In catching up with Nebraska's commitments, we turn our attention to David Harvey, a tight end prospect out of Pomfret, Maryland. David comments on his senior season, Nebraska's fortunes and even about when he plans to come and visit the Cornhusker state. Plus, which Nebraska coach has been keeping in contact with Harvey?
first four commitments, David Harvey may not have the "hype" of some of NU's
other commitments, but he has the heart and the head on his shoulders to be a
star just the same. After
committing to Nebraska in July, it was all about his senior
season, so how did it turn out? "We
ended up 8-3, lost in the first round.
I think I did pretty good, helped the team out a lot, filled in where
they were missing last year. I
think as a player I got a lot better, it made me better mentally and made me
stronger," he said.
of the talk of decommits, we didn't want David to feel like he was being left
out, so we asked just how firm his commitment to the Cornhuskers was. "It's solid. Nebraska, I'll be there next fall," he
said. David had the opportunity to
catch a few of Nebraska's games and while things weren't as
rosy as many would've liked, he did see some things in the offensive system that
he liked when it was clicking.
"Yeah, it looked pretty fun and looked like they were having a good
time," he said. Overall, Harvey
thinks Nebraska did about as well as he
expected. "I think they did pretty
good, they worked with what they had and I think they did okay," said Harvey.
Nebraska's Phil Elmassian has been
keeping in close contact with Harvey in the meantime. "I talked to him today. I'm going on my visit this weekend, so
we talked about that and how my season went," he said. Coach Elmassian was actually in the
today chatting with the family. As
far as what David wants to accomplish in the off-season, he just wants to become
a better athlete. "I want to get a
lot stronger, get faster, and get my hands where they need to be for the college
game. Just do anything I can to
make myself a better player," he said.
