This Season

Harmon came to Norman with the kind of versatility that could see him play almost anywhere in the secondary. It’s hard to pin down where he’s most likely to appear, as he has worked in several spots over the offseason. In his second season on campus, Harmon will battle for consistent playing time in the secondary and work toward a bigger role in the future.
