Antioch High School football star Najee Harris has orally committed to the University of Alabama, his mother, Tianna Hicks, confirmed early Monday afternoon.
Harris, a 6-foot-2, 209-pound running back, rushed for 2,263 yards, averaged 205.7 yards per game, and scored 23 touchdowns during his fantastic sophomore season in 2014. He broke the school record for rushing yards in a game with 371 on 30 carries despite not playing the last six minutes of a 50-26 North Coast Section Division I first-round playoff game.
Harris has a five-star rating and is ranked as the top California high school running back and fourth nationally from the 2017 class according to rivals.com. Cal, Michigan, Oklahoma State, TCU, UCLA and USC are among the many schools besides Alabama that have made a scholarship offer to Harris, according to espn.com.
Hicks confirmed that Harris made his decision during an unofficial visit to Alabama for the team’s A-Day game.
