While former head coach Steve Spurrier was perhaps best known for churning out highly drafted (if minimally successful) quarterbacks and receivers into the NFL during his time with the Gators, his program also produced a number of offensive linemen. Offensive linemen from Florida were a relative rarity during Ron Zook's time as head coach and, with the notable exception of the Pouncey twins, there were surprisingly few drafted during Urban Meyer's time at the helm, as well. Of course, the Steelers' second round pick in 2011 (OT Marcus Gilbert) was recruited by him and so was Harrison, who could prove to be one of the top interior offensive linemen in the conference this season. Harrison redshirted in 2009 but emerged as a valuable reserve a year later, seeing action in all 13 games and earning the start at left guard against Penn State in the Outback Bowl. He started another game at left guard last season (South Carolina) but otherwise manned the center position for Florida, earning starts in all 13 games. Having proven capable of handling snapping responsibilities out of the shotgun as well as the typical center exchange, Harrison is expected to remain inside at the pivot this season.
His size, strength, surprising agility and previous experience at left guard, however, is an indication that he'd be able to handle any of the three interior positions. Harison is quick off the snap and plays with good leverage and power. He might be the least likely prospect for the Gators to earn significant hype (due to his position) but with the Pouncey's fresh in their memories, Harrison certainly won't be overlooked by pro scouts.--Rob Rang
