Finally got some intel on Harrell from a former Thompson qb.  His first words were, "kid can sling it ". When I ask him about playing in the B1G he said, "I don't know, mid major for sure,  but not sure about Power 5 starter".  He also said he is pretty raw, but has tons of talent and is very coachable.  

First of all thanks. Second: Indiana, UNC, NW, AZ St, Duke, WVU, and Michigan... have all offered. That isn't mid major.

True, just relaying a quote.  My buddy is a pretty pragmatic guy,  and also a huge Bama fan. He's used to 5 stars, so a pretty tough grader of talent.  The potential is obviously there for Harrell.

I watched Talia Tagovailoa and Thompson play Mountain Brook in high school, and wasn't overly impressed.  There was no way he was going to start at Bama.  Harrell seems more Talia than Tua.  Nothing wrong with that, not many are Tua!

Depending on the date, I'm going to try to get to the Hoover-Thompson game this fall.  That will be a great test for him.

I would gladly take an athletic guy with an arm as a developmental player.  The depth chart is pretty deep at that position right now. 

I doubt we could land a highly ranked guy this year because of that.

Exactly. A guy might absolutely kill it at one level but there’s a gap in his measurables that either prevents his ability to translate up a level, or at least there’s a perception of that being the case.  

You could throw out names like you mentioned.   Some overcome this like Baker Mayfield.  I think he’s barely 6’0.   He was a walkon and ended up the first overall pick.  Perhaps Braden Smith and Luke Brown are in this discussion.  

You could be the junk ball pitcher who throws upper 80s and gets guys out at double A with a microscopic ERA but would get clobbered in the majors.  On the other hand, other guys have lackluster performance at one level but have ridiculous tools and put it together later.  It’s a fun yet confusing part of projecting guys.  It can lead to fun discussion for sure.   Had to mention Luke just for my friend, @IU/Butler/Notre Dame

Oh bob ….you always warm my heart through this cold stretch of no basketball .  Hope you guys are having a good start to summer.  May many fish and few bogies grace your off-season
