Quick Take: It's not a surprise that Wiggins made it out of the early signing period still available. In fact, it was expected. He still has a handful of schools on his list, but Florida State and Kentucky still appear to be the major contenders. The next step in all this is to start taking more visits. He's planning a return visit to Florida State at the beginning of December, according to Huntington (W.V.) Prep coach Rob Fulford. He's been to UK a few times unofficially. The next question is whether he'll visit some of the other schools on his list or not.

Recruiting: Florida State, Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas, Ohio State & Syracuse

Quick Take: Much like, Wiggins, Parker wasn't expected to sign early. Most believe this recruitment has a ways to go, despite having already taken visits to all of the schools on his list. Most believe that Duke, Florida and Michigan State are in the top tier, with Stanford and BYU in the second tier.

Quick Take: Randle has recently taken official visits to Kentucky and Florida, while also stopping by Texas unofficially. Now he's working on setting up official visits dates for Kansas and either Texas or Oklahoma in the next month. He'll then take a trip to North Carolina State the weekend of January 26th. Randle told Brian Snow this past weekend that a college choice wouldn't come until after his senior season.

Quick Take: Although Aaron Gordon didn't make his college choice during signing week, he did narrow his list of schools to three – Arizona, Kentucky & Washington. He's taken official visits to all three schools, but just wasn't ready to make his final choice. Gordon, a top 10 recruit, hasn't set a timeframe for announcing his choice.

Recruiting: Arizona, Washington, Kentucky

Size: 7-10/240 |
Quick Take: Dakari Johnson made the switch to the 2013 class and immediately became a top target for many schools. Florida went to see him the day following his announcement and Kentucky's John Calipari went in to see him on Saturday. There are a host of other schools involved and there appears to be a ways to go. The process is being expedited and he still needs to visit these schools. Look for this deal to go into the spring.

Recruiting: Syracuse, Florida, Kentucky, Georgetown, Kansas & Ohio State

Size: 7-9/205 |
Quick Take: Despite having publicly narrowing his list of schools to Cincinnati, Saint John's, Syracuse and UNLV, Jermaine Lawrence took an unofficial visit to Manhattan last week. Do the Jaspers have a legit shot? That remains to be seen, but regardless they got him to campus. Much like the other available elite kids, Lawrence doesn't appear to be in a rush and his recruitment is expected to go into the late spring.

Recruiting: Cincinnati, Manhattan, Saint John's, Syracuse & UNLV

Size: 7-6/192 |
Quick Take: Keith Frazier has taken his fair share of visits. He's been to Arizona, Texas A&M, SMU and Arizona a few times. Despite having visited most of the schools on his list, Frazier has always planned on committing and signing in the spring. That is still the plan. During the summer, most thought Arizona was the school to beat, but now it wouldn't surprise us to see Frazier stay closer to home.

Recruiting: Texas A&M, LSU, Texas, SMU & Arizona

Size: 6-4/175 |
Quick Take: Although he didn't sign during the early period, Rysheed Jordan appears to be fairly close to a college decision. His list is down to four – Saint John's, Syracuse, Rutgers and Temple. He's visited the schools on his list and could decide anytime in the near future.

Recruiting: Saint John's, Syracuse, Rutgers & Temple

Size: 6-8/160 |
Quick Take: Stevie Clark nearly popped during the early signing period, but instead opted to wait a week. He's planning to announce his college choice on Friday. Baylor and Oklahoma State appear to be the behind the scenes finalists, with the smart money being on Oklahoma State for his ultimate destination.

Recruiting: Baylor, Florida State, Missouri, Oklahoma State & UCLA

Size: 7-9/210 |
Quick Take: The Demetrius Henry camp has been fairly quiet. The 6-foot-9 big man out of Florida took official visits to Clemson and Rutgers in October. Since those trips it's been fairly quiet on the Henry front. He's also looked at South Florida, South Carolina, Miami and others.

Recruiting: Clemson, Rutgers, South Florida, South Carolina & Miami
