Thursdays are for recruiting folks, and this Thursday, a week from kickoff, is no different. Well, it sort of is different, but that's because schools are so focused on turning the corner from camp to game prep that there are very few commitments on the horizon. We've still got a few things to tell you about, including some "re-commitments."

We'll start out with some good news from the West Coast. The Washington Huskies nabbed a commitment from Kevin King, a defensive back from California. Washington's defense is a work in progress, and getting more talent on that side of the ball is an ongoing process.

In the Big 12, the West Virginia Mountaineers landed a 4-star recruit in defensive end De'Asian Richardson. Richardson plans on taking his other official visits, but Dana Holgorsen has his foot in the door on the big kid from Florida, and other teams will have quite the time wrestling him away from the Mountaineers.

From a Big 12 newcomer to an SEC newcomer and former Big 12 member, Texas A&M. The Aggies, who have been beating down the doors in recruiting this cycle, just added another name to their list, giving them 28 recruits for 2013. Cameron Echols-Luper, an athlete at a high school in the heart of SEC country, pledged for the Aggies this week. 

Also in the SEC, this time in the East, some not so good news. For Florida, defensive end Josh Outlaw decommitted, becoming the fourth decommitment from the Gators in August.

Georgia picked up a couple of "re-commitments" this week in the form of John Atkins and Leonard Floyd. Both Floyd and Atkins were members of the 2012 recruiting class for the Bulldogs, but they failed to qualify and will be attending Hargrave Military Academy, looking to enroll for the red and black in 2013. 

In the ACC, the Hokies got a commitment from a stud in-state player. Defensive end Wyatt Teller from Bealeton, Virginia, added himself to a Hokies haul that is shaping up to be one of the best in recent memory.
