Harold Joiner, the nation’s top-ranked high school running back prospect that was not yet attached to any program, has committed to the Auburn Tigers:
A member of the 2018 recruiting class, Joiner is actually the third running back to commit to Auburn. He’s also the program’s 22nd overall commitment for the 2018 class.
While there were several running backs ranked ahead of him, no talent at the position that was still available was ranked higher than Joiner. Furthermore, he’s widely considered one of the six best running backs in all of the 2018 class.
Joiner recently spoke about his visit with Auburn, and how it felt like a good fit for him.
“They have all the things I want with the program and education-wise. I’m just going to be looking at how I fit in there and see if I’m cool with the players. I already kinda am right now, but I want to get to know them a little more,” Joiner said coming into the visit.
A 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds beast, this certainly puts the Tigers in a great position moving forward. While fans often view the SEC as the Alabama Crimson Tide and everyone else, the conference remains difficult to navigate near the top, as the Georgia Bulldogs proved this past season.
