Video: Top 2017 RB recruit Cam Akers lists final six choices, sets announcement date
2017 running back prospect Cam Akers is one of the best players in the country — regardless of position.
The 5-star back out of Mississippi is a top-5 player nationally, and for good reason. Akers is lethal in the open field with his speed. He’s also powerful enough to shuck defenders as if they were practice dummies.
In terms of a comparison, he’s eerily similar to current Dallas Cowboys stud Ezekiel Elliott. There’s no doubt Akers will make an impact on the college level sooner rather than later.
On Twitter, Akers released this video — detailing the parameters for his commitment. He’s narrowed the list down to six schools: Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, and Tennessee.
Akers will make his choice public on Dec. 27 at 7:00 p.m. CT. It can be seen on the High School Football Network.
