PROSPECT SUMMARY – TRE HARBISON III

Originally starting his career at Virginia, then head coach Mike London resigned, which led to Tre Harbison III transferring to Northern Illinois after only spending a spring in Charlottesville (2016). Harbison III eventually transferred to Charlotte, where he wanted to finish out his career as a graduate transfer. Built like a tank, Harbison III is a strong and upright runner. Possessing plenty of contact balance to take on and fend off initial hits, he’s able to create extra opportunities as a result of his frame. Stuck in neutral quite often, he’s a one-speed runner that can create some explosive plays when given a free runway to build up momentum. Harbison III is a liability in the passing game because of his inability to catch out of the backfield. 

Ideal Role: Developmental No. 3 RB.

Scheme Fit: Man/Gap/Power downhill scheme.
