College football coaches have already begun working on their 2013 recruiting classes. This coming spring they should be able to wrap even a few more commitments that, in some cases, will last all the way through next year's Signing Day.

With the last remaining unsigned recruits deciding in the next week or so, it is already time to look ahead to next year's talent pool.

Here are is a way early look at some of the top commitments already made.

Kenny Bigelow (ESPNU 5-Star DT, Committed to USC)

The 6'3", 280-pounder from Delaware verbally committed to the Trojans and became the first commitment of their 2013 class.

This should be a big year for USC on the football field and it won't surprising to see them continue to snap up recruits as the summer comes and goes and the season begins.

He has the look of a penetrating interior d-lineman.

Caleb Brantley (ESPNU 5-Star DT, Committed to Florida)

The 6'2", 294-pound Florida native is the second in the Gators 2013 recruiting class.

Coach Will Muschamp has put together a solid recruiting base in his first season as the head man and he's only going to get better.

Brantley possesses a good combination of size and quickness.

Reuben Foster (ESPNU 5-Star ILB, Committed to Alabama)

Foster has solid size at 6'2", 242 pounds and fits the bill as a Crimson Tide inside backer.

He loves to play downhill and will excel inside Saban's. Watch him fly around and make plays in the backfield all day long:

He committed in July.

Shane Morris (ESPNU 5-Star QB, Committed to Michigan)

It is about time Brady Hoke landed himself a more traditional quarterback. Morris, a Michigan native, is 6'3", 185 pounds and has everything you look for in a starting QB.

He's accurate, throws a good ball and knows his way around the pocket.

Morris committed last May and was the first to join the Michigan 2013 recruiting class.

Kohl Stewart (ESPNU 5-Star QB, Committed to Texas A&M)

The Houston native has just enough size at 6'2", 185 pounds, but has all the physical tools necessary to succeed.

He's still coming into his own and will mature and grow over time.

Stewart committed in July.
