One of Southern California’s top power forwards in 2018 is Mehkel Harvey from Huntington Beach (Calif.) Ocean View.
The 6-foot-6, 165-pound power forward is a bit undersized, but his youthful appearance, young age and recent growth spurt – he’s grown a couple inches in the last year - suggest he could still get taller.
Harvey has a terrific feel as a rebounder and shot blocker, using his instincts, length and motor to consistently put up big numbers on the glass and as a rim protector.
“I’m a power forward who can play inside and out,” Harvey said. “Defense is where I’m best at. I’m working on my jumper.”
The sophomore hasn’t yet received any recruiting attention, but that will change in the coming weeks and months.
