College Football Recruiting 2013: Predictions for Top 12 Uncommitted Recruits

0 of 12

    The fluidity of recruiting continues with this 2013 recruiting class. As we approach the home stretch to National Signing Day, we are going to hear and witness an increased number of developments, updates, twists and news.

    All of that will undoubtedly affect our predictions on where the top uncommitted recruits will sign. You will notice that the effects are already starting to take place in this piece, as we give you updated predictions for the nation's best 12 uncommitted high school football prospects.

    Let's begin.

12. Tim Williams, DE

1 of 12

    Williams is a long, 6'4", 230-pound DE from Louisiana that one would figure is a lock to LSU. Yet that is not the case, as several schools have a chance with the edge defender.

    Showing a quick first step to jump on top of blockers, Williams bends well and converts speed to solid power as a pass-rusher. His strength is solid, as evidenced by his capability to set the edge vs. the run.

    Prediction: Florida State

11. Max Redfield, S

2 of 12

    Redfield was once pledged to USC, but the talented safety is no longer bound for Troy. At 6'2" and 195 pounds, Redfield has great length, athleticism and ball skills.

    I like him best as a class free safety, where he can roam deep parts of the field and launch off hashes to jump passing lanes for interceptions.

    Prediction: Notre Dame

10. Laquon Treadwell, WR

3 of 12

    Treadwell has bulked up to 195 pounds while standing between 6'2" and 6'3". Treadwell has an impressive looking frame while also displaying good speed, separation quickness and hands.

    What has impressed me about Treadwell this season has been his willingness to block. He's stalked cornerbacks, pressed them up and stacked well to seal off the perimeter for his running backs.

    Prediction: Ole Miss

9. Alvin Kamara, RB

4 of 12

    From Georgia, Kamara is a great back that stands 5'10", 195 pounds. He can shoot off of his stance, survey front sevens, jump and slide to holes and skate through run alleys.

    Kamara also has solid run strength and will flash some tackle-breaking ability. He's also a good receiver out of the backfield.

    Prediction: Georgia

8. Robert Foster, WR

5 of 12

    Foster is a very sudden and explosive type of athlete. He's from Pennsylvania and has good lateral quickness to escape press coverage, athleticism to avoid trash and quickness to detach from coverage.

    Foster has solid hands and really lets his talents be known in the post-catch phase. He has the running instincts of a running back and can outrun just about anyone to pay dirt at 6'2", 190 pounds.

    Prediction: Pitt

7. Vonn Bell, S

6 of 12

    Bell is a 6'0", 190-pound DB that can play both safety positions and maybe some corner, too. He has excellent play speed, transition quickness and shoot out of his pedal.

    Bell sees the football well, attacks when he reacts and hammers the nail coming from the back end vs. the run. This is a player that I'd want on my team.

    Prediction: Ohio State

6. Montravius Adams, DT

7 of 12

    If you want a DT who has the potential to develop into a game-changer, then you want Adams. At 6'3" and over 300 pounds, the Georgia native has some physically impressive tools.

    Adams shows very good snap quickness, can surge into a blocker, clean himself back up and use his strength to walk him back. Adams can also use his athleticism to penetrate gaps and make plays in the backfield.

    Prediction: Georgia

5. Antonio Conner, S

8 of 12

    At 6'1" and 200 pounds, Conner is a great safety prospect who can play FS or SS. He's a competitive that guy that loves to win and does what he has to do to come out on top.

    Conner has good explosion coming out of transition, squeezes around the box well and has very good all-around athleticism. He's also a solid RB, too.

    Prediction: Ole Miss

4. Matthew Thomas, OLB

9 of 12

    Thomas is a 6'3" OLB from Miami who weighs about 210 pounds. He's got great athleticism, instincts, speed, lateral agility and range.

    Thomas can chase and hawk plays to the perimeter by beating bigger OL's to their second-level spots, sifting through traffic and wrapping up ball-carriers. He's also a good pass-rusher off the edge in sub-packages.

    Prediction: Florida State

3. Laremy Tunsil, OT

10 of 12

    Tunsil has a very good chance to be a very good LT in college. He gets out of his stance easily and quickly, can deep-set well and has the athleticism and agility to mirror rushers of any kind.

    He recovers and adjusts well, can cut off inside moves and also has the ability to get up on the second level as a run-blocker.

    Prediction: Georgia

2. Ricky Seals-Jones, WR/TE

11 of 12

    At 6'5" and 230 pounds, Seals-Jones has the size, strength, ball skills and leaping ability to be a premier pass-catcher.

    His shows solid speed and quickness, which makes the debate of WR vs. TE for him interesting.

    My gut tells me he would prefer to stay at WR, but he may grow into a TE before he leaves college.

    Prediction: Texas A&M

1. Robert Nkemdiche, DE

12 of 12

    A man among boys at times, Nkemdiche has tremendous power and strength on a 6'5", 270-pound frame. The Georgia native has good snap quickness and athleticism and can change direction very easily.

    He plays big at the point of attack, can shed blocks and holds up well vs. the run. Nkemdiche can play DE, DT and even some OLB in a 3-4 scheme.

    Prediction: Ole Miss
