Drafted in the 4th round (112th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2017 (signed for $477,800)
The younger brother of Chipola (Fla.) righthander Bowden Francis, Harrison could also be drafted this year. He showed a quick arm and an upper 80s fastball in the beginning of the 2016 summer, but added strength and blossomed this spring, reaching the mid-to-upper 90s. He has a max effort delivery with a long arm swing and a severe head whack, and he can lose his command and things can snowball on him quickly, but when he's right he can be dominant. His best offspeed pitch is his low 80s changeup, which some scouts grade as a future above-average pitch, and he flashes occasional feel for an upper 70s breaking ball, which grades as below-average. He is committed to Chipola, but could be in play as a signable, young power arm.
