Alabama’s defensive captain is going to profit off his likeness this season.

Christian Harris has signed with the Ballengee Marketing Group to capitalize on NIL opportunities. The news was announced on Monday night via Twitter as he joins Phidarian Mathis, DeMarcco Hellams, Christopher Allen, Malachi Moore, and Josh Jobe for players on defense with endorsements. Harris, a native of Baton Rouge, La., enters his junior season with Alabama this fall.

He posted 79 tackles in 2020 and totaled seven tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, six quarterback hurries, two pass breakups, and one interception.

The 6-foot-2, 232-pounder will anchor the Crimson Tide from his inside linebacker position.

Harris is regarded as a potential early-round draft pick for 2022. He expects to perform well and turn in an outstanding season under Nick Saban.
