Crimson Tide wide receiver Calvin Ridley announced his intentions to enter the 2018 National Football League draft Wednesday afternoon.

Damien Harris, the star running back who played at Madison Southern High School, will return for his senior season at the University of Alabama and forego entering the 2018 NFL Draft.

Ridley finishes his Crimson Tide career among the program's all-time receiving leaders, including ranking second in touchdown receptions (19) following his game-tying score in Monday's championship game, breaking a tie with Muscle Shoals' Dennis Homan.

Harris rushed for 1,000 yards and 11 TDs as a junior and has won two national titles while at Alabama.

In those games he caught 15 passes for 82 yards and a touchdown. Kiper ranks Harris as the No. 5 draft-eligible running back.

Scarbrough has dealt with a number of injuries during his career, which has seen him rush for 1,512 yards in three seasons. Yes, Alabama's cupboard is stacked full of talent at the receiver position, and with the emergence of freshman QB Tua Tagovailoa, the ball will likely be spread out more in the passing game, assuming he's the guy moving forward at the position.
