Drayk Bowen: The four-star linebacker released his top five in recent days with LSU, Auburn, Clemson, Indiana and Notre Dame making the cut and many believe the Irish have the edge in his recruitment. For Bowen, the relationships at those schools matter a lot, along with the opportunity to play both football and baseball. Considering his schedule, Bowen is planning trips to Clemson, Notre Dame and Auburn this season.
Troy Bowles: The four-star linebacker from Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit had a busy summer of visits and he will be back on the road this fall with definite trips to Ohio State and Rutgers for games. More could happen, but Bowles knows of those two for sure.
Malik Bryant:Texas A&M, Ohio State, Georgia and Maryland have impressed Bryant through the summer, and Clemson and Miami are also high on the list. As for visits this fall for games, the four-star linebacker/defensive end wants to get to Miami, Ohio State and Maryland, but is still working on dates.
Tackett Curtis: The four-star linebacker from Many, La., has some Big Ten schools high on his radar, among many others, but watching games in the fall and taking trips is really going to be super important as Curtis works on his list of favorites.
Shamar Easter:Arkansas, Florida State, Clemson, LSU and Auburn are the five programs standing out most to the four-star tight end from Ashdown, Ark. and he’s planning to take visits for games this season but nothing is final yet. There are some rumors that the Razorbacks lead, while others say Clemson looks best.
Tre Edwards:USC and Arizona are the two schools standing out the most to the Chula Vista (Calif.) Mater Dei Catholic four-star linebacker who does not have any plans yet for visits during the college football season.
Rodney Gallagher: Also a standout basketball player, the four-star receiver from Uniontown (Pa.) Laurel Highlands only visited four schools over the summer, but Penn State and West Virginia were the programs that stood out most.
Justice Haynes:Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, LSU, Notre Dame and Clemson are the six frontrunners right now for the four-star running back from Roswell (Ga.) Blessed Trinity. The UGA legacy has said that won’t play a major role in his thinking because what was best for his father might not be best for him.
Walker Lyons:Texas, Ohio State, Stanford and Washington are the four schools standing out most to the four-star tight end from Folsom, Calif., and he’s hoping to visit numerous SEC schools in the fall. Rumors about Ole Miss standing out most in his recruitment are overdone, according to a source.
Cole Martin: The four-star cornerback who’s now at Chandler (Ariz.) Basha is planning to visit UCLA for the LSU matchup. He’s going to a game at Oregon and he will hit up Arizona State games as well. Martin would like to go national this fall, but his schedule won’t allow many trips like that yet.
Francis Mauigoa:Oregon and possibly other West schools are emerging as a serious contender for the high four-star offensive tackle at Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy as it would be easier for his family to come see his games. The massive lineman is originally from American Samoa.
Deandre Moore:Oklahoma is considered one of the top teams for the four-star wide receiver who just transferred from Las Vegas Desert Pines to Los Alamitos, Calif., and then Florida State, Alabama, Texas, Oregon and USC stand out. Moore is trying to get to Florida State and Oklahoma for games this year, and he expects to be at USC a lot, too.
Caleb Presley:Alabama, Washington, Oregon, Texas A&M and Notre Dame are some schools to watch with the four-star cornerback from Seattle Rainier Beach, but a new offer from LSU is definitely a major one in his recruitment. Presley is planning a trip to Baton Rouge soon and he’s also looking at narrowing down his list.
Justyn Rhett: The SEC programs are standing out most to Rhett, with Alabama, Georgia, LSU and others among the favorites, along with Notre Dame early on for Rhett, who doesn’t have any plans for visits yet this fall.
Shelton Sampson: The recruitment for the high four-star receiver from Baton Rouge (La.) Catholic could already be shaping up to be a two-team race as LSU and Texas A&M are standing out the most to him right now.
James Smith:Texas A&M was the visit that stood out most to Smith in June but by early August the Montgomery (Ala.) Carver four-star defensive end said no schools particularly stood out. He would like to visit Ohio State this fall.
Aveion Terrell:Clemson and Auburn are the early frontrunners for the four-star cornerback from Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake, and Clemson should be watched since his brother, A.J., played there. Visits to Florida, Auburn and Georgia are being planned for this season.`
Javien Toviano:Oklahoma, Alabama, Oregon and Michigan are the four standout schools through the summer for the four-star cornerback from Arlington (Texas) Martin. A busy fall schedule is planned as Toviano wants to see games in all Power Five conferences, but nothing is finalized yet.
Peter Woods:Alabama, LSU, Clemson, UCF and Florida were the schools that most impressed the four-star defensive end from Alabaster (Ala.) Thompson. The Crimson Tide are rumored to be in the best spot, but Woods is planning a round of visits in the fall so no teams are eliminated yet.
Richard Young:Ohio State and Alabama have long been the frontrunners for the high four-star running back from Lehigh Acres (Fla.) Lehigh, and that continued through the summer. Clemson is also now a school to watch as well and Young is planning trips to all three schools in the fall.
