Five-star running back Najee Harris could potentially flip his commitment from Alabama to Michigan, and the Campus Insiders staff gave their predictions on where the nation’s No. 1 player will end up. 


When he spoke with Campus Insiders, Najee Harris refused to answer any questions regarding his current commitment to Alabama and whether or not a flip to Michigan was possible.

There are many who believe the nation’s No. 1 running back and No. 1 overall player is actually saying more by saying less. He’s been committed to Alabama since April of 2015, but the Wolverines have made a huge push in the past few months. Now, it’s actually a sprint to the finish line for his pledge.

However, Harris is set to be an early enrollee and be on campus — either in Ann Arbor or Tuscaloosa — next month. So, if he is going to flip his commitment, a decision will have to come soon — as in the next couple of weeks soon.

The Campus Insiders staff got together to give their predictions for where the 5-star running back will end up playing college football.

Robert Judin

He’s been committed to Alabama since April of 2015, and I would have never thought it was possible before these last couple of months. But Michigan has made a huge push for him, and I truly believe he’s going to flip his commitment from the Crimson Tide to the Wolverines.

His official visit to Ann Arbor went great. His mom was very impressed by the staff and Jim Harbaugh. And I think it isn’t a coincidence that Anthony McFarland has Alabama in his top three schools. I believe Harris will flip to Michigan — soon, too, because he’s an early enrollee — and McFarland will take his spot in the Tide’s 2017 recruiting class.

Brian Stultz

The answer is no. Michigan has a lot of recruiting momentum, but Alabama is still Alabama, and Nick Saban is still the king no matter how highly Jim Harbaugh thinks of himself. It is the Crimson Tide that are the premier program in the nation, not the Wolverines.

Kurt Schwerman

I’ve got him ending up in Ann Arbor. Call me crazy, but these guys love to look good on the field, and with Michigan reportedly getting a new/updated uniform next year, that could put them over the top in this instance. People joke around about uniforms coming into play when kids select a school to sign with, but it’s not much of a joking matter these days. The Wolverines being the first program to wear Jumpman presents a branding opportunity not many other teams – not even the Tide – can offer.

Jonathan Bass

Harris recently spoke with Campus Insiders as part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl press junket, and while he wasn’t terribly loquacious on any subject, he was particularly tight-lipped regarding any questions about Alabama or Michigan. The dismissiveness in his voice, whenever questioned about the two programs, was particularly eyebrow-raising. It gave off an air that, if nothing else, the young man was wrestling with a very difficult decision, full-well knowing that he’d be a pariah to one group of fans. Ultimately, I think Harris flips to the Wolverines; he’s just waiting until the 11th hour to prevent the sycophants from hounding him to reconsider.
