he won’t reclassify, but that can always change.

“He’s talented, a very crafty guard and has major upside,” Weingarten said. “But the questions surrounding his eligibility and all of that is you know, not concerning, but questions would be asked.”
