Former Irish guard D.J. Harvey transfers to Vanderbilt

By  | 

D.J. Harvey has a new home.

The former Irish guard decided to transfer after this season, and Tuesday he announced he will be going to Vanderbilt.

Harvey was one of the most hyped recruits Mike Brey ever landed at Notre Dame, but he never lived up to that billing his two years on campus.

Injuries played a part in that. He suffered a knee injury midway through his freshman season that held him to just 19 games, averaging less than six points per game.

He started every game this past season, averaging 10.7 ppg and 4.2 rpg, but now Harvey is moving on.

He will join a Vanderbilt squad led by first-year head coach and former NBA legend Jerry Stackhouse. Just like Notre Dame, Vanderbilt has missed the NCAA Tournament the past two seasons.

Harvey will have to sit out the 2019-20 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
