Ricky Seals-Jones

No. 10 -- Ricky Seals-Jones, WR

Ranking: (No. 1 overall WR)

Commitment: Texas A&M

The latest: Seals-Jones committed to Texas in February before backing off that pledge and June. He ultimately chose rival Texas A&M in December and appears 100 percent solid to the Aggies.

In his words: "(The recruiting process) was crazy. You get a lot of phone calls. All the coaches call you, or they shoot you a text, Twitter or Facebook and they come to the school and get you out of class. I don't mind that. It's a lot of hassle, but it's fun at the same time." -- Dec. 10

Eddie Vanderdoes

No. 9 -- Eddie Vanderdoes, DT

Ranking: (No. 2 overall DT)

Commitment: None

Interested in: UCLA, Notre Dame, USC, Alabama, Washington

The latest: A longtime USC commit, Vanderdoes backed out in December and now has shut the media out of the process. He has visited the schools above and will announce his final decision on Signing Day.

In his words: "Right now, it’s all relatively even. I’ll have a better idea after the last two visits (to Notre Dame and Alabama), but I don’t want to announce a leader because it’s not fair to the other schools when I haven’t been on campus yet. I haven’t seen those two so I won’t know a leader until the very end." -- Jan. 20

Max Browne

No. 8 -- Max Browne, QB

Ranking: (No. 1 overall QB)

Commitment: USC

The latest: Unlike many others in the Trojans' 2013 class, Browne maintains he is a solid commit to USC.

In his words: "I came to Skyline to continue legacy of great quarterbacks, and do the same at USC. USC is the best combination of football and academics in the country." -- April 4

Laremy Tunsil

No. 7 -- Laremy Tunsil, OT

Ranking: (No. 1 overall OT)

Commitment: None

Interested in: Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss

The latest: Another major uncommitted prospect, Tunsil is set to make his decision known early on Signing Day, choosing between the three SEC schools listed above.

In his words: "It has been a very tough process for me. I have had many talks with my mom, I have prayed to God, and it has been tough for me to make this decision. I know I have to pick one school and after looking at everything, I am ready to now."

More coverage: Go inside for an update on Tunsil's recruitment and much more.


Derrick Green

No. 6 -- Derrick Green, RB

Ranking: (No. 1 overall RB)

Commitment: Michigan

The latest: As you can tell from the hat at right, Green has picked the Wolverines and says he's solid.

In his words: "Every time I’ve been to Michigan it felt like home, and that’s just the place I want to be. That’s where my heart is telling me to be, (where) God (is telling me to be). I sat down with my parents to talk about it and Michigan is just the place for me." -- Jan. 26

More coverage: Go inside for a three-part video series on Green and much more.


A'Shawn Robinson

No. 5 -- A'Shawn Robinson, DT

Ranking: (No. 1 overall DT)

Commitment: None

Interested in: Alabama, Florida State, Texas, USC

The latest: Rumors are circling that the longtime Texas commit has other plans, possibly joining forces with Nick Saban in Alabama. He had been classified a soft verbal with Texas for quite some time.

In his words: "I'm just comparing other schools to Texas to make sure I'm making the right decision. I didn't get a chance to take my visits before I committed because of family issues, so just taking them now. ... They're all good places, good football programs, good schools. But I'm committed to Texas." -- Dec. 31

More coverage: Go inside for a full report on the Alabama situation and much more.


Su'a Cravens

No. 4 -- Su'a Cravens, S

Ranking: (No. 1 overall S)

Commitment: USC

The latest: Currently enrolled at USC, Cravens will be suiting up for the Trojans in the fall. Here's one they don't have to worry about flipping.

In his words: "I always wanted to be a Trojan growing up. That was my dream school. USC has everything I could want in a program." -- June 7

More coverage: Go inside for a feature about Cravens from the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.


Jaylon Smith

No. 3 -- Jaylon Smith, LB

Ranking: (No. 1 overall OLB)

Commitment: Notre Dame

The latest: Smith committed to Notre Dame in the summer and has remained solid, with no indication of a flip coming.

In his words: "Obviously the opportunity is there (at Notre Dame) to play right away, but it's a great education. It's close to home, and you're not going to play football forever. So you've got to make a 40-year decision rather than a four-year decision." -- Jan. 1

More coverage: Go inside for a full profile on Smith and much more.


Reuben Foster

No. 2 -- Reuben Foster, LB

Ranking: (No. 1 overall MLB)

Commitment: Alabama

The latest: Well, we'll see. Foster committed to Alabama live on FOX Sports South on Monday, but he looked less than 100 percent sure of himself in doing so. The Tide are certainly the favorites at this point, but he has flipped twice before. Could he do it one more time?

In his words: "I was young (when I first committed to Alabama), I was a pup. I thought when I de-committed that I was too young when I (originally) committed, but I realized I wasn’t. I grew up liking ‘Bama, I grew up being a ‘Bama fan." -- Feb. 4

More coverage: Go inside for the full story on his commitment to Alabama and much more.


Robert Nkemdiche

No. 1 -- Robert Nkemdiche, DE

Ranking: (No. 1 overall DE)

Commitment: None

Interested in: Ole Miss, Florida, LSU

The latest: All signs point to Nkemdiche picking Ole Miss, where his brother is already a player. The nation's most coveted prospect is set to announce around 7:30 a.m. ET on Signing Day.

In his words: "Having my brother (Denzel Nkemdiche) at Ole Miss has been good and bad because of everything that comes with that. I like Ole Miss and I'd love to play with him there, but I am going to make my own decision. It has been a little stressful for me, but I am very blessed to be where I am. I will be happy when I make my decision." -- Jan. 3

More coverage: Go inside for video highlights from Nkemdiche's senior season and much more.
