Harrison was named co-Big East Conference player of the year after hitting .378 with 22 steals, though his feel for hitting is more impressive than his swing and he's just an average runner. He's stronger than Campana but isn't going to have much power with wood bats. Of greater concern is Harrison's defense at second base. He made 19 errors in 59 games and doesn't turn the pivot well, and he doesn't profile at another position. He's the nephew of former big leaguer John Shelby.
