In this day and age when recruits are verbally committing to their schools of choice earlier and earlier, some of the suspense has been taken out of National Signing Day. Still there are a number of recruits that have yet to make their intentions known. Where they decide to spend their collegiate careers could have huge fantasy implications. Here is a quick look at some of the top uncommitted prospects heading into National Signing Day, Feb. 3. We'll be breaking down each position later in the week.
RB Marcus Lattimore - Both Rivals and Scout have Lattimore ranked as the top running back prospect while ESPN has him at number two. So naturally we are intrigued to see where he ends up running the pigskin. Lattimore's top two have been South Carolina and Auburn for some time, with both sides feeling confident that they will land the powerful back from Duncan, SC. Auburn already has a commitment from Michael Dyer, another top running back prospect, which could make for a crowded backfield when you also throw in current freshman Onterio McCalebb.
WR Markeith Ambles - USC, North Carolina and Tennessee are the three favorites for this top five (Rivals and ESPN) receiver recruit. USC appears to lead and if he does follow Lane Kiffin out West, the Trojans will have one heck of a haul at wide receiver with Ambles, Kyle Prater and Marcus Woods. Prater and Woods are consensus top five receiver recruits. If the trio do sign then you can bet Matt Barkley will be giddier than Brian after downloading a new iPhone app..
WR Christian Green - Florida State, Florida and Georgia lead for this Tampa product, with the Seminoles and Bulldogs pushing the hardest. Both schools already have playmakers at the wide receiver spot, but the Seminoles could certainly use someone to step up and be the go-to guy.
WR Da'Rick Rogers - Rogers has verbally committed to Georgia but recently visited Tennessee with high school teammate Nash Nance. Nance, a quarterback, committed to the Vols shortly after their visit, making fans from Athens wonder if Rogers will follow.
QB Brion Carnes - Carnes' recruitment has taken a number of twists and turns. Originally a South Florida commit, it now appears as though he will head to Western Kentucky. If he does land with the Hilltoppers, instead of Nebraska, he could arguably be one of the highest rated recruits to set foot on campus...if he qualifies.
TE Christian Thomas - A consensus top ten tight end recruit, Thomas is down to Oregon State, Oregon, USC and Miami. All four have produced fantasy tight ends in the last decade and could turn Thomas into one as well.
