Wildcats offer Harmon
After a solid all-around season last year on both sides of the ball, Tilghman receiver J.D. Harmon picked up his first offer last week. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder got his offer from the Kentucky Wildcats. Harmon heard from Kentucky Head Coach Joker Phillips last week, while Phillips was at the NFL Draft with junior receiver Randall Cobb. Getting that offer at that time was very impressive to Harmon. "I was really excited. I was overwhelmed," said Harmon. "What excited me the most was that he called me during the NFL Draft. It shows me that I mean a lot to him for him to call me while he was there on business, with Cobb," Harmon said. While the offer was a big deal to Harmon, he's not ready to settle down and take the Wildcat offer. There are still other schools showing interest. "I'm going to wait it out for a while and keep my options open. I've heard from Cincinnati and LSU recently. We've been in contact through emails," he said. Also a Sun Belt program will be coming to Paducah this weekend to check in with Harmon. "I got a call from the Arkansas State coaches. They are coming to meet with me on Friday," he said. Offensive Line Coach Darren Hiller will come by to visit Harmon. Harmon was impressed with what he knew of the Arkansas State program. "I think they are a really good program. A good friend of mine graduated from there," he said. "They are changing their offense to a fast pace type of offense like Oregon," he said. "I like that they throw the ball a lot. They are bringing in a new offense this year," he continued. Harmon plays football and basketball for Paducah and plans to play AAU ball this spring. He's also currently running track, but he's also working hard on his football skills. "After track practice every day, I catch 100 balls. I go through my route tree and make sure they are all good. I never take a day off," he finished.
