As reported by Katherine Smith, Javon (Lakeland, Florida) joins Vincent Mihota (DE) Marshawn Williams (RB) as Tech's third commitment for the class of 2014 . In case you forget, the year is 2012. According to Smith's report, Javon was in Blacksburg last Saturday and attended Tech's one-day camp.
"I [HS coach Irving Strickland] talked with him and he just said he fell in love with the town, the coaches and what they have to offer academically,'' Strickland said. "I asked him if he was sure and he said after talking with him mom and his brothers, he knew it was the right place for him."
Harrison had been a standout receiver for the Red Devils, and one of the tops in Polk County, but he wants to play cornerback in college. Strickland said Virginia Tech provides an opportunity for Harrison to play that position and possibly earn some early playing time.
"Wherever he plays, they are getting a good one,'' Strickland said.
Javon also held a Michigan offer.
The first thing I noticed while watching his highlights is he's a burner. On the very first play he dishes out a little bit of a move, then blazes his way to the pylon for a score. He flashes his speed, and moves in the open field throughout the film. He plays tall. He's 6-2 and he can go out and grab the football (watch his first pick at corner). He returns punts, blocks down field, and carries the ball on designed runs, a very diverse skill set. At 4:53 he tracks down a running back from the opposite side of the field to make a potential touchdown saving tackle. He looks like a very good get.
