McKinnley Jackson

The situation: This is a tough call for multiple reasons. One, Jackson is still just a sophomore, but he is quickly becoming a national name. Two, he was committed to LSU not that long ago, but is there a new school that could be trending. At the same time, he could go back to the Tigers. Alabama had him on campus over the weekend and there seems to be some buzz around the Crimson Tide. He wants to check out Stanford, Texas A&M and some other schools too, and you can expect plenty of other SEC program to make a run at him.

The pick: Alabama

De'Monte Russell

The situation: Florida and Tennessee are trying to get Russell on their campus and he could add some new offers in the coming months, but odds are high at this time that he ends up staying in his home state. He grew up a big Mississippi State fan, but Ole Miss will not make it easy for the Bulldogs.

The pick: Mississippi State

Chester Kimbrough

The situation: Alabama and Georgia have recently come into the picture somewhat and those are two schools to watch, but he has built stronger relationships with other staffs to date. You have to keep an eye on Kansas with Tony Hull, a former high school coach in New Orleans. Missouri and Michigan are very much in this too, but Mississippi State is coming at him hard, is close to home and may be the front-runner at this stage.

The pick: Mississippi State

LeDarrius Cox

The situation: This race could still have a lot of twists and turns to it, depending on who offers moving forward, but where it stands today, Georgia is the favorite to land one of the top defensive linemen in Alabama. You have to keep an eye on Tennessee, he is visiting the Vols this weekend. Texas A&M recently offered too. Don’t be surprised if more schools jump on board and offer in the near future.

The pick: Georgia

Paul Tyson

The situation: Tyson’s recruitment has taken off over the last few months and he is evaluating many schools and taking a lot of visits. Kentucky offered first and he is high on the Wildcats. He is also interested in LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame and, of course, Alabama with his ties to that program being the great grandson of the great Bear Bryant. With that connection to Tuscaloosa, it is hard to see him going anywhere else.

The pick: Alabama
