Minkah Fitzpatrick, Ronnie Harrison join Bama teammates in entering draft

The big surprise returner was junior running back and two-time 1,000-yard rusher Damien Harris, who reportedly chose to return to Alabama for his senior season.

Matt Zenitz of AL.com first reported Harris' return to the Crimson Tide, which defeated Georgia on Monday night for the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Former Monarch star receiver Calvin Ridley declared for the NFL draft on Wednesday, two days after capping his junior year with a second national title in three years at Alabama.

He tallied six tackles and generated consistent pressure in the backfield against Georgia, helping the defense hold the Bulldogs without a point in the fourth quarter while Tua Tagovailoa directed a comeback on the offensive side. Like Ridley, he is expected to go in the first round, though likely in the second half of the round.

Another standout, running back Damien Harris, will forgo the draft and come back for his senior season, according to the website. All five of those players are juniors, with Barkley, Guice and Jones having announced they are turning pro. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has him as the No. 1 draft-eligible wideout.

Multiple Alabama players including Minkah Fitzpatrick have yet to announce their draft intentions. Scarbrough is a big man (6-2, 230 pounds) with good speed, and he definitely has an upside as a downhill runner; he also was the Tide's second-leading receiver this season. After the Crimson Tide's win, UCF put a billboard up in Tuscaloosa challenging Alabama to a home-and-home series.
