ATH Nick Harvey
HT: 5-10

School: Richmond (TX) Travis
Committed to Texas A&M

Harvey Stats vs. Seven Lakes (unofficially): Defense – 2 tackles, 3 pass break ups; Offense – 3-of-8 for 46 yards passing, 5 receptions for 64 yards, TD

Strengths: His one-on-one coverage skills were outstanding. He has great feet and fluid hips, which helped him to change directions with ease. When the ball is in the air, his timing on playing the ball is on par with the top secondary players in the country. 

Big Play(s): Speaking of coverage skills, Harvey was on an island on a third-and-long. The receiver he was covering ran a post, a route that is tough for most to cover. Harvey got into his backpedal quickly with inside leverage, made his break and threw his left hand up for the pass break up. 

Misses: He is athletic and can do many things for his team, but at quarterback he struggled in this game. Of course, it is understood that in college he will likely be on defense in the secondary. 

Overall: His versatility is quite impressive as he lined up at quarterback, receiver, cornerback and returned punts. And for the most part, he was solid overall in his contributions. He had a great catch in the red zone to keep a drive alive, plenty of plays on defense and a scramble or two as a signal caller as well. Basically, he could play any skilled position and excel, but as a defensive back he is most impressive.
