Notre Dame G Harvey transfers to Vanderbilt

Notre Dame guard D.J. Harvey announced Tuesday he will transfer to Vanderbilt to play for new coach Jerry Stackhouse.

Harvey started 29 games as a sophomore for the Fighting Irish in 2018-19, averaging 10.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.

“Coach Stackhouse and the coaching staff at Vanderbilt have something brewing over in Tennessee! Can’t wait to be a part of it … blessed and excited to say that I’ve committed to Vanderbilt University,” he posted on Twitter.

Harvey will have two seasons of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2019-20 campaign under NCAA transfer rules, barring some sort of waiver.

The 6-foot-6, 225-pound guard was the No. 51 recruit nationally by Rivals in 2017 coming out national prep powerhouse DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Md.

As Harvey put it, there is “something brewing” at Vanderbilt, which fired Bryce Drew and hired Stackhouse last month after a 9-23 season that included an 0-18 record in SEC play.

K.J. Martin, the son of 15-year NBA veteran Kenyon Martin, announced his commitment to the Commodores earlier this week.

Scotty Pippen Jr., son of six-time NBA champion and Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen, signed with Vanderbilt in April.

Stackhouse, 44, was a two-time All-Star who played 18 NBA seasons (1995-2013) with eight teams. He spent last season as an assistant coach with the Memphis Grizzlies and previously worked on the Toronto Raptors’ coaching staff.
