The home round of the 2023 recruiting cycle is almost upon us but there aren’t many elite recruits still uncommitted. In fact, more than 200 players in Rivals250 have already been committed.
With teams around the country still trying to fill their rosters, here are five players from the East who could transfer their commitment to another team along the way.
There are other players on this list that are more likely to flip than Rogers but he is worth keeping an eye on. Rogers had a hard time making a choice to return in the summer but Ohio State fulfill his commitment despite the close relationships he must NC State and North Carolina.
Rogers has an older brother who plays for Tar Heels but the team that nearly made him commit was NC State. Lex Thomas, committed quarterback for NC State, was very close to Rogers and continued to recruit him for the Wolfpack. Rogers says he’s with Ohio State but crazy things can happen in the long run.
McLeod is a great addition to South Carolina and he is committed to its second highest line of defense. Gamecocks fought Georgia, Florida and Michigan for his commitment but has a team keeping an eye on him. If Georgia eventually refocuses efforts on McLeod, who knows what he will decide to do.
Sampson was one of the first players to commit State of FloridaClass of 2023 but he also spent a lot of time visiting other schools during the season. NC State is one of the biggest things to see here. Wolfpack has long targeted Sampson and brought him in for a few visits earlier this year.
Florida State coaches are keeping a close eye on Sampson, but it looks like there’s still a chance Sampson flips through at some point along the way.
Keys freely admits that there’s a chance he’s exposed. It was a strange situation mainly because of how honest he was. Keys announces a commitment date then chooses offers from Texas A&M and Auburn after that. He went ahead as planned and committed North Carolina a few days later.
Coaches UNC and Keys are on the same page when it comes to planning his visit. Keys will be making official visits to Texas A&M and Auburn this fall, so things can certainly change after those trips.
With Scott Frost With an era coming to an end on a mournful Sunday, Watson is a name worth keeping an eye on on the recruiting trail. He has had no contact with other coaches and has not visited any other schools since he committed. Nebraska in February.
Recruiting classes tend to fall apart after a change in coaching and quarterbacks are highly prized targets. It will be interesting to see which shows start trying to pull Watson away from Husker.
