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.
Named First Team All-Big 12 and earned Honorable Mention All-America honors by AP as a junior.

Posted 25 career double-doubles, two career triple-doubles, and blocked four or more shots in 25 games.
