5-Star RB Najee Harris, No. 1 player in 2017 class, visiting Ohio State

The Ohio State Buckeyes will be losing star running back Ezekiel Elliott to the 2016 NFL Draft, but they may not have to wait long for the next great college football running back.

On Saturday, the Buckeyes will be hosting their annual spring game.

When the festivities take place, a very special person will be in attendance in Columbus. That player is five-star running back Najee Harris, who is currently ranked as the No. 1 overall player in the Class of 2017.

Anticoh (CA) assistant head coach Brett Dudley shared photos of Harris currently on his visit.

Harris is currently committed to Alabama, but he will continue to play out his recruitment with everyone in the nation hoping to add him to their backfield. However, only a handful of teams truly have a shot at landing his services and it looks like the Buckeyes are in that mix.

Ohio State’s spring game is set to kick off on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. EDT.
