Nearly a month ago, 2021 three-star cornerback Damond Harmon made the trek from Highland Springs, Virginia to Columbus, Ohio and walked away more than impressed with his time on Ohio State’s campus when the Buckeyes took on Michigan State.
“The visit was amazing, I loved it. The game was crazy like and it gets loud in that stadium and the defense is great. I also like how much love the players get from the fans it’s just crazy.” Harmon told Land-Grant Holy Land.
Fast forward a few weeks and the 6-foot-1, 178 pound defensive back now holds a chance to run out onto the turf of Ohio Stadium in a Scarlet and Gray uniform.
“Coach Hafley called me and told me they had been watching and breaking down my film and that they loved it. Then he said that they were going to offer me a scholarship,” Harmon said.
Adding the Ohio State scholarship alongside opportunities to attend programs such as Maryland, Michigan, and Virginia Tech, Harmon is excited, but isn’t letting the chance to line up for a major National Championship contender get to his head.
“It feels great to hold an offer from such a great school, but I am still open to anything. I will also not let this offer change who I am.”
Watching his recruitment pick up momentum almost daily, Harmon doesn’t have a short list at the moment. Letting things fall into place, he does have some plans for when he finally decides to shut things down for good.
“My plan is to commit to a school sometime in October next year, but I am looking for the best education and a family in a school.” Harmon said.
With many programs keeping a close eye on Harmon, his rankings could skyrocket in the coming months. Currently considered a three-star prospect, the Highland Springs soon-to-be senior is sitting as the No. 77 cornerback, and No. 905 overall prospect in the 2021 class, per the 247Sports Composite.
