Harvey is rated by 247Sports as the 81st-best defensive end and 115th-best prospect from California in the '21 recruiting cycle.
He became the 12th defensive commit in Arizona's 2021 recruiting class and the fifth defensive lineman, joining three-star New Orleans edge rusher Ja'Marian Peterson, three-star Houston defensive end Kevon Garcia, Riverside Community College defensive end Alex Navarro-Silva and San Francisco defensive tackle Evan Branch-Haynes.
Arizona now has 19 commits for its '21 recruiting class, which is ranked sixth in the Pac-12 by 247Sports.
UA picked up all of its commits after May 5. In June and July, the Wildcats received 15 commitments.
