Virginia Beach (Va.) Landstown wide receiver Percy Harvin was supposed to take an official visit to Michigan this weekend for their rivalry battle with Ohio State, a game he has been looking forward to for awhile. However, an injury during his game on Friday forced him to miss the trip. Will the nation's No. 1 player re-schedule and how will his injury affect the rest of his season?
"Percy hurt his hip on the first play of the fourth quarter," said Landstown head coach Chris Beatty. "Right now he's day-to-day and we'll see later in the week if he can go for our second playoff game."
Before the injury, Harvin caught 8 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown on offense and had an interception on defense. Will he re-schedule his trip to Ann Arbor?
"I'm not sure yet," said Beatty, whose team won 34-14 against Kellam. "Coach Campbell from Michigan is supposed to be at our school tomorrow so we'll see what he'll do. He's still open to it, but he wants to get things over with if he can as well."
Harvin has set up another official visit, this one for Dec. 17 at Miami.
"That will be his last one I think," said Beatty. "After that it will be time to decide."
Harvin, a 6-foot-1, 188-pounder, has already been on officials to Florida and Southern Cal. While he hasn't named a leader as of yet, many feel that USC is the team to beat.
"I'm not sure about that, he really likes both of the schools he's seen," said Beatty. "Coach Meyer from Florida was at our game on Friday."
Aside from Michigan, the only other school that could get an official visit scheduled is Florida State.
"A lot depends on our playoff situation and when he can make time," Beatty said. "He was a little disappointed he couldn't make the Michigan-OSU game because it's such a huge deal. He's always wanted to take all five officials, but Percy is getting tired of the recruiting process so we'll see."
One school that tried to get back in the game is Notre Dame.
"Coach Weis called last week and we had a good talk," Beatty said. "Percy has just never been interested in Notre Dame for whatever reason, those are his own reasons."
