Ahmari Harvey, a four-star safety, will be joining the team in 2021.
Ahmari Harvey Commits to Auburn
In addition to the Tigers, Harvey fielded offers from programs such as Alabama, Florida, FSU, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Indiana, LSU, Miami, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas A&M.
The Tigers have a new head coach, Bryan Harsin, and they will look to get over the hump and reach the higher tier of SEC prominence.
Harvey will be joining fellow defensive back signees Kamal Hadden and Phillip O’Brien Jr. in 2021. There will be competition for the starting roles, but it is still good to know that the future defensive corps will have time to gain chemistry and get acclimated to the program.
Ahmari Harvey Highlights
Ahmari Harvey is a playmaker, plain and simple. He finds the action on the field and has the ball skills to contest any pass that comes in his direction. He will be playing safety for the Tigers, but he has enough athleticism to line up at cornerback, too.
In 2019, Harvey totaled 94 tackles and caught six interceptions, returning half of those for touchdowns. Working with defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff should only help Harvey reach his potential and become one of the better defenders in college football.
Harvey’s 247Sports Composite puts him as the 17th-best safety in the recruiting class, but ESPN is much higher, ranking Harvey in their top five. In any case, the NFL is a realistic possibility for the four-star prospect.
Ahmari Harvey is just one of the players poised to make an immediate impact for the Auburn Tigers in 2021. If his high school tape and statistics prove anything, it is that he’s is up to the task.
