Harmon Planning Official Visits

Palmyra (N.J.) receiver Kelvin Harmon recently announced a top six, but is not too close to a decision. Harmon wants to take multiple official visits before he commits, and discussed the latest in his recruitment with Scout during Rutgers Saturday 7-on-7 camp.

Palmyra (N.J.) three-star receiver Kelvin Harmon recently released his top six, but does not expect a commitment any time soon.

Rutgers, Temple, South Carolina, North Carolina, West Virginia and NC State cracked Harmon’s top six. After a late June Rutgers camp, official visits are likely next for the 6-foot-3, 180-pound receiver.

“There is some pressure [to commit], but I’m not feeling it too much,” Harmon said. “I want to take my officials first. I want to wait until late October or early November.”

In-season official visits give Harmon two or three opportunities to see schools farther away from home before he decides.

“I want to get it out of the way, but definitely not rush things,” Harmon said. “I don’t want recruiting in my head when we’re in the playoffs and everything.”

Rutgers most recently hosted Harmon. The coaching staff spent plenty of time with him during an all-day camp in which Harmon’s team won a 7-on-7 tournament that featured 101 programs.

Harmon spoke with multiple coaches and his father also enjoyed time with coach Kyle Flood.

“It’s the same love,” Harmon said about Rutgers. “I feel good about it. A lot of the coaches have been showing love. They were the first to believe me. That means a lot.”

Harmon also enjoyed June visits to both North Carolina and South Carolina.

“Coach [Gunter] Brewer at UNC is like a legendary receivers coach, so it’s exciting,” Harmon said. “… [South Carolina], I really like the school. It seems like a good environment. They have a good football tradition, so that’s good. Being far from home wouldn’t matter.”

Boston College could also come into the picture for Harmon after he unofficially visited Friday with NLG 7-on-7 coach Marcus Hammond.

“Boston College was a good visit,” Harmon said. “I had a good time talking to the coaches. We talked a lot about how they beat some top teams. I respect that about them.”
