Greenbelt (Md.) Eleanor Roosevelt defensive end Derrick Harvey, the No. 8 player in the nation as ranked by Rivals.com, has made some late changes to his list of schools.
"Derrick has cancelled his visit to Miami," said Roosevelt head coach Rick Houchens of his 6-foot-5, 235-pound star. "With Miami it's pretty much a depth chart situation. Derrick wants to be able to compete for playing time early and that may not neccessarily be that case at Miami. There's an outside chance he could re-schedule it, but right now they seem to be out of the picture."
Harvey took an official visit to Maryland this past weekend.
"It went well," said Houchens. "He's very interested in them because they're a top program, close to home and they offer a chance to compete early. That's pretty much the same thing with all his favorites."
Harvey will take an official visit to Ohio State on Jan. 9, to Florida on Jan. 16 and Tennessee on Jan. 23. Georgia and Miami are on the outside looking in for his fifth visit with a new school emerging.
"Virginia is looking like they could get his last visit on Jan. 30," said Houchens. "He and his family have always liked Virginia and the coaches. It's a great academic school and he could impact right away. They're back in the mix."
Harvey had 31 sacks as a senior and is regarded as one of the top pure pass rushers in the country.
