“There's never been one like him,” Mount Dora Head Coach Chad Grabowski pointed out. “As far as
the major colleges coming after him early, Vegas has exceeded everything of any player to ever come
out of here.”  

“He's something special. You don't see too many players out there like him,” Grabowski

What's intriguing about Harley is his versatility. Although he plays primarily at quarterback for Mount
Dora, he could end up at wide receiver, safety, running back, even outside linebacker on the next level.
Leesburg will have to respect Harley's abilities no matter where he's lined up on the field Friday night.

“Vegas has started on defense since his freshman year for us,” Grabowski noted. “He can play
multiple positions over there, too – does a good job of tackling and a good job in coverage.”

There has been lots attention bought to the city of Mount Dora because of Harley's Talent. Some of the
nation's top school have expressed lots of interest in Harley.

“Alabama is really hot on him right now,” Grabowski confirmed. “They've sent him official invitations for
all of the games, stuff to invite his parents up there. It seems like I get a stack from Alabama every day
on (Harley).”

The media and recruiting of Harley has been like no other player in the History of Mount Dora High
School All of the Florida schools have shown interest in Harley also.  

“Florida has been on Vegas since last year. Miami, same thing,” Grabowski said. “A lot of these
schools have been on him since last year, they just can't do a whole lot right now except talk to him
now and then on the phone.”

Alabama, Auburn, Ball State, Florida, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Georgia Southern, Georgia
Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, LSU, Marshall, Memphis, Miami, North Carolina, North Carolina
State, South Alabama, South Florida, Temple, UCF and Washington State all are actively recruiting
Harley according to rivals.com.

“They are coming out watching practice and getting transcripts,” Grabowski said. ” They pretty much all
are giving him a chance to play quarterback. They like his arm. George Tech really likes his speed.
They run the option, so they aren’t as concerned about his throwing ability.”

Leesburg defense who is led by 2011 Butkus Award Watch List nominee Noor Davis, will have their
hands full dealing with the versatility of Harley (6-2, 185) is quite apparent by his stats. Last season he
accounted for 3,089 yards of offense between his running and passing abilities. As a sophomore he
had more than 2,000 yards total offense. Harley did all of this in 2010 while splitting time with Mitchell
Bourne at quarterback.

But, Harley’s has built quite a reputation around his rushing abilities. He had 1,837 yards rushing and
15 touchdowns last season, opposed to 1,261 yards and 14 touchdowns passing. The Jackets
defense has not seen this kind of dual offensive threat in a long time.
