One of the state’s top running backs is having a senior season to remember, and Auburn is taking notice.
Kamore Harris, a three-star athlete from B.B. Comer High School in Sylacauga, announced his pledge to Memphis over the summer. However, the 2024 product has rushed for over 1,100 yards and 20 touchdowns to this point in his senior season. Posting numbers like that has caught the attention of Auburn.
Memphis remains the top offer for Harris so far in his recruitment but he tells Sam Spiegelman of On3 that the top programs in his home state are beginning to show interest.
“Auburn and Alabama talk and text me. They’re telling me to keep playing hard,” Harris said in an interview with On3. “I like that I’ve got the two in-state programs looking at me, even though it’ll be hard to earn an offer from them at the 2A level I’m playing at. I like how both coaching staffs really care about the players on the field and away from the field.”
The good news for Harris is that Auburn is not afraid to recruit players from smaller schools. Auburn EDGE Keldric Faulk comes from Highland Home High School, which is in the same classification as B.B. Comer. In fact, Harris and the B.B. Comer Tigers defeated Highland Home in the AHSAA Class 2A semifinals last season.
If Harris keeps playing at a high level and continues to post solid numbers through the final stretch of the regular season, he could earn an offer from Auburn before signing day.
Harris is a big presence, standing at 6-0, 230 pounds. He is the state’s No. 52 overall player for the 2024 cycle and ranks No. 144 among athletes according to 247Sports.
