WR Harmon Recaps Visit To Rutgers
Palmyra (N.J.) High receiver Kelvin Harmon, one of the top names to know in New Jersey's 2016 class, got his first inside look at Rutgers on Friday and came away with a strong feeling. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Harmon made an unofficial visit with his brother, met with receivers coach Ben McDaniels and coach Kyle Flood, and is expected to return for a spring practice and learn more about the school. "When I got there and I was shown around, I felt right at home," Harmon said. "I got to go to the player's room, the weight room, where they hang out. I went to meet with the coaches and I played Madden with the recruiting coach, Sopan (Shah)." Although Harmon visited last year and saw parts of the campus and the facilities, this was a much more personal and meaningful. "It feels great," he said. "Last year when I went up there it was excited, but this time I was more excited this time. It felt like I was wanted. They want me to come up to a camp in the summer, and I can come up to as many spring practices as I want, and in the fall I can chose any game I want to come to." Harmon told Scout.com in January he enjoys watching Rutgers because he lives a few doors down from Quron Pratt, who went from Palmyra to Rutgers. On campus, he met with McDaniels, a former NFL assistant, who just started with the Scarlet Knights. "He was showing me film, and he compared me to (NFL receiver) Vincent Jackson and he was showing me some technique," Harmon said. "It felt good because I was feeding into every single detail he told me. I was like, ‘This is great because he's been around a lot of great receivers.' I was taking everything in." Harmon also was able to sit down and speak with Flood. "He was asking me about my background, and he's a good person to talk," Harmon said. "He told me he'll be watching me this season, and I'm one of their top players on their 2016 list, and he was saying it's all up to me now." Harmon is also hearing from Temple, Villanova and Wagner, where he is set to visit April 26.
