UCLA will get an official visit from the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2017 class, Antioch (Calif.) five-star running back Najee Harris this weekend. 

Harris will fly down to Southern California on Saturday morning to begin his official visit with UCLA.

Mori Suesue, Harris' longtime mentor and an assistant coach at Antioch High, told Scout early Saturday morning that Harris was headed to Los Angeles to take his official.

It's the five-star Harris' first official visit. 


Harris committed to Alabama in April of 2015 but UCLA has done everything they could to stay in the race for him.

Last Saturday, assistant coach Angus McClure was at Antioch to watch Harris play his final regular season game.

Michigan still seems to be the biggest and most legitimate threat to Alabama to flip Harris, but UCLA had a lot of buzz in the spring and now the Bruins get the first official visit and first shot at Harris.

Harris told Scout last week that he achieved the necessary SAT score and, with his GPA, can now graduate in December and be enrolled at a college the week after the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
