Recruiting Update: Michigan Tops ESPN’s Early Recruiting Rankings

Michigan leads ESPN.com’s recruiting rankings with 21 total recruits and eleven in the site’s top 150. Florida and Alabama continue to go back and forth for No. 2 in the rankings, with the Gators holding that spot for now.

Both the Gators and Crimson Tide have 18 total commitments and seven ESPNU top 150 players. Florida has signed the nation’s most four star recruits (17) but does not have a five star recruit.

Georgia’s presence at No. 5 gives the SEC three of the top five schools in the early rankings. USC has signed four of the nation’s top 15 prospects (based off of ESPN’s recruiting rankings) but comes in at No. 8.

The nation’s No. 1 overall recruit, Robert Nkemdiche, has committed to Clemson.

LB Kiser Commits to Virginia

Linebacker Micah Kiser has committed to play for Virginia. Although Kiser is from Maryland, he chose Virginia because he felt the Cavaliers offered better academics than his hometown Terps.

Stanford, Florida, Oklahoma, and Virginia Tech were among other schools that had offered Kiser a scholarship.



LB Camara Commits to Play for South Carolina in 2013

Steve Spurrier added commitment No. 7 for 2013 on Tuesday.

Linebacker Michael Camara has committed to play for South Carolina in 2013.

“The bottom line is that I just felt really comfortable there at South Carolina,” Camara said. “I really liked the university, their academics and the coaching staff in general. And I think I am a good fit for their defense.”

Camara had scholarship offers from Western Kentucky and Jacksonville State while Mississippi State, Cincinnati and Arkansas were all showing interest.

It’s interesting that South Carolina offered a guy a scholarship that only had one division one offer up to this point, although it looks like more were coming.
