A new offer...
James Harvey, defensive end, Cochranton, Pa. Offers: Akron, Ohio, Buffalo and New Hampshire Height: 6-foot-4 Weight: 262 Speed: 4.95 Notes: Harvey appears to be the perfect size to play end in the 3-3-5 defense. He also plays offensive line in high school, which is where Scout.com projects him in college. Likelihood: West Virginia and Pitt told Harvey they could offer if they like what they see in the first two weeks of next season. Harvey said he wants to attend an up-and-coming program that has his intended major -- sports medicine. To the best of my knowledge, Akron only has Sport and Exercise Science.

Why? To my calculation there are three main inhibitors for mid-major talent.
