Texas A&M Aggies graduate transfer Nick Harvey has committed to the South Carolina Gamecocks, he announced Wednesday on Twitter.

The redshirt junior cornerback was considering joining the Arizona Wildcats, and even took a visit to Tucson in mid-April.

Harvey played at Texas A&M under new Arizona head coach Kevin Sumlin before the latter was fired last winter. Harvey was also considering Auburn and Tennessee.

At minimum, he would have provided some depth in the Wildcats’ secondary. In 2016, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound corner started 12 games, leading Texas A&M with 10 broken up passes.

Harvey also ranked fourth on the team with 66 tackles, including 46 solo stops, and returned one punt which he took for a 73-yard touchdown.

Harvey sat out the 2017 season after undergoing knee surgery. A former four-star recruit, he was the No. 60 player in the 2014 class.

As our Gabe Encinas outlined here, Arizona still has a few scholarships left to offer this offseason, so it wouldn’t be shocking if it adds a transfer or two before fall camp.

Harvey just won’t be one of them.
