|Antioch (CA) Antioch RB Najee Harris (image via San Jose Mercury News)|
Antioch (CA) Antioch running back Najee Harris was offered by Michigan. Harris is a 6'1", 210 lb. prospect with offers from Cal, UCLA, and Utah, among others. He's a 247 Sports 4-star, the #5 running back, and #42 overall in his class. Harris represents Jim Harbaugh's first offer in the 2017 class, and we have seen that kind of early attention pay off in past classes, such as with Bryan Mone in the 2014 class. The running back is a sturdy north-south runner who lacks great speed but is only coming out of his sophomore year. As a sophomore this past season, he carried the ball 271 times for 2,263 yards (8.4 yards/carry) and 23 touchdowns.
OFF THE BOARD
Miamisburg (OH) Miamisburg offensive tackle Josh Myers committed to Ohio State over the weekend. Myers is one of two linemen in his class to have earned offers from Michigan (both from the Hoke regime), along with Florida's Calvin Ashley. Early on Myers is 247 Sports' #1 offensive tackle and #3 overall player, so this is a big commitment for the Buckeyes.
Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer running back Antjuan Simmons visited Michigan this past weekend. Simmons is a 6'1", 205 lb. prospect with no offers at this time, but he boasts a 4.55 forty and could play several positions at the next level. It's early yet, but he looks like one of the top few prospects in the state for 2017.
Over on Recruiting Season, I added/updated profiles for Warren De La Salle RB Allen Stritzinger, Detroit King CB Ambry Thomas, and Detroit Cass Tech WR Donovan Peoples-Jones.
