Out of the top 50 prospects in the country, 16 come from the South. Seven of the elite seniors remain uncommitted, but one is closing in on his decision. Find out the latest on each one and who could commit first here.
The South is loaded year after year and some of the best in the country still have not made their decision.
Here is the latest on each of the seven uncommitted five-stars in the South.
Schools of Interest: Auburn
, Florida State
, North Carolina
, Penn State
, and South Carolina
The fifth and final official visit for Lattimore is still a mystery, but it will likely be between Georgia and North Carolina. He has visited Columbia a number of times and it is closest to home, so he feels he doesn't need to take an official visit to South Carolina. The Gamecocks still are still the favorites to land Lattimore, but he is playing everything close to the vest.
Projected Commitment Time: Look for Lattimore to announce on National Signing Day.
– Linebacker – Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Schools of Interest:
He has visited Tennessee
officially and he said last week that he planned to visit Florida
as well. That leaves one final official visit and he said Alabama
, Florida State, Georgia, and Ohio State
were schools under consideration.
Odds are still higher that he will end up staying in state than leaving the state, but the number may have dropped some over the last month. Tennessee made a huge impression on Luc and you can't ever count the Trojans out. Scout still projects Luc to end up at Florida or FSU at this time.
Projected Commitment Time: This all depends on if Luc is able to enroll early or not. He should find that out soon, but if he can, then will decide in December, but if can't then look for a decision in January.
Schools of Interest:
Auburn, Florida State, Illinois
, and Tennessee.
This has gone back and forth over the last couple of months. Illinois has a chance to steal one out of Florida here and they are still a legit contender for Lemonier, but Miami has really come on strong with a big 2009 season. The Hurricanes are close to home and The U has a slight edge right now even though Lemonier says his final five are all even.
Projected Commitment Time: Lemonier stated this week that he will commit on National Signing Day.
