Who is Raheem Harvey?

Aside from a wide receiver verbal commit from Largo High, that is.

Harvey's rated at three starts by 247sports.com, both the site and its composite rating; two stars by Rivals.com; two stars by Scout.com; and three stars by ESPN.com.

Harvey's not track fast -- his best 100 was a pedestrian 11.4, his best 200 was 23.01 -- but not being "track fast" doesn't mean you can't be "football fast" (best example ever: Jerry Rice). It also doesn't have anything to do with whether or not you can catch the ball. Harvey made 34 catches for 434 yards (12.8 per catch) and eight touchdowns in 2013, almost identical to 34 for 490 (14.4) and seven touchdowns from 2012. Those high school numbers and Harvey's 6-1 frame, which will fill out to over 200, say "possession receiver" in a college West Coast offense. 


2 QB goodbyes

"I will be here next year" isn't quite "I am not going to be the Alabama head coach," although I was present for both. And wrote later that each statement might not be entirely true.

According to FIU Student Media, starting quarterback Jake Medlock's private Instagram account says he'll transfer to FCS program Valdosta State. As far as experienced quarterbacks on the roster, that would leave sophomore E.J. Hilliard.

Also, former FIU quarterback Paul McCall will receive his PhD in Electrical Engineering today. It's believed McCall is the first FIU player to get a doctorate. McCall threw for 5,189 yards, 34 touchdowns and 19 interceptions from 2006-09.
