Palmyra wide receiver Kelvin Harmon, one of the most productive players in South Jersey football history, is back in the market for a college.

Harmon on Thursday night de-committed from South Carolina, citing on-going changes in the football program in the wake of the retirement of former coach Steve Spurrier.

Harmon declined to comment on Friday but indicated that he will consider the five other schools that were in his top six when he committed to South Carolina in November: Rutgers, Temple, West Virginia, North Carolina and North Carolina State.

Expect a strong recruiting push for Rutgers under new coach Chris Ash as well as Temple, which has several connections with Harmon.

Harmon said Friday he planned to decline comment on his recruiting until National Signing Day, which is Feb. 3.

Harmon is regarded as a four-star recruit by

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Harmon put together sensational seasons as a junior and senior for Palmyra.

In helping the Panthers to a combined record of 19-4 in those two seasons, Harmon caught 30 touchdown passes and went over 1,000 yards in both seasons.

As  senior, Harmon caught 66 passes for 1,111 yards and 14 touchdowns.

He finished his career with 160 receptions for 2,650 yards and 36 touchdown catches -- ranking third in South Jersey history in all three categories.
