After a breakout season this past year, Notre Dame shooting guard D.J. Harvey has decided to take his talents elsewhere. As for where he may be going, he has plenty of options. But one Big Ten team is about to get the first crack at him.

According to the Des Moines Register, Harvey is set to visit the Iowa Hawkeyes in early May. Iowa currently has several scholarships available following the departures of Tyler Cook and Maishe Dailey.

Iowa may get the first look from Harvey, but the Hawkeyes are far from the only team on his radar. He is reportedly garnering interest from several top basketball programs, including Maryland, Auburn, Cincinnati, and Marquette, among others.

The report also noted that Harvey played AAU basketball with Iowa star Luke Garza, suggesting that the Hawkeyes do present an appeal.

Harvey missed most of his freshman year with an injury, but came back in the 2018-19 season with a vengeance.

He finished his sophomore year averaging 10.7 points per game, 3.4 rebounds per game, and 4.2 assists per game in 29 starts.

Coming out of high school in 2017, Harvey was a four-star prospect and the No. 49 prospect in the country per 247Sports. He was also considered the No. 1 overall prospect from the state of Maryland.
