Sunday: Who should be number 1?
Monday: Five-star countdown
Tuesday: Rivals250 revealed
Wednesday: Attack position ranking revealed
Thursday: Defense position rank revealed
Friday: State rankings revealed
6. LB TJ Capers
Lawyer’s Take it: Georgia Definitely a school to follow TJ Capers and USC made him curious, but Miami should be considered as one of the top teams for many reasons. Capers said Miami “feels like family” in a recent interview, adding he enjoys the development of players under the coach. Mario Cristobalwho also attended Miami Columbus like five-star quarterback.
7. WR Ryan Wingo
Lawyer’s Take it: Notre Dame could be a school to follow Ryan Wingo but it feels like the Irish are not a padlock and things can still go in many directions. Lots of Big Ten groups including Michigan and others are working hard. Missouri and other Southeast teams may also appear more.
8. QB Jadyn Davis
Lawyer’s Take it: Michigan must like its place with Charlotte (NC) prominence on Providence Day as coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff did Jadyn Davis a priority – especially Ohio State landed Dylan Raiola and Notre Dame get a commit from CJ Carrformer Michigan coach Lloyd Carrgrandson of.
Davis is also expected in North Carolina this weekend. Clemson is in the mix and so are the others, but the Wolverines are in good condition.
9. WR Micah Hudson
Lawyer’s Take it: There are many teams involved but this could lead to a decision between Texas A&M and Ohio State. The Aggies were really pushing early for Temple’s Belton Lake (Texas) and that’s going to be important. But Micah Hudson drew comparisons previously as recipients of the Ohio State star Garrett Wilsonalso from Texas, so it will be something to see.
Texas Technology, Tennessee, Oregon and others involved.
10. WR Joshisa Trader
Lawyer’s Take it: Ohio State looks good early on for Joshisa TraderWho can join? Jeremiah Smith not only in Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna but also in college in Columbus, as the Buckeyes recruited him the hard way. Trader also plays on the same South Florida Express team.
But Miami will fight to the end here with the schools in the state and the Southeast. If Trader had to choose today, Ohio State would be the expected choice but with time Miami and others could make this interesting.
11. ATH Mike Matthews
Lawyer’s Take it: Clemson, Georgia, Alabama and other Southeast schools will remain seriously in the mix for Mike Matthews and a lot of hits can come in this season but absolutely don’t count Notre Dame for Lilburn (Ga.) Parkview also stands out. The new Irish coaching staff and everything on offer at South Bend are outstanding.
The Tigers might have a slight lead, especially since they’re closer to home, but it’s going to be an intense battle with lots of thrills right now.
12. DT Justin Scott
Lawyer’s Take it: Notre Dame is considered a leader for Justin Scott and he had an excellent visit to South Bend at the end of July. But a bunch of Big Ten schools – Wisconsin, Michigan and others – will also join when Chicago St. Ignatius conducts recruitment.
August is as exciting as Miami and LSU offered. Many national shows have already passed with offers in July, so things seem to be opening up for him.
