Antioch (Calif.) 2017 five-star running back Najee Harris visited Alabama over the weekend, his second time in Tuscaloosa.

Harris told Alabama he was committing, but said he's not shutting down the recruiting process.

"I did give Alabama a verbal commitment, but I'm still going to go through the recruiting process," said Harris.

Harris said he still wants to visit a handful of schools before completely shutting it down.

"I'm still planning on visiting a lot of schools, like UCLA and USC this weekend, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Kansas and Texas A&M," said Harris. "So I'm still pretty wide open."

But Harris did say Alabama is where he wants to be.

"It felt like home to me at Alabama," said Harris. "It was a good trip and it was fun. I had a lot of fun watching them practice and play."

Harris was joined by his mother on the trip.

"She got to go with me and she liked it a lot," said Harris. "Going down there was like a vacation for her. She gave Alabama her blessing."

Harris told assistant coach Tosh Lupoi he was coming and also got to spend quite a bit of time with head coach Nick Saban.

"I talked to Coach Saban like four times and I like him a lot," said Harris. "I like all the coaches. Coach (Burton) Burns too."

This weekend, Harris will be in Southern California, visiting USC and UCLA unofficially while in town with TMP Elite for the Passing Down Best of the West 7v7 Finals and will be at UCLA's Spring Game at the Rose Bowl on Saturday.
