Former Notre Dame guard D.J. Harvey announces transfer to Vanderbilt

New, comments

Harvey will have two years to play at Vanderbilt.

NCAA Basketball: Notre Dame at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

The latest addition to Vanderbilt’s basketball team came on Tuesday. Former Notre Dame guard D.J. Harvey announced via Twitter that he will transfer to Vanderbilt.

Ranked as the #51 recruit nationally by Rivals coming out of D.C. powerhouse DeMatha Catholic in 2017, the 6’6”, 225-pound Harvey played two years for the Irish. Last season, he averaged 10.7 ppg and 4.2 rpg. His shooting percentages weren’t great — 46 percent on twos, 30 percent on threes — though his 75 percent on free throws suggests there might be room to grow there.

Under normal circumstances, we would expect Harvey to sit out a year before playing his final two years; but given the NCAA’s recent lax attitude toward enforcing that rule, we would not rule out Harvey playing for Vanderbilt in 2019-20. The addition of Harvey now leaves Vanderbilt with two more scholarships to fill for next season, though one would presumably be held open for Simi Shittu should he decide to withdraw his name from the NBA Draft.
