Harrison Poole flies under many people’s radars when it comes to recruiting, but he is an athlete that schools should be on the lookout for at the football factory known as Camden County. Standing at 5-foot-11 and weighing 180 pounds, the junior possesses surprising strength to go along with above-average speed and great play-making ability making him a considerable threat on both sides of the ball for the Wildcats.
His primary time is spent at cornerback, where he logged 30 total tackles with three pass break-ups this past season. He has also seen time at running back, rushing for 269 yards and scoring three touchdowns. He has received a small amount of interest from Tennessee, Nebraska and Georgia Tech among other schools, but has showcased his skill at various combines including the National Underclassmen event and Under Armour Combine. It was at the NUC event where he was electronically timed at a 4.63 40-yard dash.
The two-way player’s speed athletic ability is displayed on the track team, where he participates in the 110-meter hurdles, long jump, as well as the triple jump. Poole carries a shy, quiet demeanor that does not make him standout in a crowd, but coaches and fellow defensive backs are aware of the strong work ethic, which is shown through his efforts in the weight room.
Poole is one of just nine current players on Camden County to achieve “Ultra-Cat” status, the team’s highest honor, based on points earned through performance in certain lifts. This past fall, the multi-sport athlete logged a 285-pound bench press, 500-pound squat, as well as a 300-pound power clean, all personal bests.
