Why was this kid only a 3 star?

He was very underrated

Harding is going to be a head-hunter no doubt, but i think the relatively low rating might be due to coverage skills, which no doubt makes up 40% of a safety's evaluation (its probably 70% for a cornerback). He will be a monster at and around the line of scrimmage, but we will have to see how good he becomes when he drops back into coverage.

He lays some wood out on the field... I would like to see him wrap up the ball carrier instead of doing that head down dive at their legs. It's hard to get a guage on his speed, as it looks like on film that he is only jogging(doesn't have a quick leg turnover).
He's a three star because he has gotta learn how to wrap up. He's doing that same stuff that every other kid is right now and just laying a big lick but not wrapping up. He got away with it in high school, but in the SEC they will bounce off of him half of the time. Just watch this video and you'll see what he's talking about.

I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
