Harvey Has a Busy Week

The El Cerrito (Calif.) receiver, Jalen Harvey, gets a UCLA offer and visits another Pac-12 school...

El Cerrito (Calif.) receiver Jalen Harvey (6-1.5, 190), has seven offers, and is fresh off an unofficial visit to Arizona State this past weekend.

"I went down there to Arizona State and it was pretty good all weekend," said Harvey. "They showed me around the campus and it's a pretty big campus. We got to see the field and we got to talk with all the coaches."

Harvey said the highlight was a sit down with head coach Todd Graham.

"He was who gave me my first offer so we had a chance to talk with him," said Harvey. "I like him. He's just straight forward and said you'll get no playing time with an attitude. He wants his players to leave the attitude. He's a real dude."

The Sun Devils got in on Harvey first, and since then, six more Pac-12 schools have followed and a couple of SEC schools could be close to offering.

"I have seven offers, from Cal, Arizona State, Washington, Washington State, Oregon, Oregon State and UCLA," said Harvey. "And Tennessee and Arkansas are on the verge."

The Bruins were the most recent to offer Harvey, doing so last week.

"Coach Angus (McClure) offered me and I was pretty excited," said Harvey. "I went down for their Junior Day and I loved the campus, it's definitely a spot I can hang around. I love L.A., period."

With a handful of offers under his belt, Harvey is targeting a good time to make a decision, but even that is difficult to nail down.

"It's kind of hard to decide when I want to commit, like it could be during the middle of the season, or it could be after the season," said Harvey.

Harvey will be at the Oakland NFTC, but is holding off from doing any 7on7 tournaments.

"I'm busy enough with school and football, so I don't need to add another thing that could keep me busy and keep me from doing school work," said Harvey.
