Harmon Talks Pitt Offer

Teams aren't sure where they want Camden-Wyoming, Del., native Duron Harmon to play if he commits to them, but he still is having no problems bringing in scholarship offers from quality programs. Stanford, Rutgers and most recently, Pittsburgh have already offered and with a family tie to the Panthers they could have the upper hand in his recruiting.

Duron Harmon could play running back at the collegiate level, but he will probably end up in the defensive backfield as a cornerback or safety in 2009. The 6-foot, 190-pound athlete from Caesar Rodney High School picked up an offer from Pittsburgh about a week ago and talked tonight about his ties to the university.

"Pittsburgh offered me last week," Harmon said. "Coach Bryan Bossard and my dad are very good friends, so he told my dad I had an offer and then put me on the phone with him. One of the things my family and I like a lot about Pittsburgh is that Coach Bossard knows us well and will look out for me like family, so there is a level of comfort there."

"I know they are a young team with a lot of young talent and just had a great recruiting class this year," Harmon added. "They've told me that they like me as an athlete and would just get me on campus, see where I fit in best and then put me there. I'm fine playing any position they want me to. I'll be going to Pittsburgh to visit next weekend because I have an AAU basketball tournament there. Obviously I'll stop by and meet the staff and everything after that."

Harmon also recently spoke with Coach Bill Kirelawich at West Virginia who told him that they would be offering him a scholarship if he came to camp this summer and ran the 40-yard dash well.
