It's way too early in the game to be excited, but it never hurts when a five-star running back visits your school.
That is exactly what Antioch, CA's Najee Harris did this week at the University of Kansas. KUsports.com is reporting the high school sophomore attended Jayhawk practice Monday, on the heels of a mid-March visit, and liked what he saw.
More from the article:
The fact Harris is currently a member of the 2017 high school recruiting class, should keep Jayhawk fans at the "cautiously optimistic" level, but it's still a good sign.
He actually has 20 D-I offers including Alabama, USC, Arizona, UCLA, and Michigan among others, according to 247Sports. However, the quote about Beaty has to leave KU fans thinking at the very least athletic director Sheahon Zenger made a good choice when replacing Charlie Weis this past offseason.
Offensive coordinator Rob Likens is one of the coaches recruiting Harris. He came to Lawrence after two years on the staff at Cal, which is located in Harris' home state and one of the schools to already offer the No. 4 overall running back a scholarship.
Here are some highlights from Harris' sophomore, 2014 season. There are many to be excited about, but check out his change of direction and burst of speed at the 1:20 mark.
