Recruiment Analysis + Summer Prediction on Where Marvin Wilson, Jeffrey Okudah, Walker Little, Anthony Hines and Baron Browning May Commit

The top five highest rated recruits in the Midlands region are all five stars and they also all happen to be uncommitted, but how long could that last? Scout takes a closer look at each of the these phenom's recruitment and gives our current prediction on where each could sign...

DT Marvin Wilson

Taylor Estes - Horns Digest

Who to Watch: Wilson has almost always been considered as a guy who would eventually end up somewhere in the Southeast at a school like LSU, Alabama or Florida State. Three schools that made early pushes. Ole Miss is a school that seems to have established itself in the picture alongside schools like USC, Oklahoma and Texas which pushed hard this spring and summer. Official visits will be key here and this is a recruitment that could be filled with some good twists and turns. Buckle up. 

When to Watch: 'Big Marv' will be playing his decision out until the end and is planning a National Signing Day decision. 

Summer 2016 Prediction: LSU


ATH Jeffrey Okudah

Who to Watch: Every program wants to land Okudah, but Ohio State has been named and renamed as his leader. Pushing up the list would be Oklahoma and the Sooners may have settled in as a No. 2 option for Okudah that is closer to his current Dallas-area home. How interesting could that match-up between the Buckeyes and Sooners be on September 17 for Okudah? I'd bet that he's in attendance for the 6:30 pm kickoff in Norman, Okla.  

When to Watch: No decision date has been announced, but he is on commit watch as he plans to be an early enrollee. 

Summer 2016 Prediction: Ohio State


OT Walker Little

Taylor Estes - Horns Digest

Who to Watch: The three major players here are likely Stanford, Ole Miss and Texas and that is probably the order I would lay them out if I were picking his top three schools. Little has been very honest about the recruiting process and has some very strong ties to Ole Miss in the SEC, but could strike his own path and end up in the Pac-12 or Big 12. 

When to Watch: Little could make his decision soon and has indicated he would like to before the start of his senior year. 

Summer 2016 Prediction: Stanford


LB Anthony Hines

Who to Watch: Hines has narrowed his list to a Top 10. Auburn, Florida, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M and UCLA. Schools closer to home could have the best chances at landing him like Texas, TCU or Oklahoma. Ohio State has done a great job of recruiting him as well. 

When to Watch: No decision date has been announced, but Hines has indicated it could happen before the start of the season. 

Summer 2016 Prediction: Oklahoma


LB Baron Browning

Who to Watch: Browning also has a Top 10 list for now. Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC. We are keeping a closer eye on TCU, Texas, Notre Dame, Ohio State and UCLA and those would be the programs we would guess that could receive his five official visits or would likely make a top five list if he released one. With a possible decision date in mind his in-season visits will be key for schools outside of the state. They need to get him on campus and the quicker the better.  

When to Watch: Browning has said that he could possibly make his decision on November 29, which is his fathers birthday. His father played at TCU. 

Summer 2016 Prediction: TCU
