State is No. 22 in ESPN's latest recruiting rankings, giving the SEC 10 of the top 25 classes. Recent commitments by quarterback Cord Sandberg and running back Kailo Moore, both ESPN 300 prospects, have give the Bulldogs a lot of momentum. Seven of their 10 commitments are from the state of Mississippi.

Rounding out the SEC schools in ESPN's latest top 25 are Florida No. 2, Alabama No. 3, Georgia No. 5, Texas A&M No. 6, Auburn No. 9, LSU No. 13, South Carolina No. 15, Ole Miss No. 20 and Vanderbilt No. 23.

A&M received a commitment on Thursday from Edna Karr cornerback Noel Ellis.

Other SEC schools to offer Ellis include Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Tennessee. Florida State and Nebraska are two other schools to offer a scholarship.

Ellis gave his commitment to Texas A&M on the same day as cornerback Tavares Garner from Manvel (Texas) High School. Garner had previously been committed to Texas Tech.

Looking into A&M's recruiting class

Damon Sayles: Sumlin believes there are athletes everywhere, but if you aren't taking care of home, someone else will. The one advantage that A&M has over the other Texas schools is that he can tell recruits they will play in the SEC, a conference that is accustomed to winning national championships. As for the other parts of the country, he's definitely increasing his efforts and working toward picking up more recruits in Georgia, Florida and even South Carolina. For the time being, Sumlin knows there's a ton of talent in Texas. Why not take advantage?

The Bulldogs' coaching staff has apparently re-focused its efforts on finding tall, rangy receivers to replace the five seniors expected to contribute heavily this fall.

Three receivers committed to MSU in the 2013 class are 6-foot-3 or taller, according to Rivals.com.

Only one receiver on MSU's roster this season - Joe Morrow - falls in that category.

Miami linebacker Matthew Thomas, rated the nation's No. 3 outside linebacker and a five-star prospect according to 247Sports, told Charles Power of BamaOnline that Alabama is currently his leader, thanks in large to Nick Saban's history of sending linebackers to the NFL.

Jacksonville, Florida defensive end Demarcus Walker is another star prospect with the Tide high on his board, along with Florida and Auburn. Walker said he plans on making a decision soon and will visit Alabama for a camp later this month before deciding on a commitment.

Alabama is also actively recruiting one of the top defensive backs in the country, Virginia star Holland Fisher, despite the four-star safety's commitment to Virginia Tech. Fisher said that during a recent phone conversation with Saban, the Tide coach pitched the 6-foot-1, 200-pound athlete on how well he would fit in the Tide's defensive system.

One of Georgia’s top college football prospects switched his commitment from Alabama to LSU on Friday.

Andy Dodd, a 6-foot-4, 325-pounder from Pepperell High School, flipped to LSU one day after making a surprise official visit to LSU on Friday.

“I had just been praying about it,” Dodd told the AJC. “I just felt like it was the right thing to do. It [LSU] was the place that I fit in the most.”

Dodd, who is ranked as a 4-star and the nation’s No. 139 overall prospect by ESPN, said he knew a week or two after he committed to Alabama in March that he had made a mistake. (http://blogs.ajc.com/recruiting/2012/07/20/georgia-4-star-ol-flips-from-alabama-to-lsu/)

I know Walker and his family well.  Our youngest is in Walker's class at ECS (which is in Cordova, not Germantown).  He's good and versatile, but they'll have to put some more size on him before he'll see the field at 'Bama.  If he's 240 lb. right now, then I run a 4.3 40 yd dash.  He's probably more like 220.

A catchy name is attached to a list of preseason standouts recognized by state media. In Alabama it's the A-listers, in Mississippi it's the Dandy Dozen. Columbus Dandy Dozen offensive lineman Jake Thomas verbally committed to Mississippi State. (http://www.clarionledger.com/article/20120816/SPORTS030102/208160333/Dandy-Dozen-Thomas-commits-Mississippi-State?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|Sports)

The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Thomas grew up just 25 miles away from Starkville, but admits he didn't really have a favorite team growing up.

"But I had been really thinking about it lately and after talking to my parents Tuesday, I said what better time to do it than now," said Thomas.

Thomas also had offers from Ole Miss and Southern Miss.

He is rated a 4-star recruit by one recruiting service (Scout.com) and a 3-star by rivals.

He is the third Dandy Dozen offensive lineman to commit to the Bulldogs, following South Panola's Deon Mix and Hollandale Simmons' Kent Flowers.

Jackson Academy's Jamaal Clayborne, another in a stellar class of linemen in the state this year, committed to MSU last week as well.

"With an early morning kickoff and Louisiana-Monroe visiting, Auburn won't be hosting a large group of recruits Saturday," said Auburn Undercover recruiting analyst Bryan Matthews. "It will be just the opposite next Saturday with a number of top prospects expected to be in town for the LSU game including a couple of official visitors."

Currently committed players expected on Saturday morning include the nation's top linebacker Reuben Foster as well as Huntsville High School linebacker Cameron Toney.

Alabama football commitment D.J. Johnson was arrested earlier this week for the second time in the last month.

Johnson was released from jail earlier this week and placed on house arrest as he faces two rape allegations. Johnson’s restrictions allow him to attend classes at Spanish Fort High School but exclude him from after-school football practice, before-school weight-lifting sessions or meeting, and football games, according to the Mobile Press-Register.

Johnson was charged with first-degree rape this week less than a month after he was arrested and charged with second-degree rape and sodomy.

The two cases are separate and unrelated, according to Daphne Police spokesman Lt. Jud Beedy.

Alabama coach Nick Saban needs to end the school’s relationship with Johnson (so he can commit to Tennessee), who’s still listed as an Alabama commitment by Rivals.com.

Early kickoff at Auburn no problem for visiting recruits (http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index.ssf/2012/10/early_kickoff_at_auburn_no_pro.html#incart_river)

Junior prospects including in-state linebackers Tre' Williams and Shaun Dion Hamilton, two of Georgia's top juniors in cornerback Wesley Green and linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams, and quarterback Justice Hansen, who is coming all the way from Edmund, Oklahoma."

Another visitor expected to make a long trip on Saturday is 4-star defensive end and Auburn commit Tashawn Bower. The New Jersey native committed to the Tigers over the summer and is traveling to the Plains for his official visit. Despite his commitment to the Tigers, this weekend will be Bower's first game at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Along with Bower, Auburn will be hosting several other currently committed prospects including Auburn High School star Reuben Foster and Carver-Montgomery quarterback Jeremy Johnson, who will be coming fresh off of their Friday night showdown in Auburn. McGill-Toolen quarterback Jason Smith, Pinson Valley receiver Earnest Robinson and Huntsville linebacker Cameron Toney are also expected to attend.

Auburn commits shine in televised showdown

Carver-Montgomery quarterback Jeremy Johnson stole the show by leading his squad to an upset over the powerhouse Auburn squad that many rated as the state's top team. (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/10/weekend_recruiting_roundup_aub.html#incart_river)
 
Quote
Johnson, a 6-foot-5, 215-pound quarterback rated a four-star prospect by all four major services, finished 9-of-15 passing for 233 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for nine carries for 117 yards and three more touchdowns. His dominant effort helped lead the way for a 46-20 victory for Carver.

"He was pretty confident," said Carver-Montgomery head coach Billy Gresham following the game. "He came out tonight and played well. He's a three-year starter for us so he's played in big games against good players. He did a great job of staying composed and making the right plays for us."


The Alabama Crimson Tide are looking to fill their few remaining spots in the 2013 recruiting class and one of the top candidates for that spot is Florida offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil. Rated as the nation's top offensive tackle prospect, Tunsil currently lists the Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs as his top two schools but with a decision not expected until National Signing Day in February, Nick Saban and his staff are likely in for a tough battle to land this elite lineman.

Tunsil, who is close friends with recent Alabama commit Derrick Henry, expects to take his five official visits after the end of his senior football season with Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, and USC all expected to receive visits according to 247Sports.


Bulldog commit Tray Matthews visited the game to root on Johnson and Foster, both of whom he has befriended after numerous run-ins on the recruiting circuit.

Matthews, a four-star safety prospect out of Newnan, Georgia, has been committed to UGA since August but continues to have contact with other schools, including the Auburn Tigers.

Ole Miss received a commitment during the weekend from tight end Christian Morris from Prestonwood Christian

 
Christian Morgan
@C_Morgan2013 I have decided to commit to THE University of Mississippi! It has been a long journey but God has guided me the whole way. #RebelNation

Morgan’s decision to commit to Ole Miss came less than a week after he decommitted from Florida State.

“I’m really excited,” Morgan told The Clarion-Ledger. “The place works for me. It fits everything I’m looking for: personally, spiritually, and football wise. I really trust Coach (Hugh) Freeze and really believe in this program.”

He’s the 19th prospect and second tight end to commit to Ole Miss’ class of 2013.

Auburn is safe with 4-star commit “as long as there’s not a catastrophe” (http://blogs.ajc.com/recruiting/2012/10/15/should-auburn-be-worried-about-lb-visiting-usc-ohio-state-penn-state-etc/)

Trey Johnson, the 4-star linebacker who is committed to Auburn, will likely decide after this weekend if he will take his fifth and final official visit to Florida.

Johnson, who is considered by many to be the state’s best senior linebacker after Reuben Foster transferred last spring, will go through the entire recruiting process and all of his visits — despite being committed to Auburn for 15 months.

“He just wants to make sure about everything; this is the only time he gets to control anything,” Central Gwinnett coach Todd Wofford told the AJC. “He knows college football is a business from his relationship with (Ted Roof, who resigned as Auburn’s defensive coordinator last December).

“After seeing other coaches take other jobs or get fired, this is a chance for Trey to double-check everything and make sure. It’s a chance for Trey and his family to make sure everything is where it needs to be and where he wants to be.”

Quote
"I'm still solid. I don't care if they go 1-8, 1-9. I'm still 100 percent committed to Auburn," Toney said on Smashmouth Radio.

"They talk about more than just football," Toney said. "It's a family thing and they made sure I was on top of my game with my grades and they asked me how my family was doing. The one thing I like about that coaching staff down there is they're all about family, not just football."

"Auburn as a school, they're very high on academics and they're very great at a lot of things. I want to major in engineering and Auburn is the top notch for engineers."

"Seeing them hurt, it hurts me myself. I've talked to a couple (current players) and it's a struggle for them this year, especially the defensive side with Coach Van Gorder coming in. It's very tough with his defensive scheme and it's going to take them a while to pick it up. If they keep working hard, they'll get back to the team they were."

"Coaches aren't calling me telling me to talk about how Auburn's season is going but Tennessee is still calling me and still wanting me. Like I said earlier, I'm 100 percent Auburn. That's the best school for me."

"This recruiting class that we have now is a bunch of leaders. I think as freshmen coming up a lot of guys are going to step up and become leaders."

Keep an eye on Dutchtown High School QB Donovahn Jones, who has committed to Missouri as an “athlete.” UGA assistant Scott Lakatos visited Dutchtown to watch film of Jones last week, and was impressed with “his size, speed, and overall athleticism,” according to Dutchtown assistant Terry Herrod. UGA has yet to offer. Last week, Jones had 506 yards of total offense and threw for six touchdowns in a win over Eagles Landing. The 6-3, 195-pounder has quietly accumulated 22 offers, including five from SEC schools. Missouri and Arkansas will scout him on Friday, and he’s set to take his official visit with Missouri on Nov. 17. “I think he is really comfortable with his commitment to Missouri … He is really flattered by all the attention he is getting from other SEC schools,” Herrod said.

6-4, 240, Lovejoy, Ga TE AJ Jackson says his Auburn de-commitment was “misunderstanding" (http://blogs.ajc.com/recruiting/2012/10/22/georgia-te-says-his-auburn-de-commitment-was-misunderstanding/)
 
Quote
“I’m still committed to Auburn; it’s all good,” Jackson told the AJC on Sunday. “I feel good about how everything was handled with this situation. I still like Auburn.”

Here’s what happened: Jackson had heard rumors for a week from other recruits, a student at Auburn, and a parent of one of his Lovejoy teammates that he had “lost” his scholarship at Auburn due to grades.

Even though Jackson had not spoken directly with Auburn’s coaches, Jackson was convinced enough by his sources that he de-committed to the Tigers.

Then he spoke directly a few hours later to Auburn’s coaches, master recruiter Trooper Taylor and head coach Gene Chizik.

“I got a call from Coach Trooper, and he confirmed it wasn’t true,” Jackson told the AJC. “He said I was still one of their main targets, that they still have high interest in me, and they don’t want me to go anywhere else. He said don’t listen to the rumors, stick with us, and if I have any problems to call and we’ll talk about it.

“Coach Chizik basically said the same things, but in a different way. He said he would love to have me as a kid and an athlete. He said he would never take my scholarship away.”

What about Auburn’s first 1-6 start in 60 years? “It’s not a good start, and everybody knows that. I’m disappointed, but at the same time I’m glad I can go there next year and help them get things turned back around.”

While Jackson remains committed to Auburn, he still plans to definitely take an official visit to Florida State and may also tour Tennessee, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

Quote
Five-star Tuscaloosa running back Bo Scarbrough, who committed to the Tide in early September, traveled to Baton Rouge for an unofficial recruiting visit but encountered some complications when he arrived at the game.

"I signed up for tickets online, and they sent me an email telling me I had been approved for three tickets," Scarbrough said in an interview with BamaOnline. "But when I got there, they didn't have a ticket for me. They said my name wasn't on the list. They told me to come back five minutes before the game."

Scarbrough said the issue was eventually cleared up but not in time for him to participate in the traditional meet and greet session with the LSU coaching staff before the game.

"I got in right before kickoff, so I didn't get to talk to anyone," he said. "After the game, I just waited and nobody came so I just left. I wanted to meet [the LSU coaches] and talk to them at least. I was kind of disappointed."

Scarbrough said it was unlikely he would visit LSU again.

The 6-foot, 220-pound running back also confirmed that he remains "100 percent" committed to Alabama...

Breaking down Bama's and Auburn's 2013 recruiting class so far (http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2012/11/breaking_down_alabamas_2013_re.html#incart_river)
 
Quote
In the 247Composite index, an average of all four services, Alabama's class of 19 committed players is currently ranked No. 2 in the nation with Auburn's group of 18 commitments not far behind at No. 7.

We'll take a look at which position groups on each team will be getting immediate help, which groups are preparing to build for the future, and which groups are still in dire need of some additional talent.

Running Backs

Many believed before the season that the Crimson Tide had created a logjam at the running back position with too many talented players to keep everyone happy. Several injuries later, the Tide looks like it could use even more depth in the running back corps and Nick Saban and his staff appear slated to bring in reinforcements. Five-star Derrick Henry is on schedule to break the national high school career rushing yard record this season, though some believe he is too big to play the running back position at the college level. Little Rock four-star Altee Tenpenny is the prototype Alabama running back prospect while Georgia star Tyren Jones [knee] is the kind of versatile playmaker that could spice things up in the Alabama backfield.

They don’t have any linebackers committed right now, and that’s a priority position for them. They’re undefeated, and they’re going to win every year and always be in the BCS picture. That’s really appealing to Trey, and (Meyer’s) record speaks for itself. He’s a top-notch guy.”

Hill, a 6-foot-6, 370-pound tackle committed to the Rebels while taking an official visit in Oxford on Friday.

Hill, who signed with the Crimson Tide out of high school, failed to meet NCAA academic eligibility standards and enrolled at Hargrave in August with hopes of regaining his eligibility and returning to Alabama in January.

"We're hopeful that he's so close to qualifying, that he will be able to qualify in one semester and hopefully join us in January," Nick Saban said in August regarding Hill. "That's our plan, and that's what we'd like to do for him."

Jason Smith, McGill-Toolen, QB: The Auburn commit finished his high school career with 15 carries for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 29-28, overtime loss to Auburn.

Bradley Bozeman, Handley, OL: The beefy lineman, who has committed to Alabama, suffered a torn knee ligament during the Sept. 22 victory over Bullock County and missed the rest of the season.

Cam Toney, Huntsville, LB: The Auburn commit started in Huntsville's 9-0 season-ending loss to Vestavia Hills, helping lead a defense that allowed only 170 yards of total offense.

D.J. Johnson, Spanish Fort, WR: The star receiver did not play after the first few weeks of the season after being arrested and charged in two separate rape cases in Baldwin County. Alabama reportedly rescinded its scholarship offer.

Could NFL Draft decisions impact the Tide's 2013 recruiting class? (http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2012/11/could_nfl_draft_decisions_impa.html)

Quote
Saban began constructing his list of priorities for his sixth full recruiting class at Alabama. It was becoming difficult to find a spot on the Crimson Tide's roster that was in desperate need of an infusion of young talent.

Saban and his staff has been about finding the best available players at any position from just about anywhere in the country.

As NFL Draft projections begin to take shape, the possibility of Alabama losing multiple underclassmen to the draft seems more and more likely.

Foremost among the Tide's potential early entrants is cornerback Dee Milliner, the highest-rated draft-eligible defensive back and the No. 11 overall prospect according to ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr.

Saban made news during his weekly radio show last week when he mentioned that he expects offensive tackle D.J. Fluker to enter the draft in January as well.

While C.J. Mosley and Eddie Lacy are both listed among the top five junior prospects at their respective positions, neither appears to be a likely candidate for early entry into the draft, giving the Tide a little breathing room when it comes to recruiting inside linebackers and running backs. Despite that, the Tide is hoping to sign all three of its current running back commits in February, including five-star Derrick Henry and four-stars Altee Tenpenny and Tyren Jones.

Piling on? Iron Bowl: Who owns the state of recruiting? Alabama or Auburn (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/11/iron_bowl_of_recruiting_who_ow.html)

Quote
Once Chizik and his newly assembled staff, including ace recruiters Trooper Taylor and Curtis Luper, got their chance at a full recruiting cycle, Alabama's unquestioned dominance in the state was over. The Tigers were still out-paced overall by the Tide in 2010 but were able to sign in-state stars LaDarious Owens, Craig Sanders and Kenneth Carter, all of whom were consensus four-star prospects and all of whom have become significant contributors on the Auburn defense.

In 2011, Chizik and his staff finally made it clear that in-state dominance on the recruiting trail was a truly attainable goal for the Tigers. By landing the signatures of Erique Florence, Reese Dismukes and Jonathan Rose, Auburn matched the Tide blow for blow on the state's blue-chip prospects, even forcing Alabama to fight right down to the wire to land running back Brent Calloway to go along with four-star receivers Marvin Shinn and Danny Woodson Jr.

One month removed from winning a national title and having shown that they were every bit the recruiting equal of the mighty Crimson Tide, Chizik and his staff entered the 2012 recruiting cycle with plenty of optimism. But Nick Saban and his staff of masterful recruiters answered the challenge from across the state and in a deep class of talent that saw 13 prospects from the state earn ratings of 4-stars or better, Alabama landed five to Auburn's two, thanks in part to another late move by Alabama to flip Daphne running back T.J. Yeldon away from his commitment to the Tigers and over to the Tide.

Goldberg: Thigpen still on recruiting trail, telling players to stick with Auburn

Thigpen may not have a job come Monday or Tuesday, but he has one now, and he's out selling Auburn.

The Tigers' assistant coach, in limbo but still on the payroll since Gene Chizik was fired last Sunday, is visiting recruits and committed players this weekend, reminding them they committed to the school, not the coaches.

Thigpen said Friday: "I'm telling them that Auburn is still a heck of a place. I still think it's one of the Top 5 places to play football.

"The bottom line is to get the kids to stick with Auburn."

Taylor and Luper are on the road again after Auburn restricted their recruiting in the middle of the season. Two players have de-committed. Seventeen others are still on board.

"They all want to know what kind of system will be in place – is it going to be a spread, is going to be a pro-style system, is it going to be a West Coast system? Those are the kind of questions I'm getting," Thigpen said. "A quarterback who is a spread guy or a pro-style guy wants to know. Defensive guys want to know the same thing. Are you going to run the 3-4 or 4-3? They want to know the coach's philosophy. The questions are legitimate, but you can't really answer them right now. So I tell them, 'It's Auburn.

Will Alabama and Auburn really overlook Spanish Fort defensive back Johnny Cook? Really? Really? Really. (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/11/will_alabama_and_auburn_really.html)

Quote
The Spanish Fort senior again confirmed his status as one of the Deep South's bests defensive back prospects in the 24-10 victory over St. Paul's in the Class 5A semifinals, making several big hits before his leaping interception with 3:48 remaining ended all hopes of a St. Paul's victory.

Cook committed to Bo Pellini's Nebraska program several months ago, and neither Alabama nor Auburn has extended a scholarship offer. Alabama has shown additional interest as the season has progressed, and Cook would likely prefer playing closer to home.

Alabama already has 19 verbal commitments, and several other national level recruits remain on the Crimson Tide's grown up wish list. Cook's one-on-one cover ability and 6-foot-1 frame make him perfect for Nick Saban's defensive scheme.

The recent ouster of Gene Chizik at Auburn leaves the entire Tigers' class in temporary limbo, and just about every program in the country - including Alabama - would love to poach Auburn High linebacker Reuben Foster, Muscle Shoals defensive lineman Dee Liner or Alpharetta, Ga., defensive lineman Carl Lawson.

Any Auburn defection could open a spot for Cook...

Cook is rated 5.5 by Rivals.

Ja’Quay Williams, the former Sandy Creek standout committed to A&M over UGA and South Carolina on Sunday night.

Williams is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound wide receiver who signed with Auburn over UGA last year but did not meet NCAA entrance requirements. Williams is attending prep school this semester and hopes to enroll at Texas A&M in January.

“However, after looking at everything and taking my time to evaluate for now and into the future, Coach (Kevin Sumlin), his staff and the A&M program is where I need to be and where I am now committed 110 percent. I indicated so tonight! I have officially committed to Texas A&M.”

Obviously, working against UGA for Williams was the appeal to play with the leading contender for the Heisman Trophy, Texas A&M redshirt freshman QB Johnny Manziel...

A week of speculation about destinations ended Sunday evening when Ole Miss accepted an invitation to the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham.

The Rebels, in a bowl game for the first time since 2009, will play Pittsburgh, which will be playing in its third consecutive Compass Bowl.

“It accelerates our journey, our process. It’s not only the extra practice, but the media attention, the national coverage of the game.

“We’re one of the teams in this tough conference still playing, and any time you can say that, you have to say the season has been somewhat a success, but in our case, coming off two seasons of limited wins … it expedites our message to the recruits we’re going after.”

Freeze conducted a Sunday evening conference call from a recruit’s home.

Auburn’s recruits from Georgia finally react to hiring of Guz Malzahn (http://blogs.ajc.com/recruiting/2012/12/05/auburns-recruits-from-georgia-react-to-hiring-of-guz-malzahn/)

Quote
Most of them want to know more about or meet Malzahn, or see whom he is going to hire as defensive assistants...

Carl Lawson, DE from Milton (ranked nation’s No. 2 overall prospect by ESPN): “Don’t have much information on him.”

AJ Jackson, TE from Lovejoy: “My coach told me, but I don’t really know who that guy is. I’ve never heard of him before, but I’m sure he’s good if Auburn hired him. They said he was the OC at Auburn a couple of years ago."

"It's 100 percent that I'll be at Auburn if Trooper Taylor stays on the staff," Jackson said.

Also, it remains to be seen how much of an impact Malzahn’s hiring will have on LB Trey Johnson, who de-committed from Auburn last week. “I think it could be a good fit for Auburn, as far as someone that they are familiar with,” said Johnson’s coach at Central Gwinnett. “But as far as Trey goes, it didn’t fire him up as much as the Kirby talk”

Malzahn finding coaches, recruits; former commit says he may follow Trooper Taylor

Taylor isn't likely to return to Auburn next season, according to sources within Auburn's athletic department.

New head coach Gus Malzahn dismissed Gene Chizik's 2012 staff Wednesday, and he's tried to touch base with Auburn's commitments in
his first three days on staff.

Hiring Rhett Lashlee and Ellis Johnson as the offensive and defensive coordinators was Malzahn's first priority.

And Malzahn will fill out the rest of his staff with heavy input from Lashlee and Johnson.

"I want to give these guys ownership in our assistant coaches," Malzahn said.

Asked about the difficulty of releasing those former colleagues, Malzahn admitted the task wasn't easy.

"There's no doubt," Malzahn said. "You get extremely close to people when you work with them. It was extremely tough."

After Lashlee's hire, Malzahn was also asked about the possibility of more Arkansas State assistants following him to Auburn, a question he deflected.

Minus one, add two.

That was the case for Mississippi State football this weekend. The Bulldogs lost Copiah-Lincoln Community College wide receiver Devante Scott on Saturday, who flipped his commitment to UAB, only to add two Juco wide receivers a day later.

Scott was a relatively well-regarded prospect, but suffered a major knee injury and missed the majority of his sophomore year at Co-Lin.

On Sunday, MSU received commitments from East Mississippi Community College wide receiver Corey Smith and Tyler Junior College wide receiver Jeremy Chappelle.

So in the 2013 recruiting class, any recruit that is a mid-year enrollee who begins taking classes in January (which is the 2012-13 academic year), can count toward the 2012 recruiting class.

Now the 25-member limit still exists for each year, so while a school can count recruits back to 2012, the number of players that signed letters of intent in February of 2012 and the number of mid-year enrollees that are "December graduates" who join for the spring 2013 semester must still equal no more than 25.

A&M signed 19 players to letters of intent in February 2012 but had four early enrollees in the class, three of which can be counted back to 2011, when the Aggies signed 22 players.

So taking that into consideration, that leaves spots for up to nine mid-term enrollees in the current recruiting class, meaning the Aggies could conceivably take 34 signees.

Taking it a step further, the Aggies had five early enrollees in the 2011 class. One of those could be counted back toward 2010, leaving room for one more spot in the 2011 class that the fourth 2012 early enrollee could fit in and give the Aggies a possibility of taking 35 signees in the class.

Currently, the Aggies have seven players committed that are expected to be early enrollees: Reggie Chevis, Cameron Clear, Kenny Flowers, Jordan Points, Alex Sezer,Jeremiah Stuckey and Brett Wade.

Mobile-area high school coaches impressed by Gus Malzahn's visit to area (http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index.ssf/2012/12/mobile-area_high_school_coache.html)

Quote
Included in his stops were UMS-Wright and St. Paul’s – home of 2014 top linebacker prospect Tre Williams.

“It was mostly a courtesy call,” St. Paul’s coach Steve Mask said. “He didn’t meet with any players. I think he just wanted to talk about what he wanted to do for Auburn and how he saw the Mobile area fitting into that.

“I told him I thought we played the best football in the state down here.”

Mask, who led the Saints to the Class 5A state semifinals in his first year as head coach, said Malzahn made a positive impression on him.

“I was very impressed to be honest that he took the time this early in his tenure to visit some high schools and try to build those relationships,” he said. “I think it says a lot for what he wants to do. I also think, with him being a former high school coach, he understands how important it is to build those relationships with high school coaches.”

He's a consensus four-star prospect as an athlete, a player with exceptional speed and enough game-breaking ability on the outside that he's playing receiver for Alabama at the 26th annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game in Montgomery this week.

But the new Auburn head coach -- Smith has been committed to the Tigers since July -- has only mentioned quarterback to the McGill-Toolen star so far.

"We talked about how I was going to fit into the offense, at the quarterback spot," Smith said.

Spanish Fort star Jonathan Cook commits to Alabama

Bama has reportedly picked up a commitment from four-star defensive back Jonathan Cook of Spanish Fort.

Alabama offered me and I committed to Coach Saban. This is the offer I've been waiting on my whole life. It's a dream come true to play for Alabama," said Cook in an interview with BamaOnline shortly after the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game.

The 6-foot, 183-pound star committed to Nebraska in August but had made it clear in recent interviews that a scholarship offer from either Alabama or Auburn could change his mind about that.

Cook is rated the No. 9 prospect in the state of Alabama and the No. 15 cornerback in the nation by 247Sports.

Auburn’s recruiting has taken some body blows since the firing of Gene Chizik.

At least six prospects have de-committed from Auburn since the coaching change.

Within the last few weeks, Auburn has lost four longtime commits from Georgia.

Even though it’s a high turnover – at least right now – and it stings, it’s a perfectly normal situation after a coaching change. New Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has been hustling all over the Southeast to recruit since he got the job. He met with Carl Lawson and Trey Johnson, among others, last week. He also checked in on 5-star DT Montravius Adams, who is undecided.

La Porte linebacker Hoza Scott — ranked as the No. 1 linebacker in the junior class — chose the Aggies over offers from Alabama, Florida State and LSU among others.

Scott is the fifth commitment for the 2014 class — and the fourth defender.

Hinds Community College receiver Quadarias Mireles signed with Ole Miss Wednesday morning, becoming the first junior college prospect to sign with Ole Miss on the day.

ESPN.com rates Mireles as the No. 8 overall player in the junior college ranks. He's listed as an athlete, but is expected to be a wide receiver at Ole Miss. He originally signed with the school in 2010.

East Mississippi Community College also officially announced that Nick Brassell is headed back to Ole Miss. Brassell left Ole Miss this spring because of academics, and played both ways at EMCC as he tried to shore up his grades.

Brassell did not have to sign with Ole Miss and will not count towards this year's recruiting class numbers. He only counts against the 85 total scholarships Ole Miss can reward.

Ole Miss also confirmed that two high school mid-year enrollees are officially members of the team. Running back Mark Dodson led Whitehaven High School in Memphis to a state championship and was the Gatorade player of the year for the state.

Tight end Christian Morgan of Plano, Texas, is considered the No. 11 tight end nationally according to Scout.com. Both players are considered four-star prospects.

Both signed financial aid grants, and will join Ole Miss in January.

He’s got prototypical size, outstanding composure, he’s a running threat, and he can throw with accuracy and velocity on the run. Watson was just about perfect on the short and intermediate throws on a cold and windy day. “He’s as gifted as anybody I’ve ever seen,” said Blessed Trinity coach Tim McFarlin, the Eastside offensive coordinator.
Runner-up: None.

Malzahn makes scholarship offer to RB Peyton Barber, Carl Lawson's teammate and Ole Miss commit (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/12/auburns_gus_malzahn_makes_scho.html)

Quote
Auburn made a scholarship offer Sunday to Milton High (Ga.) running back and Ole Miss commitment Peyton Barber.

Barber told the Atlanta Journal Constitution he got a "random call" on Sunday from Auburn's Gus Malzahn.

"I didn't know who it was, at first," Barber told the AJC. "Coach Malzahn said he had nothing to do with the old coaching staff at Auburn. He said if he had been there, I would've definitely had an offer before the season. (Malzahn) felt like I was one of the best running backs he's watched this year. He liked the way I ran, blocked and caught balls. He said I could be an every-down back there."

Barber's Milton teammate is defensive end and Auburn commitment Carl Lawson, who is the nation's No. 2-ranked prospect by ESPN.

Barber indicated he is still committed to Auburn (sic) and even alluded to working on Lawson to become a Rebel.

"I do talk to Carl about coming to Ole Miss. Those talks go pretty well," Barber told 247 Sports. "He says he's definitely interested in Ole Miss and likes Ole Miss. It would be nice to have him there with me.

"If Robert Nkemdiche and Carl Lawson could commit to Ole Miss, I think it could be one of the greatest classes to ever come through Ole Miss."

Nkemdiche and the all-stars spent part of Thursday laying sod on a youth football field as a community service project.

What makes Nkemdiche an interesting figure in North Mississippi is the possibility of what his future holds. A one-time Clemson commit, he has Ole Miss in the lead as national signing day approaches in February.

Nkemdiche says LSU and Florida are still very much in the mix. His older brother, Denzel, is a star linebacker for Ole Miss.

Today’s Under Armour All-America Game is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. ESPN will televise the game live. Several recruits will be making their announcements, but not Nkemdiche.

The game features several undecided prospects, including Houston 5-star defensive end Chris Jones, a Mississippi State commi, who added an offer from Ole Miss Tuesday. South Panola’s Antonio Conner was originally going to announce tonight but has postponed until Feb. 3.

Crete, Ill., wide receiver Laquon Treadwell is the country’s top-rated receiver and has Ole Miss in the mix, along with Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

Auburn High school linebacker Reuben Foster, the nation’s top linebacker, has been committed to Alabama and Auburn and both of those schools hope late-comers Washington, Georgia and Miami don’t steal him away.

Auburn has multiple interests here in Muscle Shoals 4-star lineman Dee Liner and top-rated weakside linebacker Carl Lawson. Auburn hopes to hang on to both after the coaching change.

Auburn commit Jeremy Johnson's 34-yard TD pass lifts East over West in Army All-American Bowl (video) (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2013/01/auburn_commit_jeremy_johnsons.html)

Quote
With his team trailing 8-7, the Auburn commit faced a fourth-and-16 with just 3:59 to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

With the game on the line, he lofted a pass over several defenders into the hands of James Quick for a 34-yard score which proved to be the game-winner as the East team defeated the West, 15-8.

The Carver-Montgomery senior went 4-for-6 for 64 yards and a touchdown for the East in front of more than 40,000 fans at the San Antonio Alamodome.

"I feel great," Johnson said after the game. "Throwing a game-winning touchdown? I know everyone in Montgomery is happy. I know they're all watching, so I feel good. This whole week was great."

Alabama commit Derrick Henry gained 53 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries, while Auburn target Derrick Green carried eight times for 49 yards.

"There's a high level of competition out here," Henry said. "I wanted to come out here and show that I could be effective. I work really hard when the camera's not on me."

Quick, who committed to Louisville during the game, was named the (co-)Most Valuable Player of the game after catching three balls for 71 yards and the score.

Vonn Bell, the 5-star safety from Ridgeland, Ga. nearly committed after the completion of his senior season. One of the main reasons he waited was to give a fair shake to his childhood favorite, Tennessee.

His other two finalists are Ohio State and rumored frontrunner Alabama.

“I waited because I wanted to go visit the campuses again, and give Tennessee a chance because they lost their coach at the end of the year,” Bell said. “I want to give everybody an equal and fair shot.”

How does Bell feel about the Volunteers? “They’re in a slump right now but I think Butch Davis … I mean, Butch Jones, is the guy that will bring them out of that slump.”

“Alabama … it just speaks for itself,” Bell said. They are in the national championship again. Coach Nick Saban, he’s a DB coach, and he’s going to be coaching me. So Coach Saban has got guys into the NFL, so his name speaks for himself.”

Jesuit LB Jordan Mastrogiovanni flips commitment from Oklahoma to Texas A&M

Mastrogiovanni, a three-star prospect according to Rivals.com, was the Sooners' only inside linebacker commit in the 2013 class, and Aber reports that the Sooners' other two LB commits -- OLBs Jordan Evans and Dominique Alexander -- could end up playing other positions in college.

Meanwhile, the Aggies add a seventh linebacker to an already massive class that includes 35 current commits. Rivals ranks A&M's 2013 class as the 8th-best in the nation.

According to the Oklahoman, Mastrogiovanni had considering flipping to A&M earlier in the summer after taking an official visit to College Station, but ultimately decided to stick with OU at the time. It's unknown why he chose to switch now, although Oklahoma is fresh off a 41-13 thrashing at the hands of A&M in the Cotton Bowl.

“I knew when he decided, it would be without a lot of fanfare,” Itawamba AHS coach Toby Collums said. “That’s kind of how it happened. He just quietly goes about his business. He’s handled the process very well. We’re proud of him.”

He narrowed his 10-offer sheet down to Mississippi State and Ole Miss on Dec. 20, with Vanderbilt and Georgia close by.

Shumpert was named Gatorade Mississippi Player of the Year, Division 1-4A Player of the Year and Mississippi Association of Coaches First Team All-State.

White Station wide receiver Donald Gray became the second Memphis-area player to commit to Mississippi State in as many days.

Gray, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound athlete, chose the Bulldogs over scholarship offers from Arkansas, Nebraska, Ole Miss and Tennessee, among others.

He chose MSU because he liked “the staff, the chance to play early, the style of offense, and the receivers coach (Tim Brewster),” according to White Station coach Devin Rutherford.

Gray could also help MSU’s chances with teammate Jason Carr, a consensus four-star defensive end. Carr, who is verbally committed to Tennessee, is visiting Tennessee this weekend, Alabama next weekend, and then will choose between LSU, MSU, and Ole Miss.

Toney visited Auburn over the weekend, and says he'll return for another recruiting weekend to try to help swing other players. Two of his overall targets are linebacker Reuben Foster and defensive tackle Dee Liner, who committed to the previous coaching staff. Foster spent the weekend at Washington and Liner was at Alabama.

"We've got to get Reuben back, for sure; and Dee Liner, we've got to get his head back on the right track," Toney said.

Toney said he spent the weekend talking to the new coaching staff. He was one of eight visitors.

"They're totally different from the old coaching staff," he said. "I actually like this group better.  They're nicer – I'm not saying the old coaching staff wasn't nice – but I think they're more family type. They have a reason to be here."

"He's a great guy. I love him to death. I treat him like a granddad. I would say dad, but he's a lot older than that," Toney said with a smile regarding Ellis Johnson.

Cam Toney is a 5.7-rated Inside Linebacker.

DB Cam Sutton still committed to Tennessee, but says he's considering Auburn after visit (http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index.ssf/2013/01/db_cameron_sutton_still_commit.html)

Cornerback Cam Sutton says his weekend visit to Auburn went well enough that he's "definitely opened myself back up" to recruiting wars, though he remains committed to Tennessee.

"They've got all the same mindset, to win a championship, and that's what I like," Sutton said Sunday.

"They have a very high chance, a very good chance," Sutton said.

Sutton says he has also scholarship offers from Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Missouri, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech

Cam Sutton is a 5.6-rated CB.

Quote
Brandon King, a junior college safety from Highlands (Kan.) Community College, has cancelled all of his other official visits and plans to sign his national letter of intent on signing day.

King, a 6-foot-2, 213-pounder, is being targeted by Auburn to play the hybrid linebacker/safety required of Johnson's 4-2-5 defense, the base defense he used at South Carolina.

In Auburn's defense, Johnson plans to call the spot the "Star." At South Carolina, Johnson called the spot the Spur.

"I'm pretty comfortable with the position, I played it in junior college," King said. "What they have me playing, they want me to be able to cover and blitz off the edge, which is pretty much what I utilized at (Highlands)."

King, who was named a First Team All-Conference pick after his sophomore season at Highlands, will also be asked to learn all three safety positions in Auburn's base defense.

After talking to Charlie Harbison and Ellis Johnson, King has a clear idea of how the Tigers want to use him, and his responsibilities may include more than the Star.

"I'll be outside, rocking down in the box, playing deep thirds," King said. "Pretty much exchanging positions, being able to play three positions."

The unbelievable ride Chris Jones has experienced over the last six months, from anonymity to superstardom, isn’t supposed to happen anymore.

With the proliferation of recruiting services and reporters dedicated to discovering top football prospects, high-level players don’t slip under the radar anymore.

But that’s exactly what happened to the 6-foot-6, 250-pound defensive end. When he committed to Mississippi State in June he was rated a two-star player and completely unknown to everyone on the national scene.

Now he is the No. 1 prospect on The Clarion-Ledger’s list of Mississippi’s 10 Most Wanted recruits. He’s an Under Armour All-American, a five-star prospect who will be ranked the No. 5 player in the country in the next 247Sports rankings, according to national analyst Gerry Hamilton. (http://www.clarionledger.com/article/20130113/sports06/301130041/houston-s-jones-develops-into-state-s-top-prospect)
 
Quote
The list of schools trying to get involved now with the new and improved Jones is endless, though Alabama, Florida and Ole Miss stick out for him. The new schools are all aggressive in their pitches to convince Jones to reconsider his commitment to MSU.

One Alabama assistant told Jones he was engaged, not married to the Bulldogs. A Florida assistant informed him of past Gators defensive lineman who made it to the NFL, and that he could do the same if he came and followed the process. Ole Miss has gone with a more “faith-based” approach and is “more humble” than the rest.

Jones has tried to stay as even-keeled as possible, and just takes it all in. He has consulted with his family and his mom encouraged him to take a visit to Alabama.

He says he’ll consider visiting Alabama, but is adamant in his commitment to MSU.

I’ve seen some folks scoffing at the verbal commitment of four-star running back Kailo Moore to Ole Miss.

It’s Moore’s third verbal commitment, his second to the Rebels sandwiched on each side of a commitment to rival Mississippi State.

Of course, people want to take off on the word “commitment,” which is fair. It’s taken on a definition of its own in recruiting. But it’s not like Moore is the first redefine the word...

Moore is the fourth running back in the Ole Miss class, and the Rebels return three of their top four running backs, two of them freshmen.

That’s a lot of competition at the position. If all the commits sign it wouldn’t be a total surprise to see someone in the group of seven play somewhere else.

LSU's early enrollees include athlete John Diarse (6-foot, 210 pounds) from Monroe Neville; offensive tackle Fehoko Fanaika (6-6, 340), a junior-college transfer from the College of San Mateo in California; quarterback Anthony Jennings (6-2, 205) from Marietta, Ga.; defensive end Christian LaCouture (6-5, 267) from Lincoln (Neb.) Southwest; offensive tackle Ethan Pocic (6-6, 285) from Lemont, Ill., and tight end Logan Stokes (6-4, 240) from Northeast Mississippi Community College.

Stokes has already signed his national letter of intent with LSU, the only member of the 2013 class to do so.

All of LSU’s early enrollees are eligible to participate in spring practice, which is expected to begin in March.

LSU is still waiting on two other early enrollees: quarterback Hayden Rettig (6-4, 222) of Los Angeles Cathedral and wide receiver Avery Johnson (6-2, 180) of Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia and Pompano Beach, Fla.

Rettig’s issue is believed to be a minor paperwork matter. Johnson, younger brother of former LSU All-American cornerback Patrick Peterson, is waiting for the NCAA Clearinghouse to approve his test score.

Johnson’s father, Patrick Peterson Sr., said Monday he remains confident his son will be able to enroll at LSU for the spring semester.

“For sure,” Peterson said in a text message.

LSU has a total of 26 commitments/signees for its Class of 2013.

Aside from Stokes, the rest of LSU’s class may sign their national letters of intent beginning Feb. 6.

Meanwhile, LSU has picked up its first five-star prospect for 2013 without adding another commitment.

Tre’Davious White (5-11, 170), a cornerback/athlete prospect from Shreveport Green Oaks, earned a fifth star from 24/7 Sports after his impressive performance Jan. 5 in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.

The game was a showcase for White’s coverage and kick return skills, allowing him to rocket from No. 83 to No. 9 on the 24/7 Sports Top 247 list of the nation’s best prospects.

The new ranking makes White 24/7’s No. 1 prospect in Louisiana, a distinction he also earned from Rivals and Scout.

LSU’s recruiting class is ranked No. 5 by Scout, No. 6 by Rivals, No. 7 by 24/7 Sports and No. 8 by ESPN.

Rettig’s issue is believed to be a minor paperwork matter. Johnson, younger brother of former LSU All-American cornerback Patrick Peterson, is waiting for the NCAA Clearinghouse to approve his test score.

Johnson’s father, Patrick Peterson Sr., said Monday he remains confident his son will be able to enroll at LSU for the spring semester.

“For sure,” Peterson said in a text message.

LSU has a total of 26 commitments/signees for its Class of 2013.

http://theadvocate.com/sports/lsu/4917440-123/lsu-football-welcomes-six-early

Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette said Wednesday that quarterback Hayden Rettig and wide receiver Avery Johnson were admitted to LSU as enrollees for the Spring 2013 semester.

Classes began Monday.

Rettig (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) of Los Angeles Cathedral, was delayed by a paperwork issue.

Johnson (6-1, 185) of Pompano Beach (Fla.) Blanche Ely had to wait for a test score to be approved by the NCAA Clearinghouse. He signed with LSU in 2012 and prepped at Hargrave (Va.) Military Academy this past year.

Johnson is the younger brother of former LSU All-American cornerback Patrick Peterson. (http://theadvocate.com/sports/4935614-123/last-of-lsus-early-enrollees)

MSU currently has one quarterback commitment, Cord Sandberg of Bradenton, Fla. But Sandberg is a very good baseball player as well, and he could wind up going that route depending on where he’s drafted this summer.

State is chasing two other QBs, both of whom have already given verbal commitments to other schools: Joshua Dobbs and John O’Korn. Dobbs, of Alpharetta, Ga., has committed to Arizona State; O’Korn, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is a Houston commit.

Dobbs is scheduled to visit Arizona State this weekend. He has an offer from MSU; O’Korn doesn’t yet. (http://djournal.com/view/full_story/21448855/article-Football-Recruiting--Bulldogs-look-to-add-QB-to-solid-class)

Auburn hosting multiple recruits committed elsewhere for official visits (http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index.ssf/2013/01/auburn_hosting_multiple_recrui.html)

Quote
Leading the pack will be uncommitted five-star defensive back Tony Conner from powerhouse South Panola High School in Batesville, Mississippi. Conner, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound five-star prospect, visited Alabama last weekend and will look to see how Auburn stacks up against the Tide before making his final decision on National Signing Day.

Joining Conner will be a handful of elite prospects currently committed elsewhere, including a pair of star wide receivers. Texas A&M commit Tony Stevens and Nebraska commit Dominic Walker are teammates at Orlando's Evans High School and the friends and teammates will visit the Plains together this weekend. The two have talked publicly about the appeal of possibly playing together at the college level, and Malzahn and staff are offering just such an opportunity to the two star playmakers.

The Tigers will also look to steal away a top commit from Notre Dame as four-star running back Tarean Folston takes a somewhat surprising visit to the Plains. (Folston is thought to be a better fit for the SEC in part because his girl friend is real.)

Florida commit James Hearns will be in town with the Tallahassee native opting to push back his official visit to the Gators in favor of heading to Auburn this weekend.

Auburn will also look to continue their pursuit of Arkansas commit Khari Harding this weekend.

Nick Saban making it rain in Georgia. I feel like it's raining all over the world. (http://www.ajc.com/weblogs/college-recruiting/2013/jan/20/nick-saban-presence-greatness/)

Quote
When this A-lister walked down the halls, there were people who actually broke down in tears upon sight.

“Yes, it was unbelievable,” Ridgeland High School coach Mark Mariakis said with a laugh, confirming the tears of joy that were shed at his school.

  “It was a state of disbelief that Coach Saban was in our school. It was a frenzy. We had to strategically go down the hall at certain times, meeting teachers, and going from Point A to Point B. Coach Saban was as professional and classy, and handled it as well as anybody could’ve. I know he’s used to it.

  “Once one kid or teacher saw him, the text messages and tweets started flying. The next thing you know, little heads are poking outside of classrooms. And it was hard to tell the kids not to come out and get autographs when the teachers were coming out and getting autographs.”

  The Great One was at Ridgeland to visit one of Alabama’s top remaining targets, 5-star safety Vonn Bell. The funny thing is that this was Saban second trip to Ridgeland. On his first one around four years ago (to sign another Ridgeland player), Saban could strut by the classrooms with only a few people paying attention.

  “But that was before Alabama had won the first one,” Mariakis said.

Notre Dame running back commit Tarean Folston says he likes Auburn's offense during visit (http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index.ssf/2013/01/notre_dame_running_back_commit.html)

Quote
The 5-foot-10, 200-pounder said today he liked what he heard from head coach Gus Malzahn and offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, and said he was impressed with running backs coach Rich Bisaccia,

"Coach Bisaccia is my man," Folston said.

Folston also knows Auburn assistant Dameyune Craig from his coaching days at Florida State.

"He recruited me at Florida State, and they were in my Top 3 before I made my commitment," Folston said. "Coach Craig is a cool guy. I can relate to him on a lot of stuff. We communicate a lot."

Folston rushed for 1,722 yards and 16 touchdowns last season in Cocoa.

Four-star receiver Tony Stevens flips commitment from A&M to Auburn

First high school player to commit since Gus Malzahn was hired as the head coach. (http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index.ssf/2013/01/four-star_receiver_terry_steve.html)

Quote
The 6-foot-3, 175-pound receiver had 29 catches for 516 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012 at Evans High School in Orlando.

Stevens said a recruiting pitch from wide receiver coach Dameyune Craig carried a lot of weight.

"It was big. He's a cool guy. He's funny. He's just down to earth and knows how to have fun," Stevens said.

Stevens was recruited by Craig when he was an assistant at Florida State. Stevens also had offers from Florida and Georgia, among others.

Stevens figures he'll have a chance to play early. "It was a factor, but anywhere I go I'm going to have to compete."

He said he was also impressed by the facilities, especially the business school.

Holy Cross wide receiver Kevin Spears commited to LSU Saturday night. The 6-foot-2, 191-pound Spears was on an official visit and confirmed the news via text message. (http://highschoolsports.nola.com/news/article/-6447321129330375370/lsu-gets-commitment-from-holy-cross-receiver-kevin-spears/)

Quote
Spears, the 27th commitment, is the third wide receiver in the class and fills a position of need for the Tigers.

Spears, the one-time basketball player who has played football for only two years, flew under the radar until late in his senior season.

Spears committed to Louisiana Tech after a visit last weekend. But after learning of his commitment to the Bulldogs, LSU recruiting coordinator and running backs coach Frank Wilson called Spears to discuss a scholarship offer from LSU.

Spears was the only uncommitted prospect on campus for the Tigers this weekend, and his commitment likely ends LSU's hunt for prep-level wide receivers for the 2013 class.

Alvin Kamara, the AJC’s Mr. Football, took an official visit to co-leader Alabama over the weekend and ranked it as an “8” on a scale of 1-10.
 
It was the first recruiting trip for the prized running back from Norcross. (http://www.ajc.com/weblogs/college-recruiting/2013/jan/21/uga-rb-targets-ranks-alabama-visit-8/)

Quote
Kamara’s other co-leader is UGA, where he will go on Friday.

“The only reason it wasn’t a 10 is because I had like 6 hours of sleep the whole weekend, so I’m exhausted.” Recruits are kept on a frantic pace when taking official visits to colleges.
 
Kamara and Nick Saban, who has guided Alabama to three BCS championships in the last four years, had a long and revealing conversation.
 
“Coach (Saban) said I’m ‘different’ and that it’s good to different, as far as my playing ability. He explained to me the matchup problems that I can create at the running back position – being able to be a great ‘running back’ but also having the versatility and the skillset to be able to motion of out the backfield and be an effective weapon in the passing game.”

Alabama has three other running backs committed for 2013 class, including 5-star Derrick Henry (the ex-UGA commit) and Walton High School standout Tyren Jones.

“I mean this in the nicest way possible … I don’t really care what people think or say about that situation,” Kamara said. “I’m fully aware of the three running backs coming in my class, so at this point I just laugh when people talk Alabama and depth.”
 
Meanwhile, UGA has only one 2013 commit at running back, AJ Turman of Orlando – who is ranked lower than Kamara across the board. Kamara is rated as the nation’s No. 4 RB by ESPN.

Who is Kamara favoring right now? “No one is leading right now,” he said.

He has already taken official visits to South Carolina and Tennessee and plans to visit Auburn this upcoming weekend.

“After that, I’ll probably take a week to think about it and then decide where I want to play my college football,” Walton said. “I do plan to stay in the SEC.”

Wenonah senior De'Runnya Wilson, the reigning 2012 Birmingham News Metro Basketball Player of the Year, committed to play basketball and football in Starkville on Monday night.

Wilson chose the Bulldogs over an offer and heavy interest in Auburn. The 6-foot-6 Wilson has been a part of back-to-back state championship basketball teams at Wenonah.

He returned to the football field for the first time since his freshman season this fall and responded with a dominating effort. Despite very few targets per game, Wilson had 23 catches for 482 yards and seven touchdowns.

He showed of a variety of skills, including the ability to boom the ball on kickoffs and field goals. The willing downfield blocker also had three sacks in limited reps on the defensive line.

He averaged 16 points and 13 rebounds per game last season for the Dragons on the hardwood.

Wilson said his recruiting is "done" and no longer plans to take the official visit to Auburn he's planned on taking before National Signing Day.

"Tim Brewster is why I am going to play in Starkville," Wilson said. "He feels like a father to me. I just like the way he came at me. Most coaches were telling me I was going to be a star at their school.

"That coach (Brewster) came at me like he was going to push me to the limit," he said.

Denham Springs defensive lineman Tevin Lawson is weighing his options after being asked by LSU about potentially grayshirting.

"LSU asked him to grayshirt Monday morning," Denham Springs Coach Dru Nettles said. "He and his family are pursuing what other avenues or options there may be and what may be best — if that's the grayshirt or if that's some other school."

The issue stemmed from concern whether Lawson would qualify academically, which Nettles assured would be the case.

Denver Kirkland, Al Golden meet as Miami tries to clear the air (http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/blogs/recruiting/os-denver-kirkland-al-golden-meet-today-as-miami-tries-to-save-face-20130202,0,4728932.post)

University of Miami had pulled a scholarship offer from one of its top local football targets Denver Kirkland, the U was taking some pretty hard hits around the blog world.

UM is now looking to perhaps resolve the matter, or, if nothing else, offer the Kirkland family an apology. UM coaches met with the family of Kirkland this afternoon at 3 in Coral Gables.

Kirkland was obviously upset Thursday night when UM assistant coach Michael Barrow offered Kirkland an ultimatum, of sorts, asking him if he was willing to commit on the spot following a celebration of his team, Miami Booker T. Washington's, Florida Class 4A state championship.

Kirkland said he wanted to wait until National Signing Day, and so Barrow told him the program would be going in a different direction.

On Friday the 6-foot-5, 330-pound offensive lineman said he was down to Florida State and Arkansas as his two finalists. He was in Fayetteville last weekend for his final visit.

Kirkland was taking hits of his own from Miami fans through his Twitter account, and posted this "tweet" on Friday:

Denver Kirkland @15HARLEM_BOSKI

http://247sports.com/Article/Drama-filled-weekend-in-SEC-recruiting-114646

Five-star defensive end Chris Jones (Houston, Miss.) continues to be a tug-of-war between in-state rivals Ole Miss and Mississippi State. Late Friday night and early Saturday, reliable sources indicated to 247Sports and multiple other outlets that Jones was in Oxford, Miss., for an unofficial visit.

Jones then denied he was in Oxford via text message to multiple reporters.

Jones then met with the Mississippi State coaching staff and went to Starkville for an unofficial, attending the Bulldogs’ basketball game. After the game, he went on the record again saying he was heading back to Houston, Miss.

Then, late Saturday night, Kipp Adams of ESPN.com reported Jones was back in Oxford...

Not to be outdone, five-star linebacker Reuben Foster (Auburn, Ala.), who did not take a scheduled official visit to San Diego State, was at Auburn, then abruptly left and ended up at Alabama in the evening, along with four-star Tide running back target and lean Alvin Kamara.

There were plenty of rumors as to why Foster left Auburn suddenly (no confirmation on any of it), but most agreed it was not a good sign for the Tigers, who looked to be in great shape to re-land their former commit.

Foster is scheduled to announce his decision on Monday...

It looks like Alabama could be in great position to close with a bang and round out the nation’s top overall class. Five-star A’Shawn Robinson, who has been committed to Texas, now has the Crimson Tide on top. Then, you have the Foster situation that could end up going Alabama’s way. The Tide is involved with several other highly-regarded prospects that could end up in Tuscaloosa as well.

Former Mississippi State wide receiver Chad Bumphis caused a bit of an uproar Tuesday when he made some insinuations about what he deemed questionable recruiting tactics used by a certain school against whom his team has a, shall we say, less-than-cordial rivalry a times.

Bumphis, a Tupelo native who recently completed his eligibility with the Bulldogs and is preparing for the NFL draft, had this to say on the eve of national signing day:

chad bumphis @ImSo_BalisMade1 
With NSD near, recruits listen. DON'T go with the money! After its gone ur stuck at a place you probably don't even like for 3-5 years!

with Collins possibly switching we might wind up last in the recruiting rankings in the SEC. can Bielema really outcoach Saban, Sumlin, Miles, Gus, and Freeze to a level to make up the massive disparity in high level talent or do we chalk this up as a learning and rushed year and hope for improvements when they have a full season?

This is what I've been saying. The SEC-W has been recruiting very well for a few years, but now we have Ole Miss with the #5 class and Texas A&M right up there, too. We may have the best class we've ever had next year and still finish last in the SEC-W.

The rich keep getting richer and SEC-W schools are getting to where they all just reload every year. It's not just about reloading, but in the past, schools might have a lot of great players, but not all of them were great. Now, if a 5-star player doesn't work out at Alabama, it's no big deal, because there may be 2 more backing him up.

I never thought I'd say this, but it may be a long time until anyone outside the SEC wins another national title.

Auburn's 2013 recruiting class finally appears to be complete after WR Derrick Griffin picks Miami

Barring any unforeseen surprises, Auburn's finalized 2013 signing class will be the one the Tigers announced on National Signing Day.


Four-star wide receiver Derrick Griffin, a former Texas A&M commit who visited Auburn the weekend after Signing Day, announced that he'd signed with Miami on Tuesday night.

"LIKE LEBRON SAID IMMA TAKE MY TALENT TO SOUTH BEACH!!! THE U!!!!" Griffin tweeted after signing his national letter of intent.

Griffin plans to play basketball at Miami in addition to football, the same combination that previously landed Auburn target Corn Elder.

Karr linebacker Donnie Alexander commits to LSU

When it comes to the talent-laden team at Edna Karr, all eyes on the LSU Tigers’ 2014 recruiting effort have been on players like wide receiver Speedy Noil and defensive end Gerald Willis.

Noil and Willis may become stars of LSU’s class one day, but on Sunday teammate Donnie Alexander beat them both to the punch by committing to the Tigers.

A slender 6-foot-1, 196-pound outside linebacker built much in the mold prized by LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis, Alexander becomes the fifth commitment of the Tigers’ 2014 class.

Though not ranked by any of the national recruiting services at this point, those same recruiting services reported that Alexander received an offer from LSU coach Les Miles on Saturday and quickly jumped on it.

Trouble is, coaches at Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Tennessee have said the same thing.

"They all told me the same thing," said Doss. "They told me I was the face of the program."

Doss has become a hot commodity in the last six weeks, getting offers from all four of those schools last month. He's also been offered by Southern Miss and believes North Carolina could be next.

"Things are over for me now," Upchurch said. "I am committed to LSU."

Upchurch, a 6-foot-2 and 200 pound wide receiver, said he gave LSU coach Les Miles the good news at the end of practice.

"Right when the practice ended, me and my family went up to Coach Miles and he started asking us how everything went," Upchurch said. "We told him there was no other place I wanted to be but LSU, and I went ahead and committed to him right there on the field.

"We all felt comfortable. Coach Miles was really pumped up. He was excited and said that I am officially a Tiger." (http://lsu.247sports.com/Article/Tony-Upchurch-has-committed-to-LSU-121475)

Saban wanted a coach who wouldn't be overwhelmed with the task of rebuilding the offensive line, a coach who could handle the pressure at Alabama and a coach who could make a smooth transition both on and off the field.

The former Miami assistant coach faced a much more difficult situation when he accepted the top position at Florida International six years ago.

Josh Ward: Auburn has not had a good week on the recruiting trail.

Nothing has happened specifically with any 2014 recruits. It’s the negative stories surrounding Auburn’s program that will create such a challenge for the Tigers as they try to rebuild the program following a disastrous 2012 season.

First, there was Selena Roberts’ report on Wednesday alleging payments to players, grade changes and involvement in the robbery case of former Auburn safety Mike McNeil. Then came a Thursday report from ESPN The Magazine alleging Auburn covered up failed drug tests during and after the Tiger’s national championship run in 2010.

Auburn is already behind most of the SEC in recruiting for 2014. The Tigers have two commitments for the upcoming class, which ranks Auburn 11th in the conference and 39th in the nation by Rivals.com.

Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn put together a strong staff that should be able to hold its own on the recruiting trail. But there’s only so much any staff can overcome.

Parents will ask a lot of questions and Auburn will likely be prepared with many of the right answers. But opposing schools in the SEC will continue to point out Auburn’s past troubles, which will lead to culture questions about Auburn’s program...

Defensive back Jamal Adams from Hebron High School in Lewisville, Texas, knows plenty about the Big 12.

That’s one reason he’s anxious to visit some schools in the SEC.

Adams has offers from programs around the country, including Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas and Texas A&M.

Adams, who’s already visited Baylor, Oklahoma and Texas, told the Dallas Morning News his next visit will be to A&M...

Adams is only the latest prospect from Texas to show a strong interest in the SEC. It’s an interest that has increased in the last year thanks to Texas A&M’s arrival and early success in the league.

That doesn’t mean schools like Oklahoma and Texas will no longer be able to recruit in their own backyard. They’ll have plenty of success there in the future. But they’ll also have to deal with recruits showing more interest in the SEC.

An example: Gilmer, Texas, wide receiver Josh Walker, a Texas A&M commitment who last month told Sporting News that the Aggies have jumped Texas in the eyes of many recruits.

Alabama picked up its fifth commitment of the 2014 recruiting class on Wednesday when Opelika cornerback Stephen Roberts pledged his commitment to the Crimson Tide. Roberts, a 6-foot, 177-pound defensive back rated a four-star prospect by 247Sports and ESPN, informed Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart of his decision after Smart visited Opelika to observe Roberts during spring practice.

Roberts, who visited Alabama for their A-Day spring game last weekend, said he grew up an Auburn fan but that his childhood preferences didn't factor into his decision.

"Being a fan and being a player are two totally different things," Roberts said. "I have always rooted for Auburn as a fan but when it comes time to making the decision about what's best for me as a player going forward, you can't think about those things. Alabama has put a lot of defensive backs into the NFL in the last few years and I believe they will give me the best chance to develop into the best player I can be."

Rated as the nation's No. 23 cornerback by the 247Composite rankings...

5-11, 190 Newton County ATH Jamoral Graham became State's second verbal in the '14 class.

Graham is ranked as the third best player in the '14 class by 247Composite and a four-star.

Offensively as a junior Graham rushed for 495 yards and six touchdowns, and he had 24 receptions for 464 yards and five more scores. He totaled 21 tackles, one interception and seven pass break-ups in the secondary.

“I feel comfortable on either side,” said Graham. “It really doesn’t matter to me. I do enjoy receiver more, and I love having the ball in my hands.

“You get the ball more on offense and don’t touch it much on defense. But it doesn’t really matter where I play at Mississippi State.”

“I am just working out this summer, and I am only going to Mississippi State’s camp,” said Graham. “I am shutting down my recruiting, and that feels good not to have any pressure going into my senior year.”

MSU’s first 2014 commitment was Memphis Westwood athlete Nikia Cathey.

"A lot of people say that Bama has a lot of linebackers, but I really don't look at (it like that) because either way I have to work hard for my spot. I have nothing guaranteed. If I would've committed to Bama, I really don't care who is playing in front of me or who's there, I'm still going to work hard for a spot."

Auburn gets verbal from Moncrief

Two days after landing the top prospect in the Mobile area in St. Paul's linebacker Tre Williams, Auburn reportedly got another commitment from the Gulf Coast area on Friday. Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College safety Derrick Moncrief committed to the Tigers on Friday.

Moncrief, who also had offers from Oklahoma State and Kentucky, said Auburn "just felt like home."

"They make sure you get your grades," he said. "The facilities are just amazing. I just want to be a part of the championship run they're going to be on."

Moncrief (6-3, 226) was a three-star prospect coming out of Prattville in 2012, and is now considered a four-star prospect by 247 Sports, which ranked him as the top junior-college safety in the country.

Bama has non-committable "offers" out to two Georgia high school quarterbacks, Gainesville’s Deshaun Watson (committed to Clemson) and Pierce County’s Tyler Harris.

"It is our philosophy at certain positions that we really like to learn a lot about players and one of the best ways to learn about a player is when they come and visit you, because you're limited in terms of the contact you can have with them off-campus," Saban told al.com.

"To get some of them to come here in the summer I think is a really big tool in evaluation as well as an opportunity to get to know guys, to see if they have the right character and attitude to fit in your program."

Elijah Hood, five-star running back from Charlotte Catholic, who committed to Notre Dame in April, tweeted a vine on Tuesday night of a letter marked with the Alabama logo being flushed down a toilet.

"Dang," a voice says, "Nick Saban hooked your boy up. Roll Toilet."

Hood, of course, isn't the only high school kid who's ever jabbed at rivals or said something he might later regret on Twitter. Former Auburn signee Zeke Pike sparred openly with Alabama fans after committing to the Tigers in 2011.

http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2013/06/heres_one_prospect_who_doesnt.html

None of the big three listed Hood as having an offer from Bama. The report states that the envelope was hand written (no word if multi-colored caligraphy was used).

http://www.ajc.com/weblogs/college-recruiting/2013/jun/04/5-star-flushes-alabama-letters-down-toilet-twitter

Sometimes the stars just don't align. So it was with the Class of 2011 in the state of Alabama.

A glance at the Press-Register's final Elite 18 list from 2011 shows that five of the top six prospects in the state that year are either no longer with the teams that signed them or are, in the case of Alabama's Marvin Shinn, expected to transfer before this fall.

The announcement last week that Auburn linebacker Chris Landrum plans to transfer to Jacksonville State brings the number of departed or departing players off the 2011 Elite 18 to six - seven if you add former Auburn defensive lineman Devaunte Sigler, who just missed the list.

Contrast that with the fact that only five players on the 2011 Elite 18 are expected to start or contribute significantly in 2013 to the programs that signed them.

http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2013/06/numbers_dwindling_from_state_o.html

With off field and performance issues, signing stars is only one step.

Miami landed one of the top offensive lineman recruits for the 2014 class last month with the verbal pledge of Kc McDermott.

McDermott’s account of his interaction with Meyer is… well… it’s something! After telling Meyer he wasn’t interested in Ohio State, McDermott said the coach was shocked, as if he’d “never been told no in his life.” McDermott went on to say Meyer “looked like he was a baby about to cry. It was so funny.” (http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/06/06/miami-commit-on-turning-away-meyer-it-looked-like-he-was-a-baby-about-to-cry)

Kc claims his coach teared up and had to go to his office to laugh.

Guess it beats picking a cap from a table.

Georgia a second 'home' for Auburn as it ramps up recruiting efforts under Malzahn (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2013/06/georgia_a_second_home_for_aubu.html)

Quote
"We're always going to be home first (in Alabama), and Georgia, with us being so close to the line, we really consider Georgia home as well," Auburn's tight ends coach Fountain said. "Coach (Gus) Malzahn's focus this year is he wanted to get things right in our own home state and of course Georgia, that's going to be our main care. We'll do some recruiting outside of that but that's going to be our main focus."

Auburn is making strides in its quest to "get  [stuff]  right" inside Alabama, where the Tigers have picked up four commitments from the recruiting hotbed inside and near Mobile, an area usually dominated by Alabama since Nick Saban's arrival in 2007. Auburn receivers coach Dameyune Craig, a Mobile native, is the man responsible for the Tigers' success in the area under Malzahn.

Eight of Auburn's nine commitments are from the states of Alabama and Georgia. Fourteen of Auburn's 34 "top targets" hail from Georgia, according to 247sports.com. Twelve of the players have four-star ratings or better.

Smith wrote: "The difficulty LSU had stretching the field last year was evident to all. And putting aside the combination of questionable play calling, an ever-changing group of offensive linemen and inconsistent play from quarterback Zack Mettenberger, leaves an offense that lacked big plays from the wide receiver position."

A month ago Jordan Harris declared Florida State his leader and told reporters he was close to committing.

On Friday Harris surprised some when he verbally committed to Mississippi State, despite not visiting the campus yet. The biggest reason why the 6-foot-5, 305-pound offensive lineman from Stephenson High School in Georgia opted for MSU over FSU was conference affiliation.

“Mississippi State is turning out to be one of the best schools in the SEC coming up,” Harris explained. “I think it will be a great place for me and my family. Florida State is in a good conference, but it doesn’t compare to the SEC.”

Harris bills himself as an offensive tackle that excels at “pass-blocking, talking on the field, calling out blitzes, and getting his running back 100 yards a game.”

Harris plans to visit Mississippi State very soon and said he might take a visit to East Carolina because he has family in the area. (http://A month ago Jordan Harris declared Florida State his leader and told reporters he was close to committing.

Quote
Baton Rouge star Dylan Moses is used to making headlines already at the age of 15, picking up national attention after earning scholarship offers from LSU and Alabama when he was still in 8th grade. Now the 15-year-old football phenom will take another step towards national prominence when he appears on the cover of the latest issue of ESPN The Magazine, which appears on newsstands next Friday.

Moses, a 6-foot-1, 215-pound athlete who will play running back and linebacker for University Lab High School this fall, landed his first scholarship offer last summer from the hometown LSU Tigers last summer and picked up his second offer from the Crimson Tide in January. Since then, Moses has picked up offers from Florida, Florida State, Nebraska, Ole Miss and UCLA...

After four arrests before the start of his senior [Fall 2010] season, his coach kicked him off the team.

Fleming took the junior college route, making a stop at Copiah-Lincoln CC. Fleming could not evade his legal troubles and served a short jail sentence for unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling during his freshman year.

“The only concern I have with a program like Alabama, with them being so good, you would think it’s going to take a while for you to develop and actually see the field. But believe it or not, between them and UGA, I have a lot higher chance of seeing the field earlier at Alabama. If you look at both depth charts at both schools, I actually have a better chance of seeing the field earlier at Alabama. Plus I always had a lot of interest in Alabama.”

Christian Miller is a 4-star recruit from Columbia, S.C., and the son of former NFL and South Carolina linebacker Corey Miller.  (http://www.ajc.com/weblogs/college-recruiting/2013/jul/25/christian-miller-alabama-edges-uga-nations-no-3-ol)

Miller said Alabama was his favorite all along, but wasn’t sure he had a committable offer he initially picked Florida last February.

Saban cleared up the confusion on how freshman OL Bradley Bozeman was allowed to join this year’s team on Friday.

Bozeman, who committed to Alabama in June 2011, was asked to take a “grayshirt” offer last January and delay his enrollment after suffering a season-ending knee injury as a high school senior.

How did that happen? Where did a roster spot open up for the two-time national champions?

At a Friday press conference, the mystery was solved: Saban said another freshman recruit, 4-star DT Darius Paige, was “medically discharged.”

"Darius Paige has medical issues that has caused our medical staff to think that it is not safe for him to play, so he has been medically disqualified," Saban said.

"He is here, and we are helping to support him. He will be on scholarship. he will get an education, but our medical staff is working with him right now to try to help improve his condition. I can't comment any further on that."

"Our numbers were where they needed to be, relative to initials and 85 and all of that," Saban said.

Hopefully, we blew him away on his unofficial visit here so much that he knows Arkansas is the place for him.

6'4" 225 (plus 30-40 puts him at a high of 265) 

Bama's OLBs that are in that range -
Adrian HUbbard (6'6" 252)
Xzavier Dickson (6'3" 265)
Reggie Ragland (6'2" 259 really an ILB)
Denzel Devall (6'2" 250)
Jonathan Allen (6'3" 264)
Ryan Anderson (6'2" 255)
FR Tim Williams (6'3" 235)

I understand that Bama runs a 3-4 and requires their OLBs to be more of the "stand-up DE" but they are still covering receivers and coming off the edge.  If you watch Gerri Green's highlight tape, he is primarily covering the #2 receiver and coming off the edge in a stand-up role.  He does have some film with his hand down.

Ole Miss lands talented North Panola duo (http://blogs.clarionledger.com/recruiting/2013/08/17/ole-miss-lands-talented-north-panola-duo)

Quote
Willie Hibbler and Justin Conner have played sports together since they were children.

Friday night the talented pair from North Panola High School decided to keep that connection going for at least a few more years. Hibbler, a junior, and Conner, a sophomore, verbally committed to Ole Miss following a jamboree win over Coahoma County.

“I think first of all the most important thing was the proximity, with it being so close to home,” said North Panola coach Derek King. “It’s SEC and to be able to have that option and be a 20-25 minute drive down the road was the biggest thing.

“…I think they felt most comfortable at Ole Miss. There was more familiarity because they know guys on the Ole Miss team already.”

Hibbler, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound receiver, chose the Rebels over scholarship offers from Vanderbilt and Memphis. He is ranked a four-star prospect by 247Composite...

Connor, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound sophomore running back ran a steady sub 4.5 40-yard time through the summer, according to King, with his best effort a 4.43 in Tupelo. His cousin Tony signed with the Rebels last February. He chose Ole Miss over a State offer.

Barbe wide receiver Trey Quinn became the 14th commitment to LSU's 2014 class when he pledged to the Tigers on Saturday.

Quinn selected LSU over Auburn, Clemson, Ole Miss, Texas, and Texas Tech. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder is the No. 7 prospect in the NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune Nifty 50 and is the No. 3 ranked receiver in the country according to ESPN.

Quinn, who has been timed as low as 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash, sits at 4,599 receiving yards for his career and needs 1,269 to break former Evangel receiver Abram Booty's state record. Quinn needs 1,758 yards to surpass national record holder Dorail Green-Beckham who is now at Missouri.

Success in Louisiana could be difference between good and great for Alabama's 2014 class

The difference between a good class and a great one for Alabama may not hinge on what happens in-state. It'll hinge on what happens in Louisiana.

Of the 18 prospects Alabama currently has committed in its 2014 class, only four are from Alabama -- counting Bo Scarbrough, who is from Tuscaloosa but recently transferred to IMG Academy in Bradenton...

West Monroe offensive tackle Cameron Robinson, New Orleans-St. Augustine running back Leonard Fournette, Monroe-Neville safety Laurence Jones -- the top three prospects in the state, according to Rivals.com -- were all in Tuscaloosa last weekend...

9th-grade phenom Dylan Moses featured on cover of ESPN The Magazine (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2013/06/9th-grade_phenom_and_alabama_r.html)


Age against the machine
Fifteen-year-old Dylan Moses is changing the college recruiting process

This story appears in ESPN The Magazine's July 8, Kids In Sports issue. (video at link) (http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/id/9417917/dylan-moses-15-lsu-tigers-youngest-recruit-ever-espn-magazine)

Quote
The Dylan Moses hype machine has been working overtime lately, and in an  evening scrimmage against St. Charles Catholic in LaPlace, the University Lab freshman did nothing to slow the engine.

Moses looked comfortable at linebacker, making a few impressive running tackles, then reeled off a 60-yard touchdown run from the backfield, capping a day in which all eyes were on him during his first organized competition at the high school level.

“The speed is very different,” Moses said of high school ball. “When I was running the ball, the hole would be wide open, but as soon as I’d look at it, it’d close right up.”

That didn’t stop Moses from busting through St. Charles’ defensive line and outrunning several Comets’ defenders along the edge on his way to the end zone.

Moses, who turned 15 in May, is 6-2, 220, was on the cover of ESPN The Magazine earlier in the summer, and has scholarship offers from LSU, Alabama and six other major college programs already.

His offer from LSU came over a year ago, before he had begun eighth grade. He is thought to be one of the youngest recruits ever for both LSU and Alabama.

“We know he’s a talented kid,” University Lab Coach Chad Mahaffey deadpanned. “He’s starting on defense, so we expect him to be a big player for us.”

LSU, Bama, Auburn, Tejas, Notre Dame, Georgia, Ole Miss, UCLA, Nebraska, Florida State and Florida are all reported to have tendered offers to the most publicized player in the Class of '17.

State QB commit Elijah Staley finally dismissed from high school team

Staley was benched for the second half of a 38-9 loss by Marietta Wheeler to Milton of Alpharetta. Staley's family members reportedly took to Twitter to criticize the decision, and Wheeler coach Mike Collins subsequently dismissed him from the team.

The 6-foot-6 Staley is also a top basketball recruit, and said when he committed to Mississippi State in June that he planned to play both sports for the Bulldogs. Paul Jones of 247 Sports reported Wednesday that Staley's father said his son is seeking to graduate from high school in December and enroll at MSU in January.

Wheeler is rated a three-star prospect in football, according to 247 Sports' composite rankings system. He was at one time committed to Vanderbilt, and also has football offers from Appalachian State, Boston College, Marshall, Massachusetts and Virginia.

Wheeler averaged 18 points per game as a junior in basketball, and is rated a three-star prospect in that sport as well.

FOI: A&M President R. Bowen Loftin committed a secondary NCAA infraction by tweeting a top football recruit

On June 14, Loftin — who is known not just for his colorful bow ties, but also student engagement and active social media use — tweeted out a seemingly innocuous message: "Enjoyed meeting you yesterday during your visit to #TAMU." Loftin has 26,640 followers on Twitter.

The target of the tweet was 16-year-old Jordan Davis, a 6-foot 4-inch, 250-pound tight end from Clear Lake, who tweeted back, "Yessir it was nice meeting you #gig'em."

Loftin's tweet was a violation of NCAA bylaw 13.10.5, which states that "a member institution shall not publicize (or arrange for publicity of) a prospective student-athlete's visit to the institution's campus...." (http://www.myaggienation.com/am_news/article_67aad6e8-f0aa-5d0b-b881-82a74eef2144.html)

3/4* Jackson (MS) Calloway DL Breelan Speaks gave a verbal to Ole Miss.

Three-star DL Breeland Speaks has committed to #OleMiss. Chose the Rebels over Florida State, Mississippi State and Arkansas.
— Ben Garrett (@SpiritBen) October 21, 2013

Speaks is a three-star prospect on Scout and 247Sports and a four-star prospect on Rivals and ESPN's recruiting services. He is listed as 6'3", 280 pounds, and could play defensive tackle or perhaps strongside end on the next level. He joins three of his Calloway High School teammates - guard Roderick Taylor, wide receiver Dayall Harris, and safety Ronald Walker - as a part of this Ole Miss Recruiting class. His addition brings this Rebels class as high as #12 on Rivals.com's team rankings. (http://www.redcuprebellion.com/2013/10/21/4862932/defensive-lineman-breeland-speaks-commits-to-the-ole-miss)

Alabama running back commitment Bo Scarbrough missed IMG Academy's 19-13 overtime win over Clearwater Central Catholic on Thursday with a knee injury, but no information is yet available as to the severity of the injury.

Scarbrough, who transferred from the Tuscaloosa area to Brandenton, Fla.-based IMG this year, is the Ascenders' leading rusher with 1,118 yards and 16 touchdowns. He played in IMG's 27-24 loss to Jacksonville-Trinity Christian last weekend, its first loss of the season, rushing for 85 yards and scoring on a 10-yard run and a 38-yard reception.

Scarbrough has missed time with injuries in each of the last four seasons. He broke his ankle in his freshman season at Northridge High in Tuscaloosa, tore his ACL as a sophomore and suffered a high-ankle sprain as a junior.

Alabama center commitment J.C. Hassenauer also missed this weekend's game with a knee injury. With Hassenauer and two other injured starters on the sideline, his Woodbury (Minn.) East Ridge team was upset 38-3 by Eastview in the second round of the playoffs. (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2013/11/alabama_recruiting_bo_scarbrou.html)

Alabama will host at least eight official visitors, including current Tide commit Viane Talamaivao. The Corona, California offensive lineman will make his first ever visit to Tuscaloosa this weekend after committing to the Tide earlier this year. Joining Talamaivao will be fellow Californians Tyler Luatua, a four-star tight end, four-star offensive tackle Damien Mama from Bellflower, four-star athlete Michiah Quick from Fresno, and five-star athlete John Smith from Long Beach.


Also taking official visits to Tuscaloosa will be Palm Beach, Florida wide receiver Johnnie Dixon and five-star defensive back Tony Brown from Beaumont, Texas. Louisiana native Laurence "Hootie" Jones, one of the nation's top safety prospects, will round out the official visitor group.



The Crimson Tide will welcome 18 of its currently committed 2014 prospects in all to campus, including five-star running back Bo Scarbrough, quarterback David Cornwell, and the nation's top overall prospect, offensive tackle Cameron Robinson from Monroe, Louisiana.



Among the Tide's top uncommitted targets expected to attend are Kentucky defensive tackle Matt Elam, Georgia linebacker Raekwon McMillan, Auburn High School linebacker Rashaan Evans and Hoover cornerback Marlon Humphrey.

Les Miles was talking about a recruiting prospect this week, and it was perfectly within NCAA rules. That's because four-star Bossier City (La.) Parkway quarterback Brandon Harris is technically no longer a prospect, but a signee.

Harris took advantage of a new NCAA rule interpretation to sign an Institutional Financial Aid Agreement with LSU on Thursday.

The new interpretation, issued in October, allows prospects like Harris who are on schedule to graduate in December and intend to enroll in January to sign with their school of choice as early as Aug. 1...

State landed commitments from two big-name class of 2015 prospects late Saturday night.

Four-star linebacker Timothy Washington from Yazoo City and four-star defensive tackle T.D. Moton from Shreveport, La. both verbally committed to Mississippi State. The pair was part of a huge recruiting weekend in Starkville this weekend for MSU’s primetime game against Alabama. The Bulldogs played well against top-ranked Alabama, but lost 20-7 at Davis Wade Stadium.

Landing a player like Moton out of Louisiana is a huge grab for Mississippi State. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound prospect chose the Bulldogs over scholarship offers from LSU, Notre Dame, Florida State and Georgia, among others. 247Sports’ Crystal Ball feature had him 100 percent to LSU. He’s a Top 100 caliber prospect.

Washington has been considered a Mississippi State lean... (http://blogs.clarionledger.com/recruiting/2013/11/16/mississippi-state-picks-up-two-four-star-2015-prospects)

Four-star guard Viane Talamaivao of Corona (Calif.) Centennial flipped his commitment from Alabama to USC.

While Lane Kiffin essentially gave up on Talamaivao after his commitment to Alabama, Ed Orgeron has upped the ante in pursuing him, pulling the Kevin Sumlin trick of landing at the lineman's school in a helicopter. A visit to watch USC's win over Stanford last weekend apparently sealed the decision.

MS Recruiting blog: Former Notre Dame signee Tee Shepard wants to play in the SEC http://on.thec-l.com/1c4aFya

The 6-foot-1, 197-pound cornerback grew up in California, but landed at Holmes Community College this year.  He initially enrolled at Notre Dame, but left in March after NCAA eligibility issues relating to online courses.

Shepard knew very little about Holmes before leaving for Mississippi, but quickly learned it competed in an ultra-competitive junior college conference. After playing against multiple Top 10 junior college teams, he said it was like “the baby SEC.”

Shepard has 22 scholarship offers and multiple SEC programs after him, but the two a cut above the rest are Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

What kind of an impact would an Egg Bowl win have on in state recruiting? I examined here: http://www.clarionledger.com/article/20131126/SPORTS05/311260026/Mississippi-State-Ole-Miss-tilt-could-impact-future-recruits …”

Quote
The short-term effects of the win are limited. Neither team is likely to flip a committed player from the other with a victory. But both schools stand to potentially gain long-term with an Egg Bowl win.

“In rivalry games, I’ve seen it plant seeds for younger players,” said JC Shurburtt, the national recruiting director for 247Sports. “It could give you an early edge because the kid goes, ‘I like the way they played the game.’ When kids are seniors it comes down to more about relationships, but for younger kids it could make a difference.”

With a win Thanksgiving night, Mississippi State gains bowl eligibility and limits the effectiveness of other schools’ negative recruiting efforts. Dan Mullen can tell recruits Mississippi State is going to bowl games in four out of his five years at the helm. A win also quiets the critics that say Mullen’s tenure in Starkville should be over soon.

For Ole Miss, it shows steady improvement from last year’s 6-6 regular season record and likely locks in a quality bowl game. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze can tell recruits that the Rebels are only a year or two away from competing for an SEC championship. The Rebels could continue to build on their recruiting momentum.

However, the game won’t dramatically alter the recruiting landscape in Mississippi. Those that follow recruiting know that neither school could ever dominate in-state recruiting. There are too many geographical ties and long-standing relationships for either university to get totally shut out.

But there are ebbs and flows that might give one an advantage over the other.

Last season Ole Miss hit home runs with out-of-state recruits while State took some top in-state recruits.

Quote
For Mississippi State, Shurburtt really likes West Point running back Aeris Williams, who is ranked No. 3 in The Clarion-Ledger’s Targeted 22.

“For Mississippi State my vision has always been a big downhill running back and a punishing run game,” Shurburtt said. “(Aeris) is a big, powerful back like that with good feet and a wealth of offers. That’s a key guy.

“I also love the way Mississippi State recruits versatility guys like Jamoral Graham, who can help out on either side.”

Callaway offensive lineman Rod Taylor is one of the top offensive guards in the country and a freak athlete, according to Shurburtt.

“He could come in and play left tackle if he wanted to,” he said. “As Freeze continues to solidify the offensive line, that’s a heck of a haul to go along with the guys they got last year.”

The Ole Miss commit is the top-ranked player in Mississippi, according to 247Composite.

Says Ole Miss has a slight edge overall.

11 Bama commits are scheduled to play in the Under Armor All-America Game on Thursday.

Four other players considering the Tide are scheduled to announce their college decision at some point during the game:

RB Leonard Fournette
The nation's top-rated running back according to the major recruiting services... Some think he will go with LSU.

CB Tony Brown
One of the nation's top cornerback prospects...  LSU has been mentioned as the leader with USC, Ohio St., and A&M getting "ball caps on a table".

CB Jalen Tabor
Bama has made a strong late push with this Washington D.C. area star...
Arizona and Bama are presumed to be the finalists. Tide fans encouraged that Tabor has talked to the Hand, Bama verbal Da'Shawn Hand from Virginia.

WR Travis Rudolph
With Alabama's 2014 recruiting class light on receivers, the Crimson Tide have put the full court press on Rudolph, a Palm Beach Gardens, Florida native...
Auburn and Florida State are reported to be in the mix.

John Clay: Jamal Adams, son of former UK star George Adams, and godson of former UK head coach Joker Phillips, picked LSU over Florida, where Phillips is an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator. Out of Lewisville, Texas, Adams is ranked as the No. 3 safety prospect in the nation and made is announcement today at the Under Armour Bowl.

The Gators did turn around and get four-star defensive lineman Gerald Willis III out of New Orleans, though his mom said that “LSU is still No. 1.” (http://johnclay.bloginky.com/2014/01/02/random-notes-thinks-recruiting-sure-is-fun)

Jamal Adams, #23 in the #ESPN300, committed to the @LSUfball over #Florida at the @AllAmericaGame http://es.pn/1hjUanD  #UAALLAMERICA
5:50 PM - 2 Jan 2014

The news even stunned Les Miles.

About two weeks ago, George Adams dialed the LSU coach to tell him this: Adams’ son, Jamal, would be committing to the Tigers over Florida, where Jamal’s godfather, Joker Phillips, is recruiting coordinator.

“Les Miles was so shocked and surprised I was coming,” Jamal Adams said.

Adams made his commitment public Thursday during the second quarter of the Under Armour All-America Game at Tropicana Field.

Adams, a five-star safety from Hebron High in Carrollton, Texas, was one of seven players who committed on national television... (http://theadvocate.com/home/7997408-125/lsu-finds-more-safety-help)

FAIRFIELD, Alabama -- Restoration Academy will likely always remember Deion Calhoun. Not just for his fun-loving smile and outgoing personality.

When Calhoun signs with Mississippi State on National Signing Day next month, he'll become the first player from that program to even (sic) sign with an FBS school. The 6-foot-2, 310-pounder was offered by the Bulldogs on December 20th last month.

Calhoun, known as "Shaq" at his school, made a verbal commitment shortly thereafter on Christmas Day.

http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2014/01/deion_calhouns_commitment_to_m.html

His given name is Deion but he goes by Shaq.  Has a 3.4 GPA and had offers from Western and UAB as well. Their coaches are now at UofL.

5-star cornerback Marlon Humphrey commits to Alabama http://ow.ly/t4SRf

Tide’s recruiting class includes two 5-star cornerbacks who just so happen to be the nation’s top two prep track and field hurdle recruits. (http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/01/29/alabama-db-recruits-also-the-nations-top-two-prep-hurdlers)

Quote
Tony Brown, a 6-foot, 182-pounder from Beaumont, Texas, is already enrolled in school at Alabama and, despite some off-field trouble, is likely to contribute early for the Tide. He was ranked the 25th-best player in the country overall by Rivals.com and the No. 4 cornerback. On the track, however, Brown is as good as they come. His time of 13.38 in the 110-meter high hurdles run during his junior season was tied for the fastest mark in the country in that event. How fast is that? Well, 2012 Olympic gold medalist and current 110-meter high hurdle world record holder Aries Merritt had a best time of 13.92 in high school...

Marlon Humphrey on Wednesday morning, too. If there’s any football player/track athlete more talented than Brown in this class, it might be Humphrey.

Marlon Humphrey, the 6-foot, 175-pounder from Hoover, Ala., is ranked the No. 9 player overall by Rivals.com and the No. 2 cornerback. He also tied Brown for the top 110-meter hurdles time in the country last track season, at the aforementioned 13.38 time. But Humphrey was also the nation’s best at both the 300 and 400-meter intermediate hurdles as well. His top 300-meter hurdle time of 35.60 is close to challenging the prep record set by NCAA champion Reggie Wyatt and his 50.25 time in the 400 hurdles is also outstanding. While Brown will be taking in spring ball for the Tide, Humphrey will have another go at breaking that mark when track season rolls around.

Marlon's father, of course, played at Bama, his brother at Arkansas.

#LSU is trying to close out its recruiting class with several heavy hitters. http://theadvocate.com/sports/lsurecruiting/8245959-123/lsu-targeting-eight-prospects-to …

Five days before National Signing Day, LSU is targeting eight prospects for their signatures.

This is the home stretch of, in some cases, what has been a three-year process of relationship building and constant courting of the state’s most talented players (John Curtis stars Malachi Dupre and Kenny Young).

In other cases, LSU has swooped in at the 11th hour with hopes of snatching a prospect from another school or plucking a player from a distant state (TCU receiver commit Emanuel Porter and California cornerback Adoree’ Jackson).

Young, Dupre, Porter and Jackson join a pair of Florida natives, offensive tackle Derrick Kelly and defensive tackle Travonte Valentine, and Georgia defensive end Lorenzo Carter and Texas defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao as LSU’s closing targets.

LSU has 19 commitments for the 2014 class, leaving six spots open. The Tigers are limited to signing 25 on National Signing Day on Wednesday [Shea Dixon believes that LSU will not sign the full 25], when players make their commitments binding.

LSU isn’t likely to grab commitments from all of the eight. Four of those targets are leaning toward signing with LSU, said William Weathers, a recruiting reporter at TigerBait.com, a Rivals.com affiliate.

They include Dupre, Valentine, Kelly and Lealaimatafao.

Frank Ragnow is heading to Arkansas.

The 6-6, 290-pound offensive lineman, who had narrowed his choices to Minnesota and Arkansas, announced his decision Friday at Chanhassen High School.

Ragnow was considered one of the main priorities in this recruiting class for the Gophers, who worked tirelessly to convince him to stay home after first offering him a scholarship before his junior year. He also had offers from Wisconsin, Nebraska, Ohio State, Missouri and Vanderbilt and took an official visit to Florida State.

In the end, Ragnow decided to leave Big Ten country and head to the SEC.

At Arkansas, he’ll be playing for former Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema, who allows his offensive linemen to fly first class on team flights, with the rest of the players in coach.

Central-Tuscaloosa offensive lineman Lester Cotton knew last summer he wanted to go to Alabama, but he held off on his commitment. His coach at Central, Dennis Conner, said they agreed to delay a decision to avoid affecting the rest of the team during the 2013 season.

Now, with the season over and the four-star 2015 prospect on campus for Alabama's junior day on Saturday, Cotton said the time was right to commit.

"I felt like it was the perfect time," said Cotton, who committed to the Crimson Tide on Saturday. "Everything was right, my mind was right -- just go ahead and be done with it."

Cotton (6-3, 309) said Saturday that Mississippi State, Ole Miss and LSU have been to visit him recently, and he may still take a trip to MSU, but his mind was set on Alabama. (http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2014/02/new_alabama_commitment_lester.html)

Bama and Auburn have engaged in some heated recruiting battles throughout the years, but the battle for five-star Rashaan Evans has taken the two coaching staffs to a unusual recruiting battleground: the dance floor.

According to Evans' father, Alan Evans, coaches from both Alabama and Auburn attended the five-star athlete's grandfather's 80th birthday party on Saturday night at a hotel in Auburn along with nearly 200 other friends and family members.

"When we got to the party about eight o'clock it was a packed house at the hotel," Evans told AL.com. "We walked in and the first people we saw was the entire Auburn staff standing there on our left and to my right was Kirby Smart and the Bama staff. I was like 'This has never happened in Auburn before and probably never will again.'

"As we went in, we were pulled left and right all night from Auburn to Bama. The coaches shook hands and talked but you could tell they were there for one thing and one thing only. Then the live band started playing and the Alabama and Auburn coaches hit the dance floor. It was unbelievable. I just couldn't stop laughing."

As the coaches battled for the attention of the family, Evans said family members and friends at the party began to jokingly cheer for either Alabama or Auburn.  (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2014/02/alabama_auburn_coaches_take_to.html)

Quote
"Gus was obviously attracting a lot of attention as well and had a line of people waiting to take pictures with him all night."

Reuben Foster, the former Auburn high player who got an Auburn tattoo and signed with Bama was there as well.

Recruits are making them dance and sing in their last days having "hand". Is there a better way to capitalize than making these coaches dance to amusement of your family and friends?

Who has pull? Mississippi State's Tony Hughes is the best at recruiting in-state

Dan Mullen won’t walk into the home of a Mississippi prospect without Tony Hughes.

Hughes, a native Mississippian, has served as the point man for Mullen, a Northerner, in building relationships in the state. The Mississippi State recruiting coordinator has well-established connections throughout the state and frequently plays a major role when the school signs a highly regarded in-state player.

“If you were Notre Dame and wanted to recruit Mississippi, you would go after Tony Hughes,” one national recruiting expert said. “He’s synonymous with Mississippi recruiting.”

If only by a hair, Hughes ranks as our top college coach at recruiting in-state players.

Hughes, Ole Miss running backs coach Derrick Nix and Ole Miss offensive line coach Matt Luke were the three most popular choices on who recruits Mississippi best.

What also separates Hughes from others, according to experts, is his evaluation skills. He was among the first believers in Jamie Collins, the Southern Miss product who just finished a promising season with the New England Patriots. He “knew there was something special” about Jameon Lewis, who at the time was a 5-foot-9 quarterback for Tylertown High School.

“I’ve always felt I can see raw talent and I can take a kid, develop his skills and help him be a top-line player,” Hughes said. “Sometimes I see things that other people don’t. I’ve just been blessed.”

As Hughes is to Mississippi State, Nix is to Ole Miss.

High school coaches in the Jackson area raved about Nix to The Clarion-Ledger, highlighting his ability to relate to kids. Nix’s two biggest gets, however, were beating Alabama for Conner last year and flipping C.J. Johnson from Mississippi State in 2011.

Said one recruiting expert: “He can put a chew in his mouth, go out in the country and get a kid. He can dress up and get preppy kids. ... He’s the most versatile recruiter.”

“One of the biggest things that’s helped me is just being myself and being down to earth,” Nix said. “I’m a country kid from Alabama. I’ve been in a lot of situations as ... recruits. I came from the same kind of neighborhoods.”

“In the simplest way, it is a war,” Nix said. “Basically, we are all going after the same kids.”

Just a couple of days ahead of National Signing Day, Tee Shepard confirmed to Rivals.com that he has committed to continuing his FBS playing career at Mississippi State.  Shepard had played at Holmes Community College in 2013...

The Irish announced back in March of 2012 that Shepard was no longer enrolled at the school, two months after he enrolled as an early signee as part of Notre Dame’s 2012 recruiting class.  The stated reason for Shepard’s decision at the time was the desire to be back closer to his family in Fresno.

Shepard, a four- or five-star player depending on the recruiting service, was rated as the No. 4 corner in the country in the Class of 2012 and the No. 11 player at any position in the state of California...

Success in Georgia may be key in 2015 for Alabama, Auburn recruiting (Mike Herndon) (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2014/02/success_in_georgia_may_be_key.html)

Quote
For 2015, it appears to be a loaded year in Georgia, where five prospects in the Peach State are rated as five-star prospects according to the 247Sports Composite and another 26 carry four-star rankings.

Both the Crimson Tide and Tigers already boast 2015 commitments from Georgia, with four-star quarterback Tyler Queen committed to Auburn while Alabama has three pledges from east of the border - five-star linebacker Mekhi Brown, four-star defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter and four-star offensive guard Dallas Warmack.

Another five-star Georgia prospect, Atlanta-Mays defensive end Natrez Patrick, could be in the picture for both the Tide and Tigers. A teammate of Warmack, he counts both among his favorites.

As with many of Georgia's top prospects, however, outsiders will have to fight off the home-state Bulldogs for Patrick. Mark Richt and his staff have placed a greater emphasis on keeping Georgia prospects in Georgia in recent years, and Bulldog running backs coach Bryan McLendon was named the 2014 recruiter of the year by 247Sports.

McLendon was recently named UGa recruiting coordinator.

Junior Day weekend, an awkward one, as Byron De’Vinner returns to Mississippi State | MSU football http://blogs.clarionledger.com/msu/2014/02/26/junior-day-weekend-an-awkward-one-as-byron-devinner-returns-to-campus-on-sunday/ …

The man, who is one of the reasons Mississippi State is on probation, was in Starkville last weekend. Byron De’Vinner posted pictures from his Twitter account regarding the visit to campus.

De’Vinner coached current-MSU cornerback Will Redmond. De’Vinner told multiple media outlets he witness impermissible benefits given to Redmond by a booster.

The visit obviously seems awkward, but MSU stressed De’Vinner has not been banned from the university.

“We have recently had hundreds of kids come here on unofficial visits. This time of year you have a lot of kids. And these kids come with their parents, friends, coaches, there’s whole bunch of people,” MSU compliance director Bracky Brett said. “Unless we we’re dealing with someone who has been dissociated from the university I don’t think we’re going to tell a recruit who brings them down on visit.”

De’Vinner declined to comment on the visit. He did say the trip was to bring his nephew, Maurice Smitherman. Smitherman is three-star defensive back according to 247Sports.

Kerryon, my wayward son...

After whiffing on Kerryon Johnson, who should be Bama's next priority?

The Auburn Tigers landed a commitment from one of the state's top prospects yesterday in Madison Academy athlete Kerryon Johnson.

One running back, Vigor's Desherrius Flowers, is already committed to the Tide's 2015 class, but Alabama had been recruiting the 6-foot, 200-pound Johnson for quite some time at both running back and defensive back.

With his solid commitment to the Tigers, who should be Alabama's top priority be now?

Jovon Robinson, RB (Georgia Military College, Valdosta, Ga.)
After failing to qualify academically at Auburn in 2012...

Damien Harris, RB (Madision Southern, Berea, Ky.)
Harris, ranked as the nation's top high school running back in the 247Sports Composite...

Miles did not mention Kiel by name but said, “There was a gentleman from Indiana that thought about coming to the Bayou state [who] did not necessarily have the chest and the ability to lead a program.”

In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Kiel told SI’s Martin Rickman, “That’s just me being dumb again. When I called him and told him I wasn’t coming, I knew he was going to be angry. I know coach Miles. I have nothing but respect for him. I can’t get mad about that.

The day Breeland Speaks waited months for finally arrived. Hours after his graduation on Wednesday, Speaks and fellow Ole Miss signee Dayall Harris headed to Oxford to begin their college careers.

And to think, none of this would have happened had Speaks flipped his commitment to LSU following an official visit before National Signing Day.

"I was pretty close to going to LSU," Speaks said. "Very close, very, very close. But, one thing led to another, one phone call was missed and now I'm an Ole Miss Rebel."

Speaks has never been shy about LSU being his dream school, though an offer from the Tigers didn't come until January, nearly three months after he had committed to the Rebels...

"One phone call," Speaks reiterated. "That's all it takes."

Nick Saban is known for using unique recruiting techniques and this week was no different. Georgia's top-ranked commitment, 5-star WR Terry Godwin, is fresh off a 3 day visit to Bama for the Tide's camp. Godwin tells BamaOnline that Saban allowed him to blow the air horn, which cues campers to change stations.

"During the workouts, I'd walk around with Coach Saban. Me and him would have a conversation and he'd let me blow the horn for the rotations of the camp. They were saying they've never seen anyone blow the horn besides him and me. I was the first person besides him to blow the horn," Godwin said.

"It was great. It made me feel special."  (http://247sports.com/Bolt/Nick-Saban-uses-unique-recruiting-tactic-on-top-Georgia-commit-28971567)

Five days ago, Murrah star Malik Dear said he was planning to wait until his senior season began to announce his college decision.

Late this week he changed his mind after finding out he is eligible to graduate early. After nearly committing during a visit to MSU's campus on Friday, Dear announced his commitment to Mississippi State on Saturday night.

"I called Coach Mullen (around 9 p.m.) and asked him how he was doing," Dear said. "He just came out and asked me if I was ready to be a Bulldog and I said I was."

Dear, a four-star athlete according to 247Sports, is the Bulldogs' 16th commitment in the class of 2015 and the fifth prospect to commit to MSU since Thursday.

The 5-foot-9 prospect is the No. 5 the updated Clarion-Ledger Targeted 22 (sic) and holds other scholarship offers from Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Alabama, among others. During his junior season, Dear rushed for 1,893 yards and 21 touchdowns. (http://www.clarionledger.com/story/recruitingreport/2014/06/07/malik-dear-mississippi-state)

Cedar Hill (Texas) rising senior Justin McMillan was offered a verbal scholarship by Cameron. Before leaving campus, McMillan accepted the offer and joined the Tigers' 2015 class.

McMillan, a 6-foot-2 and 170-pound southpaw, worked alongside Cameron throughout the day on Tuesday. The three-star prospect is LSU's 12th commitment in the 2015 class. The news comes after a spring that saw the Tigers lose quarterbacks Stephen Rivers and Hayden Rettig as transfers. (http://247sports.com/Bolt/BREAKING-LSU-grabs-2015-QB-29090056)

It’s #WRTS, the hashtag that’s been popping up all over A&M social media on recruiting topics.

Supposedly, it stands for “We Run This State.” The abbreviation can be found on A&M football’s official Twitter feed and blasted out by Aggie coaches and recruits. It would appear to epitomize A&M’s heightened attitude as a program, with the school now in its third year in the SEC and under Sumlin, a brazen brag to both SEC rivals and in-state programs. The coach has been actively using the “YESSIR!” of late that he tweets when A&M gets commitments from recruits. A&M’s 2015 recruiting class is ranked No. 4 nationally at this point by Rivals.com. So, #WRTS?

“I’ve never tweeted that,” Sumlin said of his personal account, @CoachSumlin. “No take on that.”

Uh huh.

But he’ll tell you this about A&M’s recruiting momentum:

“We’re just in a different time right now,” he said. “There are a lot of young players who understand where we’re headed, and because of that they’ve been able to come to our campus and see what’s going on from a construction standpoint, and a lot of standpoints.” (http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/college-sports/texas-aggies/20140618-new-gadget-for-texas-am-recruiting-what-wrts-supposedly-means....ece)

Alabama's flight records reveal controlled chaos behind securing the nation's No. 1 recruiting class http://ow.ly/yZWxM

Quote
AL.com, through the Freedom of Information Act, obtained the logs of the 24-year-old plane (N1UA) registered to the Crimson Tide Foundation — the fundraising arm of the Alabama athletics department — that carried Saban and his staff to their destinations. (The plane's movements cannot be accessed otherwise because the school had the tail number blocked from flight-tracking websites.)

The aircraft – an 1125 Westwind Astra built by Israel Aircraft Industries in 1990 – made 66 trips marked "football recruiting" on the logs. Saban was on board for 53. The plane touched down in 15 states from coast to coast. It logged nearly 53 hours of flight time leading up to National Signing Day on Feb. 5.

N1UA made trips as short as 10 minutes (between Gadsden and Talladega) and as long as four-plus hours (from Tuscaloosa to Long Beach, Calif.).

It is summer.

They include time-lag visualizations of the flight logs and a full database search at the link above.

With fewer scholarships available, Ole Miss takes cautious approach this year in recruiting http://on.thec-l.com/1mR555z

Quote
Ole Miss is believed to have 15 scholarship seniors in 2014, and therefore may only be able to sign 15 players in the class of 2015 without attrition from its younger classes. The Rebels currently have 10 commitments, but the latest (Gulfport’s Jordus Smith) is an expected sign-and-place to a junior college.

How did this happen? Keep in mind that Ole Miss does not release a list of players on scholarship, claiming Family Educational Rights and Privacy Actlaws. But through a combination of its National Signing Day classes each year and its own media guide (which often specifies players who joined the team as walk-ons), we can get an understanding.

"Some of the factors are them being close to home," McMillon said on the ESPN broadcast. "I'm able to get there any time if there's any family emergency. The Engineering program is one of the top 50 in the country. Alabama, the name sticks out. They're taking linebackers to the NFL every day. People like Dont'a Hightower, Rolando McClain and C.J. Mosley, who just went to the Ravens. I felt like it was a great fit for me."

McMillon said receivers coach Billy Napier, who recruited McMillon, played a big role in his decision.

Alabama's recruiting class is still ranked No. 1 in all major recruiting services. McMillon participated at NIKE's The Opening in July with 10 other Alabama commitments.

Boasting offers from Louisville, Miami, Tennessee, Nebraska, and several others, Givens committed to the Rebels after whittling his choices down to Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. He is listed by 247Sports as a three star prospect who is the No. 45 high school offensive tackle prospect and the No. 18 overall prospect in Tennessee for the 2015 class.

Calvin Ridley finishes high school career with another monster game (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2014/09/tracking_alabamas_commits_calv_1.html)

Quote
The 5-star Alabama commit from Monarch High School in Coconut Creek, Fla., scored two touchdowns and finished with seven receptions for 186 yards in Monarch's 48-0 win over Piper on Friday.

His last catch, according to the Sun-Sentinel, was a 40-yard touchdown.

He topped 100 yards receiving in all three games he played this season.

Ridley turns 19 years and 9 months after the game, so he is too old to continue playing under Florida High School Athletic Association rules.

Decision date: January

Recruiting skinny: Payne continues to maintain a Top 3 of Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State. He has already made trips to Alabama and Auburn this season and will likely accompany teammate Keith Mixon on a trip to Starkville. Payne has said he has the closest relationship with Alabama offensive line coach Mario Cristobal and that Alabama is currently recruiting him the hardest...

Good stuff here. #LSU 58% from La. RT @JonSolomonCBS: 52% of Ole Miss/Miss St players are from Miss. http://cbsprt.co/1E4s1uk

Quote
Fifty-two percent of the Ole Miss and Mississippi State players are from Mississippi. Take away those 119 players and there are only 13 other players from Mississippi in the SEC -- fewer than non-SEC states Illinois, Ohio, Maryland and North Carolina.

"Really? I'm shocked at that," Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said of leading the SEC in jucos. "I don't consider us a big juco team. ... We're blessed to have the Mississippi jucos here. It would be foolish for us for a national player that got in there that didn't qualify for us not to work hard to get them.”

Ten of the Rebels' 14 jucos played at junior colleges in Mississippi, which is a huge source for sending two-year players to four-year schools. Seven junior colleges in Mississippi make up 33 percent of the SEC's juco players. The next closest state for SEC jucos is Kansas (23 percent).

Half or the SEC players come from either the state of Georgia, Florida, Texas, or Alabama.

The 6-4, 215-pound prospect chose the Fighting Irish over offers from Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Texas, UCLA, Minnesota, Nebraska and many others. Wallace has the ability to play with his hand in the dirt as an edge rusher, but also possesses the athleticism to stand up and play effectively in space.

Very seldom do you see a John Curtis prospect commitment at this stage of the process, but perhaps even more rare is seeing one decommit once he has given his word.

4-star P.J. Blue on meeting Nick Saban: 'It was almost like talking to God' http://ow.ly/EtutV

Quote
"It was almost like talking to God," Blue said.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound junior athlete from Jemison High School said as a kid he never envisioned he'd get a chance to meet people like Nick Saban. Spending time with the Alabama coach was intimidating at first, but Blue, who grew up an Alabama fan, couldn't stop smiling afterwards.

Alabama is one of multiple SEC programs recruiting the four-star prospect...

Blue already has scholarship offers from Clemson and UAB. He believes his first SEC offer -- from South Carolina -- is just a matter of time. South Carolina has told Blue it plans to offer him, but wants to wait until an assistant coach can visit Blue at his school.

LSU and Auburn have also expressed interest in Blue, who plays both receiver and outside linebacker in high school. Auburn likes him in its "Star" position -- the hybrid spot of safety and linebacker...

Any word on CeCe Jefferson's status?

Riley Blevins:
Muschamp's firing certainly helps Ole Miss out. He hasn't ordered a list of favorites or anything like that, but you'd have to think Ole Miss is up there. Florida makes it interesting. They've been thought to be the favorite for a while now. If the Gators can get a coach in by early December, they may still have a chance. Jefferson's decision will be a tight race until National signing day.

At Under Armour, seven recruits are set to announce their college decisions, but only one is an LSU target at this stage in the game. However, it's a big one. Five-star wide receiver Tyron Johnson, ranked as the No. 1 overall prospect in Louisiana, will announce between LSU, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech. The Tigers hold more than 75-percent of the 35 predictions made on the 247Sports Crystal Ball, but LSU fans will approach with caution... (http://lsu.247sports.com/Bolt/Different-taste-to-Decision-Day-34143009)

Quote
At the Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, there's a potential for 10 recruits to make their announcement on live television, including five-star and No. 1 offensive tackle Martez Ivey. While Ivey's most recent official visit went to LSU, it appears that Auburn and Florida are the frontrunners with his process now winding down. The same goes for Florida's Devonaire Clarington, who once was in the conversation with LSU fans but is now taking a hard look at Miami and Texas as decision day draws near.

That leaves one name to really watch: four-star defensive end Kyle Phillips.

Phillips made multiple visits to Baton Rouge this fall, including an official visit with his family. LSU repaid the favor by checking in on him every week during the contact period, including an in-home visit with Les Miles and defensive coordinator John Chavis just before the dead period set in. For a long time, Ole Miss and Tennessee were considered the teams to beat, but did the Tigers manage to pull ahead in the 11th hour?

Damien Harris ready to end recruiting stress

About a month ago, Madison Southern running back Damien Harris admitted he did have a “fairly good idea” about where he wanted to go to college.

On Friday at 1:15 p.m., the state’s top-ranked player will officially tell everyone whether that choice will be Kentucky, Alabama or Ohio State during a ceremony at his high school.  (http://www.centralkynews.com/amnews/sports/college/uk/football/damien-harris-ready-to-end-recruiting-stress/article_3aa97e56-2f69-5d12-bb58-6e3c05c57b74.html)

Quote

Harris ran for a game-high 110 yards on 16 carries — and a 36-yard touchdown — during the Under Armour All-American Game in Tampa.

The nation’s No. 1 running back and No. 11 overall senior, according to Rivals.com, ran 99 times for 1,474 yards (14.9 per-carry average) and 23 touchdowns in only seven games as a senior (he missed four games with a knee injury.) He is Kentucky’s second all-time leading scorer with 738 career points and also second in career touchdowns (122) and career rushing touchdowns (113). He ran for 2,621 rushing yards as a junior, and during his career scored 42 points in a game three times. For his career, Harris averaged 12.48 yards per carry and a TD every 4.7 carries.

Good read from @Riley_Blevins on Ole Miss' recruiting to-do list. http://www.clarionledger.com/story/sports/recruitingreport/2015/01/10/ole-miss-recruiting-list/21583423/ …

Quote
Rebels' 2015 class currently sits at No. 17 in the 247Sports rankings. But what happens in the weeks leading up to National Signing Day could have Ole Miss falling or climbing considerably.

Here's Ole Miss' recruiting to-do list.

1. Keep the commits

Two of Ole Miss' highest-ranked prospects are seriously considering other options.

Priority No. 1 is keeping them committed.

Dandy Dozen linebacker Leo Lewis has been committed to Ole Miss since September but has visits planned to Mississippi State and LSU. He openly admits his recruitment isn't over.

The nation's top inside linebacker not only has impact talent, but he also fills a major positional need for the Rebels.

The same goes for Drew Richmond.

The five-star offensive tackle is planning other visits, and those close to his recruitment believe Tennessee is still very much in the picture...

2. Get CeCe

CeCe Jefferson has been topic of message board chatter for weeks, if not months.

The five-star defensive end named the Rebels his leader not long ago. If Ole Miss hangs on and gets his signature on a National Letter of Intent, it would be a huge recruiting spark. But he's far from a done-deal. Florida is still in the picture...

3. Add WR, because why not?

Ole Miss doesn't necessarily need help at wide receiver.

But when the likes of DeMarkus Lodge and Van Jefferson are interested, you don't say no.

4. Fill needs

In a perfect world, Ole Miss would add another linebacker and offensive tackle to its 2015 class.

However, pickings are slim at this point.

Four-star offensive tackle Toby Weathersby from Texas will be a name to watch. He has official visits planned to Ole Miss, Arkansas and LSU this month...

The 6-foot-6, 225-pound [TE] prospect picked LSU over scholarship offers from Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Miami, Florida and many others. Pettigrew becomes the fifth commitment for the Tigers in the 2016 class, with four of those commitments coming from within Louisiana's borders.

3 ways the latest SEC coaching moves could shake up recruiting for Alabama, Auburn and LSU: http://ow.ly/Hktm8

Quote
1) LSU just upgraded its recruiting staff big-time

John "Chief" Chavis is a very talented defensive coordinator, but he's not much of a recruiter. Defensive line coach Brick Haley, who could soon join Chavis at Texas A&M, isn't bad, but he's clearly no Ed O. Steele is going to help LSU get more traction in states like Tennessee, Kentucky and the Carolinas...

2) Auburn has a fantastic recruiting staff

Auburn, along with LSU, probably wins the award for best recruiting staff upgrade this offseason. Auburn already added defensive coordinator Will Muschamp and defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson -- both clear upgrades over Ellis Johnson and Melvin Smith -- but Lance Thompson is the icing on the cake.

This is a guy who AJ McCarron called the "best recruiter ever" after he successfully convinced him to head to Tuscaloosa. A guy who successfully recruited players like Mark Barron, Julio Jones and Rashaan Evans during his three stints at Alabama. He's a terrific recruiter who is currently ranked the nation's fifth-best, according to 247Sports...

3) Alabama is going to reload

In a span of 24 hours, Alabama lost two of the nation's top recruiters. It is doubtful Nick Saban is too worried about it, even if each is going to an SEC West rival.

Throughout his tenure at Alabama, Saban has done a good job of replacing his assistants when they are inevitably poached by other programs. He clearly values recruiting prowess and it'd be wise to assume he's going to add two talented recruiters to his staff to replace Thompson and Steele. With the departure of his two linebackers coaches, he could even shift responsibilities around and add a defensive backs coach....

Alabama still has a very talented recruiting staff -- Mario Cristobal is rated the nation's top recruiter --

Defensive back Rico McGraw, one of the top players in the state of Tennessee, has withdrawn his verbal commitment to Bama. (http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2015/01/rico_mcgraw_decommits.html)

Quote
McGraw officially visited Alabama earlier this month, but will visit Georgia this weekend according to Barton Simmons of 247Sports. The AJC reports that McGraw has an in-home visit with UGA defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.

Alabama is deep with secondary recruits, but McGraw is a talented player. He competed in the Army All-American Game.

McGraw, a 4-star recruit, is the No. 144 recruit nationally on the 247Sports composite, the No. 20 safety and the No. 6 player in the state of Tennessee.

TOP QUARTERBACK TARGET

Shea Patterson (6-foot-2, 195 pounds | Shreveport, La.)

Alabama usually pulls in one of two top Louisiana prospects and of Alabama's QB targets, Patterson is the highest-rated at five stars (and that's why he's listed as the top quarterback target here) and No. 18 overall in the 247Sports composite. He was once committed to Arizona but decommitted after his brother was hired to the LSU staff. Reporters are coming out that Sean Patterson has resigned (debunked by his father three days ago) for a position at Ole Miss. Look for LSU, Ole Miss and Auburn to be among the top contenders along with Alabama. Patterson is close with top receiver Mykel Jones and Alabama is after both.

247 Crystal Ball  Ole Miss 54%  LSU 23% ...

RETURNING QUARTERBACKS (with 2016 class)

What precedent is Rivals setting making 6th grade profiles? I talked to @jcshurburtt @SBNRecruiting for insight: http://ow.ly/Jih6y

Quote
Daron Bryden becoming one of two sixth-graders added to Rivals.com's database this week was an accomplishment years in the making.

Whether that's good or bad depends on who you ask.

Bryden is a 5-foot-2, 105-pound "pro-style" quarterback from Enfield, Conn. In the widely circulated photo on his Rivals profile, he looks every bit like the kid he is.

Craig Bryden, Daron's father, has been generating media attention for his son for years.

Craig, who is deaf and never played football, is pleased with the results.

JC Shurburtt, a national recruiting analyst for 247Sports, understands why Rivals put up profiles of the two sixth-graders, but believes it could be dangerous for the players.

"It's a dangerous precedent to get data on a sixth grader out there because it might follow you around," Shurburtt said.

Spoke with Texas cornerback Jared Mayden @MaydenII about his Alabama visit and recruiting options - http://ow.ly/LxJYt

Quote
With the additions of Maurice Smith, Tony Brown and Kendall Sheffield, Alabama has gone into Texas and snagged a high-profile defensive back in each of the last three recruiting classes.

This year, one to watch is Sachse four-star recruit Jared Mayden.

Mayden made a trip to Tuscaloosa last Friday to watch practice with 2018 teammates Jalen Mayden (his brother, a quarterback) and receiver Drue Jackson and Jordan Whaley, a rising senior receiver from Wylie.

"Pretty much everything stood out," Mayden said. "It lent (credence) to what people say about Alabama. It was all that, weight room, facility, (they) practice hard, structured practice, pretty much everything people say about Alabama and what you think about it was pretty much it."

The 6-foot, 190-pound Mayden is rated as the No. 143 prospect nationally and the No. 13 prospect in the state of Texas in the 247Sports composite. He just earned his 40th offer last week when Miami called.

"(Alabama coaches) like my size and my speed, as big as I am," he said.

Mayden and his  group also went to Mississippi State after his Alabama visit.

"It was nice," Mayden said. "I didn't really expect it to be as big as it was. It was a pretty big campus. Even the stadium was pretty big. I didn't expect it to be that big."

3-star TE Brendan Scales is the newest Alabama commit: http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2015/04/tight_end_brendan_scales_commi.html …

Quote
Scales, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound recruit from Lafayette High School in Wildwood, Mo., was offered earlier this week. He told AL.com that he was making a trip to Tuscaloosa this weekend.

Scales is a three-star recruit on the 247Sports composite. He becomes Alabama's sixth verbal commitment for the 2016 class. Last year, Alabama signed tight end Hale Hentges from Missouri.

Scales had offers from the likes of Arizona State, Arkansas, Michigan State, Iowa and others.

St. Thomas Aquinas 2016 defensive tackle Edwin Alexander was a one-time LSU commitment but backed off of his commitment soon after. But Saturday at the LSU spring game, Alexander reaffirmed his commitment to the Tigers, according to two sources close to the DT.

The 6-foot-3, 310-pound Alexander was identified early in his career by LSU and fills a huge need by the Tigers.

Alexander is considered a five-star prospect by ESPN and 247 and a four-star according to Rivals. He's widely considered one of the top defensive tackles in the country.

Just this week, Alexander's St. Thomas Aquinas teammate, quarterback Cameron Dantzler, said that the DT "sets the tone" for the team.

"He sets the tone for us on defense. He helps everybody make a big play. ... He just helps everybody out on the defense side," Dantzler said.

Alabama recently visited an OT from a JUCO up northeast, here's an update - http://ow.ly/MhYTm

Quote
Alabama's search for offensive tackles has it going all over the country.

The Crimson Tide got a commitment from Jonah Williams, a four-star high school recruit in Folsom, Calif. One junior college target is from the northeast. Arlington, Texas standout Chris Owens has also committed, but he's likely a guard.

Alabama offered Charles Baldwin earlier this year, and he got a visit from Crimson Tide offensive line coach Mario Cristobal earlier this week.

Baldwin, a Windsor, Conn., product, had to go the junior college route out of high school because of grades, but he's scheduled to graduate from ASA College in Brooklyn, N.Y., and enroll at his school of choice in January.

Alabama is one of those, along with Ole Miss, Georgia and Oklahoma, he said.

"It was a good visit," Baldwin said. "I like Alabama and Coach Cristobal and I have a good relationship, so I was real comfortable. I think he's a good coach. He's talked about wanting to watch a practice."

The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Baldwin doesn't have a rating yet on the 247Sports composite, but also has offers from Arizona State, Kentucky, Miami, Connecticut and  Virginia Tech...

LSU lands a huge commitment from Destrehan DT Glen Logan.

The next few days following a recruiting weekend are always worth paying attention to because the chance for a commitment is considerable, as was the case on Wednesday when Destrehan defensive tackle Glen Logan announced on Twitter that he committed to LSU.

The 6-4, 300-pounder is the No. 7 rated prospect in the Times Picayune | NOLA.com Nifty 50 and holds offers from many of the nation's premier programs. Logan has been quiet during much of his recruitment, but it was apparent that he was one of the Tigers top targets in the class.

LSU now has two premier defensive tackles committed, St. Thomas Aquinas 5-star defensive tackle Ed Alexander being the other. The Tigers still have desires to add other in-state prospects Rashard Lawrence and Stephon Taylor, from Neville and McDonogh 35 respectively.

Logan is the 11th commitment for LSU in the class of 2016.

The Baldwin County star from Bay Minette, Ala. attended the LSU prospect camp, and did so under the watchful eye of LSU head coach Les Miles and offensive line coach Jeff Grimes.

NRG Stadium, AT&T Stadium, Kyle Field ... As Sumlin recounts, those venues are super for recruiting: http://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/aggies/article/A-M-s-Sumlin-optimistic-as-2015-season-nears-6320155.php …

Quote
NRG Stadium likely will be stuffed with Aggies on Sept. 5, but Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin on Wednesday vowed he'll do his part to ensure that's so.

"If I go out and tell all of our Aggies the roof is going to be closed and it's going to be 68-70 degrees, I can probably fill the place up," Sumlin told a gathering of the Touchdown Club of Houston. "Let's get that done."

"NRG is a stadium that's held a Super Bowl, meaning it's a world-class facility," he said. "Then we're going to play in Kyle Field, which will be the best facility in college football."

Sumlin said in addition to A&M's playing Arkansas annually in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, home of the Cowboys, "Our guys are getting the best venues to play football in, along with playing in the SEC West. It doesn't get any bigger than that, and that's had a big impact on our recruiting."

On Wednesday, Karr 2016 defensive end Andre Anthony announced his top six college choices. Alabama and LSU were No. 1 and 2, respectively.

One day later and Anthony decided LSU was the place for him.

LSU extended the offer to the defensive end toward the end of May.

Anthony is ranked as a four-star prospect by ESPN and is considered the No. 276 player overall. Rivals and 247Sports both have Anthony ranked as a three-star prospect.

The need for linebackers at LSU was just addressed on our site shortly ago, only for the Tigers to take a huge step in filling that need with a commitment from Texas 4-star linebacker Erick Fowler, one of the prospects high on its recruiting board.

Fowler took a trip to LSU last month, and left giving rave reviews of his visit. The 6-1, 235-pounder was being courted heavily by Texas, Texas A&M, Alabama, TCU and many others, but the Tigers ability to sell him on early playing time and helping make the transition to a multiple front defense was too much for the pass-rushing specialist to resist. Fowler becomes commitment no. 15 for the Tigers, and the first true linebacker in the class.

Monroe made the announcement on his Twitter.

How LSU built the nation's No. 1 Football Recruiting Class by @ScottFerrell:

http://bit.ly/1f6bQok

Quote
When LSU head football coach Les Miles announced Kevin Steele and Ed Orgeron as new assistants to his staff last winter, the moves were met with rave reviews from the media.

Some suggested Miles had even put together a recruiting dream team together.

Six months later, LSU is ranked as the nation's top college football recruiting class by 247sports.

"There's no question that both (Steele and Orgeron) are big additions in terms of recruiting,'' 247sports national recruiting analyst J.C. Shurburtt said. "Orgeron is the best recruiter in the country, the best defensive line coach in the country and based on what he did as the interim head coach at USC, I guarantee you the next head coaching gig he lands he will be successful. Steele has a longstanding reputation for excellence as well dating back to his days at Florida State under Bobby Bowden.''

Brothers Xavian Marks and Torin Marks will join the Alabama football program, their father Clyde told AL.com on Tuesday. (http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2015/07/xavian_marks_torin_marks.html)

Quote
Clyde Marks said that Xavian, a 5-foot-8, 155-pound running back from Rosenberg, Texas, will be on football scholarship and will have a chance to run track. Torin, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound defensive back and wide receiver, will be a walk-on.

Both graduated this year from George Ranch High School and both were three-star recruits. Torin is a year older as Xavian had a late birthday for his class.

"He's coming on a scholarship and as of right now, it's football, but I'm sure he probably will run track," Clyde said of Xavian. "He's a 10.3 (second) 100 (meter dash) kid. If they give him the opportunity to run, he probably will run track also."

Both players were committed to New Mexico State in January, but did not sign. Xavian signed with Alabama on Tuesday, Clyde Marks said...

Alabama 'getting an all-around back' in new commit B.J. Emmons (@Liltrillphenom), coach says http://ow.ly/PWRw7

Quote
Morganton, N.C., running back B.J. Emmons gave Alabama its first running back commitment of the 2016 class when he made his pledge public on Monday.

Emmons actually committed last week on a visit, but kept it quiet for a few days. Emmons, a one-time Georgia commit, chose Alabama over Tennessee and others in the end.

The 5-foot-10, 230-pound Emmons is a four-star recruit, ranked as the No. 110 overall player and No. 3 running back in the 247Sports composite rankings.

Brandon Allen: "B.J. is a tremendous running back and a tremendous athlete, a very powerful runner that has good, quality speed for his size. I certainly think that he's the type of tailback that Coach (Nick) Saban has always tried to fit in his system because they're a downhill running offense and very powerful, inside zone schemes, run a lot of gap schemes as well. I think B.J. will fit in well with that aspect and I tell people that B.J.'s hidden attributes are that he has tremendous hands and can run great routes and catch the ball out of the backfield. I think they're getting an all-around back."

http://www.clarionledger.com/story/recruitingreport/2015/07/22/ronald-walker-juco-swag/30542637/ …

Quote
The aura that enveloped Ronald Walker oozed confidence.

You would have thought the Copiah-Lincoln defensive back just recorded a record-breaking time in the 40-yard dash, but he had yet to go through testing at Mississippi State's Big Dawg Camp.

Walker strolled into the [Rafael] Palmeiro Center last Friday afternoon wearing a sleeveless gray hoodie, a gold chain, blacked out sunglasses and a backwards flat brim hat.

It's safe to say that the swagger he was known for at Callaway hasn't gone anywhere.

"Everybody (at Co-Lin) calls me 'Swag,'" Walker said. "It's real country down there. When they see me and see what I have on they get real excited and take pictures."

The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder is on his second go-around with the recruiting process. As a high school senior two years ago, Walker was one of four players from Callaway to commit to Ole Miss along with offensive guard Rod Taylor, defensive tackle Breeland Speaks and wide receiver Dayall Harris.

Unlike his teammates, Walker never made it to Oxford...

Today marks the first day of the evaluation period for the 2015-16 academic year. From Sept. 1 through Nov. 28, Division I coaches can contact 2016 prospects by phone one time per week. Prospective student-athletes from the class of 2017 can receive emails and direct messages via Twitter but no phone calls.

The contact period, where coaches can call prospects, is Dec. 1-13. The next dead period begins Dec. 14 and lasts until Jan. 13, 2016. Here's the full Division I recruiting calendar.

The story of how/why A'Shawn Robinson decommitted from Texas, landed at Alabama. http://bit.ly/1NdYQeH 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/COEA4-FU8AAUUwu.jpg)

Quote
The plan was to have a relatively stress-free senior season. A highly-rated recruit, Robinson committed to Texas and Mack Brown in February of 2012 as a junior. According to a July 2012 story from Rivals, Robinson was 100 percent committed to Texas and spoke weekly with Longhorns defensive line coach Bo Davis...

The fall after committing, she remembered a few Texas assistants were in town to see another recruit. They never visited their star commit.

"I felt like it hurt his feelings," Abigail said. "It hurt mine."

Abigail recalled Mack Brown comparing recruitment and commitment to marriage.

"I think he dropped the ball on the courtship," she said. "He felt like he had him and didn't court him."

According to 247Sports recruiting timeline, Tide defensive line coach Chris Rumph and Nick Saban visited in January, just days before National Signing Day.

News of his decommitment from Texas surfaced soon after and he signed with Alabama that February...

Brown was forced to resign after A'Shawn's first college season. Rumph, who helped bring A'Shawn to Alabama, left for the same job at Texas in 2014. He was replaced by Davis, the Longhorn coach who tried to keep A'Shawn with Texas. And Kiffin, who hosted A'Shawn on an official visit to USC, ended up as Alabama's offensive coordinator in 2014.

***

There was one major difference with the recruiting pitch Young heard from Alabama. He remembered Saban telling A'Shawn they had a lot of good players in the program and he'd be a part of it. The program wouldn't hinge on his commitment.

"Everybody else told him that you're going be the savior of our defense," Young said. "We're going to base our defense around you the next four years. You're going to be the guy."

A'Shawn went with Saban's plan.

Quote
Grenada's C.J. Avery is the top junior safety in Mississippi. Before ever playing a down of football this season, the four-star prospect had offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Alabama.

"Me personally, I think I'll probably end up going to an SEC school," Avery said. "The SEC is all about power and toughness and its one of the best in the country."

Avery recently picked up an offer from Stanford and is drawing interest from Florida, TCU and Clemson. While inundated with letters, direct messages and attention from these programs, the recruiting process has given the 6-foot-1, 196-pounder a new perspective.

"It gives me a lot of confidence," he said...

What a way to close the weekend for LSU.

John Ehret linebacker Michael Divinity, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound senior, announced his commitment to the Tigers late Sunday night.

Divinity is rated as the No. 48 overall prospect by ESPN, the No. 83 overall player by 247Sports and the No. 100 overall prospect by Rivals. He is a consensus four-star prospect and is also an Under Armour All-America Game selection.

3-star WR Daniel Crowell set for Nov. 29 commitment. He still has Ole Miss as his leader, but what about MSU & OSU? http://www.clarionledger.com/story/sports/recruitingreport/2015/10/19/crowell-set-nov-29-decision/74220232/ …

"I'm going to Ohio State on November 21st and then I'm going to go see Ole Miss play at State and take my decision from there," he said. "I've been to Ole Miss plenty of times. I know what I want from them, they told me what they want from me and I haven't been to Ohio State that many times."

In fact, the only time Crowell has been to Columbus was when he was offered by the Buckeyes during a camp in June. Ohio State will host Michigan State during Crowell's visit and while the Buckeye's No. 1 ranking has its appeal, the receiver said it will hold little weight in his decision.

"That is big but it's just going to be about how I feel when I get there," he said.

Mississippi State has also made up ground with Mississippi's No. 14 overall prospect over the last several months. Crowell had one of the top performances at Big Dawg Camp in July and remains a high priority for the Bulldogs in 2016.

"Mississippi State still chance," he said...

Quote
Morton wide receiver D.D. Bowie had been an Alabama pledge for nearly four months before the pressure of his commitment started to weigh on him.

"I think I committed too early," Bowie said.

That changed on Saturday. During a visit to Ole Miss for the Texas A&M game, the 6-foot-1, 197-pounder flipped his commitment from the Crimson Tide to the Rebels. Bowie had his mind made up for several weeks.

"I enjoyed my visit," he said. "When I got there I told my (high school) coach that I wanted to go to talk to Hugh Freeze. The good thing about it was that I got to see him and talk to him before he went out there for the game. I went in there and he said, 'What's the good news you had to tell me?' and I told him that I wanted to commit. He asked if I was serious about it and I said, 'Yes, sir.'"

Freeze smiled and gave Bowie a hug. The four-star prospect is the first commitment for the Rebels in 2017.

Ole Miss commit D'Vaughn Pennamon becomes latest running back to earn Alabama offer: http://ow.ly/TV1n9 (video highlights at the link)

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CSXhGhnUcAEWria.jpg)

Quote
Manvel, Texas standout D'Vaughn Pennamon got the call.

Pennamon, a three-star recruit listed at 5-foot-11 and 199 pounds, has been committed to Ole Miss since July.

Pennamon told ESPN at an Under Armour Jersey presentation for his teammates that he would officially visit Arkansas this weekend and set up officials for Alabama and Ole Miss.

Bama has a commitment from Morganton, N.C., running back B.J. Emmons, who is coming off a 21-carry, 307-yard performance last week.

it's clear that the Crimson Tide coaches hope to add at least one more in the next class. Options include the following:

* Springhill, La., four-star Devin White, who Alabama is battling the likes of LSU and Ole Miss for

* Ohio State commit Kareem Walker, the nation's top back who plans an Alabama official visit.

* Michigan State commit Abdul Adams, a three-star recruit from Durham, N.C.

* Leeds standout and four-year starter Tre Nation...

* Miles Sanders, a four-star Penn State commit from Pittsburgh, Pa.

Pennamon is also a track star, as many of Alabama's recruits in Texas seem to be.

.@bartonsimmons offers great insight into difficulty recruiting Louisiana and how Alabama's had success: http://ow.ly/UbK46

Quote
Alabama has signed at least one four-star from Louisiana in all but one of Saban's previous nine recruiting classes in Tuscaloosa. No other out-of-state school has had anywhere near that much success recruiting Louisiana, and it's at least one reason the Alabama-LSU rivalry has become supercharged in the last half-decade.

"LSU sort of dominates their state but every now and again there's a guy that's looking for some different opportunity someplace else and we've been able to take advantage of that in a couple situations," Saban said.

Alabama recruits better than any program on a national scale, but that means nothing in a state like Louisiana. It's imperative to have a coach who can walk into a John Curtis Christian or a St. Augustine and the coaches recognize him as one of their own.

Burton Burns is that guy.

The Alabama running backs coach is a Louisiana native who spent more than a decade coaching in the high school ranks in New Orleans and Baton Rouge before working at Tulane and Clemson. He's easygoing and well-liked everywhere he goes, but especially in Louisiana where Alabama uses him to combat LSU running backs coach Frank Wilson's stronghold in the state. He's been the primary recruiter for the majority of the top talent Alabama has signed out of Louisiana in the Saban era.

AM | #LSU currently has the No. 1-ranked recruiting class in the nation. Recent skidding not affecting things - http://bit.ly/1X5O4aM

Quote
LSU has finished with a top six recruiting class each of the past three years despite losing at least three games each season. The Tigers’ current 2016 class is ranked No. 1 in the nation.

“Most recruits see a loss and say, ‘If that was me out there, we would’ve won,’ ” said local radio host Derek Ponamsky. “They always see themselves as the difference.”

That’s how the coaches can turn a loss into a positive. LSU defensive line coach Ed Orgeron essentially shared that same message with four-star defensive lineman Emmit Gooden after Saturday’s game.

“He told me he wishes I was out there playing,” Gooden said, “getting in the backfield and making plays.”

Mother of nation’s No. 1 prospect on Nick Saban: “No comment” http://trib.al/rSNl74d

Quote
Coney, the mother of 5-star defensive lineman Rashan Gary from Paramus Catholic High School (N.J,), hasn’t really gotten to know Saban. She said that she has a “great relationship” with Alabama defensive line coach Bo Davis and offensive line coach Mario Cristobal.

“(I’ve talked to Nick Saban) maybe a couple times,” Coney said. “If he can squeeze in a minute.”

Alabama is for a “certain kind of kid,” according to Coney.

She said she’s been most impressed with Michigan’s academics, and even mentioned that coach Jim Harbaugh has been her favorite coach to interact with. Coney talks with him a good bit.

While she was impressed with Alabama’s academics, she used some interesting terms to detail her impression of the daily regime of a Crimson Tide football player.

“When I say strict, they are very strict,” Coney said. “To me it’s ‘Boot Camp-ish-like strict.’ I’m just saying what I took from it.”

Her son has already taken an official visit to Michigan and Ole Miss, and will attend his third official visit this weekend to Auburn for the Iron Bowl. Gary has an official visit set up to Southern Cal on Jan. 15.

The Crimson Tide are in the running for Gary’s fifth official visit along with UGA, LSU and Clemson, among others.

“I think he would be super successful (at Alabama),” Coney said. “Would he be super happy as he is being successful? I don’t know. Because to me at Alabama is all work, no play.”

Here is very early recruit reaction to Jeremy Pruitt to Alabama. Spoke with @bendavis_1 father and @MacAskew4 - http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2015/12/recruits_react_jeremy_pruitt_a.html …

Quote
Wayne Davis got to know Jeremy Pruitt well over the past two years when Pruitt recruited his son Ben, a five-star linebacker from Gordo, to Georgia.

Now, the relationship will continue with Pruitt as Alabama's defensive coordinator. AL.com has reported that Pruitt is expected to assume that role and Alabama made the news official on Friday afternoon.

Wayne, who will head to Hattiesburg, Miss., this afternoon to watch Ben play in Saturday's Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Classic, caught wind of the news Friday morning.

Wayne Davis, Alabama's all-time leading tackler, noted that Pruitt is a "great coach and a great recruiter."

"If that's something that 'Bama's seeking, man, no doubt, he'll be a good fit," Wayne Davis said. "As far as Ben goes, he's met Coach Pruitt numerous times. The system that he established there in Georgia would be a good fit for Ben, no doubt about it. If that's what is about to take place, I'm all for it. I think it would be great."

Wayne and Ben Davis have had a good relationship with Pruitt...

Quote
For the past 18 months, the 6-foot-6 frame of star high school quarterback Feleipe Franks seemed as prevalent on LSU’s campus as any current football player.

“He already new (sic) the terminology and schemes. ... I had a good source telling me that. That’s how entrenched he was,” Crabtree said. “He was the guy. He was walking around campus like he was running the place.”

They’re on the hunt for a QB, searching for a prospect to replace Franks — a guy ranked at one point as the top dual-threat QB in the 2016 class.

It’s not the best time to be looking.

MSU will fill Hughes' vacancy, but the feel the 31-year veteran coach has for recruiting won't be easy to replace http://on.thec-l.com/1YghCTs

Quote
Hughes left MSU to accept the head coaching position at Jackson State. Hughes’ on-field title at Mississippi State was assistant head coach and safeties coach. But his title of recruiting coordinator made him invaluable to Mississippi State.

Hughes spent 29 years coaching in the Magnolia State. Few, if any, understand the recruiting landscape within these borders better than Hughes. He’s coached high schools, in junior college, and at Southern Miss, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

His familiarity within Mississippi's high schools allowed the Bulldogs to unearth many prospects overlooked by other programs.

“He has been a loyal assistant and a tireless recruiter,” Mullen said in a release. “He’s done a tremendous job in helping elevate our program in our seven years here.”

Hughes also had the tools to reel in the highly-touted prospects. Last year, Leo Lewis, the top-rated inside linebacker in the country, remained undecided heading into signing day. Hughes closed the deal.

“Thank you for (Tony Hughes), God Bless,” Lewis tweeted after Hughes’ announcement at Jackson State.

LSU needs a quarterback commitment - fast:

http://bit.ly/1IhuFSZ

Quote
BATON ROUGE – With the loss of elite quarterback commitment Feleipe Franks to Florida, LSU has gone to the hurry-up, no-huddle recruiting offense to find another quarterback in time for national signing day on February 3.

Franks, the No. 2 pro style quarterback in the nation according to Rivals.com at 6-foot-6 and 203 pounds out of Wakulla High in Crawfordville, Florida, had been committed to LSU since June of 2014. Franks being in LSU’s fold was one reason why the Tigers lost No. 1 dual threat quarterback Shea Patterson out of Calvary Baptist in Shreveport via IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, to Ole Miss.

Franks attended LSU games early this season, then began shifting to his state school – the Florida Gators – and attended games at The Swamp.

Through early and mid-November – weeks before LSU athletic director Joe Alleva and LSU Board of Supervisors members began a move to fire head coach Les Miles – Franks told LSU coaches he was considering de-committing from the Tigers. On Monday, Nov. 23 – two days after LSU lost its third straight game to fall to 7-3 and Miles looked in danger of being fired – Franks told LSU he was de-committed. He then committed to Florida on Nov. 29 – one day after Miles saved his job with a 19-7 victory over Texas A&M to finish the regular season at 8-3. Franks signed with Florida last week.

LSU offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Cam Cameron had been the lead recruiter for Franks. And it did not help LSU’s efforts for Franks when Alleva did not allow Miles to extend Cameron’s contract, a three-year deal that expires in March. Miles has still been unable to extend Cameron’s contract.

Since the end of the regular season, Miles and Cameron have been trying to find another quarterback to sign for the class of 2016. Last Wednesday, Cameron spoke to Anthony Russo, a nationally unranked pro style quarterback out of Archbishop Wood High in Warminster, Pennsylvania, according to Shea Dixon of 247 Sports. Russo is committed to Rutgers but has not been recruited by a lot of big time programs. His other offers are from Bucknell, Buffalo, Connecticutt, Monmouth, Towson and Temple.

LSU coaches are also recruiting Dwayne Haskins, the No. 3 pro style quarterback in the nation and No. 83 overall prospect in the country, according to Rivals.com. Haskins (6-2, 188) is out of Bullis High in Potomac, Maryland. He has been committed to Maryland since May 15. He visited Ohio State on Dec. 11 and Florida on Nov. 27. LSU is also considering other high school quarterbacks. As of yet, Miles is not considering a transfer.

“I’m not really at this point in time looking for that,” Miles said Friday after practice. “And if I was, frankly, I wouldn’t tell you.”

Miles has four quarterbacks on scholarship now – sophomore starter Brandon Harris, junior Anthony Jennings, freshman Justin McMillan and Purdue transfer Danny Etling, who will be a junior next season.

Quote
By signing the papers, the Crimson Tide can have unlimited contact with Hurts. The grant-in-aid paperwork doesn’t bind Hurts to Alabama but it binds Alabama to Hurts, which means that the school must give him a scholarship. If he doesn’t sign, Alabama will be hit with recruiting violations.

A&M coach Kevin Sumlin had an in-home visit with Hurts shortly before the NCAA dead period began. The Aggies have had two former 5-star quarterbacks, Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray, transfer away from the program in the past week and now are in desperate need to fill the holes left by them.

Divinity said he's spoken to LSU recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson, head coach Les Miles and special teams coordinator/linebackers coach Bradley Dale Peveto and his relationship with those coaches played a major role in his recommitment.

Quote
SAN ANTONIO – Miami Central (Fla.) safety Jamel Cook didn't think an LSU offer was coming. But now that it has, it's given the Florida State commitment something to think about.

LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond extended an offer to the 6-foot-4, 190-pound safety this week and it was one Cook had been waiting on.

"It means hard work really pays off," Cook said. "I've been looking forward to getting offered by LSU and hopefully going up there and playing and competing for a starting spot."

Cook said he was going to take a visit to LSU but he wasn't sure exactly when as of yet. The date is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 29 with visits to Miami (Jan. 15) and Louisville (Jan. 22) also planned. He competed in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday...

There was no indication for Cook, who has been committed to Florida State since February, that an LSU offer was coming either.

"It just came out of nowhere," Cook said. "I had seen him at practice at Miami Central one time but I didn't talk to him. He just called one of my coaches and they offered me."

Cook is rated as a four-star safety by ESPN and 247 Sports and a three-star safety by Rivals.

Five of Mississippi's top 10 ranked prospects, according to 247Sports, have yet to commit. Noxubee County DE Jeffery Simmons, Starkville WR A.J. Brown, Germantown DB Nigel Knott, West Point OL Scott Lashley and Starkville DL Kobe Jones are the hottest names among uncommitted in-state talent. All five are planning multiple official visits over the next three weekends, but packing those visits into such a short time frame is harder than it looks.

Quote
The 6-foot, 258-pounder would have been lucky to play football and garner a free education at any of a list of stout options that included Alabama, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Florida State and Auburn.

The most impressive thing about White on Friday was the man he portrayed. He was dressed to the nines, appeared humble, contrite and answered every question.

White’s stand-up attitude was more impressive than anything he’s done on the football field. Many adults would have been combative, evasive or smug.

It wasn’t a viral mug shot or questions about his character that bothered the 17-year-old who graduated early with a 3.6 grade-point average and a 24 on his ACT.

It was facing his mother.

“It hurt me to see her hurt from something that I did, from something that I did that I know I can do better,” White said. “So anything she wants, I’m going to do it just to make her happy.”

White’s mother, Coesha Standokes, handled Friday like a pro, too.

She didn’t blindly defend her baby...

Ex-minor leaguer to return to LSU football Tigers as a walk-on http://wp.me/p14QTT-1wU7

Quote
The last time Zack Von Rosenberg was an LSU student-athlete, he was a 19-year-old baseball pitcher who was a good enough prospect to be a fairly high draft pick...

LSU announced Thursday that Von Rosenberg will join the football Tigers for spring practice as a walk-on.  The 25-year-old Von Rosenberg, who never pitched for the Tigers, spent 2009-14 in the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league system...

Von Rosenberg is listed at 6-5, 205 pounds, so receiver or quarterback could be the preferable starting points based on those height/weight specs.

Because Von Rosenberg signed a major league deal, he’s ineligible to play baseball at LSU.

Potential punter

LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron went to Maryland yesterday to visit with the four-star quarterback Dwayne Haskins, and after a lengthy conversation has convinced Haskins to make an official visit to LSU on Jan. 22 (https://www.seccountry.com/louisiana-state/lsu-gets-top-qb-target-to-commit-to-official-visit)

Quote
Haskins, a Maryland commit, remains a priority for the Tigers, who do not have a quarterback commit in its 2016 recruiting class.

Haskins was priority No. 1 for Cameron, but LSU will also have to battle with Ohio State to try and lure the prospect away from the Terrapins.

How recruiting can help Arkansas improve backfield http://es.pn/1PbBF6G

Quote
Razorbacks' best running backs are departing. Alex Collins, who was the SEC's third-leading rusher... Jonathan Williams, a senior who was Arkansas' 2014 rushing leader but lost his final season to injury...

Returning for Arkansas is sophomore-to-be Rawleigh Williams III, who was promising in the time he saw as a true freshman (56 carries, 254 yards, 4.5 yards per rush) before he had his season cut short by a neck injury suffered in October versus Auburn (he had successful surgery and is expected to make a full recovery). Williams is talented but unproven in the SEC and battling back from neck surgery isn't easy. Kody Walker, a fullback/running back who will be a sixth-year senior, hasn't carried the ball more in a season than the 90 times he did in 2015. Carries have been scarce for Denzell Evans, who will be a junior, and redshirt sophomore-to-be Juan Day...

Arkansas benefited greatly from the departure of Mark Richt at Georgia. The third-ranked running back in the country, Devwah Whaley, committed to Georgia on Thanksgiving night, but backed off that pledge when Richt was let go. Arkansas then turned the pressure up on the 6-foot, 195-pound back and eventually landed Whaley when he announced his commitment at the Under Armour All-America Game on Jan. 2.

With Whaley’s size and physical running style, the talented prospect should have a chance to compete for early playing time.

Quote
Ben Davis, the state's top prospect and a five-star linebacker from Gordo, flipped his official visit plans for the last two weekends and has an adjustment to his top five.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Davis will visit Alabama this weekend and Auburn next. Originally, it was going to be Auburn then Alabama.

Davis said he has his football banquet this weekend, so he can go to Tuscaloosa, leave for his banquet in Gordo (30-minute drive) and return to Tuscaloosa. It was more convenient to switch the dates.

Davis now says that Notre Dame has moved up to No. 2, and said Alabama and Georgia "are kind of sharing No. 1."

He said Auburn follows Notre Dame and then LSU. He officially visited LSU and Georgia last fall.

Willie Allen: Les Miles called LSU’s newest commit Willie Allen “the missing piece” (https://www.seccountry.com/auburn/les-miles-called-lsus-newest-commit-the-missing-piece)

Quote
“It wasn’t an easy decision,” Allen told SEC Country. “I sat down with my family to talk about it, and they didn’t make it easy for me.”

LSU edged out TCU and Auburn, but the decision truly came down to the Tigers and Horned Frogs.

Allie pegged the two teams as even throughout most of the process.

“Schools like TCU recruited me hard, but they were eight, nine hours away,” Allen said. “I got a lot of respect for their coaching staff, and when I told them I was going to commit, they said ‘I don’t care’ and ‘We love you.’ It wasn’t an easy decision. It was emotional and a tough decision.”

The 6-foot-7, 310-pound tackle and nation’s No. 15 prospect at the position.

“Coach Miles was happy,” Allen said of the call. “He says I’m the missing piece to the puzzle. That’s a good feeling, and I’m ready to get there and work … I plan on playing as a true freshman. I want to work hard this summer in the weight room to get better. I have a lot of confidence (I can play early), but I have to compete wherever I go.”

Auburn coaches attempted to meet with Allen on Thursday, but they didn’t have an opportunity. Auburn was one of the three finalists for Allen, who informed SEC Country that Ole Miss rescinded its offer last week.

Allen also was courted by UGA, Miami and Mississippi State.

“All of them are good schools and I have nothing bad to say about them,” Allen said. “Ole Miss dropped me because all of their tackle spots were filled. Coach Hugh (Freeze) came by last week and told me. I didn’t have a problem with it. It made my decision easier actually.”

Quote
State received help in the process of replacing key seniors on offense and defense on Thursday. FIve prospects from the 2016 recruiting class enrolled at the university.

The key name is Dontea Jones, who became eligible on Thursday. Cornerbacks Lashard Durr and C.J. Morgan-Walker, tight end Christian Roberson and defensive tackle Tre Brown all enrolled last week.

Jones, a 6-foot-4 tight end, should compete for reps starting on day one of spring practice. Jones is the top-ranked player at his position in all of junior college. He originally signed with Mississippi State last year. Mississippi State is extremely thin at tight end. It lost Darrion Hutcherson to graduation and Gus Walley's career is in jeopardy after multiple concussions.

Arkansas trying to make waves in LSU’s prominent recruiting ground http://sec.news/1OPb3VG

Quote
“There’s a lot of great Louisiana players at Arkansas, a lot that came out of the Catholic League,” said three-star linebacker Giovanni LaFrance, a St. Augustine prospect that committed to the Razorbacks on Saturday.

“Michael Smith played in the Catholic League,” LaFrance added. “Now he’s recruiting players out of the Catholic League because he knows a lot of the players are good.”

Arkansas’ current roster features six players that hail from The Boot, including two that played in the Catholic League: Dwayne Eugene and Henre’ Toliver, both from Archbishop Rummel.

Rummel is also where four-star defensive lineman and Razorbacks pledge Briston Guidry has been an All-State selection the past two years.

LSU recruiting mailbag: Which defensive backs will end up committing to the Tigers? http://sec.news/1JGvk16

Quote
Shyheim Carter, however, has seemingly brought LSU back into the mix after leaning toward Alabama, Ole Miss, Miami and UGA over the past couple of weeks. Carter has maintained strong ties with the LSU coaching staff, and because he has two children in nearby Kentwood, La., the Tigers could make a late push for the four-star corner.

Mullen made his fifth and final official visit to LSU last weekend, and has publicly stated that all five of his finalists — LSU, Florida State, Clemson, Louisville and TCU — all have a chance. However, LSU, Florida State and Clemson are the three most likely teams to nab a commitment from the four-star cornerback.

Between D’Andre Christmas-Giles and Stephon Taylor, which defensive tackle is more likely to end up at LSU?

Both of the New Orleans prospects are set to make their decision on Feb. 3, but Christmas-Giles is the defensive tackle more likely to don a purple and gold cap.

Rebels have 22 commitments prior to the last official visit weekend where it will host more than 20 prospects. Ole Miss expects to sign upward of 27 players, so there are roughly five or six spots left that Hugh Freeze and his staff hope to solidify this weekend. Among the big names expected are five-star defensive end Jeffery Simmons, who is arguably the Rebels' top priority. We won't call them an overwhelming favorite...

Is Mississippi State in panic mode?

MSU isn't in an ideal position with a handful of its remaining targets as time ticks away. It doesn't help the Bulldogs that West Point offensive tackle Scott Lashley is headed to LSU this weekend on an official visit as they have yet to land a commitment from the player many expected to be a Mississippi State pledge long before now...

Scott is the 28th-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the 2016 class and a three-star prospect. He had narrowed his list to LSU, Harvard, Maryland and Tulane, his father said Friday.

LSU has No. 1 class, according to 247Sports and ESPN, No. 2 in Rivals as signing day approaches:

http://bit.ly/1PJTeVC

Quote
BATON ROUGE – He was not LSU’s first choice, but LSU will be the choice of Zachary quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr., who said on his Twitter account Sunday afternoon that he will sign a scholarship with the Tigers on national signing day Wednesday. He became LSU’s 23rd commitment for the class, which is ranked No. 1 in the nation by the 247Sports recruiting website.

“After talking to my family, with plenty of prayer, I’ve decided to commit to LSU,” Scott tweeted on Sunday after visiting LSU over the weekend.

The Tigers offered Scott (5-11, 205 pounds) of Zachary High in the Baton Rouge area a scholarship on January 19. In November LSU lost long term commitment Feleipe Franks, the No. 3 ranked pro style quarterback in the country by Rivals.com of Wakulla High in Crawfordville, Florida, to Florida and quarterback guru head coach Jim McElwain. LSU then jumped onto Dwayne Haskins Jr., the No. 5 drop back quarterback in the country out of Bullis High in Potomac, Maryland, who considered LSU briefly before committing to Ohio State.

Scott, who has a 3.8 grade point average at Zachary, also had scholarship offers from Air Force, Army, Colgate, Grambling, Harvard, Louisiana-Monroe, Maryland, Navy, New Mexico State, Rutgers, Southern, Syracuse, Tulane and Wake Forest, among others. He visited Maryland on January 22 and Rutgers on January 24.

LSU’s class of 2016 remained No. 2 in the nation on Sunday behind No. 1 Ohio State, according to Rivals.com. 247Sports has LSU No. 1 and Ohio State No. 2. ESPN’s team rankings also has LSU at No. 1 and Ohio State at No. 2.

LSU last had a No. 1 class in Rivals.com’s rankings in 2003 under former head coach Nick Saban. Miles had the No. 2 class in Rivals.com in 2014 and in 2009 with Alabama No. 1 in both years. Miles’ 2009 class was No. 1 and Alabama No. 2 in the 247Sports rankings.

Riley Cole's father tells radio station Nick Saban wasn't reason for son's decommitment from Alabama http://s.al.com/E8rv1dg

Quote
One day after Oneonta linebacker Riley Cole decommitted from Alabama, his father David called into JOX FM's Opening Drive to clear the air.

The main points: the Cole family was most disappointed in the timing of the decision, said communication was the major issue and that Alabama head coach Nick Saban was "not the reason for this happening."

"The respect I have for Coach Saban and his family, I can't describe enough about it," David Cole said on JOX. "I really don't think he knew about what was trying to be presented to us."

Cole committed to Alabama last June and took his official visit to Alabama on the weekend of Jan. 15, supposedly furthering his relationship with new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.

But after Kirby Smart and Mel Tucker - Cole's primary recruiters - left for Georgia, communication started to drop. Last Friday - just five days before National Signing Day - the grayshirt talk came up with Cole.

"Communication was the biggest problem and when Riley asked them to give an answer, they wouldn't give him a straight answer," David Cole said. "We got the impression they were wanting to wait until after National Signing Day, see who they got, and then let Riley know if they wanted to grayshirt him.

"Finally, Riley was like, you know what, it's best for me to walk away, step back a little bit and see what other opportunities I have."

David Cole said Riley has a top three, but didn't want to say those schools. Oklahoma offered him Sunday night and he mentioned that other schools inquired, but most are full at this stage.

What's the real story with Alabama and former LB commit Riley Cole? Let's break it down... http://ow.ly/XOyG5

Quote
We heard from Cole, the Oneonta High School linebacker, on Twitter on Sunday, and we heard from his dad David on WJOX on Monday morning. We have not heard from Nick Saban or Jeremy Pruitt because college coaches can't comment in any kind of detail about a prospect until a prospect becomes a signee.

David Cole said Riley plans to sign with another school Wednesday on National Signing Day. No doubt Saban will be asked about Cole at the Alabama coach's NSD press conference.

The story, according to the Coles:

Riley committed to Alabama last summer. His primary recruiters were Kirby Smart and Mel Tucker, neither of whom still works for Alabama. Smart is now the Georgia head coach, and Tucker's his defensive coordinator.

Alabama discussed with the Coles that Riley might redshirt his freshman season, but the idea of grayshirting - pushing his enrollment back from this summer until next January - was never discussed.

Until Friday, when David Cole said Pruitt, Alabama's new defensive coordinator, mentioned grayshirting as a possibility in a conversation with Riley. David Cole said it appeared Alabama wanted to wait until after Signing Day - until other linebacker prospects announced their school choices - to decide whether Riley should grayshirt.

As you might imagine, this potential change in plans, this late in the process, bothered the Coles. It bothered Riley so much that he told the world Sunday on Twitter that he had de-committed from Alabama. His dad, who called "The Opening Drive" on WJOX to tell the story, said his son will not sign with Alabama. He did not say which school Riley will attend or which schools are among his new top-three choices.

David Cole appeared to absolve Saban of any responsibility for this late change in plans - he said he had nothing but the utmost respect for the Alabama coach - but he also said, as we all know, Saban is the ultimate decision-maker for his program.

Did Saban sign off on the grayshirt possibility? Did Pruitt do it on his own authority? We don't know, and Alabama can't say until Wednesday at the earliest.

Lashley leaving his home state is a major blow for Mississippi State. The Bulldogs aimed to establish Lashley as their future at left tackle and will instead finish out their O-line recruiting with DeSoto Central's Dareuan Parker, Philadelphia's Greg Eiland and Fort Pierce Central's (Fla.) Stewart Reese. South Carolina offensive guard commit Lloyd Cushenberry may be the fourth and final offensive lineman for the Bulldogs if he flips on national signing day Wednesday.

Take Two: Who had the surprise SEC signing class? http://es.pn/23X4bxv

Quote
...the most undervalued class, to me, belongs to Arkansas. And it's not just this year, Bret Bielema has quietly built a very solid roster since coming to town late in 2012.

With this current class, though, the best thing I saw was how Bielema addressed a major need on the defensive line. I felt like there was too much benefit of the doubt given to the defensive line at this time last year, with Darius Philon and Trey Flowers moving on, and we saw how much the Razorbacks wound up struggling in their absence. But with two of their four highest-rated signees coming at the position, including No. 11 overall prospect McTelvin Agim, they are now in position to build for the future as well as the here and now.

Beyond that, I think Arkansas got a potential workhorse running back in Devwah Whaley, and I can see four-star T.J. Hammonds being a major weapon for offensive coordinator Dan Enos in the future, whether at receiver or out of the backfield.

But the most intriguing signee of all is quarterback Cole Kelley. First, you think about the depth Bielema already has in his quarterback room, including Austin Allen, Rafe Peavey, Ty Storey and Ricky Town. That's a heck of a group as it is. Now you throw in Kelley, who I believe has major upside despite already being considered the 16th-best pocket passer in his class. He's remarkably tall (6-foot-7), and if you watch his film, you see that he has a cannon for an arm. His footwork needs help, but his instincts are promising and could be developed further by Enos, who did masterful work with Brandon Allen, who was left for dead before emerging as one of the best quarterbacks in the conference as a senior last season.

Though I'm still somewhat concerned that Bielema hasn't signed a cornerback in his past two classes, the overall outlook appears strong...

2017 recruiting cycle could prove historic in the state of Alabama.

The state boasts more players who are likely to sign with FBS programs than ever before...

"I think in 2017 the class will be deeper at the top, meaning more SEC and ACC-type guys. There already are 17 guys at this stage pegged as four-star recruits or better on Scout.com – that's about double the number from 2016, and it's only the beginning."

Garcia said Scout currently has Clay-Chalkville wide receiver Nico Collins rated as the top rising senior in the state, but he is already the third player to hold that spot. The first was Madison Academy tackle Austin Troxell. He was followed by Central-Phenix City linebacker Markail Benton.

"In years past, it's been pretty easy to determine the No. 1 guy," Garcia said. "Two years ago, Daron Payne was clearly the guy..."

SEC West teams' biggest recruiting needs in 2017 class http://es.pn/1TDlYFg

Quote
Arkansas: Offensive line/cornerback. Bret Bielema’s staff needs to get some young bodies on the roster along the offensive line after signing just one high school lineman in this class: four-star guard Jake Heinrich. (The Razorbacks did add a pair of junior college linemen in Terrance Malone and Paul Ramirez-Diaz.) The Hogs will be inexperienced along the offensive line this season and will lose senior tackle Dan Skipper after this fall.

Arkansas did not sign a cornerback in the 2016 class, which will make it more of a pressing need next year. The Hogs already have a commitment from 2017 athlete Jarrod Barnes, who could play cornerback in college.

#Alabama and #Auburn are already pushing hard for a 9th grader who might be the top 2019 recruit: http://ow.ly/ZXd26

Quote
Owen Pappoe didn't turn 15 until last Sept. 29, but his offer list already reads like a Who's Who of college football powers. Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Tennessee and South Carolina were among those who offered prior to last July. Alabama offered earlier this year. Clemson has followed.

In the race to become the top prospect in the 2019 class, the 6-foot, 200-pound Pappoe, a linebacker at Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., may be the early leader.

At the Opening regional, Pappoe earned SPARQ MVP honors with a rating of 128.22. He tested with rising seniors, many of whom are elite prospects. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.57 seconds, the shuttle in 4.12 seconds, jumped 39 inches vertically and threw the power ball 42.5 feet.

He's still just a freshman in high school.

Pappoe was in Hoover last year with Grayson playing in a 7v7 tournament. His coach at the time, Mickey Conn, had experience with top prospects. Robert Ndemkiche was the No. 1 prospect in the class of 2013 before signing with Ole Miss.

"So far, he's handled (attention) pretty well," Conn said last summer. "We're just trying to protect him. He's taking everything in stride. He's very humble about it and the team's been very accepting of it. We've had some good players in that eighth grade group, but he's been a standout."

Pappoe backed up the hype as a freshman, recording 104 tackles, 11 pass breakups, eight tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, one interception, one defensive touchdown and a blocked field goal for a Grayson team that reached the semifinals.

Pappoe said that one of his coaches, Kenyatta Watson, noticed him playing basketball in middle school and got him out for football. The rest is history.

In-state four-star LB drops Alabama, names Auburn his leader http://sec.news/1N2IWzO

Following an unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa on Friday, Tadarian Moultry, a four-star linebacker from Birmingham, Ala., said he is no longer considering the Crimson Tide.

“I don’t have that bond with my assistant coach, so, there is no need to keep playing with a school’s head,” said Moultry. “I don’t have a bond with the (assistant) coach, so there’s no need for me to be talking to the school.”

bama was the latest stop in a string of recent unofficial visits for Moultry, who visited Auburn and Georgia earlier in the week.

“I never hear from them,” Moultry said of his relationship with Alabama. “I want to have that bond with the assistant coach. (Offensive line coach Mario) Cristobal is my recruiter, but he’s not going to be coaching me if I decide to go there.”

With Alabama removed from the picture, Moultry confirmed Auburn is now his front-runner. He’s unofficially visited The Plains on several occasions since January, and his relationship with first-year linebackers coach Travis Williams has aided in the Tigers’ pursuit of the in-state prospect.

Ole Miss and Georgia —

Moultry is rated the No. 9 inside linebacker in the country and the No. 13 prospect in Alabama.

Last weekend, the one-time unlikely scenario of Tuanigamanuolepola Tagovailoa, the nation’s No. 2 dual-threat quarterback, playing in the SEC took a big step toward becoming reality. He and his family made the more than 4,000-mile trip from their home in Honolulu to visit three SEC schools — Alabama, Auburn and Ole Miss. (https://www.seccountry.com/alabama/desire-to-dream-big-could-land-nations-no-2-dual-threat-qb-his-family-in-sec-country)

Quote
Tagovailoa, who threw for 2,916 yards and scored 35 total touchdowns last season, has publicly declared Southern California as his No. 1 school for more than a year. After all, it’s the school the lefty says he’s dreamed about playing for.

His father, Galu (pronounced Na-loo), says Southern Cal is the school his family has loved and the program that “has always been a part of our lives, and a part of our heart.”

LSU running backs coach Jabbar Juluke made the short trek to Jennings (La.) High School last week to see one of the state’s most electric running backs prospect in the Class of 2017. (https://www.seccountry.com/louisiana-state/lsu-showing-interest-in-3-star-rb-but-theres-a-twist)

(https://o.twimg.com/2/proxy.jpg?t=HBifAWh0dHBzOi8vcmVzLmNsb3VkaW5hcnkuY29tL2NtZ3ZlcnRpY2Fscy9pbWFnZS91cGxvYWQvY19jcm9wLGZfYXV0byxnX25vcnRoX3dlc3QsaF8xNzM0LHFfODAsd18zMjk1LHhfMCx5XzM5Mi9oXzYyNCx3XzExODYvdjE0NjM0MDQ4NDIvVHJhdmlzX0V0aWVubmVfbm16emlqLmpwZxTEEhTYCRwUhAYUlAMAABYAEgA&s=xfUo7IZAmXSqLbR0N4Di7Sjee7kaP61uG2aa1tQaQE8)

Quote
Travis Etienne released his top 10 schools, which included five SEC powers — Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

“Able to change with new offers!” the 5-foot-11, 199-pounder wrote.

One offer that could be on its way in is from LSU, his hometown school that has maintained a close eye on the budding respect throughout the spring.

Juluke’s presence at Etienne’s practice was a sign that the interest in the running back is real.

“It was nice to see him,” Etienne told SEC Country. “I’m glad to know that they (LSU) had some kind of interest in me.”

Etienne has informed SEC Country that LSU is considering extending an offer to the prospect from Southwestern Louisiana, but not as a running back.

Instead, the Tigers coaches view Etienne as a candidate to play safety, a position the three-star running back doesn’t want to go play.

“I’m not sure why at all,” Etienne said, “but I’m just happy that I’m getting recruited by them to play football at their school.”

The 10 schools that Etienne included in his top 10 all view him as a potential backfield stud, which was one of the criterium (sic) he used to devise his list.

He also only featured schools that have offered him...

LSU would recruit an RB and move him to the defense.

Austin Troxell, a four-star offensive tackle from Madison (Ala.) Academy, visited Auburn on Saturday for Big Cat Weekend and the Tigers’ position with him didn’t change much.

“I wouldn’t say it’s different. It’s still 50-50 right now,” Troxell told SEC Country. “I love both schools. I’m still really torn on the decision. I really don’t know what I’m going to do. I really like both places, so it’s just going to be whatever fits me best.”

6-foot-7, 330-pounder [plans to make] a commitment before his senior season starts, and he’s still not any closer to making a decision.

Auburn didn’t pressure Troxell for a commitment Saturday. But when he did talk to Tigers coach Gus Malzahn, the message was clear.

“Every time I see (Malzahn), he’s constantly reminding me of the need for tackles,” Troxell said. “I got to see another side of all of the coaches. It wasn’t stressful today.”

The Under Armour All-American did have one serious conversation with Malzahn that could potentially affect his recruitment.

There’s no secret that Malzahn is on the hot seat this season.

The 6-foot, 193-pound speedster is already set to attend the 2017 Under Armour All-American Game and is the 17th best wide receiver in the country and 17th best prospect in the state of Texas.

247Sports currently projects Jones to attend Texas A&M.

Hayden, a rising 3-star running back in the 2017 class from St. George’s Independent School (Collierville, Tenn.), has the Razorbacks among his favorite schools in large part because of how past players have excelled under Bielema at his position.

Bielema has had at least one running back rush for over 1,000 yards in each of his 10 seasons as a head coach at Wisconsin and Arkansas. He’s the only FBS coach with that stat on his resume over the last decade.

“I haven’t really watched the Arkansas running backs (Bielema) has had,” Hayden told SEC Country’s Corey Masisak at The Opening on Saturday afternoon.

“But at Wisconsin … James White, Melvin Gordon, Montee Ball, I watched all those guys. I saw what he could do with them.”

Hayden said he’s expecting to set his commitment date soon. He currently lists Arkansas, Michigan and South Carolina as his top schools.

He emphasized a strong relationship with the coaching staff and the chance at early playing time are essential factors to his decision-making process, a good sign for the Razorbacks.

Gadsden City Titans were ejected from USA Football 7on7 National Championships in Hoover for an on-field confrontation during a game against Warren Easton (La.). Coach Matt Scott conceded his players left the bench area while two players fought, but complained that the rules were enforced unfairly and inconsistently. (http://highschoolsports.al.com/news/article/716413583381892753/it-smells-bad-gadsden-city-ejected-from-usa-football-7on7-national-championship-for-leaving-bench-for-fight)

Quote
Warren Easton coach Jerry Phillips Phillips [sic] provided a one-word answer when asked if any of his players left the bench: “No,” he said.

Here’s how Scott recounted Friday’s situation: On a point-after play, a Warren Easton defender jammed a Gadsden City receiver at the line of scrimmage and knocked him to the ground. The two immediately began fighting in front of the Gadsden City bench.

That’s when a number of Titans ran onto the field.  “We didn’t leave the bench to get into a fight,” Scott added. “We went to try to break it up.”

Phillips Phillips saw things differently.

“One of their receivers got into it with my linebacker,” Phillips Phillips said. “The receiver hit my linebacker four or five times before he actually retaliated. When he retaliated, (Gadsden City) ran off the sideline.”

Once order was restored, game officials met with Scott and Phillips Phillips. Scott said officials suggested that the two players involved in the initial fight be ejected, but Phillips disagreed and said “we should follow the rules,” meaning Gadsden City should be ejected from the tournament.

Phillips Phillips said none of his players left the bench area.

AL.com called tournament director Brandon Sheppard, who declined to discuss the situation.

With a national title on the line this week, Scott said he believes tournament officials wanted to make an example out of Gadsden City to avoid future altercations.

“It’s hard not to feel like we’re being targeted here,” he said.

Scott conceded the tournament rules allow a team to be disqualified if players leave the bench area for a fight. Warren Easton was also aware of the rule.

“We actually talked about it that before the tournament,” Phillips Phillips said. “When I saw it in the rulebook, I told it to the team. It just so happens this situation came about, and my guys reacted the way they were supposed to react.”

Apparently the one place in the free world with no video capability available to review the incident.

MARRERO, La. — Corey Lambert grew up on John Ehret football.

Ehret lost its first nine games of the 2012 season and was down to about 40 players left on the roster. Much of the talent from Marrero was instead enrolled at Catholic League schools such as nearby Archbishop Shaw and fellow Jefferson Parish power Archbishop Rummel, while others attended budding West Bank programs such as Edna Karr and O. Perry Walker.

Lambert had his work cut out for them, realizing that he had to make sure that the talent in the city, stayed in the city.

Visits to playgrounds, middle schools and feeder schools resulted in long days and nights of convincing kids and their parents that John Ehret was a program on the rise. An 0-9 campaign to start his coaching tenure didn’t exactly make his job easier, but the promise of molding young men, instilling discipline and lifelong preparation would eventually translate into success on the football field.

Since that 0-9 season in 2012, Lambert has compiled a 30-8 record, including two district championships and a share of a third, and an appearance in Louisiana’s Class 5A title game last December. In the process, Ehret has produced a bevy of SEC talent, including Darrel Williams (LSU), Michael Divinity Jr. (LSU) and De’Jon Harris (Arkansas), who he considers pioneers of the program.

In doing so, Lambert has created a winning culture back in Marrero by getting alumni and other members of the community involved, which is why SEC coaches are constantly stopping by the high school and reaching out to the coach about his players.

Nathan Page lucky to walk away from ‘life-changing’ car wreck (https://www.seccountry.com/arkansas/arkansas-recruit-nathan-page-lucky-to-walk-away-from-life-changing-car-wreck)

Quote
After the wreck, Page made a call to his mother, Mickie, who arrived at a scary scene for any parent.

“When I get there, this car is wrapped into a tree and all four boys are just walking around,” Mickie said. “They’re cut up and they’re hurt, but they’re fine. It’s a miracle. They really slammed into a tree and they walked away.”

Page’s father, Larry, was equally as relieved to see his son come away from the wreck with no significant injuries.

“Like any parent, when you see that car and you see your child is essentially OK, the first thing you do is thank God,” Larry said. “The car is replaceable. We were so thankful the injuries weren’t more serious than they were.”

Potential concussion symptoms were the only thing that would’ve kept Page from playing Friday night, something his mom kept a close eye on.

“As we were leaving the hospital, they were saying they don’t recommend that he play,” Mickie said. “I told them if he doesn’t have any concussion symptoms and he can get out of that bed, he’s going to play tomorrow. But if I saw any of those symptoms he wouldn’t have played. Otherwise, there’s not much I can do to keep him from playing.”

Page, the No. 1 in-state prospect in the 2018 class, is being recruited by Arkansas and several major programs. He currently doesn’t have any FBS scholarship offers, but those are expected to come once his summer transcript arrives. He most recently visited Arkansas for the Hogs’ 42-3 win over Texas State and said he “loves” the program.

His parents are just happy their son still has an opportunity to pursue his dreams on the football field after Thursday’s wreck.

“I got a chance to look at him and say, ‘Listen bud, I could’ve lost you. There’s stuff we’ve got to fix and things we’ve got to deal with, but it’s stuff. It’s all stuff compared to you. We’ll figure it out. It’s all OK,’ ” Mickie said.

High, but the 6-foot, 215-pounder was selected as a running back on Mississippi’s all-star roster, which was announced today. There are only three running backs, with Clinton’s Darius Mayberry, Akers’ teammate, as one of the three.

Mississippi’s roster also featured LSU quarterback commit Myles Brennan...

Cam Akers has been one of LSU’s top priorities since Jabbar Juluke has taken over as the Tigers’ running backs coach.

With a potential shuffle in the number of wide receivers, running backs and linebackers on the horizon, there is definitely room in the 2017 class for the 5-star Mississippi running back.

“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.”

Hogs are looking to impress some 2017 recruits taking an official visit for the game. Most notably among those are Michigan safety commit J’Marick Woods, Kansas defensive line commit Troy James and Oklahoma State defensive end commit Nelson Mbanasor. There will also be a long list of prominent 2018 and 2019 prospects taking unofficial visits. The atmosphere surrounding the 6 p.m. CT kick at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium will no doubt help impress the visitors. Combine that with a victory, or at least a competitive game, and the Hogs will certainly have made a huge positive impact on the recruiting trail.

Arkansas gained some momentum among recruits after its win at TCU earlier this season. Some of that was lost after falling to Texas A&M...

In a span of one week, Texas A&M lost two young former five-star quarterbacks.

Sophomore Kyle Allen left Texas A&M on Dec. 10. Freshman Kyler Murray decided to transfer less than a week later. It left the Aggies with only two scholarship quarterbacks on their roster: Jake Hubenak, who began the season as the third-string quarterback, and a former walk-on.

They needed a quarterback bad, especially since — at that point — they were without a commitment from a single Class of 2016 quarterback and had yet to add Trevor Knight.

So, Texas A&M tried to get Jalen Hurts.

Hurts is from Channelview, Texas, which is about 90 minutes away from Texas A&M's campus. Sumlin and Hurts' father, a high school coach in Texas, have a long-standing relationship, and Hurts competed against Aggies players like standout freshman running back Trayveon Williams while they were in high school.

The proximity and family's relationship with Sumlin were two reasons Hurts had interest in Texas A&M prior to committing to Alabama.

The Tide became a true factor in Hurts' recruitment last spring. Alabama offered Hurts a scholarship in February, but it wasn't a committable offer.

Hurts committed to Alabama in early June over Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Florida. Averion Hurts, Jalen's father, told AL.com at the time that his son was told he was the No. 1 quarterback on each team's board.

"I honestly felt there wasn't another place out there that compared," Hurts, the third-ranked dual-threat quarterback, said in February at the Tide's National Signing Day press conference. "Alabama, I feel, is on another level in many ways. That stood out to me."

Sumlin was hopeful that he could get Hurts to flip his commitment from Alabama to Texas A&M once the Aggies reached back out last December.

The in-home meeting consisted of Sumlin and running backs coach Clarence McKinney meeting with Hurts and his family for around an hour and trying to sell them on why Hurts should go to Texas A&M.

They were unsuccessful.

The Aggies eventually did add a quarterback. Knight...

Here’s a look at some of the top recruiting battles involving the Hogs and Tigers in the 2017 class:

    4-star DB Montaric Brown: Arkansas’ top in-state prospect from Ashdown


    4-star TE Jeremy Patton: Another highly coveted JUCO recruit, Patton holds more than 25 offers from FBS programs. He committed to Arkansas in June, reportedly selecting the Hogs over Auburn and Louisville.

   4-star DT Isaiah Buggs: One of the top junior-college prospects in the class, Buggs has listed Alabama, Auburn, LSU and Mississippi as his top schools. However, that hasn’t stopped Arkansas from heavily pursuing him.

   3-star LB Thomas Johnston: From Spanish Fort (Ala.) High School, Johnston has an offer from both programs, but the Tigers are getting no home-state advantage here. He announced his current top seven schools after visiting Arkansas last weekend. The Hogs made the cut; the Tigers did not.

I don’t think any of Arkansas’ 19 commits are currently looking elsewhere. Nor do I think the prospects at the top the Hogs’ list will be put off, assuming the team recovers and finishes with some good wins.

The defensive coordinator (Robb Smith) might not have a job for long. Would that hurt or help the Hogs in recruiting?

Hogs entered the bye week coming of a 56-3 loss at Auburn. The lopsided outcome potentially having a negative effect on recruiting last week was something Hargreaves was aware of but didn’t sense it hurt the Hogs much.

“Bottom line is guys are going to do what they do regardless,” Hargreaves said. “Sometimes it has and effect; sometimes it doesn’t. I didn’t see any of that or feel any of that. I probably brought it up more than anybody else, because you know how it is. I figured I’d beat them to the punch. It is what it is. If they like Arkansas, they’re going to like Arkansas anyway.”

DeVonta Smith
Position: 4-star WR

LSU take: Smith is Louisiana’s top prospect, so nabbing him is a priority. LSU entered the mix once Dameyune Craig was added to the staff.

Todd Harris
Position: 4-star DB
Hometown: Plaquemine, La.

LSU take: LSU holds commitments from two of the nation’s premier safeties — Grant Delpit and JaCoby Stevens — but continues to save room in the 2017 class for Harris.

Dylan Moses (Alabama commit)
Position: 5-star LB
Hometown: Baton Rouge, La.

Asa Martin is apparently returning to Austin High in Decatur.

The running back played this fall at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, but he tweeted earlier tonight that he plans to return to Austin, where he emerged as a star as sophomore in 2015. He will presumably be eligible to play for the Black Bears in 2017.

RELATED: Take deep look at IMG's football program

Martin thanked IMG and said it was an "unforgettable experience,

"There is nothing like home, playing football and making memories with the people you love the most," he wrote on Twitter, "so I am transferring back to Austin High School."

Martin becomes the second Alabama player to have a short stay at IMG.

Buckhorn linebacker Will Ignont transferred to IMG in January – at the same time as Martin – but stayed only a few months and then returned to Buckhorn, where he played his senior season.

Martin, a 6-foot, 190-pounder, is a four-star prospect, according to 247sports Composite, and is the 11th-best running back nationally in the Class of 2017 [sic].

It's unclear if Martin will finish the season with IMG (9-0), which is scheduled to play Chaminade-Madonna on Saturday. IMG has three more games on its schedule. Immediate efforts to reach Martin failed, and Austin is playing Pell City tonight in the first round of the 2016 Class 6A playoffs.

"We love Asa to death. He's a great young man. He's a great athlete," Austin coach Jeremy Perkins after tonight's 41-19 victory over Pell City. "It'll be great to see him wearing orange and black again. However, I do want to point out my focus right now is the current football team and what they're doing and making a strong playoff run."

Note that Asa Martin is the #11 RB in the Class o' '18 not '17 as noted in the article.  Transferring this late except for academic reasons would reflect poorly on young Martin unless he suffered a head injury.  The head injury was apparently suffered by writer Josh Bean.
