Harmon Set for Rutgers Visit, Five Others

South Jersey standout Kelvin Harmon of Palmyra (N.J.) spoke with Scout about his upcoming winter and spring visits. The three-star receiver also offered his reaction to the offensive coordinator change at Rutgers, and where things stand with the in-state Scarlet Knights.

Palmyra (N.J.) 2016 receiver Kelvin Harmon begins a busy offseason of visits in March when he returns to Rutgers – the site of his first scholarship offer.

The talented three-star receiver also has junior day visits coming up to South Carolina, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Old Dominion and Florida during the spring.

“I’m looking forward to getting on these campuses and seeing their facilities,” Harmon said. “I want to maybe meet with players and ask them about their workouts and things like school and see how much they like it and working with their coaches.”

Rutgers and Temple are the most involved in Harmon’s recruitment, offering early, but the other schools on his list could be close as they prepare to host him in the upcoming months.

“Most of them are heavily interest,” Harmon said. “They want to get me and see me at their prospect camps and offer me a scholarship depending on how I do.”

Harmon is one of the top receiving targets for Rutgers, which recently promoted receiver coach Ben McDaniels to offensive coordinator.

McDaniels replaced Ralph Friedgen, and will be a play-caller at the BCS level for the first time in his career.

“I think they made a good decision,” Harmon said. “His brother is the offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots, so I feel like he’s going to be a good fit and call good plays.”

Harmon is close with former Rutgers receiver Quron Pratt, who signed an NFL futures contract with the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason.

Harmon recently visited Rutgers for a basketball game, and will be back March 7 for a personal junior day.

“They’re going great with Rutgers,” Harmon said. “I talk to them every week or two and they always show love. … I feel like Rutgers has been there for a while and as they go through the process, they’re going to keep growing.”

Harmon has no plans on a decision, and said that camps and 7-on-7s with his Next Level Greats team during the spring and summer should play a role in his recruitment.

“Time will tell but, if anything, the earliest I make my decision would probably have to be during the season,” Harmon said.
