Beast of the East: Rutgers Next for Harmon

PITMAN, N.J. – Palmyra (N.J.) 2016 receiver Kelvin Harmon has an unofficial visit to Rutgers set following his strong performance at Friday night’s Beast of the East event. Harmon spoke with Scout about a recent visit from the Rutgers staff, and his upcoming visit as the Scarlet Knights take on Michigan in basketball.

Rutgers was the first school in the picture for 2016 Palmyra (N.J.) receiver Kelvin Harmon, and hosts him on an unofficial visit tomorrow evening.

Harmon set the visit last week after four coaches visited him at school, and will take in the basketball game against Michigan alongside the staff.

“I’ve always felt love from them,” Harmon said. “It meant a lot that so many of them came down to see me. I’m interested to go up and see them [tomorrow].”

Wide receivers coach Ben McDaniels made the trip shortly before he went to New England to cheer on his brother in the AFC Championship Game.

Running backs coach Norries Wilson, tight ends coach Anthony Campanile and offensive line coach Mitch Browning joined McDaniels Friday in Palmyra.

“Their offensive coaching staff came in [Friday afternoon],” Harmon said. “We were just talking a little bit about recruiting and about school. It was cool to see so many of them come by.”

Rutgers was the only school in to see Harmon in 2015 so far, but Temple, Boston College, South Carolina and Penn State are all in contact.

Harmon visited Old Dominion and South Carolina last year, as well as Rutgers.

“South Carolina was a great visit,” Harmon said. “They had a great game atmosphere. I loved it.”

Harmon recently starred in the Beast of the East event in South Jersey, where he took home Scout’s top performer.

“I feel like I’ve improved a lot, especially in working at events like these,” Harmon said. “I had a good season with my team. I built chemistry with my quarterback, and that’s important.”
