Harvey remains loyal to AU

Back in August, Wesley McGriff went into Tallahassee, FL and stole one of the top defensive players in the country in 4-star S Ahmari Harvey from the Noles.

Since that commitment, Harvey has been one of Auburn’s loudest supports on social media. But Gus Malzahn’s firing took him by surprise and had some wondering if the south FL playmaker would stick with the Tigers.

Both Florida State and Texas A&M made a late push but it was for naught. Harvey has decided to stick with the Tigers and has officially signed.

Projection: 4-7 Round (Day 3)

Comparison: Jaquon Johnson

Not the biggest defensive back. Should be able to pack on muscle once in college. A natural playmaker with great ball skills that has produced at the high school level. Uses superb leaping ability to his advantage. Not afraid to lower his head and strike a ball carrier in run support. Can work the slot and play man coverage, but looks more relaxed when lined up over the top. Will need to get faster at the next level as he will no longer be the best athlete on the field. Likely a multi-year starter for a Power 5 program with the upside there to develop into an NFL Draft pick.

War Eagle Ahmari!
