    David Harrison
    Number: 13 Height: 7-0 Weight: 280 Birthday: 8/15/82

    Scouting Report:
    Delighted a player of this size and skill level was available for the last pick of the first round, the Pacers believe Harrison will have a productive career. Unusually athletic, with excellent footwork and surprising leaping ability for a player of his bulk, Harrison needs to learn the nuances of low-post play, both offensively and defensively. Able to use his size and strength to bulldoze his way through college games, he must learn the more subtle arts of his craft to achieve similar results against the comparably big men of the NBA. How much he will play as a rookie is uncertain. With veterans Jeff Foster and Scot Pollard on hand, Harrison won't be rushed into action before he is ready.
    Career Highlights:
  • Named First Team All-Big 12 and earned Honorable Mention All-America honors by AP as a junior.
  • Finished collegiate career as the all-time leading shot-blocker in Colorado history (fourth all-time in the Big 12) with 225 rejections.
  • Finished as Colorado’s all-time career field goal percentage leader (60.2 percent), eighth all-time rebounder (707), and 13th all-time scorer (1,317).
  • Posted 25 career double-doubles, two career triple-doubles, and blocked four or more shots in 25 games.
    Five Questions:
  • What’s the most important thing a coach ever told you?
    You’ve got to work for what you want.
  • If you weren’t a pro basketball player, what pro sport would you be playing (and what position?)
    Football. Defensive end.
  • What’s your favorite charity/community memory?
    I love reading to kids. I loved the “Read To Achieve.”
  • Who is the most famous person you ever met?
    Bill Clinton.
  • What reality show would you like to participate in and why?
    America’s Top Model. I’ll be a model or a judge.
