Harvey-Clemons, who has been in Louisville for several days, confirmed to Cardinal Authority on Friday night that he has "found a new home."
The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Harvey-Clemons said he would enroll at U of L in June. He will begin classes and workouts with the team and redshirt next season. He will be eligible to start the 2015 season and have two years of eligibility.
"I'm excited," he said. "I knew when the situation happened at Georgia where I wanted to go and when I got here it just felt right."
U of L defensive coordinator Todd Grantham recruited Harvey-Clemons to Georgia. He left after last season to take the job at U of L.
"Coach Grantham called me after everything happened and it all worked out," he said. "This is really the only place I looked at."
Harvey-Clemons was suspended for Georgia's opening game against Clemson and also the Gator Bowl last season for what Georgia reported as an undisclosed violation of team rules.
But when he was on the field, the former five-star prospect was a standout.
Harvey-Clemons had 66 tackles, an interception and a team-leading three fumble recoveries as a sophomore in 2013.
A product of Valdosta, Ga., Lowndes High School, Harvey-Clemons picked Georgia on signing day in 2012 over Miami, Florida and Florida State. He was ranked as the No. 36 prospect overall by Scout.com in the Class of 2012.
"I knew a couple of guys here and I liked it when I got here, so everything just kind of fell into place," he said. "It's a really good opportunity for me.
"I will have a year away (from playing) and be able to clear my mind and get adjusted to the surroundings. I'm excited."
Harvey-Clemons said his position coach in high school was former U of L player Terry Quinn.
