Four-star 2017 TE Kendrick James decommited from Baylor.

"Due to the departure of Coach Briles," James wrote on Twitter, "I'd like to open my recruiting and decommit from Baylor." This comes just hours after Baylor announced Briles' firing. The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder out of Waco had himself an easy hometown decision with the Bears initially, but that is out the window now. He had previously received offers from Arkansas, Illinois and Miami (among others). James is the first Bears commitment to back out. Others could follow in the coming days.

Scout.com national recruiting analyst Chad Simmons wrote that five-star 2018 QB Trevor Lawrence "will likely be Scout’s No. 1 prospect in 2018 when those rankings are released this summer."

"Lawrence plays at a level well beyond his years," Simmons wrote. "He has a big-league arm to go with his size (6' 5", 194 pounds), he makes great decisions, he throws with accuracy, and he is a winner (15–0 last season)." The analyst added this juicy nugget: "Lawrence has everything you look for in a quarterback and he has future NFL first-rounder written all over him." The Georgia native plans on making a commitment later this summer, according to Simmons, with Clemson, Georgia and Tennessee likely standing as front-runners while Florida and Oklahoma lurk in the shadows.

According to Scout.com national recruiting analyst Brian Dohn, five-star 2017 DE Chase Young's "speed around the edge made him nearly impossible to stop [at The Opening Regional Washington D.C.]."

"[Young] was also quick with his hands and he was able to mix in an array of moves," Dohn wrote. "At 6' 5", 226 pounds, his length also gives offensive linemen difficulties, and his flexibility and ability to get low allows him to win the leverage battle." The Hyattsville, Maryland, native has a predictable slew of offers from the likes of Ohio State, Alabama and Maryland (among others). Dohn notes that a commitment is not expected until after the stud defensive end completes his senior season.

Scout.com national recruiting analyst Greg Powers noted that five-star 2017 DT Marvin Wilson "dominates every camp and combine he attends."

To Powers' point, Wilson earned himself an invite to The Opening Finals after a strong performance in The Opening Houston regional. "The five-star has the size and quickness to be a versatile weapon up front, and offensive linemen have a hard time keeping him contained," Powers wrote. The 6-foot-4, 320-pounder has drawn offers from Alabama, LSU, Florida State, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M. Earlier this week, he indicated that Texas could figure strongly into his final commitment decision, but he first wants to see them win nine games (or thereabouts) in 2016.

Four-star 2017 T Andrew Vorhees has visited Oregon, UCLA and USC over the last month.

Vorhees hails from Kingsburg, California, and is drawing predictable interest from within the Pac-12. In addition to his recent visits to the Ducks, Bruins and Trojans, the 6-foot-6, 290-pounder plans on attending a camp at Stanford in June. A return visit to USC is lined up as well. After getting a taste of these schools unofficially, he is hoping to take his official visits in the fall. Scout.com's Greg Biggins notes that this offseason, Vorhees has "added size and strength while still looking lean."

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy noted that five-star 2017 WR Trevon Grimes "managed to stand out of a loaded receiver group in Miami [at the Rivals Camp Series regional]."

"[Grimes] lived up to his five-star billing by using his rare blend of size and speed to dominate a camp filled with highly regarded defensive backs," Cassidy wrote. The 6-foot-4, 196-pound receiver is considered a potential Ohio State leaner, but per the Rivals analyst, Florida has been in the midst of a strong recent push for arguably the No. 1 receiver in all the land (Rivals ranks him as the No. 3 overall prospect for 2017). Cassidy noted that "Grimes is a special talent who may not have an equal at the high school level."

Scout.com national recruiting analyst Chad Simmons believes that four-star 2017 WR Devonta Smith "could be a first-round NFL pick come 2020."

"[Smith] makes things look simple," Simmons wrote. "I watched him live twice this spring and he is explosive, he has excellent body control, his hands are reliable, and he is always one snap away from breaking the big one." The 6-foot-1, 160-pounder out of Louisiana is already drawing comparisons to Odell Beckham Jr. He had been committed to Georgia for a time, but he backed off that and Simmons notes that "Alabama is thought to be the front-runner with Florida State likely running No. 2."

Four-star 2017 RB Cam Akers released a list of the top 10 finalists for his commitment.

Mississippi native Akers included six SEC programs on his list, with Alabama (he had actually committed to Bama before nixing it in early March), LSU, Auburn, Georgia, Ole Miss and Tennessee making the cut. Ohio State, Michigan, FSU and Cal round out the 5-foot-11, 210-pounder's finalists. He is set for a visit to Georgia this weekend. Scout.com's Chad Simmons has described him as the "complete package," while Rivals ranks him as their No. 2 RB recruit in the country.

Four-star 2018 QB Cameron Rising plans on visiting at least five schools this summer.

Rising hopes to take visits to LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Houston and TCU in the coming months. The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder posted an eye-popping 40/1 TD/INT ratio during his sophomore season at Newbury Park High. In addition to the aforementioned five schools that Rising plans on visiting, Alabama, Oklahoma, Cal and Arizona State (among others) have made early offers. Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Gorney relays that no commitment should be expected in the near future.

Four-star 2017 LB Levi Jones visited UCLA and USC this spring.

Jones is a ways away from making a commitment proper -- he might not release a top-10 until after completing his senior season at Westlake High -- but that won't stop the chase. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder spoke of his visit to UCLA in strong terms, saying, "I really liked it up there; I love the coaches, the atmosphere, and the west coast vibe is nice." In addition to the two California schools, FSU, Florida, Texas and Texas A&M have also expressed interest in Rivals' No. 17 linebacking recruit for 2017.

Three-star 2017 WR Jafar Armstrong indicated that he is receiving heavy interest from both the Big Ten and Big 12.

"Northwestern came to one of my morning sessions and I did very well. They seemed very impressed," Armstrong said. "Kansas State has shown a lot of interest and in the past few weeks I have gotten a few cool edits from them. Iowa, I have gotten mail and been talking to the coaches a lot." The 6-foot-1, 185-pound wideout noted that he has "clicked" with the coaching staffs of those three teams. This summer, Armstrong -- Rivals No. 82 WR prospect for 2017 -- will be taking part in camps at both Iowa and Kansas State, as well as Oklahoma State. Michigan's satellite camp at Blue Springs High School (in Missouri) could also be in the cards for the Kansas native.

Scout.com national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu wrote that four-star 2017 CB Amir Riep was "outstanding" at The Opening Chicago.

Trieu had the pleasure of seeing Riep for the first time in the Chicago camp. He came away endlessly impressed. "He has length, very quick feet and great ball skills," Trieu wrote. "I saw him and [fellow four-star CB] Ambry Thomas back-to-back and they are, without question, among the best in the country." The 6-foot, 180-pound Riep has received strong interest from Michigan State and Ohio State (among others).

Five-star 2017 DT Marvin Wilson indicated that he is intrigued by Texas, but wants to see them win nine games this season.

Wilson stands as Rivals' No. 1 overall recruit for 2017, so HC Charlie Strong might want to try extra hard this coming season. "That’s all they have to do. They have to win. I would say nine wins," said the 6-foot-4, 320-pounder. "If they can make it to nine wins, they would be in the discussion big time, especially [for] a kid that grew up watching Texas." For reference's sake, the Longhorns went 5-7 last season.
May 24 - 5:30 PM

Four-star 2017 WR Jaylen Harris indicated that Alabama, Ohio State, Tennessee and Michigan State will make his top-10 finalist list.

"I don’t know who else, though. I’m going to try to take a few more visits like Penn State on (May) 21, then I’ll try to get out to Miami and Georgia," Harris said. Depending on time and monetary flexibility, the 6-foot-6, 192-pound wideout will also try for visits to LSU, Ole Miss, Arizona State and USC. He ranks as ESPN 300's No. 280 overall recruit for 2017, with the outlet noting that Harris is a "prototypical possession wide receiver with great body control and natural hands."
