We spoke with Harden last night and he told us four schools are expressing interest in him at this time.
Harden has already taken an official visit to Santa Barbara. He told us he'll schedule more visits after his season ends.
"We just started the season and it is kind of tough to take trips now," said Harden.
We asked Harden for his feelings on playing at a mid major program, where he might play earlier, as opposed to a high major, where he might have to wait for playing time.
"I want to play at the best place," said Harden. "I want to push myself -- I'm always up for a challenge."
