Palmyra's Harmon Strong at Rutgers 7v7 Camp

Palmyra (N.J.) 2016 wide receiver Kelvin Harmon was an impact player at last week's Rutgers 7-on-7 passing camp. Harmon, who holds a Rutgers offer, has more visits to take this summer before focusing on his junior season in South Jersey.

Rutgers saw something early in Palmyra (N.J.) 2016 receiver Kelvin Harmon, and 93 other 7-on-7 teams experienced it last week with his strong performance.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect helped lead South Jersey's Next Level Greats to a second-place finish at the event.

"I'm all about the competition, and we're having a good time as a team," Harmon said. "It's just fun being at Rutgers playing against everyone."

Harmon received his first verbal offer from Rutgers after impressing during the spring evaluation period.

"I talked to them some, but I was trying to stay focused on winning [at the camp]," Harmon said. "I talked with [defensive backs coach Darrell] Wilson a little and he was just saying to keep working hard and getting better."

The three-star receiver spent much of the spring traveling for competitions with his 7-on-7 team led by coach Marcus Hammond.

"This spring has been a great, humbling experience," Harmon said. "I'm fortunate to be able to go out and travel, see good players, get coached and see some schools."

Harmon works out with many 2015 prospects, including wide receiver Irvin Charles, Pittsburgh quarterback commit Alex Hornibrook and UCF linebacker commit Neal Nelson.

Charles experienced a similar offseason heading into his junior year, and has plenty of advice for Harmon.

"He's telling me about how hard I need to keep working," Harmon said. "Stay humble, and take everything in one step at a time. … I plan to bring heart, and I'm trying to play for championships."

Harmon visited Florida during the IMG 7-on-7 championships, and plans to visit Temple and Penn State this summer.

"We only got to go in the Swamp for a little bit," Harmon said. "It was a really great visit with their history. I got to try on a jersey. It was cool."
