Chad Simmons- National Recruiting Analyst

Thursday: Columbia (Fla.) at Middleburg (Fla.) at 7 p.m.
These two schools are going in different directions right now.  Middleburg is 1-5 and Columbia is 5-1.  Columbia is the team expected to win this game and they will be led by five-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil.  The No. 4 overall prospect in the country has been playing at a high level and I expect him to continue that in this game.  Javere Smith is a tweener for Columbia at 6-feet 2-inches tall and 245 pounds, but he is a football player.  2014 safety Trey Marshall is one of the top 2014 defensive backs in the Sunshine State and 2014 running back Rakeem Battle is a running back to keep an eye on.

Friday: Macon County (Ga.) at Dooly County (Ga.) at 7:30 p.m.<br>
Both of these teams are having good seasons and this is a big match-up when talking region standings, but when talking recruiting, the big attraction is defensive tackle Montravius Adams out of Dooly County.  The No. 1 defensive tackle in the country on Scout will face double and triple teams all evening, but he will still make his plays.

Jamie Newberg - National Recruiting Analyst
Friday: Lakeland (Fla.) Lake Gibson at Davenport (Fla.) Ridge Community at 7:30 p.m.
Lake Gibson has four senior standouts that are all BCS recruits. Kennard Swanson has committed to LSU. He's a very large (6-0/245) fullback prospect that spends most of his time playing defensive tackle. Anthony Green is a defensive end alongside Swanson that has committed to Cincinnati. Running back Tyler Brown ha committed to Iowa State. Wide receiver Eric Carter has scholarship offers from teams like Cincinnati, Minnesota, Marshall, FIU, Iowa State, Missouri and Purdue.  Quarterback Trey Congdon and safety Kendall Gant are two recruits to watch for in the next class of 2014. Ridge Community is led by senior standout athlete Shykeem Pitts. Likebackers Nick Evans and Eshawn Davis, offensive lineman Mike Arroyo and running back Glen Sanon are four juniors with D1 potential.

Michael Clark- Atlantic Recruiting Analyst
Friday: Chapel Hill (N.C.) East Chapel Hill vs. Durham (N.C.) Hillside at 7:30 p.m.
East Chapel Hill travels to Durham looking to upset a Hillside team that has won five in a row.  The Wildcats are 5-4 and led by senior quarterback Ben Jones who has thrown for close to 1,600 yards.  Other key players are junior running back Colby Jones, senior wide receiver Jackson Boyer, senior wide receiver Will Buckley, and junior defensive lineman Chris Alston.  Hillside comes in with a record of 6-2 and loaded with talent.  The Hornets’ offense is led by senior running back Khris Francis (North Carolina commit) who has rushed for over 1,000 yards.  The defensive leader is senior safety Korrin Wiggins (North Carolina commit).  Senior tight end Javien Knight is a prospect whose stock is also rising, as he is well into double-digit offers.  The junior class is also loaded.  Wide receiver Trevion Thompson and running back Donte Williams are two of the top prospects in the 2014 class.

Geoff Vogt - Florida Recruiting Analyst
Thursday: Coral Reef (Fla.) vs. Killian (Fla.) at Southridge at 4:00 p.m.
This is a virtual elimination game in District 16-8A as both teams already have a loss in district.  Coral Reef is led by top juniors Nicodem Pierre (QB), Jacob McCray (WR- FSU commit), and Marcus Leslie (CB).  Pierre has the size and arm strength to attract a lot of attention down the road.  Killian features sensational sophomore Jaquan Johnson who can do it all on both sides of the ball.  He will be recruited nationally in a few years.

Thursday: Miami (Fla.) Central vs. Carol City (Fla.) at 7 p.m.
The state's most talented district(6A-12) will be on the line when Central takes the field with Carol City.  Central is loaded with D-1 prospects including RB Joseph Yearby (FSU), RB Dalvin Cooke (Clemson), S Ahmad Thomas, OL Trevor Darling (Miami), LB Marqez Hodge (Syracuse), and WR Devontae Phillips.  The one position where the Rocket's are lacking is QB, that will not be an issue for Carol City as Akeem Jones is Dade County's best.  Junior WR Trayon Gray is establishing himself as one of South Florida's best for the next cycle.

John Garcia Jr. - Southeast Recruiting Analyst
Friday:  Dothan (Ala.) Northview at Foley (Ala.) at 7 p.m.
This highly-anticipated matchup will showcase two of Alabama's best defenders. Visiting Northview is led by Florida State commitment Marquez White, who is electric with the ball in his hands. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound White projects best at defensive back, where he also fits the mold that Nick Saban and company covet at Alabama. The Crimson Tide offered after he pledged to FSU, and White has been back-and-fourth ever since. Foley's defense is led by Alabama defensive tackle commit Darius Paige. The three-star began his prep career in Florida but transferred to Foley for his final campaign. The best offensive player on the field Friday night may be underclassmen Demarcus Bingham, Foley's 6-foot-3, 210-pound junior wide receiver that often draws early comparisons to former Foley great and current Atlanta Falcon Julio Jones. Bingham is still looking for his first offer, but several SEC schools including Alabama, Auburn and LSU are showing plenty of interest his way.

Steve Robertson - Southeast Recruiting Analyst
Friday: Stringer (Miss.) at Bogue Chitto (Miss.) at 7 p.m.
The Red Devils of Stringer enter the game at 7-1 and 6-0 in district. SHS is lead by junior standout quarterback Tevin Moore who has accounted for over 1,500 offensive yards and 28 touchdowns. Bogue Chitto will counter with Mississippi State commitment Brandon Wells who leads a defensive that has only yielded 45 points in eight games. The Bobcats are currently 8-0 and ranked #1 in the state in Mississippi's 1A classificiation.

Yancy Porter - Mississippi Scout
Friday: Itawamba AHS (Miss.) at Amory (Miss.) at 7:00 p.m.
This is a battle of a key Region 1-4A showdown between 8-0 Itawamba AHS and 7-1 Amory. Itawamba AHS is led by 4-Star athlete Ashton Shumpert.  He missed the first three games of the season but has already amassed 988 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns in five games of action.  The 6’ 2”, 220-pound two-way player has Georgia, Ole Miss, and MSU out in front. Amory’s sophomore quarterback Jon David Ross has thrown for 1, 967 yards/19 TD’s and many of those yards have come from their star receiver Dario Robinson.  Last season the 5’ 10” receiver broke a state record in receiving yards in a game with 143 catches for 2, 193 yards. Dario has been offered by Illinois.

Amy Campbell - Florida Recruiting Reporter
Friday: Busnell (Fla.) South Sumter at Interlachen (Fla.) at 7:30 p.m.
Undefeated South Sumter looks to continue their perfect record as they travel to face a struggling 1-5 Interlachen team. The star of South Sumter is senior safety Keanu Neal, a 6-foot, 205-pound Florida commitment and FOX Sports NEXT four-star. FOX Sports NEXT Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons describes Neal as "a very strong tackler and a hard hitting safety. He plays some in and out of the box, but he is best when attacking the football at full speed." There's been little buzz about the Gator commitment's recruitment so all signs point to him being solid to Florida.

Kristen Ledlow - Southeast Field Reporter
Friday: Spalding High School (GA) at Jonesboro High School (GA) at 7 p.m.
Jonesboro has two future SEC cornerbacks on the roster Cameron Sutton and Taurean Ferguson. Sutton, at six-foot and 175 pounds, is currently committed to the University of Tennessee. The three-star locked down offers from major college programs across the southeast before making his verbal commitment at the start of his senior season in August. Ferguson's biggest college offer came from Vanderbilt in the spring before the senior committed at the end of July. Both Jonesboro and Spalding are said to boast promising talent in the classes of 2014 and 2015 as well.

Allen Trieu - National Recruiting Analyst
Friday: Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech at University of Detroit (Mich.) Jesuit at 4 p.m.
Cass Tech has a ton of talent. Recent Michigan decommit David Dawson is joined on the offensive line by Michigan State commit Dennis Finley. The secondary features Michigan commit Jourdan Lewis, Eastern Michigan commit Daquan Pace and four-star junior Damon Webb at the corners with Toledo commit Dejuan Rogers and Iowa commit Delano Hill at safety. Kenton Gibbs, a one time Illinois commit with multiple BCS offers is at defensive tackle, and juniors Deon Drake, a Michigan State commit, William White and Gary Hosey all play linebacker as well as in the offensive backfield. Quarterback Jayru Campbell, running back Mike Weber, and defensive linemen Joshua Alabi and Keith Jones lead a sophomore class that is full of talent as well.

Friday: Ann Arbor (Mich.) Huron at Westland (Mich.) John Glenn at 7 p.m.
John Glenn features senior wide receiver Da'Mario Jones, a big, fast wide receiver who is rising up boards and may end up with late BCS offers.

Dave Berk - Ohio Recruiting Analyst
Thursday: Dayton (Ohio) Christian at Dayton (Ohio) Belmont at 7:00 p.m.
Our eyes will be glued on athlete Heath Harding (5-foot-10, 170-pounds) who was one of the biggest surprises of the summer earning offers from several Mid-American Conference programs mostly as a cornerback.  Harding is also getting interest as a running back or slot receiver using his great speed (4.33/4.38 Ohio State Camp) and has posted some eye-popping stats on the season.

Friday: West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West at Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain at 7:30 p.m.
A battle of unbeatens (8-0) will help decided who wins a Greater Miami Conference championship and possible top billing heading into the Ohio Division One Region Four playoffs.  Both teams have talent and we’ll focus on two players from Lakota West in junior running back Mikel Horton (6-foot-1, 225-pounds) and senior offensive lineman Kyle Meadows (6-6, 275) who is still undecided at this time.  Colerain will look to senior quarterback L.A. Ramsby and running back Chris Davis to run behind University of Cincinnati offensive line pledge Dylan Wiesman (6-4,295).  This game will also give junior linebacker Tegray Scales (6-1, 215) a chance to show off the skills that earned him an early three-star ranking.

Simone Scott - Midwest Recruiting Reporter
Friday: Grove City (Ohio) at Lancaster (Ohio) at 7:30 p.m.
Lancaster is home to highly touted offensive tackle Kyle Trout. The junior holds offers from Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio and Toledo and has had lots of contact with Ohio State.  Another prospect to watch is senior tight end Ryan Thomas. Thomas has Division II offers and is hoping for more. Grove City will be led by quarterback Cameron Meece and his top target, wide receiver Devonta Thomas..

Friday: Joliet West (Ill.) vs Lincoln-Way East (Ill.) at 7:30 p.m.
Lincoln-Way East takes on Joliet West in hopes to continue rolling after starting off 8-0 on the season.

Lincoln-Way East is highlighted by 2013 Northern Illinois quarterback commit Tommy Fuessel and up and coming wide receiver Justin Corbett.

Greg Powers - National Recruiting Analyst
Friday: Lake Highlands (Texas) at Dallas (Texas) Jesuit at 7:30 p.m.
A nice in-district battle between schools vying for playoff positioning. Lake Highlands is headlined by Scout.com Top 100 offensive lineman Kent Perkins, who is committed to play at Texas. On the other side of the ball is another UT commit in wide receiver Jake Oliver, who has put up huge numbers in the Dallas Jesuit offense. Leading the defense for Jesuit is middle linebacker recruit Jordan Mastrogiavanni, who has already made a commitment to play at Oklahoma. Texas A&M commit J.J. Gustafson is an anchor along the offensive line and is a Scout300 member.

Ahmard Vital - Midlands Recruiting Analyst
Friday: Deer Park (Texas) at La Porte (Texas) at 7 p.m.
Here lies a match up that gain plenty of traction through the years and draws lots of people due to geography. On the recruiting side of things, one of the state’s best will be on the La Porte defense with 2014 outside linebacker Hoza Scott, a player who received the highest honor of five stars a few weeks ago. LSU, Texas A&M and Alabama are just a few programs looking to sign him. On the offense, La Porte has three-star running back Keith Whitely, who has close to 10 offers including San Jose State, UTEP and UNLV, will look to make some moves. Helping Whitely do this is massive offensive lineman Maurice Morris, a Division I guy in the trenches with offers from Colorado State and Navy to name a few.

Brandon Huffman - National Recruiting Analyst
Thursday: Tumwater (Wash.) vs. Lacey (Wash.) River Ridge at 7:00 p.m.
Tumwater comes in at 6-1, and ranked #5 in the state in 2A, and they're led by Washington commitment Jaimie Bryant, who plays defensive tackle for the Thunderbirds, coached by legendary coach Sid Otton.

Friday: Beaverton (Ore.) Aloha at Portland (Ore.) Jesuit at 7:00 p.m.
In the most talent-laden matchup in the state this year, five BCS prospects in the 2013 class, and a slew of top 2014 prospects meet up in a Metro League matchup of the #3 and #4 teams in the state in Aloha and Jesuit respectively.  Aloha is paced by five-star running back Thomas Tyner, who's rushed for over 2,000 yards as a senior.  The U.S. Army All-American has had an eventful week, decommitting from Oregon on Tuesday but then recommitting on Thursday.  Aloha also features four-star offensive lineman Brayden Kearsley, who's committed to BYU, but is planning to visit a few schools officially.  Tight end Bryson Sullivan is also expected to see his first action of the year after battling a knee injury.  Junior Maurice McSwain is the Warriors' top underclassmen and anchors Aloha's secondary.  Jesuit features the top offensive line in the Northwest, with three BCS linemen on it, including Oregon verbal Doug Brenner, Washington commit Andrew Kirkland and undecided Max Rich, who's favoring Washington State.  Safety A.J. Glass has some Ivy League offers and 2014 jumbo athletes Henry Mondeaux and Christian Martinek are underclassmen of note.

Greg Biggins - National Recruiting Analyst
Friday: San Diego (Calif.) Lincoln at San Diego (Calif.) Scripps Ranch at 6:30 p.m.
You won't find many players anywhere in the region more athletically gifted than the Robinson twins, Tyrell and Tyree. The two Lincoln standouts never leave the field and could play on either side of the ball for Oregon. Tyrell projects best as a linebacker but he's a very talented receiver as well. Tyree will likely wind up in the secondary playing safety but he's also a talented pass catcher. Another intriguing player to watch for Lincoln will be defensive end Fred Melifonwu. The defensive end is all of 6-5, 220 pounds and his recruitment could take off with a big senior season.

Saturday: La Jolla (Calif.) Country Day at Solana Beach (Calif.) Santa Fe Christian at 1:00 p.m.
Country Day is led by massive offensive lineman Jordan Poland. At 6-8, 330 pounds, Poland is one of the biggest lineman in the region and is currently rated the No. 2 overall prospect in the West Coast junior class. He gave an early commitment to USC and it will be good to see how well the big man can move to go along with his mammoth frame. Another talented offensive lineman for La Jolla is Ziad Damanhoury. San Diego State has offered Damanhoury, who's having a solid season on both sides of the line.

Los Alamitos brings a 5-2 record to Fountain Valley, as head coach John Barnes looks to get win No. 301.

Linebacker Sean Finley (6'4/220) of Fountain Valley also has offers from Arizona and Nevada.

http://www.foxsportswest.com/pages/prepzone
Valencia is making its second appearance on the Prepzone having blown out Santa Monica in Week 4. Canyon also returns after having tied Steele Canyon 49-49 on Prepzone (archive) in one of craziest games we've had all season. Valencia's top prospect is linebacker Gabe Perez (6'5/215) who is leaning towards Boise State. Canyon's top prospect is receiver Drew Wolitarsky, who recently set the state record for receiving yards and has his sights set on Steve Smith's record of total receptions.

http://www.foxsportswest.com/pages/prepzone
Carter returns to the Prepzone after a hard-fought 30-28 win last week over rival Rialto (archive). Carter found itself down 14-0 on the road before the even touched the ball. Carter has the most highly recruited prospect in the game in UCLA commitment Kenneth Clark (6'2/285). Clark looked heavier than his listed 285 and wasn't much of a factor last week.

Friday: Menifee (Calif.) Paloma Valley at Romoland (Calif.) Heritage at 7 p.m.
http://www.foxsportswest.com/pages/prepzone
While not chock full of college prospects, Paloma Valley brings a 6-1 record to Heritage behind a balanced attack led by junior quarterback Brent Boehm (5'11/200) who has thrown for 17 touchdowns and senior running back Davis Solis (5'10/180). Solis has already cracked the 1000 yard mark and averages better than 10 yards per carry. Heritage will lean heavily on Washington State commitment Jamal Morrow (5'8/180) at running back.

Thursday: Avondale (Ariz.) Westview at Glendale (Ariz.) Mountain Ridge at 7:00 p.m.
Two of the state's most under-rated backs go head to head. Mountain Ridge's Treshawn Favors is as quick as a cat and dangerous with the ball in his hands. Has a half dozen FCS offers but is having a good enough season to warrant FBS attention. Westview's Seivion Morris surprisingly has not been offered yet but could end up with a late offer, similar to former Knight Jordan Champion that inked with North Dakota State.

Friday: Scottsdale (Ariz.) Desert Mountain @ Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle at 7:00 p.m.
Two totally different styles of football will face off in a battle of once-beatens. Desert Mountain is led by the state's best junior duo of QB Kyle Allen and WR Mark Andrews. Both have double digit offers and have hooked up for over 1,000 yards and 15 TDs in the air. Pinnacle has a strong rushing attack led by Billy Nichols, Carson Purtell and Jack Kness. The 6 foot 5 Nichols is extremely athletic and holds an offer from Utah.

Kevin Carden, West Recruiting Analyst
Thursday: Gardena (Calif.) Serra at La Canada (Calif.) St. Francis at 7 p.m.
Gardena Serra has several talented prospects on the roster, most of which are in the 2014 class. Junior cornerback Adoree Jackson has elite talent and will be one of the top overall players in California next season. Also on the defensive side of the ball is 2014 talented linebacker Dwight Williams. When Serra has the ball, dual-threat quarterback Jalen Greene will supply the big plays with his arm and legs. Greene has shown great improvement in the passing game this season and has a pair of solid wide receivers in Jordan Lasley and Gregory Webb.

Friday: Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco at Santa Ana (Calif) Mater Dei at 7 p.m.
The Mater Dei Monarchs are led by one of the top two-way players on the West Coast in DE/TE Thomas Duarte. The 6-4 225 athlete is having a stellar senior season and has offers from Notre Dame, Oregon and UCLA among others. Mater Dei’s top underclassman is 2014 defensive back Jonathan Lockett, who has shown great athleticism and cover skills at cornerback. St. John Bosco has a highly sought after 2014 cornerback of their own in Jaleel Wadood. Waddod already holds offers from Arizona State and Oregon State and will likely have double digit offers by this time next year. And offensive lineman Nico Falah, a USC verbal commit, is arguably the top offensive lineman in Southern California.

Inna Lazarev, West Field Reporter
Friday: Chandler (Ariz.) Basha at Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton at 7 p.m.
One of the best high school programs in the state, Hamilton, features an array of talent. Four-star cornerback Cole Luke, who has been playing on both sides of the ball, is an exciting athlete to watch. Luke, who is down to a top three of Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Texas, is set to make his college decision towards the end of the month. On the offensive line, pay attention to offensive guards Patrick Joseph (Army commit) and Devin Finai, as well as 2014 USC offensive tackle commit, Casey Tucker. Junior defensive end, Qualen Cunningham, has already collected offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Nebraska, Texas A&M, and Washington. Additional players to keep an eye on for Hamilton are wide receiver Frankie Felix (North Dakota offer), linebacker Luke Parrish, quarterback Allen Thigpen, running back Kevin Walters, and defensive tackle Arik Burns, along with juniors, wide receiver Israel Simpson, safeties Josiah Pola and Juwan Jones (San Diego State offer), and linebacker Santana Sterling. On the opposing sideline, Basha features one of Arizona's top wide receivers, in Nate Phillips, who committed to Arizona at the beginning of the summer. 6-foot, 190-pound linebacker Zach Denney is another one to watch, as well as junior running back Rajhan Meriwether, whose first offer came from Northern Arizona.

Thursday: Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde vs. Riverside (Calif.) JW North at Riverside Community College at 7 p.m.
Rancho Verde's offense features 4-star receiver Demorea Stringfellow, a Washington commit who gave his verbal to the Huskies in June. Though the 6-foot-3, 215-pound prospect unofficially visited UCLA and will officially visit Nebraska on the 27th, when the Huskers host Michigan, Stringfellow recently  However, Stringfellow recently reiterated the strength of his commitment. Offensive lineman Poasi Moala is another key playmaker for the Mustangs; the 6-foot-5, 265-pound tackle was once a Washington commit, but decided to switch to UCLA after unofficially visiting campus. JW North's top prospect is Ohio State commit Marcus Baugh, Scout's #4 ranked tight end. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound player committed to the Buckeyes in April and spent a few days on campus in August. Baugh recently confirmed that his commitment is solid and does not plan to take any other official visits. 

Friday: Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw vs. Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey at Rancho Cienega Park at 7 p.m.
Crenshaw's team is led by athlete Mossi Johnson, a 3-star prospect. The 6-foot, 175-pound Johnson picked up an offer from UCLA in late September and committed to the Bruins a week later. Johnson was recruited by the staff to potentially play on both sides of the ball at receiver and safety. Cornerback Max Lyons (5-9, 170) is a prospect to watch, as he's receiving interest from San Jose State, San Diego State, and Arizona State. Lyons transferred to Crenshaw from Dorsey, so he'll be up against his former teammates. Dorsey's offense is led by quarterback Reginald Bell (6-2, 180), who committed to Tulane in June and is solid in his decision to play for the Green Wave. Receiver Delvon Hardaway (6-2, 180) is an under-the-radar prospect who has emerged this season, holding offers from San Jose State and Colorado. Hardaway is also hearing from Colorado State, Oregon, Nevada, and Washington State.  The Dons are stacked in their secondary with a defensive back unit made up of Division-1 prospects Daquawn Brown and Billy Vaughn Jr. (a San Diego State commit) at cornerback and Jayme Otomewo at safety. Brown (6-0, 170) holds a large number of offers and recently said he wants to take visits to Washington, Arizona State, and UCLA. Brown and Otomewo (6-2, 190) consider themselves a "packaged deal," as they are hoping to play college ball together next fall. Both prospects have been offered by Arizona State, Hawaii, and San Jose State. Brown's other offers include Boise State, UCLA, Washington, California, and Washington State, while Otomewo has also picked up offers from Colorado and Fresno State. Players to watch include running back and linebacker Marquise Harris, who has been receiving attention from a few West Coast programs, and 2014 prospect David Williams, who plays offense, defense, and special teams for the Dons. Williams is hearing from the likes of UCLA, Washington, Washington State, Ohio, California, and UTEP, and is definitely an underclassman to keep an eye on.
