TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Trevor Harvey, a 6-11, 230 pound center, who starred the last two years at Marshalltown (Iowa) Community College, has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Florida State University announced Seminole head coach Steve Robinson. Harvey averaged 13.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and three blocked shots per game at Marshalltown this past season.
The signing came on the final day of the late signing period and adds to an already stellar recruiting class for Robinson’s Seminoles. Harvey becomes the third member of Florida State’s recruiting class and joins McDonald’s All-American Anthony Richardson (Raleigh, N.C./Leesville, N.C) and Adam Waleskowski (Alter, Ohio/Bishop Kettering) as the newest members of the Seminoles. Waleslowski was an all-state first-team selection in Ohio who has been called one of the major sleepers in this year’s recruiting class. Adrian McPherson (Bradenton/Bradenton Southeast), who was named Mr. Basketball in the state of Florida and led his team to a state basketball championship, will also join the Seminole basketball team next season. McPherson signed a National Letter of Intent to play football and is expected to be next true two-sport athlete at Florida State.
“We are very excited about the addition of Trevor Harvey to our program,” said head coach Steve Robinson. “His rebounding and scoring abilities will make us a better interior team and allow us more versatility near the basket on both offense and defense. We look forward to him being an important member of our team during the next two years.
“Trevor’s addition solidifies our recruiting class as one of the best in the nation and certainly allows us to become a better team. We are eagerly awaiting the start of practice when we can begin working with all the young men as we continue our efforts to improve as a program,” added Robinson.
In addition to leading the Tigers in scoring and rebounding, Harvey topped the team in field goal shooting percentage (.571 percent) and led the team and league in blocked shots (3.0).
Harvey selected Florida State over Miami (Fla.), Houston, Texas A&M Corpus Christi and Ole Miss.
