Notre Dame's Move Upsets Local Recruits (registration-dodging Google cache)

This post is interesting:

Brandon Harrison is the starting running back and the starting strong safety who is going to Notre Dame and will probably contribute immediately next year in South Bend as a cornerback. He has legitimately been clocked at a 4.25 at Nike's camp at Ohio State earlier this year. In the last 5 game since star runningback Javon Ringer was hurt and Brandon has assumed the main running back role, he has amassed 619 yards on around 60 carries for an average of around 10 yards per carry and scored 6 TD's on the ground, while also scoring four through the air.

To give you a slight idea of the impact that Brandon can have on a game, look no further than last week's matchup with Alter:

Rushing: 14-142, 1 TD (77)
Receiving: 4-65, 3 TD's
Defense: 2 INT's, at least 10-12 tackles
Return: He didn't touch the ball on a return from a kick, which actually had a positive impact. Alter was so scared to kick it deep to him that they kept squibbing the ball to someone else, which allowed CJ to routinely start from at least their own 40 on the majority of the drives.

So this is the type of player who will be in the position to make numerous plays from various locations on the football field, and he is not the only one! If you look at the All-SW Ohio teams, you will see quite a few Eagles on the 1st and 2nd Teams!

King's Unbeaten Run Finished by CJ:
Kings (12-1) led 21-14 late in the third period before two momentum-changing interceptions. Chaminade's Brandon Harrison returned an interception 45 yards for a touchdown to make it 21-20, then picked off another pass on the next play from scrimmage.
Harrison starts at RB, too:
CINCY VS. DAYTON: Chaminade-Julienne might not be what it was before losing all-state tailback and Mr. Football candidate Javon Ringer. But the Dayton power still took a 7-1 record into their battle with two-time defending Division I state champ Cincinnati Elder. The Panthers, seeming to get revved up for what has been their time of year lately, overwhelmed C-J to the tune of a 48-14 trouncing that few likely saw coming. With the win, Elder upped its record to 6-3 and probably sealed a playoff spot that looked in jeopardy a couple weeks ago. Nick Zeiser rushed for 95 yards and three touchdowns and threw for a TD on a gadget play to lead the Panthers. Ringer’s replacement, Brandon Harrison, ran for 109 yards for C-J. The Eagles may have outplayed the Panthers in the early going, and held a 7-3 lead at one point. Mistakes proved costly, though; a blocked punt and an interception led to 14 Elder points and a 21-7 Panther lead at halftime. Elder then scored on all four of its second-half possessions.
