Will visit: Alabama (Jan. 14), Florida (Jan. 17)
Where do things stand now: "I am open with these schools. I am not sure on the fifth visit and I am still looking at a few schools for that last one," Bray said. "I am open and it will come down to all the visits."

Jadeveon Clowney (Rock Hill, S.C./South Pointe)

Will visit: Alabama (Jan. 7) and Georgia (Jan. 21)
Where do things stand now: One day it's Georgia, the next it's Alabama. That's how things have been for Crowell, as it's been a back-and-forth battle between the Dawgs and Tide. That's how things will likely remain for the nation's top back.

Xzavier Dickson (Griffin, Ga./Griffin)

Considering: Florida, Miami and Ohio State
Has visited: Ohio State (Sept. 24)

Cyrus Hobbi (Scottsdale, Ariz./Saguaro)
Ht.: 6-4 | Wt.: 285 | ESPNU 150: 33 | OG rank: 1 | Stars: 4
Considering: Arizona State, UCLA and USC

Will visit: USC (Jan. 14) and UCLA (Jan. 21)
Where do things stand now: "It's going to come down to those trips. I need to get a feel for those schools," Hobbi said. "It's going to be one of those three -- ASU, USC or UCLA. I can't say that I have a leader right now."

Savon Huggins (Jersey City, N.J./Saint Peter's)
Ht.: 5-11 | Wt.: 195 | ESPNU 150: 34 | RB rank: 5 | Stars: 4

Marcus Jackson (Vero Beach, Fla., Vero Beach)
Ht.: 6-2 | Wt.: 295 | ESPNU 150: 87 | OG rank: 6 | Stars: 4
Considering: Miami, Michigan State and Tennessee
Has visited: Michigan State (Oct. 10), Tennessee (Nov. 12) and Miami (Dec. 17)
Will visit: Jackson has two official visits remaining in January, if he opts to use them and not graduate early.
Where do things stand now: You would have to think that if Jackson felt comfortable with new Miami coach Al Golden and his staff that chances are he would re-commit to the Hurricanes.

Darius Jennings (Baltimore, Md./Gilman School)
Ht.: 5-11 | Wt.: 175 | ESPNU 150: 98 | ATH rank: 14 | Stars: 4
Considering: Ohio State, Wake Forest and Virginia
Has visited: Virginia (Dec. 10) and Ohio State (Dec. 17)
Will visit: Wake Forest (Jan. 14)
Where do things stand now: Jennings says he's open among these three but one would think this is shaping up to be a battle between Ohio State and Virginia for now. It will be interesting to see if the coaching change will have a positive impact on Jennings with the Terrapins.

Cyrus Kouandjio (Hyattsville, Md./DeMatha Catholic)
Ht.: 6-7 | Wt.: 325 | ESPNU 150: 6 | OT rank: 2 | Stars: 5
Considering: Alabama, Iowa, Miami, New Mexico and USC
Has visited: Alabama (Dec. 3) and New Mexico (Dec. 10)
Will visit: Nothing else is lined up at this time.
Where do things stand now: One would think that Alabama is the team to beat here, especially with his older brother (Arie) inking with the Crimson Tide in February. Kouandijo loves Mike Locksley and New Mexico but that would be the upset of the decade if he ended up there. Let's see who this monster O-tackle visits in January.

Mo Latu (Gilbert, Ariz./Perry)
Ht.: 6-3 | Wt.: 305 | ESPNU 150: NR | C rank: 5 | Stars: 3
Considering: Arizona State, Oregon, Missouri and Fresno State
Has visited: Arizona State (Sept. 5) and Colorado State (Oct. 16)
Will visit: Latu will visit Oregon and Missouri next month for sure but he hasn't set up dates yet.
Where do things stand now: "Right now I would say that ASU and Oregon are tied and Missouri is right behind them," Latu said. "I know Oregon wants me up there for my last visit."

Marqise Lee (Gardena, Calif./Junipero Serra)
Ht.: 6-1 | Wt.: 190 | ESPNU 150: 96 | ATH rank: 13 | Stars: 4
Considering: Oregon and USC
Has visited: Oregon (Nov. 5)
Will visit: USC (Jan. 14)
Where do things stand now: This is another big battle and a tight race between Southern California and Oregon. Lee says he would like to leave the state and that news could bode well for the Ducks. UCLA also could sneak in a visit before it's all said and done.

Kevin McReynolds (Washington, D.C./Saint John's College)
Ht.: 6-2 | Wt.: 276 | ESPNU 150: NR | DT rank: 26 | Stars: 4
Considering: Oregon, South Carolina, Syracuse, UCLA
Has visited: UCLA (Dec. 10) and Syracuse (Dec. 17)
Will visit: Oregon (Jan. 14) and South Carolina (Jan. 28)
Where do things stand now: Don't be surprised if McReynolds lands out west or up north. He raved about both of his visits to UCLA and Syracuse. Of course, there's a coaching change nearby at Maryland and that could play into his decision.

Malcolm Mitchell (Valdosta, Ga./Valdosta)
Ht.: 6-0 | Wt.: 185 | ESPNU 150: 44 | WR rank: 6 | Stars: 4
Considering: Alabama and Georgia
Has visited: Georgia (Dec. 10)
Will visit: Alabama (Jan. 7)
Where do things stand now: It's Alabama and Georgia again for this two-way standout at receiver and safety. It appears that the Dawgs are the team to beat here.

Spencer Region (Cullman, Ala./Cullman)
Ht.: 6-5 | Wt.: 339 | ESPNU 150: 77 | OG rank: 4 | Stars: 4
Considering: Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Georgia, Florida, Louisville, Wisconsin
Has visited: Region did not visit any schools over the fall.
Will visit: LSU (Jan. 21) and Wisconsin (Jan. 28)
Where do things stand now: "I am real wide open at this time and plan on taking all five of my visits next month," Region said. "But at this time I have only scheduled those two."

Jay Rome (Valdosta, Ga./Valdosta)
Ht.: 6-5 | Wt.: 230 | ESPNU 150: 18 | TE rank: 2 | Stars: 4
Considering: Georgia, Tennessee, Clemson and Alabama
Has visited: Georgia (Dec. 10)
Will visit: Rome has not set up anything yet for the month of January.
Where do things stand now: According to Rome, Georgia and Tennessee are his two leaders. In the end, the Bulldogs will likely prove tough to beat.

Michael Thomas (Woodland Hills, Calif./Taft)
Ht.: 6-2 | Wt.: 180 | ESPNU 150: NR | WR rank: 117 | Stars: 3
Considering: Oregon State, Colorado, ASU, UCLA, USC, Michigan and Wisconsin
Has visited: Thomas has not yet made any official visits.
Will visit: Oregon State (Jan. 14). He also said he will visit Arizona State and Colorado. Where do things stand now: "Right now I am open. I know I will visit Oregon State, ASU and Colorado for sure," Thomas said. "I will likely visit UCLA and take a trip out east to Michigan or Wisconsin."

Greg Townsend Jr. (Beverly Hills, Calif./Beverly Hills)
Ht.: 6-3 | Wt.: 260 | ESPNU 150: 102 | DE rank: 1 | Stars: 4
Considering: USC and TCU
Has visited: TCU (Dec. 3)
Will visit: USC (Jan.14)
Where do things stand now: It's a two-horse race for one of the nation's finest defensive line prospects and this is no slam dunk for Southern California and Lane Kiffin. Townsend really liked his TCU visit earlier this fall. It's too close to call at this point.

Gabe Wright (Columbus, Ga./Carver)
Ht.: 6-3 | Wt.: 285 | ESPNU 150: 93 | DT rank: 6 | Stars: 4
Considering: Auburn, Alabama, Clemson and Tennessee
Has visited: Wright has not made any official visits yet.
Will visit: Alabama (Jan. 7), Tennessee (Jan. 14), Clemson (Jan. 21) and Auburn (Jan. 28)
Where do things stand now: It's anyone's guess as to which way Wright is leaning although some close to Wright say Clemson has the lead at this time. But honestly, you could make a case for all four.
