Miami & FSU out of the race for both :(

The big news coming out of Virginia Beach (Va.) Landstown on Friday is that the nation's top player, wide receiver Percy Harvin, and his talented teammate Damon McDaniel (No. 60 overall) are ready to make their announcement. But when will it happen and what schools are still in the mix for the duo?


Rivals.com

Harvin and McDaniel are ready to announce Monday.
"Both Percy and Damon are going to announce their decisions on Monday afternoon," said Landstown head coach Chris Beatty. "They are both ready to end the process. Each feels comfortable enough to choose between two schools. We had to wait before we announced this because we wanted to contact Florida State and Miami on behalf of both kids to let them know so they wouldn't read it on the Internet.

"Percy was supposed to go to Miami this weekend but decided he wanted to cancel and Damon was supposed to go in January but he decided not to wait either. We also wanted to contact FSU for Percy and LSU for Damon to let them know."

Harvin, a 6-foot-1, 188-pounder with blazing speed, will choose between Florida and Southern Cal while McDaniel, 6-foot-0, 192 pounds, will choose between Florida and Virginia Tech.

"They just decided it was time and they didn't want to waste anyone else's time," said Beatty. "They both feel very comfortable with both of their schools and know they can't go wrong with either."

With Florida as a choice for both, is this a package deal?

"It never has been," Beatty said. "They both know they need to do what is right for each. They both liked Florida a lot on their visit but I also know Percy came back from USC with a huge smile on his face and Damon felt so at home at Virginia Tech. They know who they're deciding between but I don't know if they know where they're going yet."

It sucks but I think both are headed to Florida. Hopefully I'm wrong & Harvin goes to USC but this looks like a package deal, & what a Christmas package it is.

If they end up at florida, I will be a very happy fellow. Meyer should finally have his offense.

I don't know why top offensive players want to go to Florida. They're not going to go high in the draft because of that gimmick offense & they'll be constantly questioned about whether they can play in a normal offense.

That's why they should go to Notre Dame :) I actually expected more top WR to be interested in us but I cant really complain about the recruiting job Weis is doing.

If I was top QB, Id want to go to ND so everyone could see I could play in a real offence. ame thing for those to WRs. i think Harvin goes to USC for this reason

I don't know which one it was, but one of the two said that they wanted to play in a pro style offense, not a gimmick offense.

Cause they wanna win a National Championship.


Alex Smith went #1 overall from that very same offense, a big mistake IMO but #1 regardless. I can see your point in regards to QBs but WRs are different, they still run standard routes, plus the other things like options and shuffle passes just show their versatility.

If we got both those guys, that would have to give us the top recruiting class this year.
