View Full Profile's waiver was granted and he'll be able to play for us in 2012-13. Great news for the Tigers this Thursday a.m.
From Yahoo! Sports:
Brownell had finished as the runner-up to BYU coach Dave Rose in Harrison's original recruitment, so he already had a relationship with the Greenwood, S.C., native. Since Clemson had a vacant scholarship and playing time available at wing due to the broken leg top freshman Jaron Blossomgame sustained in April and the likely season-ending torn Achilles tendon Devin Coleman suffered in July, Brownell decided Harrison was worth the risk.
"Knowing the family and knowing Damarcus, that was a big part of me going ahead and giving him a scholarship without knowing if he's going to play or not," Brownell said last month. "He's an athletic wing player with a good skill set who can play multiple positions. I've followed him enough to know that he fits what we do."
The gamble could pay off in a big way for Clemson now that Harrison will be eligible to play next season.
