Brown has been the busiest on the trail, seemingly making an East Coast and Midwest swing this spring and now in the summer, but he maintains that he's solid to Alabama. His last two trips, camp efforts at Ohio State and Notre Dame, drew a lot of attention. He has both programs now in his top five, of course beginning with Alabama, with the Buckeyes in there because of the attention they showed him after he earned the offer and the Irish in because of his impression of campus and the program's academic prestige. The longtime pledge plans to be back in Tuscaloosa next month for camp, and he continues to recruit for the Crimson Tide though one source tells BamaMag that the in-state Georgia Bulldogs remain a serious threat later in the game.
Warmack has been a frequent visitor to Auburn, Georgia and wants to get to places like South Carolina and Texas, but he also maintains his solidity to the Tide. Depth chart concerns were once the major tipping point for other programs with the UA legacy, but Chance Warmack's younger brother has since had multiple talks with the Tide staff about his place on the offensive interior to the point that his verbal is a little less in question.
Like his fellow Georgians, AU and UGA have been hosts to Ledbetter plenty of times of late, with one trip to Tuscaloosa mixed in since he pledged just before signing day. He has gone on record with the notion that his seemingly imminent flip to Mark Richt's program was over-hyped by the media, though the move would not surprise many if he followed through with the expectation. BamaMag will have more from Ledbetter in a few weeks at Nike's The Opening, the big camp event hosting 10 current commitments, including four players on this list.
LSU hosted him for camp earlier this month and he snagged the in-state offer he's thought should be his since the summer after his freshman campaign. Shortly after, he Tweeted that a "final" decision would come through during his participation at the Under Armour All-America Game. He has since deleted the post and been saying all the right things about his relationships with Alabama and its staff, where he will continue to build next month when he makes his return to Tuscaloosa for the first time since committing more than five months ago. Charlot will be one to watch all the way through the process.
Somehow quietly, Jennings saw several schools, including Nebraska, Louisville and Ohio State shortly after he committed to the in-state school. Still, his commitment to Alabama is about as solid as it gets, and his little brother (Shawndarius Jennings) is popping up on radar as well, only seemingly helping UA's chances at holding onto the versatile defender. Speaking of his position, the 6-foot-3, 260-pound Jennings told BamaMag on Wednesday that playing tight end is something he has talked to the Crimson Tide staff about, something that could be a big part of the 2015 class depending on available spots down the stretch.
Another quiet-type, Ridley has been on the Miami and Ohio State campuses recently, enjoying each trip. The Hurricanes have long been in the mix for the area-prospect, but the Buckeyes' hosting him last week promoted a return trip to Columbus for an official visit down the road. Still, Ridley is the class' prized wide receiver projection, and the staff has stressed his importance to the group of late.
Like his buddy and high school teammate Ridley, each of which will be in Oregon for Nike's event, Ohio State has joined the conversation as much as the hometown Miami ‘Canes have. These two have maintained that they will be a package deal all the way through, so chances are the school with the current verbal, UA, has a better shot at holding onto each unless both agree to make a switch. Of course, it will be tracked all the way through, as well.
Florida State, LSU, Ole Miss and Mississippi State have been the schools on Lewis (pictured above) the most since his commitment to Alabama on A-Day, but the belief is that the Bulldogs would be the biggest threat to snag his flip if he decides to jump ship. This isn't a case against Alabama, in which he loves the program, city, staff and remains close to Reuben Foster -- but more of a hat tip to Dan Mullen and company. It has made Lewis arguably its top priority down the stretch. LSU has come on of late and is always a threat, too, especially if the Tigers get him on campus again. Lewis' pledge could be the wildest ride come January.
