With the December signing period sneaking up on us, many uncommitted prospects will be choosing schools in the coming months. Today, takes a look at four undecided players in the recruiting hotbed of Florida and attempts to predict where they may land.


PREDICTIONS: Midwest | Southeast

This one could be over sooner rather than later, as Wright appears to be nearing a decision. As things stand now, that decision seems likely to be Florida. The four-star running back took an official visit to Gainesville in late August and has been back on campus since. Wright missed the majority of his junior season due to injury, so his recruitment isn’t as crowded as it once was. That said, the Gators may be getting a steal if they are, as expected, able to land the versatile Wright in the near future.

Prediction: Florida


Once seen as a backup option for LSU, Cain now sits atop the Tigers’ recruiting board. The four-star tailback is originally from Louisiana and grew up watching the Tigers. He’s not shy about expressing his desire to play for LSU should they have a decent season this fall. Cain says he plans to observe the Tigers’ first five games of the season before making a final decision, but admits that LSU is the heavy favorite at this juncture. Penn State is still a major player and could land Cain if things go south for the Tigers this fall.

Prediction: LSU


Sanders is a bit of a wildcard. He has a brother currently at Florida, making the Gators a serious contender. That said, it seems as though Sanders is most likely to end up at Alabama, the school to which he was once committed. Prospects don’t often recommit after backing off a pledge, but this may be one of the few exceptions to this rule. It wouldn’t be wise to rule UF out completely, but beating out the Tide is going to be a tall task. Official visits could change things, but Nick Saban has to feel pretty good about his standing with the five-star running back.

Prediction: Alabama


It’s gotten to the point where people are wondering what the four-star running back is waiting for. Miami has been seen as McIntosh’s leader for quite some time, and it’s starting to seem as though it’s a matter of “when” and not “if.” Teams such as Oklahoma are also involved, but the star running back shunning the in-state school would shock everyone. There’s no telling when McIntosh’s commitment will come, but his destination doesn’t seem to be in much doubt.

Prediction: Miami
