Nation’s top recruit planning on simply showing up at school of choice

Najee Harris is a running back prospect out of Antioch High School in Antioch, Calif. Harris isn’t just any prospect, though. He’s the nation’s top overall recruit, according to 247Sports.

Harris is a longtime Alabama commit, but he’s been fielding interest from Michigan lately, so much that it’s currently in the air which school he’ll actually attend. So much so that it’ll stay that way until he shows up at his school of choice.

Harris is set to play in Sunday U.S. Army All-American Game (airing at 1 p.m. ET on NBC!). An early enrollee, Harris will head straight to his new campus after the game instead of returning to California. Which campus will that be? It’s a mystery.


When asked if he’d just duck interviews after the game and head to the airport and to his school of choice, he said that’s what he plans on doing. So, there will be no announcement.

Harris is still expected to enroll at Alabama, but with this unprecedented level of recruiting covert operations it’s impossible to know for sure. And that’s the point, isn’t it?
