The big question is what position will Harrell play in college? As a runner he's a smaller James Wilder. Harrell can run with power. He also shows good vision and balance. Harrell is a one cut and go guy that has good speed but not great speed. If he plays defense it's likely as a strong safety. Defensively, he's a physical tackler who's at his best at or near the line of scrimmage. Harrell could also develop into a linebacker. Jamie Newberg

Harrell finished with 108 tackles, 2.5 sacks, one interception and two caused fumbles as a junior. He also rushed for 616 yards and six scores.
