Brother of nation’s No. 1 recruit thinks one school is the only option 247Sports

Najee Harris is in high demand and with good reason. The nation’s top recruit has a chance to make both an immediate and lasting impact at the college level given the position that he plays and the dynamic running back is also taking a unique path when it comes to his recruiting. Harris reportedly will not announce his college decision publicly, rather simply choosing his destination and reporting to campus without (more) fanfare.

However, that did not stop his brother, Malachi, from speaking out as to what he thinks Najee should do in the coming days, weeks, months and years.

This type of proclamation is certainly music to the ears of Jim Harbaugh and his staff, as Michigan is considered the biggest threat to Alabama when it comes to landing Harris’ commitment. The powerful running back has been verbally committed to the Crimson Tide for more than 18 months, but Harbaugh has been quite active in presenting a pitch to Harris and it might end up working out for the Wolverines.

At this stage, everything with regard to Najee Harris and “projecting” his college choice is guess work but it looks like a two-horse race between Michigan and Alabama. You would be hard pressed to find a more intriguing head-to-head battle nationally and both Harbaugh and Nick Saban will be holding their breath until Harris enrolls.
