No. 1 RB Najee Harris shines at Future 50

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Some of the top junior football prospects in America traveled to the ESPN Wide World of Sports for a one-day camp put on by Under Armour. Few shined more than five-star Alabama commitment Najee Harris.

It's no secret that five-star Antioch (Calif.) junior Najee Harris is very good. He has gaudy highlights, offers from coast to coast and is already the No. 1 player in the West region on Scout. 

But the versatile talent, tabbed as the No. 1 RB in America's class of 2017, wowed in front of spectators at yet another event Friday. This was the Future 50 event in Orlando, among some of the top-ranked underclassmen nationally. 

Doing it as a running back and at wide receiver which included a one-handed catch (video above), Harris continued the conversation as to whether or not he's the top overall 2017 prospect.

"I love it. It's competition, I wish there was more days I can compete," he said with a smile following the event. "There was more stuff I wanted to do to get better. I can better with everything, that's why I like going to things like this. It's humbling."

The longtime Alabama Crimson Tide commitment remains a hot commodity across the country in the meantime. It will result in upcoming trips to USCOhio StateGeorgiaMississippi and Miami (Fl), among others.

Many have been consistent with contact, including the defending SEC champs.

"I'm talking to Tosh (Lupoi) almost every day. They keep me updated on how they're doing and what they're doing," Harris said.

With fellow elites, he was able to watch UA advance to the national championship game on Thursday night. 

"They're defense is dope!" he said. "38-0 against that team is pretty good. They're doing their thing."
