AS A REDSHIRT SENIOR (2011-12): Harrison completed his Razorback career with another solid season for head coach Robert Cox. Making spot starts during the dual season, Harrison compiled an 8-5 record in singles and an 8-6 record in doubles after teaming up with Victor Hoang, Manfred Jeske and Hall Fess. The majority of Harrison's wins came during the fall season where he tallied five victories in singles, but he also saw his first SEC action when he and Hoang played doubles together at the No. 3 spot against the University of Georgia. Harrison finished the year on a five-match winning streak including a match clinching victory over Conner Edwards of UMKC, 7-6(5), 6-3, which was also on his birthday. Harrison's impact was felt off the court in a major way as he earned his second straight spot on the SEC Community Service Team. Harrison was a major part of the Northwest Arkansas community during his senior season attending multiple events including the Sweat Hawgs and Book Hogs programs. Both are aimed at elementary school children in hopes of motivating them to be active and also read, respectively. 

AS A SENIOR (2010-11): Harrison played in 19 matches for the Razorbacks. Compiling an overall record of 11-8, eight of those wins came during the fall season. His best outing was at the Miami Quad Invite where he won three of his four matches played. In the spring, Harrison was 3-0 with wins coming at the Nos. 3, 5 and 6 spot. Each of those wins were won in straight sets. 

AS A JUNIOR (2009-10): Taj Harrison red shirted for the 2009-2010 Season.

PRIOR TO ARKANSAS: Harrison attended Johnson County CC in Overland Park, Kan., before joining the Razorbacks. As a freshman, Harrison made an immediate impact for the Cavaliers, playing at the No. 1 position for the entire season in singles and doubles. Harrison was runner-up at the Region VI and Kansas Jayhawk Conference championships. Harrison earned a No. 15 ranking in the ITA JUCO men's tennis rankings.

A strong doubles competitor, Harrison and partner Dylan Gatton won the 2007 Wilson/ITA Central Regional Championship, advancing to the 2007 ITA National Small College Championships where they posted a seventh-place finish. The pair earned a No. 5 ranking in the ITA JUCO men's tennis rankings in fall 2007.

HIGH SCHOOL:  While attending Bishop Miege High School, Harrison was the Kansas 5A state singles champion his senior year.  He earned Kansas City Star All-Metro and All-Eastern Kansas League athletic honors. As a senior, he finished the season with a singles record of 26-5. He was the Class 2 state doubles champion in 2004 and 2005. 

PERSONAL: Born March 20, 1989, Harrison is the son of Robert Harrison and Tajsheena Ross-Harrison. He has two brothers, Marlon and Malcom. His brother Marlon played tennis for Rust College and his brother Malcolm was his teammate at Johnson County CC.
