Duron Harmon is gartnering a lot of attention

Recently, the Scarlet Knights have offered safety Duron Harmon out of Caesar Rodney High School in Delaware a scholarship. As a junior, the 6-foot-2 192 pound playmaker has shown he can deliver the hit and defend the pass. Delaware isn't a hot bed for recruiters, but schools are taking notice of his ability. Come see what he had to say about Rutgers and his recruiting thus far.

Delaware isn't exactly a prime target to find recruiters searching for talent on the gridiron.

"You don't hear a lot about Delaware athletes," Caesar Rodney High School safety Duron Harmon said. "So guys like me and [wide receiver] Justin Brown are trying to change that.

"It makes me want to work that much harder to show those that say there's not much talent here. It's a small place and not many people come off Route 1 to watch us."

Harmon is a 6 foot 192 pound safety out from Camden-Wyoming, DE who had one offer from Stanford until Rutgers came in.

The Scarlet Knights have recently joined the sweepstakes for Harmon and he's been able to follow the school since they aren't too far away.

"I've been following them," he said. "I know defensive lineman Desmond Wynn, he's from Delaware and I get to watch them because they're a local team."

Harmon said Rutgers is a team that's on the rise.

"They're a good program that's going in the right direction," he said.

Next Saturday he plans on visiting the Knights because his mother has wanted him to take a visit to the Garden State.

"I'll probably go drive down with my family," Harmon said. "My mom keeps talking about it."

More offers are expecting to be coming in real soon. According to the Delaware safety, Pittsburgh, Vanderbilt and Connecticut are coming after him hard and he expects the schools to ship him over and offer in a "week or two."

He will also be taking a visit to Virginia this upcoming week. Harmon's cousin, D.J. Bell, talked about him while he was playing there and the coaches have taken an interest in him since then. He's been in contact with Running Backs Coach/Assistant Special Team Coordinator Anthony Poindexter.

Academics, how good the football team is and his relationship with the coaches will be the three biggest factors in the hard hitting defender's, who made 43 tackles and forced five fumbles, decision.

Don't expect that decision to come anytime soon.

"I'm not real sure," Harmon said on when he will make his decision. "I don't want to rush it."

As of now, Harmon is wide open and has no favorites.
