Baton Rouge, Louisiana native Christian Harris announced his commitment earlier in the week. And it wasn’t to his hometown LSU Tigers. Instead, Harris revealed that he’d be playing for the Texas A&M Aggies starting in 2019.
Harris, an attendee of University Lab, made the announcement on his Twitter account that A&M was his school of choice.

Harris is the 13th player in Texas A&M’s 2019 recruiting class rated four stars or higher. He gives them 12 four-star players, while offensive tackle Kenyon Green remains as the lone five-star in the class. Not surprisingly, he’s an outsider in the class from a state perspective, as much of this class consists of Texas recruits. He, so far, is the lone player from the state of Louisiana to commit so far.
Prior to committing, Harris fielded offers from a slew of Power 5 programs, including the Alabama Crimson Tide, Auburn Tigers, Florida State Seminoles, aforementioned LSU, the Texas Longhorns and others.
Harris is currently listed as both a wide receiver and an inside linebacker. The 6-foot-1, 225 pounder has gained plenty of recognition on the 2019 circuit. He is listed 10th among all athletes in the Class of 2019 and 132nd in the nation overall. In Louisiana, Christian Harris is currently ranked 6th among all recruits in the state.
Texas A&M’s class remains 3rd in the country and the SEC behind Alabama and the Georgia Bulldogs.
