High School: Vacaville HS
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 190 lbs

Drafted in the 9th round (278th overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2022 (signed for $122,500)
Harrison won the Big West Conference freshman pitcher of the year award in 2021 after he led the conference in saves and earned an invitation to pitch for USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team. He entered the 2022 season considered one of the best college relievers in the nation, but he scuffled to a 6.15 ERA with declining strikeout and walk rates. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Harrison flashes potent stuff but is inconsistent. At his best, he sits 94-96 mph on his fastball with late carry through the strike zone, flashes an average changeup that gets swings and misses and shows a good feel for landing his slider for strikes. At others, he drops to 90-91 mph and can't command his slider at all, giving him only his changeup to work with. Harrison is a good athlete but tends to spin out of his delivery, leading to bouts of inconsistent control. He is a fiery competitor who stands up for his teammates. Harrison has a chance to be a solid middle reliever in pro ball, but only if he can more consistently pitch with his best stuff. He has a chance to be taken on the draft's second day.
