No. 69 -- Alvin Kamara, RB
Ranking: (No. 12 overall RB)
Interested in: Alabama, Georgia
The latest: Kamara visited each of his two finalists in the past two weekends. We're still waiting for word on how the Georgia visit went, but we know the Alabama trip went well (see the quote below). The Crimson Tide appear to be the favorite at this point.
In his words: "Reflecting on my visit, Alabama is so high on my list because I can honestly see myself there. I am definitely comfortable with the players and the coaching staff. I could see myself having a role there if I do things right and take advantage of the opportunities presented to me." -- Jan. 20

Ranking: (No. 6 overall DE)
Commitment: Washington (soft verbal)
Interested in: Washington, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, TCU, Washington State
The latest: The former Texas commit flipped to the Huskies in June but has been taking visits since, with no strong indication if he intends to alter his plans.
In his words: "It was tough to de-commit from Texas, but it wasn’t anything against them personally. I just wanted to move closer to be with my family. ... I’m a Dawg. This is where I belong and I’m relieved to have this over." -- June 29

No. 67 -- Grant Hill, OG
Ranking: (No. 3 overall OG)
The latest: Hill has been a Crimson Tide commit since February, and there are no indications the Alabama native is considering a switch.

No. 66 -- Frank Herron, DE
Ranking: (No. 5 overall DE)
The latest: Herron committed to LSU in June but has kept others in mind during the process. He visited Ole Miss and Tennessee, among others. For now at least, he appears to be solid to LSU.
In his words: "I feel like I can go in (to LSU) and play early. They told me that they play a lot of defensive linemen and that if I work hard, I can go in and be a part of the eight-man rotation." -- June 1

The latest: A UCLA commit since June, Jack just visited Westwood again this month and maintains that he is a solid commit to the Bruins, despite late pushes from several other schools.
In his words: "The trip (to UCLA) was really great and all the different aspects of why I chose the school, each day, they really hit on those aspects." -- Jan. 23

No. 64 -- Holland Fisher, LB

Commitment: Virginia Tech

In his words: "When I first committed (to Virginia Tech), I wasn’t quite sure, but after getting up there and being around the players, I realized it’s a great environment. The coaching staff welcomed me and I really had fun." -- Jan. 3

No. 63 -- Tahaan Goodman, S
Ranking: (No. 7 overall S)
The latest: Goodman just picked the Bruins on Jan. 23 and has given every indication that it's a solid commitment.
In his words: "Coach (Jim) Mora is a great coach and he’s really turning things around there. UCLA is so much tougher than they used to be and this is only the beginning. Once he gets more of his own recruits into the program, I think things will really get rolling." -- Jan. 23

No. 62 -- DeVeon Smith, RB
Ranking: (No. 11 overall RB)

In his words: "I took it all in while I was there (at Michigan), then when I was sleeping on the way home I had a dream that I was playing for them. I knew then for sure. I just woke up and called them to commit." -- March 17
