DJ Harvey, a transfer who spent last college basketball season with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, has committed to play for the Vanderbilt Commodores. He made the announcement on the mean streets of Twitter.
Coach Stackhouse and the coaching staff at Vanderbilt have something brewing over in Tennessee! Can’t wait to be apart of it… blessed and excited to say that I’ve committed to Vanderbilt University pic.twitter.com/pl6Kni9Uqd

Harvey was originally a member of the 2017 recruiting class. Back then, he was a highly thought of four-star rated recruit, with most reputable recruiting service outlets pegging him as one of the 50 (or so) best players in that entire grouping.
He struggled to find steady minutes with Notre Dame as a freshman, but did well last season, scoring nearly 11 points per game to go alongside averaging over four rebounds per contest. His shooting numbers still need to improve, but for a lot of guys, that comes with time.
As for the Vanderbilt Commodores, this is kind of the ‘ready right now’ talent new head coach Jerry Stackhouse can use to help expedite the rebuilding of the program. The former NBA All-Star has already gone to town, trying to lure four and five-star players to his program since landing the job.
