Damien Harris Will Stay At Alabama

Damien Harris Will Stay At Alabama

Less than 48 hours after Alabama's dramatic win over Georgia in the national championship game, three players for the Crimson Tide announced their intention to enter the NFL Draft.

One day after a video surfaced that put Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough, a former IMG Academy star, in the national spotlight for yelling a disparaging remark about President Donald Trump, the junior has reportedly declared for the NFL Draft.

Damien Harris is coming off of his second straight 1,000 yard campaign. He had 63 catches for 967 yards while no other wide receiver caught more than 14 balls. He finished third on Alabama's all-time career receiving list, only trailing Amari Cooper and D.J. Hall.

"Having been thoroughly prepared for that next step", he wrote, "I am truly ready". Ridley's 7-yard touchdown catch with 3:49 left tied the title game against Georgia and Alabama won 26-23 in overtime.

Trump Delays Fake News Awards
Trump had promised to hold the mock awards show to castigate mainstream news organizations for their coverage of his presidency. In November, he tweeted about a competition among news networks for the "Fake News Trophy", excluding the Fox News.

He is ranked as the No. 5 draft-eligible running back by Kiper.

Alabama's second-leading WR in 2017 was freshman Jerry Jeudy, catching 14 passes for 264 yards and two TDs.

The Alabama junior receiver will forgo his final season of college eligibility and enter the 2018 National Football League draft, Ridley announced on Twitter.
