Nyckoles Harbor may be the most freakishly athletic high school football prospect in the last decade-plus.
The five-star out of Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C. stands at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds.
He has the size and length to play anywhere from wide receiver, to tight end, to defensive end and even linebacker. Oh, and by the way, he’s a record-setting sprinter. He’s officially clocked times of 10.28 in the 100-meter dash and 20.79 in the 200-meter dash.
247Sports ranks Harbor as the No. 15 overall player in the nation and the top-ranked uncommitted player. He’s said recently that he hopes to play on the offensive side of the ball and run track in college.
Unsurprisingly, Harbor boasts offers from just about every school in the country. But he’d recently seemed to whittle his list down to four schools: Michigan, Oregon, South Carolina and Maryland.
Now it appears that list is down to just two with national signing day just one day away.
Nyckoles Harbor Down To Oregon And South Carolina As Signing Day Approaches
Brian Dohn and Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports are reporting that it’s just Oregon and South Carolina who are left in contention for Harbor’s signature.
Sources late Tuesday morning continued to say what 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong reported Monday night, and that is South Carolina and Oregon are battling for the 6-foot-5, 225-pound Harbor, who is the No. 15 prospect in 247Sports’ rankings.
A big part of the final part of Harbor’s recruitment is NIL, according to sources, and that goes along with what he told 247Sports recently about his recruitment and how NIL could fit into it.
Discussions surrounding NIL were continuing Tuesday morning, sources said. Those sources told 247Sports Oregon made a huge impression on Harbor with its presentations from the track and football programs as well as NIL opportunities. The Nike aspect of Oregon is something very intriguing to Harbor, but distance from home is something the Ducks have to overcome. – via 247Sports
Harbor is a potentially program-changing prospect. And both the Ducks and Gamecocks would be over the moon should they land him. It would mark yet another signing-day coup for Dan Lanning and co. While Shane Beamer has built an impressive class in Columbia as well.
Landing Harbor is just the icing on top for either one.
