D.J. Harvey, the 6-6 wing from DeMatha Catholic (MD), committed to Notre Dame on Tuesday night.
Ranked the No. 8 small forward in the Class of 2017 by 247Sports.com, he also considered Alabama, Notre Dame, Texas and UConn.
“I’m going to Notre Dame and I chose Notre Dame because of the relationship that I have with the coaching staff and how interested and how devoted coach [Mike] Brey was in me through the whole process,” Harvey told Scout.com.
Harvey had a home visit Monday night withBrey and his entire staff that his father, Darren, said was “great.” Brey is a DeMatha alumnus and a former assistant coach at the school.
“I can help with versatility and athleticism,” Harvey told Scout. “I’m a big two guard. I can defend the one through the four. I can bring scoring right away. I can also bring that defensive ability.”
Harvey is Notre Dame’s first 2017 commit. They remain in the mix for shooting guard Darryl Morsell and power forward Nicolas Claxton, among others.
