Madison Southern running back Damien Harris is one of UK’s top recruiting targets for the Class of 2015. He’s also considered the No. 1 overall player at his position by Rivals.com, making him a recruiting priority for several top programs across the country.
If Harris holds on to his current ranking, he’ll be on the same list as star running backs such as Adrian Peterson, Reggie Bush and Jonathan Stewart, all of whom arrived at college as the No. 1 running back in their class. But there have been other, less successful players who have left high school with the No. 1 designation too.
