Alabama four-star 2017 verbal JUCO CB commit Jhavonte Dean reopened his recruitment.

Dean had been committed to the Crimson Tide since late July, but even Nick Saban occasionally loses a few despite his iron grip on recruiting. An electric athlete who has brushed close to 4.30 in the 40-yard dash, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Dean ranks as Rivals' No. 8 JUCO prospect in the 2017 class. Miami, Utah and Arizona State are among those hoping to capitalize on Dean's newfound recruiting free agency with a week-and-a-half remaining before National Signing Day.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 RB Anthony McFarland is deciding between Miami and Maryland.

Alabama was also in his top-three as of early December, but it looks like we have ourselves a two-program race at this juncture. The 5-foot-8, 186-pounder did not play at Dematha Catholic High School (Maryland) this past season due to a broken leg. This could actually make him a steal for either the Hurricanes or Terrapins, if only because he might not have received quite the interest on the recruiting front that he might have otherwise seen had he been healthy. Scout.com's Brian Dohn calls McFarland a "physical, violent runner," one who possesses "the power to run between the tackles and the speed to get to the edge." Dohn's outlet ranks him as the No. 71 overall prospect in the 2017 class.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 S Todd Harris will take an official visit to Alabama this weekend.

Harris is fresh off an official visit to LSU, where he spoke with DB coach Corey Raymond about his potential fit with the Tigers. Said the 6-foot, 180-pounder, "Coach Raymond said I would be playing dime and safety, and that’s what I prefer." Now onward to his Alabama official. In addition to the Tigers and Crimson Tide, Harris is also considering potentially signing with TCU. Rivals ranks the Louisiana native as their No. 166 overall prospect in the 2017 class. He is expected to make his program decision public on National Signing Day.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 ATH Jaiden Woodbey named Oklahoma, USC, Ohio State and Nebraska as the four finalists for his pledge.

Woodbey had been holding out hope for an offer from Florida State, but that has yet to materialize. "It’s still pretty quiet. It’s just come to a point where I’ve been waiting too long for it," Woodbey said. The 6-foot-2, 197-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 45 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. Over the summer, outlet recruiting analyst Adam Gorney called Ohio State "an absolutely serious contender" for Woodbey's commitment.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 WR James Robinson will take an official visit to Ohio State this weekend.

Ohio State doesn't have too many holes in their current crop of 2017 pledges, but another stud wideout would be a nice add for the Buckeyes following Tyjon Lindsey's decision to decommit from the program earlier this month. Rivals actually ranked Robinson as a five-star prospect over the summer, propping him up as high as No. 22. He slid a fair bit by the time they released their final rankings earlier this week, where he ultimately landed at No. 105. At 6-foot-3, 198 pounds, Robinson already has the requisite size to handle the jump up to the collegiate level. Scout.com calls him "explosive" once he gets the ball in his hands. In addition to Ohio State, Ole Miss, Florida and Oklahoma are also in the running for his commitment.

Scout.com's Chad Simmons called uncommitted four-star 2019 WR Jadon Haselwood "a freak athlete."

Simmons calls Haselwood "one you want to follow and know," even at this early juncture in his recruitment. The analyst notes that he could develop into a stud on either offense or defense once he levels up to the college game. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder's early (very, very early) leader is Ohio State, followed up by Tennessee and Georgia.

Scout.com's Greg Biggins believes that uncommitted 2018 LB Jack Lamb could be in for a meteoric rise during the spring and summer camp circuit.

As things currently stand, Scout has yet to slap a star rating to Lamb's fair name. That figures to change in the coming months, with analyst Biggins writing that the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder "just oozes upside" before adding that he "plays both inside and outside 'backer and shows the athleticism to move around, play in space and could line up just about anywhere." Biggins believes that "what really sets him apart is his how well he moves for a tall, rangy kid who is a year young for his grade." Cal, UCLA and USC are among the programs showing early interest in Lamb. Should his stock take off as Biggins is expecting, those California squads figure to have their fair share of competition for his commitment.

Uncommitted three-star 2017 LB Daniel Green took an official visit to Utah this past weekend.

Green had been a member of USC's recruiting class up until his December decommitment. Having recalibrated his sights, the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder is now set to charge into the final stretch run before National Signing Day. In addition to this recent Utah official, Green also has official visits set for Kansas State and Oregon State later this month. All three of the Utes, Wildcats and Beavers will be making in-home visits to the linebacker before National Signing Day.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 WR Nico Collins saw a drop of 61 spots in the final release of Rivals' rankings for the 2017 class.

Collins was swimming with the sharks over the summer, slotting into Rivals' master list at a lofty No. 21. He was unable to hang in those waters, though, and has been dropped all the way down to No. 120. "Collins, who still boasts amazing hands, struggled to create separation from top-level defensive backs," explained Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy, who adds that the 6-foot-5, 193-pounder "had a quiet All-Star season." Cassidy sees Collins ultimately signing with either Michigan or Georgia come National Signing Day on February 1.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 CB Demmodore Lenoir does not plan on making a commitment prior to National Signing Day.

Mr. Lenoir has himself a busy travel schedule over the next two weeks, as he will be taking an official visit to Nebraska this coming weekend and has a scheduled official with Mississippi State for the following weekend. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder hails from Los Angeles, but told Scout.com that USC and UCLA haven't been pushing hard for his commitment of late. No worries for Lenoir, though. "I'm not afraid to leave home and I like the options I have right now," he said. The former Oregon commit ranks as Scout's No. 87 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle. It should be noted that despite his November decommitment, the Ducks are not out of the running for his National Signing Day signature.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 DE Jarez Parks saw a drop of 71 spots in the release of Rivals' final rankings for the current cycle.

Egads. Parks had climbed as high as 22nd on Rivals' master list at one point, but he has steadily dropped back to 47 and finishes out as the outlet's No. 118 overall prospect in the 2017 class. "Parks, who still boasts a high upside, lacks upper body strength," Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy explained. "He'll need to develop in a college weight program and become a better tackler." Florida State and Alabama are the two heavyweights swinging for his pledge.

Uncommitted four-star WR Oliver Martin has taken official visits to Iowa, Notre Dame and Michigan State.

Martin's options extend beyond just the Hawkeyes, Irish and Spartans, though, as Hawk Central's Matthew Bain is reporting that the 6-foot-1, 192-pound wideout will be receiving in-home visits from both UCLA HC Jim Mora and Ohio State HC Urban Meyer this week. Both schools are expected to extend offers to Martin. Scout.com ranks the Iowa City native as their No. 216 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle, referring to him as a "very skilled, technical wideout." Auburn, Florida and Michigan are also in the hunt for Martin's pledge.

Uncommitted three-star 2017 WR Gavin Holmes took an official visit to Arizona State.

"I really trust that the coaching staff [at Arizona State] would help me get to where I want to go," Holmes said, "and I just have great relationships with all of them and I felt at home." The 5-foot-11, 178-pounder had been committed to Iowa over the summer, but reopened his recruitment this past fall. Holmes -- a native of Justin, Texas -- will be taking an official visit Baylor next weekend. Notre Dame, Nebraska and Oklahoma are also possible landing spots for Scout.com's No. 88 wideout in the 2017 class.

Uncommitted five-star 2017 WR Joseph Lewis will make two visits to USC before National Signing Day.

Lewis will be taking an unofficial visit to the Trojans this coming weekend, with his official trip slated for the weekend of January 27. "I want to talk to the coaches and hang out with most of the commits there. I just want to see what USC is really about," said the 6-foot-2, 207-pounder. While Lewis won't be publicly deciding upon his program until National Signing Day, all indications are that the choice will come down to USC or Nebraska. Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell predicted last week that Lewis will ultimately end up siding with the Trojans. An explosive athlete, he has the talent to contribute immediately with whichever program he settles upon.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 LB Levi Jones called Florida the leader for his pledge.

Jones took an official visit to Florida over the weekend. It apparently made the requisite impression, as he is now gaga over the Gators. It helps that current defensive coordinator Randy Shannon coached his father, Robert Jones, at Miami back in the day. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker -- Scout.com's No. 189 overall prospect for 2017 -- will be investigating Florida State, USC and UCLA over the coming weeks, so while Florida has a nice foothold here, they shouldn't be considered a lock to bring Jones into the fold.
