RONNIE HARRISON | ALABAMA | FS | 6016 | 216 | 4.52E | POS: #1 | OVR: #5 | 2019
Long, fast, lean and mean, he possesses tremendous closing speed, to go along with natural football instincts and oh, he can lay the lumber too! Harrison plays with a physical tenacity that makes defensive coordinators drool and has a playmaking ability to create turnovers. He had an immediate impact as a freshman on special teams, which included a blocked punt—he also had a blocked field goal against LSU sophomore year. Harrison is an intense player, whose emotions can sometimes get the best of him but he has since matured, according to head coach Nick Saban and his teammates. “He’s picked up a leadership role,” Eddie Jackson said in September of 2016. “Holding guys accountable, especially the younger guys, letting guys follow his lead.” He will be counted on to play a key leadership role in 2017. Prior to his Alabama career, he was a high school quarterback at FSU University School in Tallahassee. An excellent open-field tackler and extremely stout against the run; able to play either safety position at the next level. With the speed of tight ends in today’s NFL, this player is the prototype kryptonite.
