Harmon hearing from in-state rivals

With college scouts roaming the sidelines seemingly every Friday night during Noxubee County's games, junior fullback Earnest Harmon is hoping to take full advantage of his opportunity to impress them.

The 5-foot-10, 210-pounder is receiving early interest from a pair of in-state schools but is still waiting on his first scholarship offer.

"Right now I've just been waiting," Harmon said. "Everything has been going kind of slow. There are some letters coming in but they are coming in mighty slow. Right now I'm just getting letters from Mississippi State and Ole Miss."

Harmon understands that he is undersized at the moment to play fullback at the next level but will be adding a stringent workout program to his daily routine once basketball season ends for the Tigers.

"Right now I am kind of in between a fullback and a running back," Harmon said. "But I would like to put some pounds on and come back as a fullback. Most everybody is recruiting me as a fullback but a couple of them have told me that I've got to put on a couple of pounds over the summer."

Harmon has benefitted from the attention former teammates Patrick Patterson and Deontae Skinner drew this past season. Macon, Miss., will again be a hot ticket for college coaches next season as they pursue players like Harmon, Vincent Sanders and Gussie Lane.
