D.J. Harvey, a four-star recruit out of Dematha Catholic High School (Hyattsville, M.D.), has verbally committed to Notre Dame, according to Evan Daniels of Scout.com.
“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,” he told Scout.
Harvey is the No. 8 ranked shooting guard and No. 43 overall recruit in the class of 2017.
DJ Harvey is a significant pledge for Mike Brey. Ranked No. 43. Makes shots on the move & from mid-range. Rebounds the ball well from wing.— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) September 21, 2016
Harvey was reportedly also considering Alabama, UConn and Texas. He visited Alabama over the weekend before electing to join Mike Brey's squad in South Bend, Indiana.
He is the first recruit for the Fighting Irish's Class of 2017.
