1. Anthony Hill is a lock to Texas.
Harris’ take: FACT. This absolutely will not come again to chew me, proper? In all seriousness, five-star linebacker Anthony Hill has expressed his want to remain near dwelling for everything of his recruitment, and with Texas A&M seemingly out of the image following his decommitment earlier this week, it leaves the varsity that completed second the primary time round: Texas. The Longhorns will host Hill for a go to this weekend, and I might not be stunned if Hill is dedicated earlier than he heads again up Interstate 35 on Sunday morning. If he isn’t then that may permit packages comparable to USC, Alabama and Oklahoma to get again concerned forward of signing day. However I nonetheless see it being powerful for any of these packages to pluck him away from Texas.
Suchomel’s take: FACT. I am very near going with fiction as a result of – as a father of three youngsters myself – I understand how flippant they are often. I am at all times reluctant to name something a “lock” in recruiting as a result of we have seen too typically over time how shortly prospects can change their minds. All that being stated, with Hill, something apart from an eventual selection of Texas could be a considerable shock. Different groups aren’t going to only throw within the towel, together with Texas A&M and a few prime nationwide packages. However Hill was all the way down to Texas A&M and Texas earlier than he initially dedicated to the Aggies, he arrange this weekend’s UT go to simply previous to saying his decommitment and he has a very good relationship with each the Texas employees and the present group of UT commitments. I simply do not see another possibility that feels almost as life like as a selection of Texas.

2. Javien Toviano is a lock to LSU.
Harris’ take: FICTION. The DFW product has finished a very good job of maintaining his recruitment near his vest and he has thrown off fanbases and reporters for the reason that starting. With that being stated, Javien Toviano has taken two visits to LSU this season and was in attendance for the massive time beyond regulation win over Alabama final week. I like the place the Tigers sit essentially the most, however Texas, Oregon and others will throw their greatest punches on this combat earlier than it is throughout.
Patterson’s take: FICTION. LSU actually appears to have a wholesome lead on the remainder of the pack to land Toviano. Nevertheless, the five-star continues to take visits and will likely be in Austin to see the Longhorns tackle TCU in what ought to be a raucous environment. The Longhorns have some severe momentum and had been as soon as considered as a favourite in Toviano’s recruitment. So, this weekend has an opportunity to go a great distance. That stated, Texas, and different packages, have work to do to catch LSU – particularly after Toviano witnessed the Tigers’ thrilling time beyond regulation win over Alabama. I do imagine LSU will finally win out for Toviano, however “lock” is perhaps a bit too sturdy of a phrase.

3. Anthony Evans III will signal with Georgia.
Harris’ take: FACT. It was a shock that four-star broad receiver Anthony Evans III dedicated to Oklahoma again in late August to start with, and now Georgia is beginning to come again round on this recruitment forward of signing day. Evans visited Athens final week for the Bulldogs’ win over Tennessee regardless of a no-visit coverage for Sooners commits, so it could possibly be an indication that the inevitable will finally come to fruition for Georgia within the coming weeks.
Could’s take: FACT. Georgia very almost received out for Evans to start with. Since he dedicated to Oklahoma, the Sooners have seen their 2022 season go sideways whereas the Bulldogs have showcased an explosive passing sport not like their offenses in recent times. Georgia and receivers coach Bryan McClendon by no means misplaced contact with Evans after he dedicated. An unofficial go to to the Tennessee sport solely added gasoline to the hearth. If I needed to choose immediately, I’m betting that Evans leads to purple and black.
