Harmon’s decision to declare for the NBA Draft comes as no surprise, as he has all the makings of a great NBA player in the future. His jump shots are fluid, and the guy appears more assured with the ball in his hands.

On Friday, in his tweet, the guard thanked all of his supporters—fans, family members, and teammates—for helping him succeed in his career and demonstrating his worth. 

“To the best fans. Thank you for embracing me the way that you did. Thank you for all the love and loyalty you’ve shown to my teammates and I, D Harmon tweeted. Even through our darkest moments, you always came through, and for that, I will forever love you guys.”

“Thank you to my amazing family for all their true love and support along my journey. My Brothers, it was an honor to wear the Scarlet & Black and take the floor with y’all every single night. My Lord and Savior, Thank you for loving and guiding me. Thank you for the journey and the path you have placed me on. I trust your plan and I am excited to see what’s next.”

After that, the 23-year-old officially declared his college basketball career over and announced himself as a prospect for the 2023 NBA Draft.

“With that being said, I’m declaring for the 2023 NBA Draft and immersing myself in the pursuit of a pro basketball career.”

Harmon is regarded as one of the best guards in the college game. After playing for Oklahoma for the first two seasons of his career in 2019–20, Harmon moved to the Pacific Northwest. His talent, work ethic, and leadership have made him a popular figure on the Texas Tech campus, and everyone is eagerly waiting to see his final destination and performance in the upcoming NBA season.
