Najee Harris, No. 1 Recruit In 2017, Could Be Headed To Michigan

Is Michigan going to land the country's No. 1 recruit?

Najee Harris, a five-star running back and the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2017 class, per 247Sports' Composite Rankings, will reportedly make his decision by the end of the Army All-American Game this weekend.

The 6-foot-3, 226-pound running back is technically a Crimson Tide commit, but he says that he's undecided, and it appears that the Wolverines might now be the favorite to land him.

If Michigan lands Harris, Jim Harbaugh will have reeled in the country's No. 1 recruit two years in a row. Last year, the Wolverines got a commitment from five-star defensive lineman Rashan Gary, 2016's No. 1 overall recruit.
