Milton has seen his offer list grow exponentially in recent weeks. His ACC suitors include Miami, Louisville and Boston College but all will be attempting to wrestle him away from Florida. Things could get mighty interesting should Florida State offer Milton a scholarship, which the Seminoles may do in the near future. Milton is a massive prospect, whose upside is off the charts because of his size and incredibly strong arm. He’s a bit of a risk but the reward for taking him could be massive. – Rob Cassidy, Florida recruiting analyst

The H.D. Woodson program in the nation’s capital has a long history of churning out big-time prospects. The 2018 class there is loaded and Boykin is one of the top players in the region. He took a visit to Clemson a few weeks ago and enjoyed his time there but his newest offers from Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Missouri also kept him fresh in many schools' minds. Maryland, Pittsburgh, North Carolina, Rutgers, Virginia and many other schools added their names to his offer sheet over the past couple of weeks. He has visited West Virginia, Maryland, Penn State, Temple and Virginia, and there will be many more to come. – Adam Friedman, Mid-Atlantic recruiting analyst

Alaimo made his name in baseball at St. Joe's Regional in northern New Jersey, but he has really come on as a football prospect. He has about 20 offers already and recently took a visit to Miami. He expects to visit N.C. State later this month and Florida State during the summer. Rutgers is doing a good job with the in-state prospect and it's important for the Scarlet Knights to recruit the local powerhouse programs effectively. Look for Alaimo to have a lengthy recruiting process before making any decisions. – Friedman

McCrae’s most recent ACC offer arrived from N.C. State, but he’s welcoming opportunities from all directions lately. Wake Forest recently made things official. Tennessee and Arkansas represent the SEC on his offer list, but his momentum shows no signs of slowing. Schools like McCrae’s length and he may be in for a big spring with a solid camp performance or two in the month ahead. – Cassidy

Western Pennsylvania has come back in a big way and Kradel is one of the top prospects in that area this cycle. He has a long offer sheet which includes Virginia, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Wake Forest, Maryland, West Virginia and many others. West Virginia, N.C. State and Wake Forest are the most recent schools to host Kradel and the Mountaineers are near the top of his list along with Pittsburgh and N.C. State. All three of those schools will likely be on Kradel’s short list. Look for him to visit Ohio State, Boston College, Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Maryland over the next couple months. – Friedman
