Harvey close to another offer

Jalen Harvey grew up liking the USC football program so his junior day visit last weekend was a big deal for the El Cerrito, Calif., wide receiver.
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound prospect did not receive an offer - he was told like many others he would have to return for summer camp - and Harvey seemed fine with it.
He had a great time touring the USC campus and talking to the coaches and there's no doubt if the Trojans offered they'd be a big-time favorite.
"It was pretty awesome," Harvey said. "I've liked USC ever since I was young so it was a thrill for me to come up there and see the campus on the tour they had for us.
"I'm still taking it slow. My eyes, like I said I liked USC since I was a little kid, so my eyes are really out here in L.A."
USC has not offered but Arizona State, Cal and Washington State have so far and Harvey said he's excited about all three offers.
His trip to Los Angeles really stood out though and Harvey said he was especially impressed with how the coaching staff handled things during his trip.
"The coaches were really outgoing," Harvey said. "At the same time they still had to do their business so I respected that."
Another offer could be on the way but for a different position.
Harvey, who helped lead his team to a 13-1 season as a junior, said Oregon could be close to offering but as a defensive back, not a wide receiver.
It would be something Harvey would strongly consider especially since the Ducks have been so successful recently.
"Oregon is going to offer me as a defensive back," Harvey said. "I have to talk to the coach and they're supposed to offer me at defensive back."
