The first truly significant commitment of the Jerry Stackhouse tenure at Vanderbilt happened on Tuesday.
D.J. Harvey, who spent the last two seasons at Notre Dame, announced that he will be transferring to Vanderbilt to finish out his college career. He battled injuries for much of his time in South Bend, but he did still manage to averaging 10.7 points and 3.9 boards as a sophomore.
Harvey is a talented kid. At one point during his high school career, he was considered a top 10 player in his class, but he ended up enrolling at Notre Dame as a four-star prospect. With a redshirt season on the books to get healthy, develop his body and improve his shooting, there’s a chance he could end up being an all-SEC caliber player when it is all said and done.
