Uncommitted four-star 2018 LB Cameron Williams is planning on spring visits to Missouri, Minnesota, Georgia and Clemson.

One slight wrench in this equation -- none of the above teams have actually extended offers to Williams as of yet. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder has been consistently in touch with Minnesota and Missouri, though, always a good sign for a potential offer down the road. Williams ranks as Rivals' No. 195 overall prospect in the 2019 class. He'll be running track this spring in addition to focusing on his ongoing football recruitment.

In their latest rankings release, Rivals named uncommitted five-star 2019 ATH Quavaris Crouch the No. 1 prospect in the class.

Not much of a bump up for Crouch, who had been sitting at No. 2 previously, but he's the new top dog nonetheless. The outlet's previous No. 1 prospect in the 2019 class was USC QB J.T. Daniels, but that was out the window after Daniels reclassified for 2018. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Crouch has shined as both a running back and a defender -- he played defensive end as a sophomore in 2016 and linebacker as a junior in 2017 -- but likely projects as a defender for the collegiate ranks, particularly now that he's started to gain a feel for it. Alabama, Clemson and Georgia are among those pursuing the Charlotte native at this early juncture.

Uncommitted five-star 2019 ATH Bru McCoy is hoping to make spring visits to Oklahoma and Alabama.

McCoy is one of the true two-way prospects in the 2019 class, as he's considered an elite potential player at both wide receiver and outside linebacker. He told 247 Sports he doesn't want to take any officials this spring, but does want to visit Oklahoma and Alabama's spring game. He also notes he wants to visit Michigan at some point, but probably not for their spring contest. He ranks as the top athlete in 247 Sports composite rankings, and the eighth best prospect overall.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 edge-rusher Brandon Smith will begin to take more visits after his basketball season.

Smith ranks fourth among weakside defensive ends on 247 Sports composite rankings, and 35th overall. He's recently made visits to Clemson and Virginia, and his summer visit list included Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Penn State, Ohio State, Miami, Tennessee and Notre Dame, but for future trips are yet to be set.He was also recently offered by Michigan, and he plans on visiting the school to learn more about the Wolverines as well.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 DB Kenyatta Watson will make another trip to visit Notre Dame.

Watson was a visitor to the Irish during their Junior Day, and he'll make an official visit to the school on either April 8 or April 13. He's also planning on taking unofficial visits to Michigan, Texas and USC. 247 Sports rates him as the 13th best safety in the class, but other recruiting sites like Rivals believe the 6-foot-27, 177-pound defender profiles best at cornerback.

While ranking Fort Hays State DT Nathan Shepherd among the best non-FBS prospects in the 2018 draft class, NFLDraftScout write that he might require a "redshirt year."

That's concerning, because as they point out, Shepherd will turn 25 next year, so this is not one of the younger prospects or anything close. Still, he's very intriguing, and he really stood out working against the quality guards of the Senior Bowl. "He stood out immediately at the Senior Bowl with his nimble lower body and powerful upper body before breaking his hand during the second practice," they write. "Shepherd might require a "redshirt" NFL season, which isn’t ideal for a player who turns 25 years old as a rookie, but his exciting traits are promising for a patient coaching staff."

Four-star 2020 QB DJ Uiagalelei told 247 Sports that Oregon and Utah are the two schools that are recruiting him the hardest.

"I like Oregon a lot and they have been in steady contact," Uiagalelei said. "I like the coaches there. Coach (Marcus) Arroyo and all the coaches, it's a great staff they've put together. Utah has been recruiting me hard, too. I have an uncle that's coaching out there and I talk with coach Troy Taylor, the offensive coordinator, a lot. I like what he's doing over there. I can see myself fitting into that offense." Uiagalelei is also considering USC, Florida, Louisville and Tennessee, and is planning on taking visits this spring. He's rated the third best pro-style quarterback on 247 Sports composite rankings.

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy writes that uncommitted four-star 2019 WR Cam Coleman is "capable of making any cornerback look silly."

Coleman (5'11/165) is in Orlando for a Rivals 3 Stripe camp regional this week, where he'll have a prime opportunity to push toward the spotlight. Cassidy refers to him as "among the best athletes in the Southeast." At this juncture, Coleman holds offers from just eight programs -- headlined by Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin and Missouri -- but that list could grow rapidly if he can shine on the camp circuit. Rivals ranks him as the No. 114 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Uncommitted three-star 2019 QB Taisun Phommachanh said that Michigan, Florida State, UConn, Penn State, TCU and Virginia have all been pushing for his pledge.

Phommachanh (6'4/210) is eyeing potential spring visits to Florida State, Clemson and LSU as he sorts through his options. Rivals analyst Adam Friedman tagged Florida State and Penn State as two programs, in particular, to watch for his pledge. On the Rivals board for the 2019 class, the signal-caller ranks as the No. 3 prospect in the state of Connecticut. Rankings at this stage in the cycle should not be considered static, as player standings will shift -- sometimes significantly -- as we progress through the offseason camp circuit.

Uncommitted three-star 2019 QB Ryan Hilinski will be taking unofficial visits to Ole Miss, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina and Duke over the next week.

In order to help facilitate this busy week, Hilinski will be checking out Tennessee and Georgia on the same day. The Orange, California, native additionally plans on a trip to Eugene for Oregon's spring game, though mercifully for his packed immediate schedule, that won't be taking place until late April. The 6-foot-3, 218-pounder made noticeable developmental strides during his junior year. While he currently slots as a three-star recruit on the 247Sports composite board, he's close enough to four-star ranking that a strong camp circuit could possibly do the trick in increasing his profile. Hilinski is the younger brother of Washington State QB Tyler Hilinski, who tragically committed suicide earlier this winter.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 S Litchfield Ajavon will be taking unofficial visits to Notre Dame, Michigan, Wisconsin and Penn State in March.

Ajavon (6'0/185) is planning for all these visits during his spring break at Alexandria (Va.) Episcopal, which will run from March 3-19. He indicated that he will be making his commitment no later than May 25. Rivals' Adam Friedman sees Notre Dame as a clear front-runner in this race, noting that the Irish have been "hitting all the right buttons" to this point. Ajavon ranks as the outlet's No. 79 overall prospect in the 2019 class. He's also one of the fastest prospects in the class.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 T John Olmstead said that he's "taking a close look" at Minnesota, Notre Dame and Wisconsin.

Olmstead (6'6/285) explained that that trio of programs has been recruiting him hardest to date. He also passed along that he's received a fair amount of interest from SEC programs, specifically ticking off LSU and Ole Miss as notables. Minnesota might be the most intriguing possibility, here. The Gophs' work in the 2018 cycle made an impact on him and he said that the staff is excited for the possibilities to come with the 2019 class. Olmstead would be a jewel in that 2019 class if HC P.J. Fleck can seal the deal. He ranks as Rivals' No. 54 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger believes that Texas A&M remains a contender for uncommitted four-star 2019 QB Grant Gunnell.

Gunnell (6'6/207) backed off a pledge to the Aggies on Valentine's Day (love is a fickle mistress), but Krueger doesn't see this as a death blow for HC Jimbo Fisher and company. That's because in Fisher's short tenure with the program, Texas A&M has already pulled off the tricky three-step of picking up a commitment, losing that commitment and then later regaining that commitment. Specifically, they did so with four-star S Leon O'Neal and four-star DE Bobby Brown, both of whom put pen to paper with the program on National Signing Day earlier this month. If they're to regain Gunnell's pledge, they'll be fending off the likes of LSU (whom he is visiting this weekend), Arkansas, TCU and Ohio State, among others. Rivals ranks him as the No. 63 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

247Sports' Kevin Sinclair reports that uncommitted four-star 2019 T Quinn Carroll is taking an unofficial visit to Notre Dame this weekend.

Per Sinclair, Carroll will be hanging out at Notre Dame through Sunday. This is not his first trip to South Bend, as he previously visited the program in the fall. The 6-foot-6, 280-pound native of Minneapolis also earlier took trips to home-state program Minnesota, Ohio State and Virginia Tech. On the 247Sports composite, Carroll ranks as the No. 55 overall prospect in the 2019 class. He possesses a tough mindset and approach, with technical work still needed in terms of his hand placement, among other aspects of his game.

Uncommitted five-star 2019 CB Derek Stingley Jr. received an offer from Clemson.

Stingley (6'1/185) already has a whole bushel of offers from some of the top programs in the country, with the Tigers adding to that list. The corner earlier released a top 10 consisting of Oklahoma, Penn State, LSU, Florida, Texas A&M, Stanford, Texas, Georgia, Alabama and Michigan. The former LSU pledge is an instinctive, tough-nosed prospect who will only benefit from added functional weight as he trucks toward his senior season at The Dunham School in Baton Rouge. Rivals ranks Stingley as the No. 11 overall prospect in the 2019 class.
