Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger forwards that uncommitted four-star 2018 WR Brennan Eagles is in play to earn a fifth star from the outlet.

Krueger believes that strong work during the offseason camp circuit could be enough to level Eagles up to full five-star status. He got that process started by logging the top overall Nike+ Rating at The Opening regional in Orlando last month. At that camp, he registered a 4.51-second run through the 40-yard dash and a healthy 37-inch vertical jump. Among the programs the 6-foot-3, 214-pounder is currently considering, Georgia, Texas, LSU, Oklahoma, UCLA, Florida, Florida State, USC, TCU and Ohio State. You can reasonably expect that list to be pared down as he continues to work through his recruitment this spring and summer. Rivals currently ranks him as the No. 33 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle.

Uncommitted three-star 2018 QB M.J. Rivers was named the QB MVP at The Opening regional in Dallas.

Rivers has had himself a relatively quiet recruitment to date, with only Iowa State tossing him an offer, but we might see an uptick in interest following his strong showing at the regional in Dallas. The 6-foot-4, 212-pound dual-threat gunslinger hails from Frisco, Texas.

Uncommitted three-star 2018 S Ely Doyle indicated that UCLA, Utah, Washington State, UNLV and Northwestern are several programs that intrigue him.

A native of Mission Hills, California, Doyle is not spreading the net too far from his home base. UCLA is an interesting one to watch, here. Bishop Alemany High School HC James Washington played safety for the Bruins back in the day. While Rivals assigns the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Doyle a three-star grade, Scout.com is more generous, tossing four stars his way and landing him on their 2018 master list at No. 235 overall. As for a commitment timeline, Doyle said that he will release a list of his top seven programs before the start of his senior season, with a pledge likely to come after the completion of that campaign.

Uncommitted four-star WR Erik Ezukanma indicated that he could make a pledge soon.

Ezukanma told Scout.com that he will be making a commitment soon, but wouldn't put a specific timetable on it. Scout's Greg Powers writes that the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder's "combination of size and deep playmaking ability makes him one of the top outside receiver prospects in [Texas]." Indeed, Powers' outlet ranks Ezukanma as the No. 5 wideout in the state, No. 129 overall. Texas A&M, TCU, Texas Tech, Ole Miss and Florida are among the schools the Fort Worth native is considering. He is fresh off a visit to the Red Raiders and will be checking out LSU in the coming weeks.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson will visit UCLA this weekend.

You can expect Thompson-Robinson to begin whittling down his options relatively soon. That should come following visits to UCLA (this weekend) and Michigan (some time in April). Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and potentially Alabama could also see visits down the road. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound gunslinger ranks as Rivals' No. 54 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle. His upcoming season at Bishop Gorman (Nevada) will be his first as the team's starting quarterback, as Tate Martell had been guiding the ship up until he inked with Ohio State on National Signing Day last month.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 WR Terrace Marshall Jr. name-checked six schools of interest.

Marshall is intrigued by LSU, Texas, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Oregon and Miami. He will continue to monitor how the Longhorns come together under new HC Tom Herman, telling Rivals, "I’m waiting to see how it’s going to turn out this season and that’s going to mean a lot." The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 22 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle. He already plays with size that should make mouths water.

Scout.com's Brandon Hoffman called uncommitted three-star 2018 WR Khalil Shakir "one of the standouts at the adidas 7v7 National Championships last weekend."

The bulk of the interest for California native Shakir is coming from the Pac-12 and Mountain West, with Colorado, UCLA, Washington State, Nevada and San Jose State among the programs that have tossed offers his way. The 5-foot-11, 171-pounder indicated that he is particularly keen on UCLA and Washington State at this juncture. Rivals ranks him as the No. 76 wide receiver prospect in the 2018 class.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 DE Tyler Baylor pointed to Kentucky, Pittsburgh, Maryland and Rutgers as four programs catching his eye.

Baylor plans on taking a visit to Kentucky in the coming weeks and is also considering possible visits to Penn State and Pitt. He ranks as Rivals' No. 13 weakside defensive end prospect in the 2018 cycle. Last summer, outlet recruiting analyst Adam Friedman noted that Baylor "possesses [a] natural athleticism and willingness to learn."

Uncommitted four-star 2018 CB Myles Sims will visit Michigan this weekend.

"[The Wolverines] like my versatility and they said they could see corner, nickel, safety and me playing all over," Sims explained of a potential fit in Ann Arbor. "I have no problem with that role I just prefer corner as my position." The 6-foot-3, 173-pounder, nicknamed "Spider," ranks as Rivals' No. 51 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle.

Uncommitted five-star 2018 DT Taron Vincent will visit Ohio State from March 17-April 4.

This visit is a bit lengthier than normal, as Vincent will be on his spring break from IMG Academy and will have additional time to check out what the Buckeyes are offering. Florida State is the other program battling it out for the 6-foot-3, 285-pounder's heart. Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman relays that Vincent may well make his choice (one way or another) before he returns to school to finish up the spring semester. Friedman's outlet ranks him as the No. 21 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 CB Asante Samuel named Alabama, Florida State, Miami, LSU and Ohio State as his top-five.

Auburn and South Carolina piqued his interest last summer, but it looks like they have fallen by the wayside. Samuel plans on making his commitment early in the summer, setting D-Day for June 2. Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy sees the 5-foot-10, 164-pounder committing to Florida State. Samuel ranks as the outlet's No. 24 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.

Uncommitted five-star 2018 S Tyreke Johnson counted Florida, Georgia, UCLA and LSU among his favorite programs.

USC and Stanford have also piqued Johnson's interest, with FAU a much longer shot but still in play for the pledge. The 6-foot-1, 177-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 10 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. He is unlikely to make a commitment before he wraps up his senior season at Trinity International (Florida).

Uncommitted five-star 2018 WR Amon-Ra St. Brown is trying to put together a visit to Michigan.

While St. Brown has yet to cobble together a list of his top programs, in addition to Michigan, Ohio State could receive a visit later this offseason. He additionally pointed to USC as a program which intrigues him. UCLA is also in the picture, here. The 6-foot-1, 187-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 12 overall prospect in the 2018 class. He logged a 60-1229-21 receiving line during his junior campaign at Mater Dei (California).

Uncommitted three-star 2018 RB Johnny Adams said that he was "amazed" by his weekend visit to Iowa for their junior day.

Adams called it "one of the greatest college visits I’ve ever been to." The Hawkeyes have yet to actually extend an offer to the 5-foot-11, 187-pound back, but would like to continue to forge a relationship with him. Rivals ranks him as the No. 22 running back prospect in the 2018 class, with outlet analyst Josh Helmholdt writing in mid-February that Adams "looks like he lives in the weight room."

Michigan State four-star 2018 verbal WR commit Joseph Scates has reopened his recruitment.

Just about a week ago, Scates was saying that he was "still solid" with the Spartans. Not so much anymore. Stay tuned to see if Alabama had something to do with this. The 6-foot-4, 180-pounder received an offer from the Tide after visiting them over the weekend. On the 247Sports composite, Scates ranks as the No. 129 overall prospect in the 2018 class.
