Alabama underclassmen (Payne, Ridley, Scarbrough) going pro, but Damien Harris is staying

Unanimous All-American junior defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick highlighted the Crimson Tide's quartet of early entrants that included fellow safety Ronnie Harrison, running back Bo Scarbrough and defensive tackle Da'Ron Payne. Harrison certainly puts his big frame to use as he led the Tide in tackles in 2017 with 74, which is particularly impressive considering the front seven he was playing behind.

Leading rusher Damien Harris has made a decision to return for his senior season, according to a report from AL.com, citing unnamed sources.

The outlook looks good, to say the least.

The 5-foot-11, 221-pounder from Richmond, Ky., has chose to return for his senior season, according to multiple media outlets, including AL.com and ESPN.

Ranked No. 3 by Kiper in his draft-eligible position rankings, Payne had six tackles against Georgia in the title game and a key interception and a touchdown reception against Clemson in the Sugar Bowl. Scarbrough ran for 596 yards and eight touchdowns.

Ridley finished with 2,781 yards on 224 catches, which is second all-time for Alabama behind Cooper once again.

"I mean no one can take a piece a paper away from me, so of course I'm going to get my degree", Scarbrough said.

This was rather expected, as Ridley had very little left to prove at the collegiate level and is already on the older end of the spectrum for a receiving prospect at 23 years old. "It seems like yesterday we were in their houses recruiting them". Mother, there are just no words to tell you what you mean to my brothers and me.
