Former Oregon guard De’Vion Harmon headed to Texas Tech

·1 min read

The Oregon Ducks lost their second key player in as many days with the news that guard De’Vion Harmon is headed to Lubbock to join the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

The news comes only two days after Harmon reportedly entered the NCAA’s transfer portal, and one day after former big man Franck Kepnang committed to the University of Washington.

Harmon began his collegiate career at Oklahoma but joined Dana Altman’s team last year. He averaged 10.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.3 steals per game for the Ducks, serving as a secondary ball-handler to Will Richardson and a key scoring option.

Now he joins a very good Texas Tech team led by Mark Adams – a team that specializes in suffocating defense and grind-it-out style gameplay.

Oregon already filled one hole in the backcourt by adding transfer guard Keeshawn Barthelemy from Colorado, and they are getting Rivaldo Soares back for another year as well as incoming freshman guard Dior Johnson.

Still, losing Harmon is a tough pill for Oregon fans, and the very sudden departure will certainly raise some eyebrows amongst the Eugene faithful.
