Coach Matt Limegrover's Take:
"Jamel Harbison is may be one of the most electrifying players that we've recruited this year. We felt like there was a need to have playmakers.
"The young guys that we have already will step up but to get some guys that when they touch the football special things are going to happen. When you watched Jamel's highlight tape you know he knows what to do with the football.
"He's a guy that could play a couple different positions. We'll probably play him a lot in the slot, try and get him the ball on some screens and different things like that. He's a guy that physically he's a game-ready guy because he's very mature physically.
"He's a guy we needed, some electricity, and I think he's a guy that can provide it."
