Raleigh, N.C. — NC State wide receiver Kelvin Harmon has announced that he will forego his final year of eligibility and enter his name in the 2019 NFL draft.
“I have prayed and discussed the path forward with my family and we have decided that it is time for me to proceed to the next chapter in my football life,” said Harmon, a first-team All-ACC choice. “That chapter will be playing professional football in the National Football League.
To this end, I am relinquishing my college eligibility, effective immediately, and declaring myself a professional. I am applying for entry into the 2019 NFL Draft. I will not be playing in the upcoming Gator Bowl, but my support for my teammates will go unchanged.”
“We are proud of Kelvin and all that he’s accomplished in his career,” said head coach Dave Doeren. “We wish him the best as he prepares for the next level.”
Harmon finishes his Wolfpack career with 177 career receptions for 2,665 yards – marks that rank fourth and third in school history respectively. His 1,186 yards in 2018 ranks fourth in school history for a single season.
“The past three years has been the greatest experience of my life,” said Harmon. “When I was recruited by Coach Doeren and Coach McDonald, I was a shy New Jersey kid. Through their nurturing, teaching and support, and that of the entire NC State Coaching and support staff, I feel I have grown into a man.
“My family and I are grateful for this support. The University has become home and will always be for me.
“Thank you all at North Carolina State University, including my faculty, the academic administration and the entire Athletic department for your support throughout this journey.”
