On Thursday, the New England Patriots reunited Damien Harris with Mac Jones as it selected Jones at No. 15 overall in the first round of the NFL Draft. Harris quickly took to Twitter to voice his excitement when the pick was made.

He and Jones were on Alabama’s 2017 national championship team and 2018 Southeastern Conference title team. Jones was a scout-team quarterback during both seasons, but Harris was the starting running back. He collected 1,000 yards rushing with 11 touchdowns in 2017.

Harris and Jones spent a lot of time together in college, and now the gang is back.
