Jan 11 2018
AL.com is reporting that Damien Harris is passing on the National Football League and will play for Alabama for his senior season.
In the championship game, Harris faced off against Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, two backs who also made a decision to come back for their senior seasons this year and ultimately led Georgia to the SEC championship and title game in Atlanta.
The expectation here is that Ridley and SMU's Courtland Sutton will vie to be the first receiver off the board when the 2018 NFL Draft comes calling in April.
In those games he caught 15 passes for 82 yards and a touchdown.
