Ohio Guard Gaining Interest

Toledo Central Catholic (OH) is coming off of a State Championship title. FOX Sports NEXT caught up with one of their rising stars Zach Harmon to get the latest on his recruitment.

6-foot-4, 270 pound junior Zach Harmon had a "tremendous" year.

"Not only did we win the Division II State Championship, but I played well. I played a lot more confidently this year which was great."

His confidence on the field is catching the attention from several schools across the Midwest.

"I've been hearing from Buffalo, Cincinnati Toledo and Indiana. I also took visits to Northwestern and Ohio State."

The guard/center says there are several things he likes about the schools interested in him.

"Toledo has a really young coaching staff and I just love their style of coaching. Cincinnati's main focus was on academics for their athletes. They offered a lot of support for them. I'm really excited that I'm getting interest from Ohio State. They have a great atmosphere and it would be a dream to play there. I talk to Buffalo once a week and they have a real family atmosphere."

Don't look for a decision anytime soon from the junior, he plans on taking his time with the process.

"I'll probably commit after my senior season. I want to take as much time as I can and make a well-thought out decision. It's a really important decision."

Stay with FOX Sports NEXT for the latest on Harmon and the rest of the Class of 2014.
