A new favorite surfaces

Getting an interview with Penn Hills (PA) wide receiver David Harvey (6-1,175, 4.40) is about as easy a catching a greased pig. TheInsiders.com caught up to the elusive 4-star prospect Sunday evening to get an update on his status.

Harvey has been working out with some of his Penn Hills teammates. The Indians are considered by many as one of the top Class AAAA teams in the state. Offensively, they must replace QB Anthony Morelli, but most of the key components are back from last year's team. Harvey took a special interest in last weekend's Big 33 game as Morelli, a Penn State recruit and his former signal caller, almost led the Pennsylvania squad to a victory.

"It was nice to see him actually get to throw the ball. He looked good," said Harvey.

David has offers from Michigan, Penn State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Akron, and Connecticut. The 1st team all-conference (WPIAL quad east) selection hauled in 46 passes for 797 yards and 7 touchdowns last fall.

One team has taken the lead, as of late, for his services.

"Right now, I'd say my favorite is West Virginia, followed by Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan State, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Pittsburgh."

Harvey will start scheduling his official visits towards the start of the regular season. David knows two schools that will most likely get official visits for sure.

"I'm definitely planning on taking an official to West Virginia and probably Ohio State."

David participated with the rest of his Penn Hills teammates in the 40-team University of Pittsburgh team passing camp. He also attended a one-day camp at West Virginia for rising seniors. The Insiders.com currently rates Harvey as the 18th best wide receiver in its national rankings.
