He certainly had no intentions of making his college choice when he came to Kentucky over the weekend to watch UK's Blue-White Game.
"I had no clue I was going to make this decision when I went to Kentucky," said Harrison, a defensive back from Columbia, S.C. "But I went up there and really liked the campus and coaches, especially coach (Joker) Phillips. They
have a great coaching staff. I met a lot of players and they made me feel like I was right at home. Plus, they are looking for people to play my position.
"I already had Kentucky No. 1 on my list. I just decided I was ready to commit and coach (Rich) Brooks got real excited. He was fired up and happy that I wanted to come."
Harrison runs the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds. More importantly, he'll bring the aggressive attitude to Kentucky that the UK defense needs to compete in the Southeastern Conference.
"I play a lot of press man-to-man coverage and try to get physical with receivers to get them out of their game," Harrison said. "I have good enough speed that if I get beat, I can still recover and make a play on the ball. I also like to talk on the field. A lot of players don't like that. But I think I can back up my talk and make plays."
He's projected as a safety in college, but also played some cornerback last season when he had 81 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.
Harrison says he'll have a busy summer. He scheduled to attend a Nike camp as well as the U.S. Army combine. He's also going to camps at Clemson, Georgia Tech and South Carolina as well as to several passing tournaments.
Any chance he might change his mind about Kentucky?
"I don't think they could do anything to get me to change my mind. I really like Kentucky. I'll probably make a couple of trips up there this summer. But I'm going to Kentucky," Harrison said.
