Alabama had never had the top ranked running back during its incredible recruiting run under Nick Saban. That was, until the Crimson Tide signed Najee Harris who also enrolled early in Tuscaloosa.

Even when FSU isn’t doing anything they are staying on the recruiting trail as they just had fellow running back Khalan Laborn earn a fifth star to join Akers in the exclusive club.
