Solid article on Damien Harris. Here's my favorite part:

Madison Southern High School running back Damien Harris, his coach and some teammates were heading home from Lexington on Interstate 75 when they were surprised to see a van swerve near their vehicle.

"We were kind of like, 'What is this guy doing?'" Harris recalled with a laugh.

A man in the van rolled down the window and began shouting Ohio State's "O-HI-O" cheer at Harris, a funny interaction for a seriously touted football prospect.

Harris has no idea how the man recognized him in traffic, but it's a sign of how famous he's become — the nation's top-ranked running back and one of its most highly coveted recruiting targets. Ohio State wants him. Alabama wants him. Kentucky wants him. Everybody wants him.

I think UK won 2 games last year (Miami Ohio and Alabama State). To say they are a program on the rise has to be taken into context.
