The suspense is over. The top point guard still on the board Eugene Harvey of St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, N.J. has made a college chose between three Big East schools.
"I chose Seton Hall because it is the best place for me overall," said Harvey, 6-foot, 165-pound point guard. "I really think playing there gives me the best opportunity for me to get where I want to be in life, and that's the next level."
The comfort level Harvey experienced on his visit to Seton Hall, pushed the Pirates past Cincinnati and Rutgers.
"When I went to Seton Hall on my visit, they showed me a lot of love," he said. "I really felt welcomed there. I was more comfortable there than anywhere else."
With his pure point guard style, Harvey is a catalyst who makes his teammates better. Even as a freshman, he expects to make a significant impact with his playmaking style.
"I should have a big impact with the way I play," he said. "With my motivation and my passion for the game, I believe I would make a big impact in any program. Being a good point guard, I can make myself and my teammates better."
Harvey, the No. 67 ranked player in the Rivals150 for the class of 2006, is the first big recruit for first year Seton Hall coach Bobby Gonzalez.
Eugene Harvey scouting report:
Harvey is a pass first point guard who is more of a driver than shooter at this point. Adept at executing the high ball screen, he can get to the basket and finish with either hand. He is also a good athlete who can defend the ball.
