Strongly built at 6-foot-3, 195 pounds, Harmon was also weighing offers from N.C. State, Boston College, Temple, Rutgers and other schools. Instead, he’ll head to the ultra-competitive SEC to play for Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks.

South Carolina is having a rough season, primarily due to quarterback Connor Mitch being injured, but has still been a program known for producing talented receivers, namely Chicago Bears Pro Bowler Alshon Jeffery. Just how big a role Harmon will have as a freshman next season remains to be seen, but there’s no doubt that he’s heading to a program that will make him a more complete player.
