Alabama Leading Rusher Damien Harris To Return For Senior Season

Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough leaving school early, headed to NFL, source says Crimson Tide's Ridley declares for NFL Draft
Lucia Summers | 11 January, 2018, 03:14

Crimson Tide wide receiver Calvin Ridley announced his intentions to enter the 2018 National Football League draft Wednesday afternoon.

Ridley finishes his Crimson Tide career among the all-time receiving leaders in program history, including ranking second in career touchdown receptions with 19 touchdowns following his game-tying score in Monday's championship game, breaking a tie with Muscle Shoals' own Dennis Homan.

"Having been thoroughly prepared for that next step", he wrote, "I am truly ready".

Harris rushed for 1,000 yards and 11 TDs as a junior and has won two national titles while at Alabama. Coach Saban, thank you for building winning football teams by turning good players into great ones, and talented boys into successful men with a objective. He also caught 17 passes for 109 yards.

Mazda, Toyota select Alabama for new U.S. auto manufacturing plant
US new vehicle sales fell 2 percent in 2017, after hitting a record high in 2016, and are expected to fall further in 2018. Mazda and Toyota said they still need approvals and authorization by antitrust agencies for the new joint venture.

CBSSports.com had Harris ranked as the 35th best prospect in the NFL Draft - a projection just outside of the first round - and as the fifth-best running back.

Scarbrough averaged 5.7 yards per carry over his three years at Alabama.

Considered by most to be the top receiver in the class, Ridley's numbers at Bama were directly impacted by the team's run-first offense. Still, if Ridley has indeed reached his proverbial ceiling, the finished product looks like an National Football League receiver who will have a solid career for years to come.
