Guyer Basketball Star De-Vion Harmon Commits to Oklahoma

Guyer junior De’Vion Harmon still has all of this basketball season and the next before he heads
off to the college ranks. But he already knows where he’s going, and he didn’t shy away from announcing it to the nation earlier this month.

Harmon, the 42nd overall prospect in the Class of 2019 according to 247Sports, announced his verbal commitment to Oklahoma on Nov. 3 in front of a packed gym at Guyer High School. Harmon had previously narrowed his list of college choices to five, including the Sooners, Texas, Baylor, Marquette, and
Oklahoma State.

“I’m happy all of this is behind me,” Harmon told the Denton Record-Chronicle. “I’m excited — I really am. I get to step on the court with my brothers here at Guyer and make a run toward a state championship. The goal is to be playing that weekend right before spring break in March. It’s a process. With hard work and dedication, we can do that.”

Harmon averaged 18.7 points, 4.8 assists, and 4.2 rebounds last year. This summer, he led the U.S. U16 Men’s National Team to a gold medal at the FIBA America’s U16 Championship in Formosa, Argentina. Harmon scored 13 points in a 111-60 win over Canada in the finals.

To get there, Harmon was one of 32 top prospects – two from the Dallas-Fort Worth area – invited to a camp at the US. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was at that camp that coaches and officials whittled down the group to a final 12-man roster that would represent the USA as it competed against teams from around the country.

Harmon’s latest commitment is non-binding. The earliest he’d be able to sign a national letter of intent is in the fall of 2018. But Harmon said the stability of the program and head coach Lon Kruger made this an easy decision.
