Christian Harris Ready To Learn More When He Arrives At Alabama

Christian Harris signed with Alabama in December in the early signing period nearly one month after flipping his commitment from Texas A&M. He chose the Crimson Tide to put himself “in the best situation to be successful,” even if it upset some of his classmates at University Laboratory (La.) School.

“A lot of people are really excited for me,” Harris told BamaOnLine in an exclusive interview. “I mean some people at my school aren’t, just because they’re -- well, they’re still excited for me, but they’re a little upset because I’m not choosing LSU. But it’s still all good. At the end of the day, it’s all love, and everybody’s just excited for me.”

Harris will move to Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Monday, May 27, and will move into a dorm room with cornerback signee

Marcus Banks -- and potentially one more freshman. When he joins the UA football program later this month, he will attempt to learn as much as he can, especially from junior inside linebacker

Dylan Moses , who is another Baton Rouge, La., native that faced adversity for his collegiate decision.

“I talked to him on my official (visit) about it,” Harris said of Moses. “He told me there’s going to be people that’s not going to like it. His situation was a little worse because he committed to LSU and the de-committed and committed to Bama. But it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but he just told me just tune them out and don’t listen to what they say because, at the end of the day, they’re really just caring what’s best for them and what’s best for LSU -- not necessarily myself.”

The 6-foot-1.5, 235-pound linebacker will also lean on the Butkus Award finalist for advice as he learns a new position at inside linebacker. At University Lab, Harris played wide receiver, safety and returned kicks on back-to-back state championship teams that won 26 consecutive games.
