Uncommitted five-star 2019 ATH Bru McCoy released a list of the eight finalists for his pledge.

All sorts of blue chip programs on McCoy's list, which is made up of Alabama, Oklahoma, Florida State, Oregon, Texas, USC, UCLA and Washington. Just what position the 6-foot-3, 215-pound athlete ends up playing at the collegiate level will depend on which programs he sides with, as he's being recruited both as a potential defender -- Texas likes him as a pass rusher, for instance -- and a potential receiver. Regardless of what position he ultimately plays, he's a tough, competitive prospect. On the 247Sports composite board, McCoy checks into proceedings at No. 21 overall in the 2019 class.

Uncommitted four-star 2020 QB Harrison Bailey is taking an unofficial visit to Tennessee this weekend.

Bailey (6'4/220) won't be making a commitment until the fall -- and that's at the earliest -- but he's had a few low-key visits of late. Prior to this weekend's trip to Knoxville, he skipped out to the Midwest for unofficial visits to Big Ten rivals Michigan and Ohio State. Alabama is another program to watch in this race. Rivals ranks Bailey as the No. 24 overall prospect in the 2020 class.

Arkansas redshirt freshman WR Maleek Barkley transferred to Montana State.

Barkley (5'10/175) embarked on his collegiate journey with Arkansas as a three-star running back recruit in the 2017 class. After redshirting as a true freshman, he had been making the transition to wide receiver this offseason. As Montana State plies its trade in the FCS, Barkley will be eligible to play immediately with his new teams during the upcoming campaign. He still has four years eligibility remaining to his fair name.

Uncommitted three-star 2019 WR Jamie Nance is taking unofficial visits to Nebraska and Notre Dame this weekend.

Nance (6'0/160) is currently in Lincoln for Nebraska's Friday Night Lights camp and barbecue. Then it'll be off to South Bend to check out Notre Dame on Saturday. Both of these visits are of the unofficial variety. He had his first official visit last weekend, when he traveled to Fort Worth to check out TCU's offerings. Trips to Ole Miss and Mississippi State could be on the docket for later this summer. Rivals ranks Nance as the No. 6 prospect in the state of Oklahoma.

Pitt redshirt sophomore WR Ruben Flowers transferred to Independence Community College.

Flowers (6'3/201) announced that he would be moving on from the Panthers in mid-May. Rather than try his hand with another FBS outfit -- he would have had to sit out the coming season had he taken that route -- he's instead opting to bounce it down to the JUCO level. While he failed to catch a pass during his lone active season at Pitt, he remains a talented wideout. Rivals ranked him as the No. 225 overall prospect in the 2016 class. He could resurface in the FBS ranks after the coming season.

Uncommitted three-star 2019 RB Taron Madison said that Washington, Washington State, Oregon State and Utah have stood out to him thus far.

That would be half of Madison's total offer list right there. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder believes that he could see additional tangible interest from USC, UCLA and Miami. While Madison said that he hopes to make his pledge by the end of August, his first scheduled official visit will not be occurring until Sept. 29, when he heads to Pullman to soak up the atmosphere for Washington State's showdown with Utah. The 247Sports composite board ranks the Banning, California, native as the No. 38 running back prospect in the 2019 class.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 WR Darren Jones said that he has not been visiting programs of late and does not plan to do so over the summer.

Jones (6'8/185) is certainly taking his recruitment from a different angle than most prospects. Not only has he essentially shunted the visit process, he's not taking part in any offseason camps. This is because he has been spending much of his focus on AAU basketball. He's received offers in both sports (eight in football, four in basketball). On the gridiron side of the ledger, the 247Sports composite board slots him into the fray at No. 197 overall for the 2019 cycle. Nebraska and Utah both paid him visits during the spring. He indicated that he'll be releasing a top-five list following his senior season at Cajon High in San Bernardino, but that he may not actually make a final decision between his two sports until basketball's signing day next April. His journey into collegiate action should be a fun follow over the coming months.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 ATH Makiya Tongue plans on releasing a top-three list in the near future.

While Tongue has not tipped his hand on what teams, specifically, will be making his final cut, there's plenty of reading between the lines to be done here. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder has taken official visits to Georgia, Arizona State and Texas this offseason, with Mississippi State, Florida and Alabama potential sleepers to watch in Tongue's recruitment. Rivals ranks him as the No. 21 "athlete" prospect in the 2019 class. He could potentially play either receiver or defensive back at the collegiate level depending on which program ultimately lands him.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 LB Laiatu Latu released a top-eight list consisting of Alabama, Georgia, Cal, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Washington.

We'll see if the weight of SEC big boys Alabama and Georgia might be able to sway Latu, who hails from Carmichael, California, but this is realistically shaping up to be a Pac-12 dogfight. In part due to proximity, all four of the California teams in question -- Cal, Stanford, UCLA and USC -- have received visits from the linebacker this offseason, with Cal and Stanford both drawing multiple trips. On the 247Sports composite board for the 2019 class, the 6-foot-5, 242-pound Lato slides into proceedings at a solid No. 175 overall.

Uncommitted three-star 2019 CB Myles Brooks said that he has been "talking to the (Arkansas) coaching staff a lot."

Brooks (6'2/190) committed to Baylor in early May, but that pledge didn't last too long. He reopened his recruitment on Tuesday. Arkansas, Louisiana Tech and SMU have all been pushing hard for him this offseason, but the Razorbacks look to have emerged as the team to beat in this race. Brooks said that HC Chad Morris and staff are intrigued by his physical style of play.

Uncommitted four-star 2020 S Darius Snow is taking an unofficial visit to Notre Dame on Thursday.

Snow (6'2/212) has a ways to go in his recruitment, but he's been diligent on the visit front early on. Prior to Thursday's trip to South Bend, he earlier this week took an unofficial visit to Michigan State, where his uncle (Percy Snow) played in the 1980's. He's additionally checked out Alabama, Georgia and Clemson in June. Rivals analyst Nick Krueger refers to Snow as "a smart and heady player [who] brings a bit of swag to his game" and notes that he's been a strong performer on the spring camp circuit to date. Krueger's outlet ranks the Carrollton, Texas, native as the No. 121 overall prospect in the 2020 class.

Uncommitted five-star 2019 ATH Quavaris Crouch took an unofficial visit to Michigan on Friday.

The Wolverines are going to have to put some muscle into their recruitment if they're to land the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Crouch. While Rivals analyst Adam Friedman considers Michigan a real contender for his pledge, he passes along in the same breath that the Charlotte, North Carolina, native is most likely to opt in with a program from the southern portion of the country. He ticks off Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee and Florida State as schools to watch in that vain. While there's no doubting Crouch's talent -- he ranks as Rivals' No. 5 overall prospect in the 2019 class -- just what position he ends up playing at the collegiate level remains an open question. He could potentially be utilized as a running back, linebacker or defensive end. ESPN sees his biggest upside coming on the defensive side of the equation.

Uncommitted four-star 2020 CB R.J. Mickens is planning to take unofficial visits to Clemson, Ohio State and Oklahoma this summer.

Clemson and Ohio State are going to be first up on the docket for Mickens, with a later trip to Norman to check out the Sooners set for late July. The 6-foot, 187-pounder is also hoping to make it back to Notre Dame after visiting the Irish in the spring. In Rivals' shiny new rankings for the 2020 class, Mickens lands as the No. 30 overall prospect. It's early yet and his recruitment figures to take a more concrete form over the winter. For now, he's just sifting through his options.

Uncommitted five-star 2020 QB DJ Uiagalelei said that his recent trip to Clemson was the best visit he's taken to date.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Uiagalelei was just last week named Rivals' No. 1 overall prospect in the 2020 class. He offers an absolute rocket launcher of an arm and was out-throwing current collegiate standouts such as Jake Fromm, Will Grier and Tua Tagovailoa while taking part in Steve Clarkson's QB Retreat at the end of May. Clemson has landed five-star signal-callers in each of the past two recruiting cycles in Hunter Johnson and Trevor Lawrence. Johnson transferred to Northwestern last week.

Uncommitted three-star 2019 QB Cornelius Brown said that he almost committed to Vanderbilt this past weekend.

Brown (6'5/180) was on campus for an unofficial visit on Friday and that very nearly did the trick in sealing up his pledge. He indicated that he wasn't quite ready to take the full plunge, but has now moved the Commodores up to No. 1 in his mental hierarchy. While the Calera, Alabama, native was upfront in his admiration for what HC Derek Mason's building at Vanderbilt, he admitted that he's hoping to receive serious interest from programs such as Alabama -- he'll be attending a camp in Tuscaloosa this week -- in the near future. The 247Sports composite board drops him into the fray as the No. 50 prospect in the state.
