Every week we tool around the nation and bring you all the big recruiting news that is fit to post. Big commitments are the name of the game here and this week, courtesy of a former Oklahoma commit, we also have a big decommitment.
We've teased it already, so let's hit on Greg Bryant. The Sooners prize at running back for 2013 has decommited from Bob Stoops and staff. Bryant, as our colleague Barrett Sallee discussed earlier this week, is now entertaining offers from the mighty SEC. However, OU would not come up empty this week, safety Hatari Byrd, out of California, committed to the Sooners.
From one elite defensive back to another, Virginia Tech got a commitment from Kendall Fuller. Fuller becomes the fourth of his brothers to pledge to the Hokies and the 5-star cornerback will be a welcome addition in Blacksburg.
Clemson also added a defensive back. Florida safety Jayron Kearse pledged to the Tigers this week, becoming the second commitment for Dabo in that time. First to make the jump was wide receiver Mike Williams out of Lake Marion, S.C.
Also in the Atlantic Division, the Florida State Seminoles continued their recruiting hot streak. This time it comes on the defensive side of the ball, Immokalee linebacker, Mackenro Alexander, who will likely play safety at Florida State, committed to the Seminoles.
Heading north, to the Midwest, we hit Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish have cooled down lately, but this week added Jamel James to their 2013 haul. Jenkins is a running back out of Texas that will definitely help as Brian Kelly rebuilds his offensive line and run game in the coming seasons.
The University of Southern California, a team that is just wowing the nation with their recruiting gets, continues to capitalize. This week they've added two more to their already rich haul. Torrodney Prevot, a defensive end out of Houston, is now in the boat for Lane Kiffin. To go along with Prevot, another defensive end, Jason Hatcher, joined up with the men of Troy.
USC was not the only Pac-12 school making moves this week. Washington, also got into the mix with a couple of big-time recruiting wins. Marcus Farria, a linebacker, pledged to the Huskies. To go along with Farria, the Huskies added Sean Harlow, an offensive lineman from California, helps bolster Steve Sarkisian's solid class.
We'll wrap up in the SEC as LSU and South Carolina continue to add to their robust classes. LSU put another defensive back on the board as Rashard Robinson committed. Steve Spurrier followed suit as they pulled Brendan Langley, a cornerback out of Georgia, into their fold.
However, Florida is the true story in the SEC's recruiting world for the week. The Gators landed four commitments in the last week. Chris Thompson, a home-grown talent in Gainesville, joins the wide receiver corp. Defensive ends Jordan Sherit, from Florida and Antonio Riles, from Georgia, both pledged for Will Muschamps squad.
Oh, and of course the biggest news: Vernon Hargreaves III, a 5-star defensive back, committed to the Gators. Hargreaves III is one of, if not the, best cornerbacks in the nation.
