Each weekday between now and Signing Day, we'll take a look at the latest chatter surrounding the top recruits, getting you ready for the big day. We start today with a look at the top uncommitted prospects outside the top 100.
No. 161 -- Keith Bryant, DT
Ranking: (No. 18 overall DT)
The latest: A top 20 defensive tackle nationally, Bryant -- who originally committed to Miami -- is on the radar of many top schools. He has been making visits to his favorites, with South Carolina due up this weekend and another visit planned ahead of Signing Day. He plans to wait until then to announce his commitment.
No. 159 -- Jaynard Bostwick, DT
Ranking: (No. 17 overall DT)
Interested in: Alabama, Florida, Miami (FL)
The latest: It's widely expected to be an all-Florida battle for the Florida prospect's services. Bostwick is debating Miami and Florida but also paid a recent visit to Alabama that left him impressed enough to make things interesting ahead of Signing Day. He still has a visit planned to both other schools in his final three, as well.

No. 152 -- Shelton Gibson, WR
Ranking: (No. 19 overall WR)
Commitment: West Virginia
Interested in: West Virginia, Tennessee
The latest: Gibson just made his commitment to West Virginia on Wednesday, but Tennessee is still pushing hard and could land the wide receiver recruit before all is said and done. Of all the recruits on this list, his status seems to be the most solid.
No. 140 -- Austin Golson, OT
Ranking: (No. 10 overall OT)
Commitment: Florida State (soft verbal)
The latest: Golson committed to the Seminoles way back in April 2011 before stating earlier this year that he'd look around at other options. He took a recent trip to Alabama that didn't go particularly well. Auburn is also making a push for the Alabama native, as is Ole Miss. He visited the Rebels this weekend and said the campus had an "awesome atmosphere."
No. 132 -- Tyree Robinson, WR
Ranking: (No. 17 overall WR)
Commitment: Oregon (soft verbal)
The latest: You can probably guess the reason to doubt the Oregon commitment -- Chip Kelly's departure as head coach. Where will he end up? We don't know, but wherever it is, Tyree will be with his twin brother Tyrell, who was also an Oregon commit before Kelly left and is a top 100 recruit in Scout's rankings. They've been classified as "very open" to the possibility of another school.
No. 125 -- Torrodney Prevot, DE
Ranking: (No. 13 overall DE)
Commitment: USC (soft verbal)
The latest: Prevot committed to USC in July but has in recent weeks expressed a desire to explore options and make sure he wants to stick with the Trojans. Enter Notre Dame, Oregon, and Texas A&M. He visited Oregon this past weekend and has visits set up to see both the Irish and Aggies as well.
More coverage: Go inside for more on Prevot, including a video interview from the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
No. 122 -- Kylie Fitts, DE
Ranking: (No. 12 overall DE)
The latest: A one-time USC commit, Fitts is now exploring his options. He has been to USC, Washington and UCLA already with a trip to Notre Dame on the horizon. He'll go to South Bend with a couple other former Trojan commits. The head-coaching change at Oregon, he said, might change his mind on Eugene. Fitts is coming off a wrist injury this season that required surgery.
No. 117 -- Denver Kirkland, OG
Ranking: (No. 5 overall OG)
Interested in: Ole Miss, Florida State, South Florida, Miami (FL)
The latest: Kirkland has been visiting his finalists this month -- he went to South Florida on Jan. 11 and Miami on Jan. 18, having already visited the others. His decision could come down to a teammate. Matthew Thomas, a top recruit nationally, is considering some of the same schools and Kirkland has indicated the two could opt to go to the same college.
No. 114 -- Devon Allen, WR
Ranking: (No. 16 overall WR)
The latest: Last week, Allen said the five schools above were still in the mix. Allen is a standout track athlete as well, and Florida State and Oregon's scholarship offers are for that sport only. He has visited all his finalists except for Arkansas, which is coming up on Feb. 1.
No. 103 -- Marquez North, WR
Ranking: (No. 12 overall WR)
Interested in: Clemson, North Carolina, Tennessee
The latest: North says he feels comfortable picking between those three schools. He paid a visit to Chapel Hill this past weekend to check out the Tar Heels and has also been both to Clemson and Tennessee. North says it'll be a Signing Day decision for him.
UPDATE (Jan. 23): Prospect No. 101, Jason Hatcher, has since de-committed from USC. Kentucky, Florida and Louisville are among the schools in the mix. For more, go here.
