Four-star athlete Christian Harris says SEC program leading the pack


Christian Harris, a four-star athlete out of the 2019 recruiting class, claims his trip to Alabama was basically the best thing since sliced-bread.

"Well, the Alabama visit was the best visit I've ever had," Harris told BamaOnLine. "I literally couldn't say anything negative about the place. They have everything I'm looking for in a school, which is a great academic program with academic support, great coaches who are willing to push you to your best potential, and a head coach who doesn't just care about football, but cares about your life and your future.

"I talked with Coach (Pete) Golding, Coach Tosh (Lupoi), and Coach (Nick) Saban and loved every bit of it. Also, I know if I got there, they can help me with fulfilling my dream which is to play in the NFL. They have the best program in college football for that. I enjoyed my time there today and plan on coming in the spring for sure to see some of the practices."

According to 247Sports, Harris is rated the No. 23 athlete and the No. 268 overall player in the country.

BamaOnLine asked if Alabama was currently slotted at his top choice, and the talented young man said yes.
