Delaware isn't usually a hotbed for recruiting talent, but in 2009 the state features at least two prospects to watch. One is highly touted receiver Justin Brown, the other received his first offer not too long ago from the Pac-10.
"I've got one offer from Stanford," Wyoming (Dela.) Caesar Rodney athlete Duron Harmon said. "I'm also getting a lot of interest from Purdue, Vanderbilt, Michigan State, Maryland, Virginia, Rutgers and a few others.
"Right now I'm open to anybody. I'm just trying to do research on the schools to see if they'll be a fit for me. I do like that Stanford beat USC and Cal, both of those are great football programs and that says a lot about their program."
Harmon grew up a fan of a different school.
"I grew up liking Miami," he said. "Every year they were a great team and it seems like they sent their whole roster to the NFL. Every year they have a winning tradition and that winning streak."
The 6-foot-1, 191-pounder discussed what he is looking for in a school.
"I definitely want a school with good academics, my mom always has preached that to me. I'm looking at something in sports therapy, sports management or teaching," he stated. "I'm looking for a football tradition and good winning tradition. Of course I want playing time and then I'll look at the relationship with the coaches. I don't want to go somewhere I don't get along with them."
Harmon is considering visits to Rutgers and Virginia later this spring.
Last season Harmon posted over 900-yards of offense and 12 touchdowns along with 43 tackles, two interceptions and eight deflections on his way to first team all-conference and honorable mention all-state honors as a junior.
"I definitely saw a big improvement as a junior," he said. "I was much stronger and in better shape, my skill level was better.
"I think I stuck out because I'm physical, fast and versatile. I can do a lot of different things and be a threat anywhere on the football field. Teams are recruiting me mostly as a safety, but a few are looking at slow or running back."
