by Andy Hilton, recruit757
Our #17 athlete in the recruit757 Fab 30 is a player on the Shark City juggernaut known as Lake Taylor.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #17 senior prospect region-wide is Lake Taylor athlete Javon Harvey.
#17 Javon Harvey (2019 ATH 6-0 175) – Lake Taylor High School
Javon Harvey has a role as a wide receiver and cornerback for the Titans, but that really means he’s a utility man for Head Coach Hank Sawyer. There are a lot of ways Harvey contributes to the success of the Titans.
As a corner, he’s probably seeing his most important role. Corners in Lake Taylor’s defense are left on an island to play man coverage, sometime without the benefit of a safety.
Old Dominion saw the value that he could bring into their program. In May, the Monarchs offered. By late June, Javon had committed to ODU.
“The relationship me and Coach (Kermit) Buggs has is tremendous. ODU is great program with great coaches who are building up their program and I’m 100% ready to bring (my talents) to the table. Also, I want to play for my STATE!” said Harvey after his commitment.
We’re sure there’s one more thing he wants to accomplish, and that’s winning another state title for Lake Taylor. That quest begins on Friday night, August 31, when the Titans visit Western Branch.
