First off, Harrell plays basketball with a lot of passion and power. He is very athletic and provides a huge spark whenever he steps on the court. I’d say he’s a modern day Dennis Rodman, but a little bit more athletic. I love the way he rebounds the ball and plays exceptional post defense. He needs to work on his free throws since he only shoots 59.4 percent from the line, but I’d say he’s a first round pick come June. Where in the first round is another story.
