Harmon Hearing From Powlus and ND

Duron Harmon knew Scout.com's new rankings were coming out, and he wanted to see where fellow Delaware standout Justin Brown was slotted. Harmon was happy to see his boy was tabbed as a four-star recruit.

"I knew my boy Justin Brown was going to be on there," Duron Harmon said. "I was like, I'll just look at mine and see where they have me."

The 6-foot, 190-pound Harmon navigated over to his own profile page.

"I was very surprised."

Harmon saw four stars which now matches the number of scholarship offers he has. Stanford, Rutgers, Pittsburgh and most recently Maryland, have extended the jack-of-all-trades player a full-ride.

"When I go to camps, people are like where are you from," Harmon began. "I'll be like Deleware. They'll be like when did Delaware start producing athletes? But it's good. We have two players ranked in the top 300, so it shows Delaware does produce some talent, you just have to come and look."

Sounds like Harmon is right, and other major college programs are for sure coming to look. Besides the schools that have offered, Harmon said he is hearing from N.C. State, Virginia, South Carolina, Temple, Iowa and Notre Dame.

Harmon sent his tape to Notre Dame awhile back, and keeps in touch with assistant coach Ron Powlus at least once every other week.

"They finally got a chance to watch my film and coach Powlus said they like me," Harmon said.

As a junior at Caeser Rodney High in Camden-Wyoming, Harmon carried the football 91 times for 701 yards and 12 touchdowns, while adding 15 catches for 275 yards as well. On defense, he used his 4.5 speed in the 40-yard dash to rack up 43 tackles, with two interceptions, eight passes broken up and five forced fumbles.

"Coach Powlus said they're going to further evaluate me some more, and I think you're one heck of a player," Harmon continued. "I think you're going to be real good when you get to the next level. I'm going to give your tape to the rest of the staff to let them watch it, and just hold on and I'll let you know what's going on.

"He said they might need me to come up for camp, but he isn't sure. But that's good things to hear.

Harmon is expecting Notre Dame to come by his school sometime during the spring.

Harmon said every program is recruiting him as an athlete. He added that he has no position preference, just whatever gets him on the field first. He'd like to make a college decision before his senior season begins.

"I don't have any favorites right now," Harmon said. He has checked out the campuses at Virginia, Maryland, Rutgers and Connecticut. "Everyone is equal, but getting an offer from Notre Dame would be really exciting because they have a great winning tradition. It's a good academic school. They're basically everything you could want in a school."

Harmon has a 92 percent grade average.
