Report: Five-star running back prospect Cam Akers schedules visit to Alabama
Cam Akers’ recruitment is far from over.
The five-star running back has scheduled an Oct. 22 visit to Alabama for its meeting with currently unbeaten and No. 8 Texas A&M, he told The Clarion-Ledger on Wednesday, though several SEC schools are still heavily involved. Akers decommitted from the Crimson Tide in March, but he said it is still one of his top choices.
“I’m ready to see what it’s like again,” he told The Clarion-Ledger.
The No. 8 prospect in this year’s class, per 247Sports’s composite rankings, watched the Georgia-Tennessee game in Athens last Saturday. Both schools are in the mix despite the Bulldogs already receiving commitments from four-star running back D’Andre Swift and Toneil Carter.
Though LSU fired Les Miles two weeks ago, Akers is still interested in the Tigers.
“Coach Ed Orgeron has always been someone I knew very well even with Les Miles there, so it doesn’t change anything as far as recruiting,” Akers told The Clarion-Ledger. “You don’t go to a school for a coach, in my opinion. You go because that’s where you want to be.”
The No. 1 player in Mississippi and the second-best running back nationally, Akers has compiled 2,040 total yards and 25 total touchdowns at quarterback for Clinton High School (6-0) this year.
