    Re: 2017 Najee Harris Commits to the Tide

    I'd love to have a player of his caliber, and hope he sticks.

    But it's two years out, home is 2,500 miles from Tuscaloosa, the west coast schools will hammer the distance and culture angles, and who knows if Lupoi will be on staff in 2017.

    Long way to go before Mr. Harris hits campus.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    Re: 2017 Najee Harris Commits to the Tide

    My thoughts exactly 4Q. I'm excited for the caliber of player that he is, but I would honestly be shocked if it sticks. A lot can happen in 2 years, and he is really far away. There will be a lot of West coast pressure on him.

    His highlight video is something else though. I've never seen a video from one season with that many long TD runs. He has great vision, great patience, and a huge number of moves to get where he wants to go. He didn't seem to have elite speed, but really burst. The thing that was interesting was how effortless his running style is. I'd be interested to know if his competition is stiff at all, because he looked like a man amongst boys, and all as a Sophomore.

    I hate to say it, but I agree. We've lost a couple of kids from California very recently who committed to Alabama only to change their mind. I hope we get him but it's a long time between now and February 2017 and Alabama is a long, long way from home.

    Look guys we can't be negative because a few guys decided to go else where. Towns actually worked to our advantage , we got Blake instead from California. Lane is likely gone after this year assuming we have another good year. Tosh is more likely to be here a little longer because he is learning and very very young , I think 33. I would like to have the kid that's starting at guard at usc here at bama but you don't always get everyone. It depends on the family and what they are pushing or not pushing. Robertson family is pushing education Stanford and the locals therewant him at uga. I'm sorry if I had a chance to play football at Stanford or anywhere else I would choose Stanford. That's about the only school I don't mind losing a recruit to. Their education is second to none. And objectively how can anyone argue against them?

    With all due respect no one is being negative. We are being realistic. Everyone here would be happy to see him sign with Alabama but that's nearly two years away and remember we are talking about kids. They've been known to change their mind and we've had a number of kids that have changed their mind about going to Alabama. Every school does. Demetreus Robertson just de-committed a couple of days ago. The difference for me is I don't worry about recruiting because of who our coach is. As long as CNS is at Alabama I won't concern myself with recruiting. We have the best in the business.

    I think all anyone is saying is don't get too excited over this commitment just yet. Other schools are not going to stop recruiting him. We'll see if he signs with Alabama in February 2017. Hopefully he will.

    Why don't we just enjoy the news and worry if things change?

    Negative might have been a poor choice of words ,but as moon said be excited.a difference for us is his mother has signed off on bama and he has visited twice this year from california. He will continue to recruited particularly by ucla. But parents in these cases are huge or whoever is making the decisions. Also, saloman came up with his mother yesterday as well. That's huge in his recruitment as well. He says he likely won't commit until the all star games ,but maybe that's a public thing ,where he commits to just the staff. Our qb recruiting seems to be Haskins from Maryland. Pass is likely headed to ul. He has them and auburn in his top two.

    We open 2016 against USC. The Alabama brand is national. Saban's pulled players from nearly every state. Mr. Harris obviously wants to play with the best. Welcome Najee! RTR

    We can't forget he plays a position that allows him to play early and help fight being homesick. If he was a lineman or something I would worry, but him being a RB and us being known for RB's we have more of a chance than many think when it comes to keeping him.

    Profile says he is from Antioch, CA.

    If he doesn't have a nickname, can we call him the Holy Hand Grenade?
