Gorney’s take: FACT. I nonetheless suppose Georgia can land Mykel Williams though he was anticipated to choose the Bulldogs lately and delayed his choice as a result of the five-star defensive finish was undecided about his decide. However there’s a entire lot extra competitors in his recruitment now and I’m listening to Alabama is stepping it up with Williams as properly together with USC, Ohio State and others. There’s completely a very good likelihood Williams leads to Athens however the Bulldogs could possibly be slipping just a little bit and I’d watch Alabama if it steps it up much more.
Reuse’s take: FICTION. There could have been some issues that Georgia could possibly be falling for Williams after he determined to push his dedication date ahead, however I nonetheless contemplate the Bulldogs the odds-on favourite for his companies as of right this moment. The in-state issue is enjoying massive, the workers is making him a significant precedence, and it appears as if Georgia has executed a robust job recruiting his household, as properly. USC is an actual menace, and LSU and Ohio State are main gamers as properly. Visits might actually shift the notions, however forward of that, I are likely to suppose Georgia will get this one executed in the long run, due to immense push each on campus and amongst their dedicated recruits.
Gorney’s take: FICTION. I might not be shocked if Clemson finally ends up touchdown Daylen Everette and Toriano Pleasure however Ryan Turner appears to be the hardest promote for me proper now. A South Florida child, Turner appears to actually like Ohio State and the town vibe in Columbus in comparison with Clemson which is unquestionably extra of a rural setting. Pleasure is a troublesome name right here as a result of Ohio State can also be concerned and so is Missouri and I’ve been advised his record actually stays longer than others. Lukus virtually appears like a certain factor for Clemson after which I feel the Tigers might land two others however not all three names above.
Strelow’s take: FICTION. It is not that Clemson is not within the legit working for all three. However any rundown of the Tigers’ predicted cornerback haul has to begin with Mauldin (S.C.) four-star Jeadyn Lukus, a precedence goal of their crosshairs.
Place coach Mike Reed has proven to be impressively environment friendly with what he will get. However this is likely to be the yr they take three due to a dire want, having simply gone by means of the spring sport with solely three wholesome scholarship choices. The Tigers might need the sting over Ohio State and Missouri for Pleasure, who would complement Lukus as a subject nook. We would maybe give the Buckeyes the benefit for Turner.
Everette is extra the wild card. Clemson started pushing for him as a nationwide man properly earlier than the opposite suitors in its stratosphere got here calling. So the Tigers have a outstanding seat on the desk, however there’s nonetheless appreciable work to be executed.

Gorney’s take: FACT. I’d be very shocked if Rodney Hill finally ends up wherever else. A couple of weeks after touchdown the Florida State supply, the three-star athlete backed off his Virginia pledge but it surely was telling as soon as the Seminoles provided it seemed like it could be robust for the Cavaliers to hold on. It was clear when FSU provided that Hill was extremely and whereas Virginia goes to attempt to grasp on and get him again within the class, a pledge to Florida State could possibly be coming quickly. If Hill finally ends up wherever else, it could be a significant shock at this level.
Langston’s take: FACT. I might say issues look fairly good right here for FSU. Ever because the Seminoles provided this recruitment has been turned the wrong way up and so they have been the main focus. I might not be shocked in the event you see a dedication this weekend after the spring sport which he is anticipated to attend.
FSU desires two backs on this class. At this stage Hill and Jaylon Glover appear to be the fellows to observe right here at RB. There are numerous causes I like FSU. First is Hill’s grandmother, who prefers and loves Florida State. Subsequent, Hill has shut ties to Seminoles gamers Curtis Fann and TJ Davis, each from Georgia. Subsequent, Hill has a terrific relationship with offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham. This one appears good for Florida State.
