Alabama RB Damien Harris Will Return For His Senior Season

Alabama RB Damien Harris Will Return For His Senior Season

Fitzpatrick, safety Ronnie Harrison and tailback Bo Scarbrough announced Thursday they're skipping their senior seasons.

The Jim Thorpe and Bednarik Award victor is a projected top-10 pick. "I feel I played well enough to go high as I wanted to".

Alabama also got some unexpected good news. So it wasn't a hard decision. There are so many people to thank for the successes I have enjoyed, including faculty, staff, support staff, teammates, friends and the greatest fan base anyone could ever ask for. It's definitely been a whole lot of fun. Considering how early it is in the draft process, any of the top three receiving prospects could be the first wideout taken based on team preference, but Ridley likely has the strongest case to be the first off the board come April. "I would say, with Calvin Ridley, you're probably looking at top 15, top 20 conservatively".

Alabama has never had a running back rush for 1,000 yards in three consecutive seasons.

He tallied six tackles and generated consistent pressure in the backfield against Georgia, helping the defense hold the Bulldogs without a point in the fourth quarter while Tua Tagovailoa directed a comeback on the offensive side.

After rushing for 812 yards and 6.5 yards per carry as a sophomore, Scarbrough was not as effective this past season, rushing for 596 yards and averaging 4.8 per carry.

A five-star recruit out of Monarch, Ridley had a stellar three-year collegiate career, in which he totaled 224 receptions, 2,781 yards and 19 touchdowns.

The 5-foot-11, 221-pounder from Richmond, Ky., has chose to return for his senior season, according to multiple media outlets, including and ESPN. "That was my whole plan, coming to college and I wanted to major in criminal justice and be an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, and I'm going to pursue that dream". Ridley was big in Alabama's 26-23 win over Georgia. "It just seems like yesterday we were in their houses recruiting them".
