Jay Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines received some good news on Saturday when 2022 four-star running back Arlen Harris Jr. included them in his top six list. He also included Iowa, Penn State, Florida, Missouri and Stanford.
The 5-foot-11, 189-pounder hails from Saint Peters, Missouri and is one of the top targets for the Wolverines at the running back position in 2022. The younger Harbaugh offered Harris back in April and have been one of the top schools in his recruitment since then.
The team to watch here is Iowa. The Hawkeyes have been recruiting him for a long time, and have hosted Harris Jr. on more than one occasion. They have done solid work in this recruitment, so they may have the pole position as of today, especially considering they have a crystal ball in their favor.
The Wolverines are recruiting the running back position hard in 2022, with 24 offers already sent out. Other top targets include five-star Emmanuel Henderson, four-star Gi’Bran Payne and in-state four-star Dillon Tatum.
Harris Jr. is the No. 5 player in Missouri, No. 23 running back and No. 213 overall player on 247Sports’ composite.
