Though Harrar only played basketball at Penn State, he is no stranger to the gridiron. According to Spencer Ripchik with The Daily Collegian, Harrar was originally signed to play football at Army out of high school before landing a basketball tryout at Penn State.
There’s no denying Harrar’s physique and physical mentality. He is listed at 6-foot-9 and 240 lbs. and was a beast on the interior while making 56 starts over the final two seasons of his college career.
Now, it will be interesting to see if Harrar is able to make an NFL roster.
