A Week From Signing Day: Top Targets For Each Team

It’s the final Wednesday in January, which means we are one week away from National Signing Day.

Here’s a look at two prospects likely to be near the top of each team’s recruiting big board with a week to go.


Alabama

1. OL Cyrus Kouandjio from Hyattsville, Md. He’s the nation’s No. 1 offensive tackle, according to Rivals.com. It will be an upset if he doesn’t join his brother, Arie, in Tuscaloosa.

2. DE Jeoffrey Pagan from Asheville, N.C. He’s committed to Clemson, but he also gave his pledge to Florida at one point. He visited Alabama last weekend and the Crimson Tide looks to be in contention.


Arkansas


1. LB Cedrick Cooper from Lithonia, Ga. Arkansas has remained in good shape since he visited in December. Can the Razorbacks hold off South Carolina and a potential visit to Ole Miss?

2. DT Mickey Johnson from Covington, La. Arkansas seems like an underdog against LSU and Tennessee. Still, the Razorbacks would happily take him.


Auburn


1. DT Gabe Wright from Columbus, Ga. He’s been considered a lock to sign with Auburn. Will the Tigers hold off Tennessee?

2. DB Erique Florence from Valley, Ala. Auburn would love to land this hard hitter, especially because that would keep him from choosing rival Alabama.


Florida

1. DT Timmy Jernigan from Lake City, Fla. Will Muschamp and his staff have made a good impression. Can Florida pull him away from Florida State and hold off LSU and Tennessee from making a push?

2. LB Curt Maggitt from West Palm Beach, Fla. – The Gators look to be in great shape with Maggitt, who’s also strongly considering Wisconsin and Tennessee.


Georgia


1. RB Isaiah Crowell from Columbus, Ga. He’s the top target on Georgia’s board, and the Bulldogs plan to use him right away. Alabama is the top competition for Crowell.

2. DE Ray Drew from Thomasville, Ga. He could wrap up the “Dream Team” from inside the state. Georgia is recruiting several talented defensive players. Drew is their main target.


Kentucky


1. LB Lamar Dawson from Danville, Ky. He has been a top priority for Kentucky throughout the recruiting process. The Wildcats hope to make it through his upcoming visit to Tennessee.

2. WR Daryl Collins from Gadsden, Ala. He’s committed to Alabama but clearly looking around. Will Kentucky sway his decision when he visits Lexington this weekend?


LSU


1. DE Jermauria Rasco from Shreveport, La. Can Florida steal him away? Coach Les Miles has done a nice job landing in-state prospects, but many schools are trying to make a late push for Rasco.

2. Timmy Jernigan. See his listing under Florida. LSU is considered a darkhorse, but the Tigers won’t give up until he gives a team his signature.


Ole Miss


1. WR Nickolas Brassell from Batesville, Miss. The U.S. Army All-American says he’s close to a decision. Will it be the in-state school or could Alabama steal him away?

2. RB Tre Mason from Lake Worth, Fla. His most recent visit was to Ole Miss. The Rebels will battle Auburn for Mason’s services.


Mississippi State


1. DL Leon Mackey from Raymond, Miss. The junior college prospect is hoping to finally land somewhere. Mississippi State looks to be the favorite with Tennessee and South Carolina still in contention.

2. DT Kevin McReynolds from Washington, D.C. He visited Starkville last weekend. He’ll visit Kansas State and still has Syracuse and UCLA on his list.


South Carolina


1. DE Jadeveon Clowney from Rock Hill, S.C. He’s widely considered the nation’s top prospect and certainly the top player in South Carolina. The Gamecocks will try to hold off Alabama and perhaps Florida State for Clowney, who could wait past signing day to officially decide.

2. Cedrick Cooper. As noted above, Arkansas is hoping to land the Lithonia linebacker. Will his recent visit to Columbia sway him to the side of South Carolina?


Tennessee


1. OL Antonio Richardson from Nashville, Tenn. He’s the top prospect in the state and the top priority for the Vols. UT will hope his mind doesn’t turn to Georgia or Southern California.

2. Lamar Dawson. He’s a top priority for Kentucky, but UT has a chance to steal him away. The Vols will get his final visit and try to make up the difference this weekend.


Vanderbilt


1. Athlete Josh Grady from Seffner, Fla. Vanderbilt is trying to catch South Florida and Wake Forest. He will visit Nashville this weekend. Can the Commodores convince him to play in the SEC?

2. DB Larry Franklin from Vero Beach, Fla. His final visit will be to Vanderbilt this weekend. Is Michigan State in there? If not, Vanderbilt might be the favorite.
