Uncommitted four-star 2018 DT Tyler Friday said that Miami, Michigan, Penn State, Ohio State and Rutgers are the programs in most-constant contact with him.

While Friday (6'3/263) has had those five programs chattering his ear off, he has yet to trim down his offers to a list of finalists. Friday ranks as Scout.com's No. 61 overall prospect in the 2018 class, with outlet analyst Brian Dohn noting that the defensive tackle "runs well and can play laterally." Dohn is also high on his strength, quickness and length.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 LB Channing Tindall plans on making use of all five of his official visits.

Tindall (6'2/206) will be taking his official visits in November or December. He had actually planned on checking out the Gators when they take on Tennessee this weekend, but decided to hold off on it after Hurricane Irma made landfall, saying that "it didn't seem like the right thing to do." Rivals' No. 135 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle is most keen on South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Auburn and Florida State. All five of those programs are likely to receive official visits from Tindall before Signing Day.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 WR Isaah Crocker called his official visit to Nebraska over the weekend "absolutely amazing."

Rivals analyst Adam Gorney sees this as a two-team race between Nebraska -- whom he believes is setting the pace for the field when it comes to Crocker -- and Oregon. In addition to those two programs, Oregon State, Utah, UCLA and USC are all in the mix, here. Crocker (6'2/170) is not an out-and-out burner, but has turned himself into a true downfield threat even sans that extra gear. Rivals ranks him as the No. 97 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Rivals analyst Adam Gorney believes that uncommitted five-star 2018 WR Jalen Hall's choice will come down to Florida and USC.

"Hall has been close with the Trojans’ coaching staff and a lot of players there for a long while," Gorney writes, adding that "[i]f he decides to leave town, then joining Long Beach Poly (teammate) four-star quarterback Matt Corral in Gainesville might make sense." ESPN's Craig Haubert comps Hall (6'3/182) to former Texas A&M WR Josh Reynolds, particularly in terms of his ability to make contested catches, something that Reynolds was aces at during his time with the Aggies.

Rivals analyst Adam Gorney believes that uncommitted five-star 2018 WR Amon-Ra St. Brown's decision will come down to USC and Stanford.

On the Trojans' side of the coin, Gorney points to the fact that USC already has a commitment from five-star 2019 QB J.T. Daniels, a teammate of St. Brown at Mater Dei (California) High. As for the Trojans' top competition for the stud wideout's pledge, Stanford has the familial connection with older brother Osiris St. Brown already a member of the Cardinal. The younger St. Brown ranks as Rivals' No. 4 overall prospect in the 2018 class. He crushed the camp circuit during the offseason.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 CB Julian Barnett is hoping to make unofficial visits to Notre Dame, Georgia and Clemson before year's end.

Barnett (6'1/185) has been doing his fair share of moving and shaking in the early going this season, having taken unofficial trips Michigan State and Ohio State over the past two weekends. Unlike the Buckeyes, the Spartans have already offered to Barnett. He said that they were "high" in his mental hierarchy at this stage. Scout.com ranks the Belleville, Michigan, native as the No. 124 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 DE Ronnie Perkins took an official visit to Texas this past weekend.

"It’s a great program and they are doing a lot of good rebuilding," Perkins said. While the 6-foot-4, 260-pounder has now other officials scheduled at this juncture, he is interested in taking his allotment or close to it before he signs with his program of choice. Oklahoma, USC and Michigan are in the mix along with the Longhorns. Rivals ranks Perkins as the No. 243 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 G Chris Murray would like to take official visits to Utah, Notre Dame and Stanford.

Utah was one of Murray's earlier suitors and has remained on his trail since he was a junior at Mater Dei High (California). While the Utes are a swinging contender for the 6-foot-3, 290-pounder's pledge, matters have yet to truly solidify -- Murray has yet to decide on a commitment date and has indicated that there will be other programs in the mix beyond Utah, Notre Dame and Stanford. Rivals ranks him as the No. 17 guard prospect in the 2018 class.

Uncommitted five-star 2018 T Jackson Carman has gotten into a Twitter beef with ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit.

So, here's an interesting one for your Wednesday. The impetus for all of this came about when Carman -- Ohio State's top target in the 2018 class -- tweeted that the Buckeyes needed to bench J.T. Barrett in favor of redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins. Herbstreit subsequently caught wind of this, tweeting out, "Can someone get a memo to ALL RECRUITS of EVERY SCHOOL to please keep quiet and worry about their own teams. Not a good look for these guys." Carman then retweeted Herbstreit, writing, "Pretty sure I wouldn't have any problems in Dabo Swinney's or Clay Helton's locker room for my OPINION on OSU's qb issues." This whole kerfuffle makes for fun mid-week copy, but we're guessing that none of it will have any impact on Carman's actual Signing Day decision. Though you never know.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 DT Trevor Trout will take an official visit to UCLA.

Trout (6'3/295) will check out UCLA's wares when the Bruins tango with Colorado on September 30. This is the only official visit that he currently has on the docket. Outside of the Bruins, USC, Miami, Alabama, Georgia and Missouri are all contending for his pledge. 247Sports' Crystal Ball sees this as a slam dunk for the Tigers when all is said and done. As for his on-field work, Scout.com's Greg Powers refers to Trout as "a tank in the middle of his defense." Powers' outlet ranks him as the No. 141 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Rivals analysts Chad Simmons and Woody Wommack pass along that Tennessee and Mississippi State "have made (uncommitted four-star 2018 T Jerome) Carvin a priority."

Carvin (6'4/305) has yet to schedule his official visits for the fall, but you can reasonably expect both the Volunteers and Bulldogs to host him once he's locked his logistical plans into place. Rivals ranks Carvin as the No. 20 tackle prospect in the 2018 class. He hails from Cordova, Tennessee.

Rivals analysts Chad Simmons and Woody Wommack note that "Auburn seems to have a little momentum behind the scenes" for uncommitted four-star 2018 T Dylan Wonnum.

Wonnum's choice is looking like it will come down to South Carolina and Auburn. The Gamecocks do have one clear familial advantage, as Wonnum's older brother, TE D.J. Wonnum signed with South Carolina as part of the 2016 class. Rivals ranks the 6-foot-5, 293-pound younger Wonnum as the No. 100 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.

Rivals analysts Chad Simmons and Woody Wommack believe that uncommitted four-star 2018 DE Adam Anderson's decision will come down to Georgia and Alabama.

Anderson (6'6/225) has jumped around in his recruitment, at various points committing to Georgia and LSU. As of now, his pledge is currently in the air. While Simmons and Wommack see this as a likely competition between the Tide and the Bulldogs, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State and Tennessee are also contenders lurking in the weeds for Anderson's pledge. Rivals ranks the Rome, Georgia, native as the No. 74 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 WR Khalil Shakir named Boise State, Illinois and Arizona State as his three favorite programs.

Shakir (5'11/171) cited the strong communication from that trio of programs and noted that Boise State and Illinois have been recruiting hardest. BYU, Arizona and Washington State are also in play, though further back in the mix. A standout during the spring camp circuit, Scout.com ranks Shakir as the No. 255 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Uncommitted five-star 2018 DE Micah Parsons indicated that he continues to monitor Penn State despite his earlier decommitment.

Parsons (6'3/215) committed to Penn State in February before reopening his recruitment in April. The Nittany Lions might currently be sitting behind the likes of Ohio State (whom he took an official visit to on Saturday) and Nebraska (who will receive an official visit in October), but Parsons is planning an unofficial trip to Happy Valley this coming weekend. Said the blue-chipper, "I just want to go up and see it. Penn State has been dominating." Scout.com ranks him as the No. 5 overall prospect in the 2018 class. Ohio State should probably be considered the favorite to land his services when all is said and done.
