Maryland guard D.J. Harvey signs to play with Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Notre Dame coach Mike Brey has signed 6-foot-6 guard D.J. Harvey from Bowie, Maryland, to play for the Fighting Irish next season.

Harvey averaged 15.4 points, seven rebounds and four assists last season as a junior at DeMatha High School, the same school Brey attended and where he later taught and coached.

Brey says he has been recruiting Harvey for three years, describing him as athletic and a strong shooter with ''a great stroke.'' Brey says Harvey is becoming a better passer.

Brey says the Irish could still add another player in the spring. He said he also would consider accepting a transfer or two. Brey says he hopes to add a forward and a point guard in the next recruiting class.
