76 of 100

    Ricky Seals-Jones is a Texas A&M commit listed as an athlete but firmly entrenched as a receiver.

    Seals-Jones is a big-bodied guy who has a deceptive speed for his frame. He will work well in the Aggies offense with Johnny Manziel next season.

    He is the No. 2 athlete in the 2013 class according to the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

No. 24: Keith Ford, Running Back, 5'11", 203 Lbs.

77 of 100

    Keith Ford is one of the top running backs in the 2013 class and has found his future team in Oklahoma. The Sooners are in need of playmakers in the backfield, and Ford could walk in right away and perform.

    He will be a Sooner on signing day.

79 of 100

    Kelvin Taylor is already on Florida's campus preparing for spring drills. Taylor is one of many early enrollees in the 2013 recruiting class.

    Taylor is stepping into a great situation, as Florida has few options at running back. He could step in this spring and make an immediate impact for the Gators.

    He is the No. 2 running back in the country according to the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

No. 21: Carl Lawson, Defensive End, 6'3", 245 Lbs.

    Lawson is a beast on the field, and the Tigers need his type of play immediately on the Plains.

81 of 100

    Thomas Tyner is rated as the No. 1 running back in the country for the 2013 recruiting class in 247Sports.com's Composite Rankings. He is currently committed to Oregon, and a Feb. 1 visit to Eugene appears to be the final seal on his signature on signing day.

    Look for Tyner to come in and compete immediately for carries as the Ducks attempt to rebuild their skilled backfield.

No. 19: O.J. Howard, Tight End, 6'6", 221 Lbs.

82 of 100

    O.J. Howard is the No. 1 tight end in the 2013 recruiting class, per 247Sports.com's Composite Rankings.

    He has been an Alabama commitment since the early summer and has since enrolled at Alabama for the spring semester.

    Howard is a unique talent who could fit a number of schemes well. His presence at Alabama could result in more tight-end passing options in the near future.

83 of 100

    Chris Jones is a highly rated defensive end who is currently committed to Mississippi State. He has been a firm commit since June 2012.

84 of 100

    Kendall Fuller is a solid commitment to Virginia Tech, rated as the No. 3 cornerback in the country according to the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

    Fuller is rangy and has great hips for his size. He could become a major star in the Frank Beamer and Bud Foster scheme.

    Fuller will become a Hokie officially on signing day.

No. 16: Jonathan Allen, Defensive End, 6'3", 260 Lbs.

85 of 100

    Jonathan Allen is committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide as a defensive end or outside linebacker. He has the size to play end but the athleticism to fit the outside linebacker role in a 3-4 scheme like Alabama's.

    His development will be followed closely once he lands at Alabama.

    Allen is the No. 3 outside linebacker in the country according to the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

No. 15: Jalen Ramsey, Cornerback, 6'1", 189 Lbs.

86 of 100

    Jalen Ramsey was a firm commitment to USC early this past summer, but since then Ramsey has perked up his ears and let Florida State and Florida talk him into visits.

    He took his final visit to USC, which should bode well for the Trojans, but he is still high on the Florida schools right now.

    Heading into signing day, I would expect Ramsey to stick with USC.

    Ramsey is the No. 2 cornerback in the country according to the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

No. 14: Laquon Treadwell, Receiver, 6'3", 195 Lbs.

87 of 100

No. 13: Christian Hackenberg, Quarterback, 6'4", 210 Lbs.

88 of 100

    Christian Hackenberg is the headliner for the Penn State recruiting class in 2013. He is the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the 2013 class (per 247Sports.com's Composite Rankings) and has the talent to walk in and earn the starting job for Penn State right away.

    For the Nittany Lions to survive these NCAA sanctions, they will need more players like Hackenberg. If he can earn some wins for Penn State, others will come.

    This is the biggest recruit of the modern era of Penn State football right now. It needs Hackenberg to be a talented leader at a down time for this program.

No. 12: Derrick Henry, Athlete, 6'3", 240 Lbs.

89 of 100

    Derrick Henry is a physical specimen at the running back position. Ranked as the No. 1 athlete in the country in the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings, Henry has the skills to play a number of positions for Alabama.

    Henry is an early enrollee for the Crimson Tide, already on campus preparing for spring ball. Henry will challenge for carries from day one.

No. 11: Max Browne, Quarterback, 6'5", 210 Lbs.

90 of 100

    Max Browne struggled in the Army All-American Bowl, but one game does not sum up the talents of the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the country (per the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings).

    Browne is a USC commit, and the depth chart shows he could be an early option for the starting position. Browne has a unique pocket presence and a live arm, making him a dangerous true freshman heading into the 2013 season.

No. 10: Montravius Adams, Defensive Tackle, 6'4", 310 Lbs.

91 of 100

    UPDATE: Montravius Adams committed to Auburn on 2/6.

    Montravius Adams is the No. 3 interior defensive lineman in the country in the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings. 

    Adams could be a showstopper from the first day on campus at all five schools of his choice. Some offer more playing time earlier than others, but his skills would land him on the field in short order.

No. 9: Kenny Bigelow, Defensive Tackle, 6'3", 297 Lbs.

92 of 100

    The USC Trojans traveled across the country to Delaware to find Kenny Bigelow. He committed to the Trojans in November 2011 and has not wavered since.

    Bigelow is rated as the No. 2 defensive tackle in the country according to the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

    He should be able to be a role player early for the Trojans defensive line.

93 of 100

    UPDATE: Matthew Thomas committed to Florida State on 2/6:

    February 4 he announced he would sign with Alabama. 

    This has been a wild ride of a recruitment that finished back where it started like most expected. 

    Foster should sign with the Tide on Wednesday. 

No. 5: Su'a Cravens, Safety, 6'1", 205 Lbs.

96 of 100

    Su'a Cravens is a firm USC commit heading into the final week of recruiting. He is rated as the No. 1 safety in the country according to the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

    With losses coming in the secondary after last season for the Trojans, Cravens has a legitimate shot at early playing time in L.A. this fall.

No. 4: Laremy Tunsil, Offensive Tackle, 6'6", 295 Lbs.

97 of 100

    UPDATE: Laremy Tunsil committed to Ole Miss on 2/6.

    He is committed to Florida and will join a number of other playmakers in the secondary looking to continue the defensive excellence that Florida has found under Will Muschamp.

    Hargreaves won't start at corner right away, but he will see the field early for Florida next season.

    He signs with the Gators on signing day.

No. 2: Jaylon Smith, Outside Linebacker, 6'3", 218 Lbs.

99 of 100

    Jaylon Smith is a rangy outside linebacker firmly committed to Notre Dame. The Irish are in need of playmakers and new blood at linebacker after graduation losses in 2012.

    Smith can be the next star linebacker for the Irish. He has great range and coverage ability, and he is a beast off the edge in run support.

    Smith is rated as the No. 1 outside linebacker in the country according to the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

No. 1: Robert Nkemdiche, Defensive End, 6'4", 285 Lbs.
