Damien Harris is a 5-star running back from Kentucky who was once committed to Michigan. Although the talented recruit is no longer pledged to Big Blue, the Wolverines remain a solid option for him.
Harris, who is 5'11" and 205 pounds, has fantastic speed and quickness to clear the second level with ease. He has adequate elusiveness with the ball, and he also can gain an extra yard or two after contact.
To get Harris back in the fold, Michigan will have to beat out schools such as Ohio State, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky and Auburn, per 247Sports.
Harris told the following to Marc Givler of BuckeyeGrove.com (subscription required) about Michigan on Feb. 17:
I really like coach Nussmeier and we've developed a really good relationship over the time that he's been there. He's a great coach and he told me when he first got there that, 'hey I don't really know you and you don't really know me but give me a chance to show to you that I can be a good coach for you and develop you and help you be successful at the University of Michigan.' I'd like to see how he does his first year and we'll see how our relationship goes and that will determine how much I'll look at them in the long run.
