Nation's No. 1 Running Back Recruit Tweets "Roll Tide" After Speaking With Nick Saban

Damien Harris of Berea, Kentucky is the No. 1 running back in the country, according to Scout, Rivals, and ESPN's recruiting rankings. Ohio State, Florida, Texas A&M, and home state Kentucky are all in on the star back, as well as a slew of other top programs, but one in particular got a shout out from Harris on Twitter today. The Madison Southern product had a conversation with Alabama head coach Nick Saban this afternoon, and dropped a "Roll Tide" on Twitter afterwards.

This may not mean anything definitive about his recruitment, but fans of the other programs on his list would have probably preferred an "O-H-I-O" or "Go Cats." Recruiting against Nick Saban is never easy.
