Navy Midshipmen football Signing Day Spotlight: Jacob Harrison

National Signing Day is Wednesday for the Navy Midshipmen. Navy is projected to sign between 40 and 50 prospects. Today we'll check out Ohio (Centerville HS) quarterback Jacob Harrison.

Ohio native Jacob Harrison is a left-handed signal caller who seems to work very well under pressure.  With the graduation of Keenan Reynolds and Harrison's decommitment from Akron, you know he has to like a chance to be able to fight for the starting quarterback position.

After racking up over 3,500 total offensive yards and 30 touchdowns at Chaminade Julienne as a junior, he decided to transfer to Centerville High School in a higher division of tougher competition.   In his senior season, he passed for over 2,352 yards with 27 passing touchdowns while rushing for over 700 yards with nine rushing touchdowns.  He threw for over three touchdowns or more in six of ten games and eclipsed 100 rushing yards in two.

Harrison appears more than capable of running an option offense and more than comfortable when rolling out to hit his receivers in stride.  On multiple occasions, you see him sense incoming pressure and dodge defenders with a side step or spin move before completing a pass or scrambling for a gain.   Without a doubt he will be a tough competitor when the Midshipmen start practice in the spring.
