Percy Harvin recruiting update

Percy Harvin will be one of the most sought after offensive prospects in the nation among the class of 2006. Harvin, 5-11 and 182 pounds, is an explosive wide receiver prospect from Virginia Beach (Va.) Landstown High School. As a junior, he had 58 catches for 950 yards and 26 rushes for 690 yards. Harvin scored 32 touchdowns and was named first team all-state at receiver. He also played corner where he had 10 interceptions. That's a big time year for a big time player.

"I have lots of speed and I can make people miss," said Harvin. "I think I run good routes and I have good hands. School want me as a receiver and I just want that ball."

According to Harvin he has "16 scholarship offers or so" from such schools like Southern Cal, LSU, Florida, FSU, Miami, Michigan, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Tennessee and Miami. Don't expect Mr. Harvin to narrow things down anytime soon.

"I will likely not narrow things down to November or after the season. I will just watch and evaluate everyone. I will try and see some teams this spring and summer like USC, Virginia, Tennessee and Miami. For me, the bottom line is playing time and I would also like to play in warm weather."

According to Harvin he carries a 2.5 GPA and has already scored a 890 SAT.

Harvin attended the U.S. Army All-American combine and Bowl. He hopes to be playing in the game next January and he enjoyed the combine experience, especially matching up with Myron Rolle, one of the top defensive backs in the nation.

"I can see myself playing in the game next year. The combine was tiring but fun. There were lots of people. I liked getting matched up with Myron Rolle. He tried to jam me at the line of scrimmage but I got by him."
