Harris is as athletic and quick as billed, but he's still adjusting to the tempo of head coach Bobby Petrino's practices, as well as improving his understanding of defensive coordinator Mike Cassity's defense.
Sanders, who appeared in 10 games last year, is doing a commendable performing as the quarterback for the defense. When he is on the sideline, he's often discussing alignments with fellow linebackers Brandon Johnson and Abe Brown.
On Monday, he split time with Abe Brown and filled the role well. He has a better understanding of the defense and seem's to read the offense even better.
After reporting to practice an hour prior to the veterans for the first two days of fall camp, the program's newest members started Monday with the upperclassmen. Following practice, Coach Petrino kept the freshmen, transfers and a few others on the field for a few minutes of skellie action.
