Josh Harrison is a player that will jump onto the radar this fall. A big offensive lineman from Lake City (S.C.), he has some of the best upside of any player in South Carolina, but has just started to scratch the surface of his potential.
"I just got out of working out and need to get back into football," says the 6-foot-6, 280 pounder. "I went to the (South) Carolina and Clemson camps. They said I was the best one at the camps, I have a lot of potential, and they want to come watch me play. They said they want me, and I said I could play for them. I said that to both of them, I was so excited."
While Harrison says he does not hold any offers at the moment, he does have a favorite.
"Clemson; I just have been around them for a while, and I like them a lot. I like Carolina, too, but Clemson I just like a little more."
So what is it that the colleges see in Harrison?
"I'm a real good pass blocker. I'm a good run blocker, but we don't run the ball a lot to my side. I've got quick feet and long arms, and nobody in South Carolina can pass rush me. I need to get stronger and try to become a better downfield run blocker."
Harrison has continued to improve his football skills on and off the field since he entered high school.
"When I was in the ninth grade, I was big, but I was not strong at all. By the end of my tenth grade year, I started getting stronger and started filling out in my body a little more. I started to do the things I wanted to do but could not do because my body would not let me. I have just been getting better ever since."
