The Alabama Crimson Tide have a new running back in five-star prospect Damien Harris, and it appears nobody is more excited about his presence on the team than, well, himself. The top running back in the country, per 247 Sports, Harris posted a tweet that proves fans should not only be excited about the upcoming season, but to have him on the team.
Crazy that the next chapter in my life begins today couldn't be more humble and thankful for this opportunity. Greatness awaits! Roll Tide 🅰

The facts are simple. Alabama has a hole at running back, what with T.J. Yeldon being drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this month, and Harris fills that hole playing behind junior Derrick Henry. Combine his talent with the above tweet that suggests a good head on his shoulders, and the Crimson Tide should be in a phenomenal position to once again be the SEC’s top squad.
Alabama went 12-2 (7-1 SEC) last season and made the College Football Playoff as a No. 1 seed before being upset by eventual champion Ohio State. The team opens the season against Wisconsin on September 5 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
