We are getting closer and closer to national signing day 2013, but several top recruits still haven't decided where they will go to school.

The collection of defensive and offensive recruits is creating quite the buzz throughout the nation, headlined by defensive end Robert Nkemdiche.

Here's a look at the recruits who are currently undecided who will make an immediate splash in college.


Robert Nkemdiche, DE

A 5-star recruit labeled the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2013 recruiting class by, Robert Nkemdiche figures to be a disruptive force from the start in college, possessing excellent size, strength, explosiveness, burst and toughness.

Nkemdiche not only possesses the ability to create havoc in the backfield, he can occupy multiple blockers, opening up holes for his teammates.


Mackensie Alexander, CB

A 5-star recruit according to, Mackensie Alexander not only has the natural athleticism and explosiveness to be a ball hawk who can cover ground quickly, he displays technique well beyond his years, with little wasted movement in man-to-man coverage.

Alexander figures to be an elite cover corner. Combined with his toughness and ability to play bigger than he is, watch out for the Florida native in college.


Laremy Tunsil, OT

Ranked as the No. 4 overall recruit in the class according to, offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil possesses the natural length, footwork and quick hands to be a dominant blindside protector in college.

Tunsil needs to add more bulk to his frame, but he has all the tools to be a standout player at the next level and a lot is expected from him.


Matthew Thomas, OLB

Given Matthew Thomas' explosiveness, length, strength and agility, it's no wonder ranked the Miami native as the No. 8 overall recruit in the 2013 class.

Thomas possesses the ability to be a dynamic pass-rusher off the edge in college, blowing up plays in the backfield and getting to the quarterback.


Eddie Vanderdoes, DT

As the No. 7 overall recruit and top defensive tackle in the class, Eddie Vanderdoes is an impressive recruit boasting impressive size, strength, awareness, range and pass-rushing ability.

Vanderdoes, with his combination of strength and technique, figures to be a nightmare in between the tackles as he violently sheds blockers to get into the backfield.
