The Black Cats have given the 19-year-old until the end of the 2012-13 season, following his recent trial at the Academy of Light.
Harrison played under Craig Liddle at Darlington before becoming a free agent when the club folded.
He made 10 appearances for the Quakers in the Conference Premier last season, making his debut in a 0-0 draw with Forest Green in December 2011.
Coach Kevin Ball said: "Scott was recommended to us and we gave him an opportunity to come in.
"We see in him a lad giving all the intentions of wanting to work at his game and we feel he warrants a contract until the end of the season, which we were delighted to offer him."
