Penn State Still in the Mix

A year ago, Penn Hills HS wide receiver <b>David Harvey</b> was the main target for now Penn State freshman quarterback Anthony Morelli. Is there a chance the gifted Harvey could join Morelli at Penn State?

Name: David Harvey
Position: WR
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 175 pounds
Hometown/School: Pittsburgh, PA (Penn Hills SHS)

Penn State needs wide receivers, so obviously the top pass catching threat in the state of Pennsylvania should be a topic of interest. With the immediate need for a talent infusion, it's highly likely a freshman could conceivably start from day one. This has piqued the interest of one of the countries best wide receivers.

Of course when his former high school quarterback will be the logical choice to be throwing passes to him over the bulk of his career, or his former wide receiver counter-part is a walk-on at Penn State one would tend to believe the Nittany Lions hold a slight advantage. For obvious reasons Pittsburgh (Pa.) four-star wide receiver David Harvey is interested in Penn State, interested enough to tell me something very interesting this evening.

"I'll most likely go to Penn State or West Virginia," said Harvey "Georgia has been looking at me so I would definitely be interested, and I still like Pittsburgh a little bit."

Harvey is close to setting up some official visits in the near future logical targets include Penn State, West Virginia, and Georgia. Harvey only needs to figure out how to take them while basketball is in full gear. Penn Hills won a PIAA State Championship in Class AAAA last season, Harvey is the point guard on the team and is its leader.

"We're trying to defend that title, no doubt."

Harvey finished his senior season with 35 receptions, for 590 yards, and 9 touchdowns. On defense he had three interceptions, and he ran one punt return back for a score.

"We've had the talent to win states in football the last two seasons," said Harvey "I don't want to knock my coach, but look at last year we had two D-I receivers, and one of the top QB's in the country and we hardly threw the ball.

Harvey was recently named 1st Team All-WPIAL Quad East, and as well as being selected to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Fabulous 22.

Harvey has thought about when he will make a decision, and right now he is planning on the middle of Basketball season.

"Probably the middle of January or so."

However, it turns out will depend on academics. David has a 2.8 GPA and will take his SATS at the beginning of December for the first time. It appears right now as if Penn State may be the team to beat.
