Midwest: Top Ten Uncommitted Seniors

A look at who the top uncommitted players in the Midwest 150 are and where their recruiting stands as of today.

1. Damien Harris - RB, Madison Southern (Ky.)
The once-Michigan commit eliminated the Wolverines and released a top five, but this really seems to come down to two schools: Ohio State and Kentucky right now. The Buckeyes have long been considered the leader, but the Wildcats have gone from dark horse to legitimate contender and continue to make progress.

5. Terry Beckner - DT, East St. Louis (Ill.)
Beckner did not take many unofficial visits during the offseason and may not take any officials until after the season, so his recruitment will likely go deep into the Winter months. Right now, his comfort and familiarity with Missouri makes the Tigers the school others will look to beat on those visits.

10. Asmar Bilal - LB, Indianapolis Ben Davis (Ind.)
This one looks like a Michigan-Notre Dame battle all the way. We see the Irish as the favorite right now, but he also plans to take visits during the season and those could play a factor, but he has already been to both schools during the spring and summer.

14. Anthony McKee - LB, Walnut Ridge (Ohio)
McKee seemed like a done deal to Michigan State, but when he left a recent visit without committing, it left the door open for other schools like Kentucky, Oklahoma and Purdue.

29. Justin Tranquill - S, Fort Wayne Carroll (Ind.)
Tranquill is out for the season with an ACL injury, so that will likely affect new offers coming in, including Notre Dame where his brother plays. Of the schools that have offered, in-state programs Indiana and Purdue are the ones to watch.

30. Darrin Hall - RB, Austintown Fitch (Ohio)
Hall is another who did not take a ton of offseason visits. His recruitment has also been affected by other backs committing, but he will take visits in the Fall and schools like West Virginia, Pittsburgh, and Indiana in the mix along with Kentucky depending on what happens with Damien Harris.

54. John Kelly - RB, Oak Park (Mich.)
It's a two-horse race for Kelly between Michigan State and Minnesota. While it had been rumored that he may be nearing a decision, he continues to insist that he will take his time. The Spartans are the local school and he knows a lot of players and commits, but he has family ties to Minnesota and greatly enjoyed his visits with the Gophers.

60. Drayton Carlberg - OT, Minneapolis De La Salle (Minn.)
Carlberg has gotten around and visited quite a few schools this offseason and has narrowed his schools to Cal, Oregon, Minnesota, North Carolina, Michigan State and Vanderbilt. A decision is not likely until after the season. Some schools are recruiting him on the defensive side of the ball, but that may not play a factor in his final choice.

62. Raequan Williams - DE, Chicago Gordon Tech (Ill.)
Williams is not likely to decide after the season and academics are likely to play a big factor here. He's likely to take an official visit to Missouri and possibly Pac-12 schools like Arizona and Arizona State, but Iowa also remains in strong contention.

64. Mykelti Williams - S, Warren Central (Ind.)

Williams has been somewhat quiet of late, but he could make a decision before the start of his senior season, which kicks off August 22nd. Louisville may be out in front, but Indiana, Ole Miss and others remain in the hunt.
