CHICAGO -- After a strong performance at Peach Jam with Team Takeover, five-star Class of 2017 wing D.J. Harvey is hearing from plenty of programs. N.C. State has been firmly in the mix for the Maryland native and the 6-foot-6 scorer noted that the Wolfpack are still heavily involved.

After a strong performance at Peach Jam with Team Takeover, five-star Class of 2017 wing D.J. Harvey is hearing from plenty of programs. N.C. State has been firmly in the mix for the Maryland native and the 6-foot-6 scorer noted that the Wolfpack are still heavily involved.

Harvey rattled off offers from N.C. State, Arizona, Cal, Memphis, Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Duke, Kentucky and UCLA have also recently been involved in Harvey's recruitment.

N.C. State coaches have stayed in constant communication with the 2017 star during the recent recruiting process.

"They're always in contact with me. They were one of my first offers and I'm a big fan of their basketball," Harvey said of N.C. State.

The connections with Harvey, a product of DeMatha and Team Takeover, runs strong with the Wolfpack program as they already have familiar faces on the roster and the target list.

"Right now they're going after Christian Matthews on my Takeover team pretty hard. They have BeeJay Anya, a guy from DeMatha," Harvey noted.

Still early in the recruiting process, Harvey is going to try to take some unofficials to see some west coast programs later this summer.

"I will be visiting Arizona again after adidas Nations in LA and I'll be visiting UCLA as well," Harvey said.

During the month of July, Harvey has been playing very well, averaging double-figure points on over 50 percent shooting at Peach Jam before starting the Nike Global Challenge with 10 points and six rebounds as his USA East team defeated China.

Over 23 games in the Nike EYBL with Team Takeover this spring and summer, Harvey averaged 12.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Harvey shot 48 percent from the field, 70 percent from the free-throw line and 43 percent from 3-point range.
