No. 1 overall recruit Najee Harris to enroll at Alabama

Sunday January 8th, 2017

Following a week of confirmed and many unconfirmed reports, the saga surrounding America's premiere college football prospect has come to an end.

Multiple source have confirmed Najee Harris is sticking with his longtime Alabama Crimson Tide commitment and will enroll in the coming week.

The five-star Antioch (Calif.) running back entered the week expecting to head to his school of choice, between Alabama, Michigan and Cal, without advance public notice. He reversed course on Saturday following his final high school performance, the 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Harris originally committed to Alabama in April 2015 before taking official visits to UCLA, Cal and Michigan in addition to a trip to Tuscaloosa in November. Should he follow through with his enrollment plans, he would mark the first No. 1 overall prospect secured by Nick Saban during his tenure with the Crimson Tide.
