Hooker Taylor and prop Harrison have been rewarded with three-year contract extensions after impressing since breaking into the first-team this season.
Harrison, 20, has gone on to make six Aviva Premiership appearances, while the 21-year-old Taylor has racked up seven league games for the Sharks.
Sale boss Steve Diamond said: "It's great news that they have agreed these long-term contracts and both Tommy and Ross epitomise everything that is good about the club," declared Diamond, who has also opened contract talks with a number of other players who will be out of contract next summer.
"They are both local lads who give everything for the club and they fit into the template of what we are trying to build here and they are the ones who have really come to the fore in recent weeks.
"I've been amazed at how well they have stepped into the side and dealt with the pressure and risen to the challenge and in fact they have inspired everybody else to up their game with the way they have played."
