I think John Harrison is an Android.
it wouldn't make sense that an android could make it through Starfleet without being found out.
It happened once in TOS. Norman the android from the episode "I, Mudd" somehow made it aboard the Enterprise as a red shirt and took over the ship.
There is no reason to believe that Norman was a member of Starfleet, but instead just someone who snuck on the ship wearing a uniform. Norman was impersonating being a member of Starfleet. Abrams has very much implied that John Harrison is in fact a member of Starfleet, and comes from Starfleet. John Harrison is NOT impersonating being a member of Starfleet.

Quote from JJ Abrams about John Harrison:
His name is John Harrison and he is sort of an average – that is what makes him so scary – he is just an average guy who works in an organization called Starfleet, and he turns against the group because he has got this back-story and this kind of amazing secret agenda.
