Santa Ana (Calif.) Four-star Mater Dei committed to Notre Dame in August and it seemed his recruitment was over. But things have changed. There were concerns about how far the Irish were passing the ball and then Lincoln Riley he was hired at USC, which rekindled his interest in Trojans.
Williams is now down to USC and UCLA and will announce at the All-American Bowl, and it looks like the Trojans have the edge. Joining Mater Dei teammates Raleek Brown and Domani Jackson at USC wouldn’t be a shock.
Florida State and Oregon have been the two schools to watch for Coleman in recent months, but when he coaches Mario cristobal went to Miami, the Hurricanes did visit the four-star receiver and are now seriously considered.
Coleman has had the longest relationship with the Seminoles coaching staff, so this could be an important factor when it’s time to decide, but Miami is now pushing much harder with Cristobal on board.
USC should also be looked at with Lincoln Riley there because the Trojans could have kidnapped him too.
Southlake, Texas, four-star Carroll had been at Boston College since the summer, but recently gave up on that commitment. It’s not entirely clear which schools are most involved with the big receiver, but one school to watch will be the SMU, as Mustangs continued to show interest during its recruitment.
Wilson’s recruitment has been uneventful in recent months, but the Lancaster, Texas four-star receiver has a few schools that still show a lot of interest in him. Grambling, Vanderbilt, SMU, Kansas State, and Alabama are the five schools that Wilson says have turned the most, so we’ll see how that turns out in the late signing period.
Trent had been busy in Michigan from March through October, but then gave up on that commitment after a visit to Louisville. However, as the fall continued into the winter neither the Wolverines nor the Cardinals have chased the Harper Woods, Michigan, who have excelled so much, and it’s unclear where his recruitment is. Following the junior college path may not be out of the question.
