2019 Commitment Profile: R.J. Harvey, Jr., quarterback

Florida dual-threat can follow in Marques Hagans’ footsteps at UVA

NCAA Football: Richmond at Virginia Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports

Name: R.J. Harvey, Jr.
Hometown (Team): Orlando, FL (Edgewater)
Position: Quarterback
Height: 5-10
Weight: 185

  • 247 Sports: 3* (83.17)
  • Rivals: 3* (5.5)
  • ESPN: 3* (76)

What you should know:

  • Most recruiting services do their ratings/rankings by projection to NFL. Harvey gets knocked down in those services because of his height—even though he led Edgewater to a 12-2 season and the Florida Class 7A state semifinals.
  • Even with an unorthodox throwing motion, ball comes out of his hand with zip and accuracy. Deep ball is very pretty, and throws well on the move.
  • Don’t expect Harvey to run over anyone. But he sure can run by them and make them look pretty silly as he does so. Lots to work with in crafting an offensive gameplan.
