Harvey hopes to join Panthers

The University of Pittsburgh has recruited a stellar class thus far. The Panthers may end up adding yet another former four-star player in the near future. Friday night, Scout.com traveled to Penn Hills high school to see a highly anticipated contest between Penn Hills and Pittsburgh Central Catholic high schools. We managed to speak with Penn Hills graduate David Harvey, and find out a little about his future plans.

David Harvey, 6-foot and 185 pounds, is currently rehabilitating from surgery he had done to repair a torn rotator cuff. According to the former Scout.com four-star prospect he is also getting his academics in order.

"I'm taking night classes at Keystone Oaks right now," Harvey said. "I'm probably going to end up playing at Pitt, hopefully."

Harvey was close to heading to New Berlin, N.Y. to enroll at the Milford Academy prep school, but his injury prevented that. Now, Harvey will work to fulfill his high school graduation requirements.

"If everything works out the way I hope, I'll be playing for Pitt, maybe in January," he said.

We have all heard many David Harvey stories in the past, he was rumored to be heading to Kiski Prep and then to Penn State, he was supposedly destined for Morgantown to join former teammate Ed Collington.

After speaking with Harvey on Friday night, you could tell he is as focused right now as he has ever been. He seem's bound and determined to play major college football. We will continue to follow this story as it develops and see if Harvey can get his academic requirements finished and enroll in school. No one has ever doubted Harvey as an athlete, he is arguably one of the most talented players to come out of the WPIAL ranks in recent memory.
