Chris Allen

Scout Ranking:  No. 74

Committed to:  Alabama

Who to Watch:  LSU

The Buzz:  Can 'Bama reel this one back in this weekend?  Allen was at LSU last weekend, the Tigers seem to have made things a little more cloudy for him the last 10 days or so, but he is still on the Crimson Tide's commitment list, he is in Tuscaloosa (Ala.) this weekend, and he will be hard to take away from Nick Saban.  This one is pretty tight though, and he is from Baton Rouge (La.), so this one is not overwith yet.

Jamyest Williams

Scout Ranking:  No. 86

Committed to:  South Carolina

Who to Watch:  Georgia

The Buzz:  Williams has family in Athens (Ga.), he has friends that play for Georgia, and now the school close to home will get their shot to flip him this weekend.  He chose the Gamecocks due to relationships and being a focal point for them in recruiting.  He seems a little more interested in Georgia right now than he has the last few months, so lets see how this one plays out.  He will visit Columbia (S.C.) next weekend.

Jacob Phillips

Scout Ranking:  No. 91

Committed to:  Oklahoma

Who to Watch:  LSU

The Buzz:  Can the Sooners hang on here?  The odds do not seem to be in their favor.  Phillips is headed to Baton Rouge (La.) this weekend for an unofficial visit to LSU, and despite being committed to Oklahoma, LSU is the team with the most buzz around it right now.  The Tigers are a legit threat to the Sooners here.

Devante Wyatt

Scout Ranking:  No. 226

Committed to:  Georgia

Who to Watch:  Florida and South Carolina

The Buzz:  At one time Wyatt was committed to South Carolina, then he flipped to Georgia early in August, so could he flip one more time?  It is definitely a possibility.  He visited the Gamecocks last weekend, he is in Athens (Ga.) this weekend visiting the school he is committed to and he plans to visit the Gators next weekend.  Many think South Carolina is the biggest threat, and that may be true, but Florida is very much in this too.

Kai-Leon Herbert

Scout Ranking:  No. 257

Committed to:  Michigan

Who to Watch:  Florida

The Buzz:  It is hard to see Herbert staying with the Wolverines at this time.  He does like Miami, and he will visit the Hurricanes this weekend, it is another in-state school, Florida, who has the edge right now.  Herbert will take his official visit to The Swamp next weekend.
