When you think great recruiting states many think of Florida and when you think of top prospect producing schools you think of Tallahassee (Fl.) Lincoln. Sure, everyone already knows who Fred Rouse is and that he is one of the top players in the country. There are also two other Division I prospects at Lincoln in the class of 2005.
Offensive guard/defensive tackle Cole Harvey is a 6-foot-3, 255 pounder who could project at several positions on the college level and recruiters are taking notice.
“I’ve been hearing from Florida, Auburn, Tennessee, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Duke, Maryland, Iowa State, Georgia Tech, Boston College, Wake Forest, UCLA and South Carolina,” Harvey said.
Harvey runs the 40 yard dash in 4.9 seconds, boasts a 305 bench press and a 375 pound squat.
“My favorite schools right now are Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Florida State and Ole Miss. I grew up pulling for Auburn, but I have always gone to Florida States games because it’s so close.”
As a sophomore Harvey earned all-area and all-county honors and as a junior he was named all-county and all-state.
“I’m looking for a coaching staff with a good personality and one that I can fit in with. I will make my decision based on how comfortable I feel with that place. Facilities and tradition are also going to play a role in my decision.”
Some think that Harvey may end up on the offensive line in college, but there is no doubt he could play several positions.
“I can play offensive line, defensive line and tight end. I feel like my best position is tight end and that is what I would prefer to play, but I wouldn’t mind playing somewhere else.”
He projects as a full qualifier with a 3.0 GPA and 990 SAT score.
