In case you’ve been living under a rock, there are some pretty talented cats in the 2019 class at Guyer.

We saw it in two different sports this past school year. There was obviously running back Noah Cain on the gridiron, and he was joined by classmate De’Vion Harmon, who was a starting wide receiver for the Wildcats. The pair were the first freshmen Guyer coach John Walsh ever had suited up to start a season. And they both were integral in Guyer’s run to the regional final.

Then, we saw it on the hardwood with Harmon and fellow freshman Jalen Wilson, as they led Guyer to a 30-win season and a second-round playoff appearance before falling to powerhouse South Grand Prairie, and it was the two freshmen who often led the way.

Over the weekend, they made a splash on the recruiting scene when they picked up offers on the same night from the Oklahoma Sooners. Not bad for a first offer in the bag for Wilson and a second for Harmon after UT-Arlington made the initial one weeks ago. Harmon has also picked up serious interest from LSU.

Harmon, a Jack-of-all-trades point guard, averaged 13.3 points, 4.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game last season for the Wildcats. He announced earlier this summer his decision to give up football and focus exclusively on basketball. Wilson, a 6-5 guard/forward, averaged 14.7 points with a team-high 6.7 rebounds and three assists.

To think, the Wildcats have those two for three more seasons plus a crop of more young studs coming in. The move to the new District 6-6A with the big Plano ISD schools and Allen is going to be a really big challenge on the basketball court, but Guyer is shaping up to be able to compete for a district title.
