Despite a solid sophomore year that included improvements across the board, Notre Dame guard D.J. Harvey has decided to transfer. Per the latest reports, Harvey has narrowed down his decision to two.
According to basketball analyst Jeff Goodman, Harvey will choose between Iowa and Vanderbilt as his transfer destination. Last year Harvey averaged 10.7 points per game, 4.2 rebounds per game, and 0.7 assists per game.
Iowa made it to the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament last year. They ultimately lost in overtime to Tennessee.
Vanderbilt finished dead-last in the SEC standings, going 0-18 in conference games and 9-23 overall.

Coming out of high school in 2017, Harvey was a four-star prospect and the No. 49 overall prospect in the country, per 247Sports.
He was also the No. 1 overall prospect from the state of Maryland.
The Fighting Irish have missed the NCAA Tournament in each of Harvey’s two seasons with the team. This past year Notre Dame went 14-19 overall – their lowest win total in 20 years.
The year before, Notre Dame went 20-14 and earned an invitation to the NIT. After beating Princeton, they lost to eventual winner Penn State in the Second Round. Harvey was not a part of Notre Dame’s NIT run as a freshman though.
