    A.J. has offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Ole Miss and South Carolina. He is getting interest from Ohio State, Southern Cal, Tennessee and Notre Dame. A.J. says he grew up dreaming of playing for ND, tOSU, or Michigan, but he is now wide open.

    My Take: A.J. does not look smooth in his films..too much wasted motion. However, his wingspan is obvious and he shows flashes of an athleticism that could develop into something big. This is still a young player who is developing and adjusting to a huge body...

    From the Clemson site...Harmon did not make his planned visit to Clemson this past weekend. He is basically just waiting for his parents to visit Clemson with him before committing.

    So without further ado, here is A.J. Harmon, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound offensive lineman from Jefferson County High School.
    "I want to be the No. 1 offensive and defensive lineman in the country," said Harmon, who already has been tabbed one of Scout.com's top 100 juniors in the nation. "I want them to come look at me, and if they need an offensive lineman, they could put me in there. Or if they needed a defensive lineman, they could put me in there, too."
    Florida coaches already have told Harmon they want him for offense. Georgia just flat out wants him, which could be one reason the keynote speaker at Jefferson County's football banquet was none other than Mark Richt. Current Bulldogs players Marcus Howard, Kregg Lumpkin, Paul Oliver and Fernando Velasco, a former Jefferson County player, also were in attendance.
    But with a full year to go before it's his turn to sign, Harmon isn't about to make any quick decisions.
    "Right now, I am trying to talk to some people who have been through this," he said. "I want to talk to people like Chris Little and why he picked [Georgia] and see what they were looking for and what I should be looking for."
    One thing Harmon definitely wants is a chance to play as a freshman.
    "My freshman year, I would love to start or get some playing time so that I could show the coaches that I could do the same thing that a senior could do," Harmon said. "I am coming to learn but by the time the season gets ready to start, I want to play."

    Harmon Says Options Remain Open

    By Phil Kornblut
    OL A. J. Harmon (6-5 315) of Louisville, GA now has offers from USC, Clemson, Auburn, Florida, Ole Miss, Georgia, Florida State and Ole Miss, and he's pretty happy with that. "I've got all the offers I really want," he said. "My big concern now is seeing all the offers my running back (Lamar Brown) is going to get. He's like my little brother." Harmon also is getting interest from Ohio State, Southern Cal, Notre Dame and LSU. He says there's no favorite. "Everybody is the same," Harmon said. He plans to go to junior day at Georgia this weekend. He also plans to visit Florida but he's not committed to any other junior days at this point. He does expect to go to summer camps at Clemson, Florida and LSU.

    Scott Kennedy?s top combine performers
    1. A.J. Harmon of Jefferson County continues to show that he?s one of the best prospects in the country. He was at the facility when I got there, and I thought it was one of CES? college trainees getting ready for the NFL combine. That?s not hard to believe when he measured in at 6-5.5 and 328 pounds yet is still agile enough to turn in a 4.75 short shuttle time.

    Meet A.J. Harmon, Tavarres King; Auburn lands first junior

    By Jeff D'Alessio
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    We went one-one-one with two of the top prospects in the Class of 2008: Jefferson County offensive tackle A.J. Harmon and Habersham Central wide receiver Tavarres King:
    A.J. HARMON
    Nickname: Flight 75
    Where he ranks: Early Georgia player of the year candidate made Rivals.com?s and Scout.com?s lists of the top 100 juniors nationally
    Three words to describe me: Leader, reliable, determined
    What I hope to accomplish in college: Get stronger and faster and learn something new every day. Hopefully win an award, win a national title and be in a position to get drafted.
    My style on the field reminds some of ? Ray Lewis. I talk a lot and I back it up on the field.
    The campus I?ve liked the most so far: I like certain things about different campuses: Clemson?s weight room, Georgia?s overall facilities, Auburn?s stadium.
    Proudest high school accomplishment: Being named to USA Today?s national top 10 list for the class of 2008.
    In my iPod: Rick Ross
    Favorite flick: ?The Program?
    What I drive: 1988 Monte Carlo SS on 20s
    Future major: Education or sociology
    Did you know? In the weight room, I compete against myself. It pushes me to the limit.
    Funniest recruiting experience: Fans coming up to me after a game when they?ve had too much to drink.
    Ten years from now, I will be ? Hopefully playing in the NFL. If not, probably coaching football.

    Harmon Won't Make Clemson Junior Day

    By Phil Kornblut
    One of Clemson's top recruiting targets, OL A.J. Harmon (6-5 315) of Louisville, GA, said Tuesday night he will not be able to make it to the Tigers' junior day this Saturday. However, he does plan to visit the Tigers April 4th. Harmon went to Auburn's junior day last weekend along with his teammate running back Lamar Brown. He plans to go to Georgia's junior day March 24th, and he also plans to visit Florida. Harmon said right now Clemson, Georgia and Florida have seperated themselves from the pack. "I feel great about all the schools," he said. "All of them are so good. It's hard right now. They are all about the same." Harmon has offers from Clemson, USC, Auburn, Florida, Ole Miss, Georgia, Florida State, Virginia, North Carolina and Alabama.

    Harmon Still Set With Clemson Visit

    By Phil Kornblut
    OL A.J. Harmon (6-5 325) of Louisville, GA was at Georgia last Saturday for a junior day appearance. He has also been to Auburn and he might visit Florida this Saturday. He is scheduled for a visit to Clemson April 4th and he says that visit is still on. Harmon had thought about making an early decision but now ways that won't be possible. "I thought I was about ready but it's just back and forth," he said. "I think it's just smart to wait and see." Harmon said five schools have moved away from the pack...Clemson, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and Ole Miss. There is no individual leader.

    Harmon Planning Several Visits

    By Phil Kornblut
    Clemson commitment DL A.J. Harmon (6-5 325) of Louisville, GA said Tuesday night he's firmly committed to Clemson but will take other official visits in January. "Everything is the same," Harmon said. 'I'm just waiting for these days to go by fast so I can join my team. I will take official visits to Ohio State and Southern Cal. I just want to enjoy some places that everybody doesn't get a chance to see." Harmon said he and Tiger target DL Brandon Thompson will visit together on the same weekend. Thompson, who made an official visit to Ohio State last weekend, has scheduled Clemson for November 16th but Harmon said Thompson will change that date. Harmon is confident Thompson will join him at Clemson. "He's coming with us," he said. Harmon said he might take an official visit to Georgia. He's going to make an unofficial visit to Georgia this weekend with his parents. Harmon said Georgia has not been bothering him about changing his commitment. "They said if I change my mind to give them a call."
