With so many key players returning to the Rebels' team this season we asked Jordan to talk a little bit about his team's chances this year. "Yeah I'm really happy that we have a chance to make a name for ourselves this year. We hope to do a really good job and not let anyone down."
While many players relish their career high game in terms of scoring Harmon says another game for him is his most memorable. "It would have to be when we played Batesburg-Leesville. We were down by 25 points but I along with the help of my teammates helped turn things around and made it a real game. We came together and brought it to within 2 points. We ended up losing but the main thing is that we realized that great things can happen when we work together."
Jordan says he's been honing his skills this offseason but one particular area has been a key for him. "I've been working really hard on my outside shooting." While he's able to dominate most games inside he's been trying to add range to his jumper to draw defenders away from the basket. Currently though Harmon says his best strengths are, "making things happen and going to the basket."
At 6'8 and pounds Harmon will continue to grow and so will his stock. D1 programs have already been keeping close tabs on the Mid-Carolina star as evidence of his invitation to Tennessee's Elite Camp this past summer. Harmon already has an idea as to what factors will play a big role in his recruitment. "It has to be a all-around good college where they will help me with grades along with improving my basketball ability."
The 2010 prospect says he patterns his game after a few NBA superstars and a local product/AAU teammate. "I pattern my game after Lebron James, Michael Jordan, and Robbie Dreher of Southside High. I kinda mix the styles together to try and come up with a stronger game, so you will never know what I'm going to do next."
SCPrepNation.com will keep close tabs on Jordan Harmon as he embarks on his sophomore season with Mid-Carolina High School so stay tuned.
