SCOUT.com – We're calling to confirm your "commit" to Idaho. Is that true?
HARMON – That is true.
SCOUT.com – What was the driving force behind your commitment?
HARMON – How close they are to my house, because I'm really close to my family and I want mom to be able to come see my games. That's why I didn't go to Air Force (offer). I wanted to be able to go home. And also, decisions in majors. I want to do criminal justice, and plus I'm in army ROTC.
SCOUT.com – Besides Air Force, were you looking at other schools?
HARMON - Not really, but I had calls from Eastern and Southern Oregon.
SCOUT.com – How did Idaho get you on their radar?
HARMON – Well, they called me up and I went to a tryout, kinda like a camp training type thing, and afterwards they came by and offered me a scholarship.
SCOUT.com – So you've been to the University of Idaho?
HARMON – Yes.
SCOUT.com – How was it?
HARMON - It was good. I like the campus. I like all the majors they have to offer. I like the area, plus all my friends are going to Wazzu and Idaho. It kind of just fits.
SCOUT.com – You played other positions in high school. Did they just recruit you strictly as a kicker?
HARMON – Yeah, I played wide receiver, running back, and outside linebacker, but I only kicked when I was over there.
SCOUT.com – When is your official visit?
HARMON - It's actually this next weekend, but I've been over there three times. I have friends over there that are already on the team. Luke Hardwick is also a kicker on the team. He was my kicking partner at camp.
SCOUT.com – Will you redshirt?
HARMON - It depends on how well prepared I am for next year. As it looks right now, I'll probably know next year. They're returning a kicker, Mike Barrow. They're looking at me as more of a punter / kick-off guy.
