Alabama was supposed to welcome in one of its top recruits for Saturday’s marquee matchup with Texas A&M. He won’t be there, however.
5-star running back Najee Harris, a member of the Class of 2017 from Antioch, Calif., planned to take an overnight red-eye flight from the Bay Area to Tuscaloosa in order to visit the Crimson Tide. However, Harris and his mother missed their flight and won’t be in attendance for the game, as confirmed by SEC Country’s Chris Kirschner.
