The 6-foot-8 Harrell was awarded the inaugural Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year in college basketball during the ESPN College Basketball Awards Show in Los Angeles.
Harrell, who turned pro after finishing his junior season, was second on the team and eighth in the ACC at 15.7 points a game and was second in the ACC with 9.2 rebounds. He helped the Cardinals to an Elite Eight finish.
Harrell finished the season hitting 56.6 percent from the field and was a second-team All-ACC performer. He had 80 dunks as a junior and finished his career with a school-record 221 dunks and scored double-figures in 40 of his last 47 games.
He is projected as a first-round pick in the NBA Draft.
