Three-star sleeper running back Tyler Caveness has come to a decision. The 5-foot-9, 176-pounder announced his decision late last week. Where is Caveness headed?
"I committed to Harvard the day after I watched them play Princeton," he said. "I had opportunities at both schools. Harvard told me not to go public with it until I talked to the admissions committee. I got that call last Friday and they said if I keep my grades up I'll be accepted."
Ivy League schools including Harvard don't offer official scholarships, but instead financial aid.

Caveness reflected on his choice.
"I went up there and saw the campus and I just really liked everything," he said. "I talked to the players and coaches and the facilities are all nice. The Harvard education is great. That was a huge factor. I'm planning to go into pre-med. I'm hoping to be an orthopedic surgeon in med school.
"In the past 16 years every player has won the Ivy League championship there and they have the second highest winning percentage in the FCS and sixth in all of Division I. It was just a combination of everything, football, education, players, facilities, coaches and it's a great fit up there."
The Roanoke (Va.) North Cross prospect is expected to see time at running back and in the slot at Harvard.
"They said they plan to use me similar to how West Virginia uses Noel Devine."
Meanwhile, this season Caveness has helped his team to a 7-2 record.
"I've rushed for 1,512-yards in nine game and have 17 touchdowns," he stated. "We've got our last regular season game this week and we're the No. 2 ranked team in our division."
