DE Zach Harrison (Official Thread)

    Interested in what makes them different players. Does Harrison end up playing SSE. And is he straight line faster, but not as quick?

    It's completely absurd. I had said we'd never see a DE as talented as Joey Bosa again. Then Nick Bosa happened. And now Chase Young, who I doubt even know that your can make a Madden talent level 100 better than. If Zach is in the same hemisphere as Chase Young, I'll be ecstatic. And I do think he will be, he's shown a lot.

    Think the biggest difference is that Young has more reach and a little more basic understanding of the game. Chase also has phenomenal hand placement and a variety of moves, but Zach can develop that over time. I think the athleticism is right on par though.

    When I watch Chase, the thing that sticks out vs others is his ‘get off’. He’s Almost a full step in before the tackle moves. It’s insane. Seems like a quickness thing - hope Zach can develop it.

    I think Harrison switched sides and rotates with JJB. Then with Cooper and smith rotating on the other side we are in great shape to not loose a beat.
    Im super high on cooper and think being healthy and 6 years with Johnson can make him first round material.

    Cooper May be in Cornels spot especially on passing downs.

    Highly doubt that they move Cooper inside. He's purely a DE.

    2. Ohio State Buckeyes: DE Zach Harrison

    Harrison was a five-star recruit in the 2019 recruiting class, and Ohio State fought off Michigan to land the 6-foot-6, 255-pound defensive end. Harrison had the opportunity to learn from Chase Young this season but got a chance to start when Young was suspended late in the season. Harrison took the opportunity and finished with 3.5 sacks and five tackles for loss, with 24 total tackles on the season. With Young off to the NFL, Harrison will be counted on even more in 2020 and could be the next great defensive end in a long line of excellent linemen to come through Ohio State. -- Tom VanHaaren

    Dude very well might end up playing at 6'6" 275 before he's gone to the NFL.

    He's really thin at 255 so hopefully he can put on another 15 before this coming season.

    Ohio State 2019 Class Report — DE Zach Harrison


    Zach Harrison came to Ohio State from nearby Lewis Center, Ohio where he was a 5-star prospect and the No. 4 defensive end in the nation. Ranked the No. 12 prospect in the 2019 class overall, Harrison signed with Ohio State over offers from Michigan, Penn State, Alabama, and every other school in the nation with scholarship capabilities.

    2019 Season

    Zach Harrison, a 6-foot-6 and 255-pound defensive end, was the second member of the 2019 recruiting class to lose his black stripe, behind receiver Garrett Wilson. Early enrollees, Harrison and Wilson both lived in rarefied air by having their black stripes removed during the spring of their respective freshman seasons.

    “Zach Harrison is, number one, great character. That’s the first thing,” co-defensive coordinator Greg Mattison said last winter. “Number two, he’s an unbelievable athlete. To be that big and that strong and everything like that. And then watching, like we had mat drills today and just watching him in the weight room. He’s everything you thought when you recruited him. I mean, he’s a special athlete.”

    Seen as a raw prospect when he signed, Harrison excelled and grew every step of the way during his freshman year. And even with a fairly deep group of defensive ends, Harrison found himself on the field plenty. He was part of the defensive end rotation from the outset, and even got his first career start against Maryland.

    For the season, Harrison played in every game and finished with 24 tackles, 5.0 tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks.

    So Now What For Zach Harrison?

    I expect a pretty big year for Zach. I think he was much further along than anyone expected him to be this year and the talent is ridiculous. Feeling real good about a rotation of Harrison, Cooper, T. Smith and Friday, it's not like teams can double Harrison.
