5-Star Running Back Cam Akers Narrows Decision To 6 Schools

Cam Akers released an important announcement on his Twitter.

Cam Akers, a 5-foot-11, 213-pound running back prospect out of Clinton, Miss., revealed the six potential teams he could commit to. The star running back took to Twitter with a special announcement video.

In the video, Akers reveals when he will announce his commitment and reveals a new top six. Akers previously had Ohio State in the mix, but the Buckeyes seem to have fallen out of favor with the five-star recruit. The six schools on Akers' list are Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, and Tennessee.

Alabama already sealed a commitment from the No. 1 running back in the class of 2017, Najee Harris.

According to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings, Akers, the No. 2 RB and No. 4 player overall in the 2017 class. Florida State is the current favorite to land Akers, according to 247Sports' Crystal Ball Prediction. With Dalvin Cook most likely headed to the NFL, the Seminoles could use a top-tier back.
