The perfect sum up of how weird the graduate transfer market and NCAA Transfer Portal have been in the college football off-season for the past two years, look no further than the situation surrounding experienced cornerback Nick Harvey. In just two years, Harvey might have transferred twice and played for three different programs.
Last off-season, Harvey decided to be an immediate eligible grad transfer with the South Carolina Gamecocks. Although, he didn’t give himself much of a shot to make an impact with South Carolina since his season was cut short by a concussion that sidelined him after just three games played.
Two years ago, Harvey took a redshirt also due to injury before his time with the Texas A&M Aggies was done. He up and bolted for South Carolina before the Jimbo Fisher-era began in College Station, TX. Harvey does bring with him 113 career total tackles, 14 pass deflections, one interception, and one forced fumble.
All this weird set of storylines from the transfer timeline from the past two off-seasons for Harvey should scare the Texas football program off. Harvey is a very good cornerback is a former five-star cornerback prospect. Texas could also use some experience and talent in the secondary with the departure of both of its starting cornerbacks from this past season.
