Rivals nationwide recruiting director Adam Gorney and nationwide recruiting analyst Sam Spiegelman together with Corey Bender from GatorsTerritory.com and Josh McCuistion from SoonerScoop.com sort out three subjects and decide whether or not they imagine every assertion.
Denver Harris is anticipated at Texas this weekend. Alabama continues to be by far the favourite to land his pledge.
Gorney’s take: FACT. This reply may dramatically change if Denver Harris loves his Texas go to this weekend or the Longhorns do one thing spectacular to impress him however the feeling is that Alabama goes to be powerful to beat right here. Harris has even joked that every one his associates poke at him about when he’s going to commit and there have been rumors that it may have occurred this week however nothing got here of it. I’m not counting out Texas but particularly with him on campus however Alabama needs him and Alabama will virtually undoubtedly get him.
Spiegelman’s take: FACT. I don’t know if I might describe it as “by far,” however for a while now, I have been underneath the impression that Alabama is the chief for five-star cornerback Denver Harris. Harris loved his time at Alabama and it additionally made a giant impression on his household. Texas getting Harris on campus is huge, particularly towards the again finish of his recruitment, however it’s nothing out of the norm. It will give the Longhorns workers one other alternative to impress, however I might anticipate one other journey to Tuscaloosa earlier than it is all stated and performed, too.

Cormani McClain is anticipated again at Florida for the second-straight weekend. He is practically a lock to the Gators now.
Gorney’s take: FICTION. Cormani McClain loves Florida. After this latest go to for the Alabama sport, the 2023 four-star cornerback named the Gators his favourite. There’s little doubt in my thoughts that McClain may find yourself in Gainesville. Nevertheless it’s nonetheless too early for me to say he’s “practically a lock” to the Gators as a result of there’s nonetheless a lot time in his recruitment. Enjoying at Florida State with highschool teammate Sam McCall may very well be intriguing. Alabama would possibly blow him away. Possibly Georgia or one other program. Florida is in nice form however is McClain a lock? Not but.
Bender’s take: FACT. “Practically” a lock, sure, however I’ll not often say a highly-regarded prospect is a lock to any college, particularly when they won’t be signing for an additional 14 months. Nevertheless, there is no such thing as a doubt the Gators are sitting in an awesome spot for his or her high cornerback goal within the 2023 class. Florida was McClain’s favourite college previous to being a recruit, however the SEC college is now the official chief in his recruitment as nicely. There’s a sturdy degree of consolation after being in Gainesville a handful of instances, whereas McClain believes he may step proper in and make an impression as a freshman as nicely. He additionally respects UF’s custom of manufacturing top-level DBs, with one being Kaiir Elam, however it’s the home-like really feel that separates UF from further suitors.

Oklahoma has an actual shot to land four-star DE Marvin Jones, Jr., regardless of quite a few connections to varsities within the Southeast.
Gorney’s take: FACT. I’m not going to depend out Oklahoma for Marvin Jones or Gabe Dindy or lots of its high targets though battling Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State and others will probably be a big-time problem. Nonetheless, it’s a phenomenal signal that Jones is taking a go to to Norman this weekend, it needs to be an awesome atmosphere and Florida State’s struggles has to provide Jones some pause as to what’s taking place in Tallahassee. Alabama and Ohio State undoubtedly need Jones and people relationships are far alongside. But when the weekend goes very well then the Sooners may emerge proper in that high group with different nationwide powers.
McCuistion’s take: FICTION. There may be extra of a gap than I’d have believed a month in the past, for the apparent causes that Florida State hasn’t hit the bottom working like they hoped they could in 2021. That appears to depart the door open in opposition to the Seminoles who’re recruiting in opposition to a number of the nation’s most profitable packages. However whereas I believe he will not be locked into Florida State, there’s nonetheless a protracted strategy to go for Oklahoma to be close to the highest of his checklist as they battle in opposition to faculties who’ve extra tenure in South Florida – Alabama and Ohio State most notably.
