Raheem Harvey planning visits

Three-star wide receiver wants to visit Western Kentucky among others.

Class of 2014 wide receiver Raheem Harvey holds offers from Western Kentucky, Indiana, Middle Tennessee, South Florida, Florida Atlantic and Ball State, among many others.

But right now, one school stands out for him.

"Indiana," said Harvey, when asked if he had any favorite schools yet. "The way they've recruited me means a lot.

"It hasn't been just one coach, it's been a couple. They've recruited my mom too, showing her how my lifestyle would be nice up there."

Even though Indiana seems to be a frontrunner right now, there are plenty of programs still in the mix for Harvey.

One of the schools emerging as an option is Western Kentucky.

"I'm trying to visit there (WKU)," he said. "I think I'm going to whenever we have a bye week, they told me to just let them know when and I'll be up there.

"Indiana and Northern Illinois are some others I want to visit. Florida Atlantic, I won't take an official one because I can just drive there easy."

Harvey dreams of playing professional football when he grows older, a factor among a few that will weigh on his eventual college decision.

"I'm just trying to get to the NFL," he said. "Whichever school I feel like is gonna put me in that position.

"But also education is important. I was gonna make a commitment before the summer ends, but I don't really know now. Just whenever the time is right, I don't really know, whenever I decide that school that fits right."

Listed at 6-foot, 170 pounds, the three-star wide receiver lists several skills that are attracting the attention of Division 1 programs.

"I'm good at stretching the field, and especially goal-line jump balls," Harvey said. "Really my speed has changed from last year too.

"I go hard against press coverage, it's a war when you're trying to press me. I'm working on catching the ball smoother and getting yards after-the-catch, trying to break tackles and keep moving."
