Bria Harmon is the daughter of a coach who has had her father coaching her in both club (FBC) and now in high school (Collins Hill). The family is already very familiar with a handful of Purdue players from the state of Georgia. Drey Mingo, as well as Antoinette Howard, both played for Bria's father Brian with club program FBC. Current Purdue players Miracle Gray and Dominique Oden were teammates of Bria Harmon. Harmon is a point guard most often described as in control. She possesses a quick release and can hit out beyond the perimeter. She runs the floor smoothly, can change directions quickly, and pushes the ball well. Her Collins Hill high school team is one of the favorites to with the GHSA state title this season.
As a sophomore, Harmon averaged 12 points, 3 assists, and 2.5 steals for a 25-5 team. No. 4 Collins Hill fell to No. 1 Norcross in the Georgia 7A state quarterfinals, 37-30. Both teams failed to shoot higher than 30-percent from the floor for the game.
She verbally committed to Purdue on 11/30/15 over very early interest from Auburn and Florida. She has expressed interest in studying engineering in college.

Scouting report by PASSTHABALL ..."Harmon has already oraled to Purdue. At this event, her play made the Boilers look like they will be getting a good player. She shot the three and made good decisions running her team. She still needs to fill out a bit more." (Suwanee Tournament of Champions, July 2016)
Scouting report by GThing Basketball ..."We all know how it is to be Coach by your parents, Harmon is Coached by her father on the High School level and not to long ago on the AAU circuit. I guess after those long drives home must have payed off because Bria seems to be calm cool and collective when she is on the floor, always under control and never rattle. Nice Stroke... Scorer.... Can drain the three with ease.... Quick release... Good forum.... Put on some muscle..." (Fall Finale, October 2016)
Scouting report by Lady Ballers Insider ..."Harmon had a great day leading her Young Guns team to a 3-0 record in pool play. Her ability to keep her poise under pressure made her standout. She is a lightning quick point guard with great ball handling skills and a high IQ. You could tell that she is a coach's kid." (USJN Midwest Showdown, May 2015)
