Corner Back Dominique Harrison Commits to Oregon

Harrison is a junior college player with 3 years to play 2 after the 2013 season.

The Oregon football program picked up its fourth commitment in the 2013 class today as corner back Dominique Harrison from Contra Costa Junior College in California gave a verbal commitment to the Ducks. Scott Eklund of JCFootball.com and Harrison's coach Alonzo Carter broke the news on twitter:

Defensive back is one position where Oregon has been very aggressive early on having extended at least five offers to prep players, perhaps in anticipation of potential early departures of Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and Terrance Mitchell, as well as the impending graduation of Brian Jackson and Avery Patterson after the 2013 season. Still, Harrison's commitment comes as somewhat of a surprise as Oregon was already a favorite for several of the top prep DB prospects in the nation in Arrion Springs, Mattrell McGraw, and Budda Baker. It is thought that Oregon will take a maximum of three defensive backs in the 2013 class.

Harrison is part of a junior college team that was known for its ball-hawking ability last year. He is 5'11, 185 lbs and runs a 4.4 40 according to his head coach. Harrison, who last year led the junior college ranks in interceptions, had this to say about his abilities last fall:

"I used to play receiver in high school so the thing that comes to mind when I get an interception is to get a touchdown," Harrison said. "I can read a receiver's body language and once I get the ball and (head) up the sideline I know I can score with my speed."

Harrison is an under the radar recruit but given the staff's ability to develop defensive backs you have to trust their judgment. With three years to play two, Harrison should help ease the transition in the secondary should any underclassmen decide to enter the draft in 2014.
