Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman tagged uncommitted four-star 2018 T Penei Sewall as a standout performer in the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp series.

Sewall was denied OL MVP honors at the Los Angeles camp he attended, but only because three-star T Chris Murray -- who Friedman viewed as the best overall offensive line performer in the series -- was just a little better. Friedman writes that the 6-foot-5, 340-pounder (Rivals' No. 79 overall prospect for 2018) "lived up to his billing, dominating opponents with his size and athleticism." He has taken recent visits to Alabama and Oklahoma, but has yet to lock down a timeline for when he will make his eventual commitment.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman notes that uncommitted four-star 2018 T Rasheed Walker's "progress over the last two years has been fantastic."

"He’s much stronger in the upper body and more patient and disciplined pass blocking," Friedman explains. The 6-foot-6, 350-pounder's strong work during the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in New Jersey earlier this spring earned him an invitation to the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge. He ranks as the outlet's No. 209 overall player for the 2018 cycle.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman notes that uncommitted four-star 2018 G William Barnes is "[o]ne of the more polished offensive linemen from a technique standpoint."

Barnes took part in the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in Orlando and absolutely dominated, with Friedman writing that the 6-foot-4, 291-pounder was "by far" the best lineman on hand at the camp. Barnes predictably came away with OL MVP honors for his work in Orlando. He ranks as Rivals' No. 58 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. Friedman believes that the Apopka, Florida, native will stick in-state with Florida, Miami or Florida State when he makes his commitment.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 ILB Chad Bailey plans on visiting LSU for a camp this June.

LSU has yet to offer to Bailey, but he said that he believes they will do so later this offseason. Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger notes that the 6-foot, 235-pounder " has been strong in his camp appearances this spring, where he’s held his own against slot receivers and running backs in pass coverage." He adds that "the main factor that’s seemingly kept his recruitment from exploding has presumably been trepidation over his experience as an inside linebacker." Bailey ranks as Rivals' No. 160 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. In addition to his planned LSU visit, he is also kicking around a potential summer camp visit to Alabama.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman notes that uncommitted four-star 2019 T Darnell Wright excelled at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in Columbus despite his tender young age.

"Wright dominated older and higher-rated prospects at the Columbus Rivals Camp even though he was one of the youngest players there," Friedman writes. In particular, the analyst singled out the 6-foot-6, 275-pounder's "quickness, patience and the way he finished his blocks." All of this fine work earned Wright an invitation to the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge. Among the programs he is currently considering for a potential commitment, Virginia Tech, Louisville, Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman noted that uncommitted four-star 2019 C Clay Webb was one of the top performers in the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp series.

"Webb knows how to flip the switch. He is a quiet young man off the field, then plays with anger on it. In Atlanta, he was powerful, he was violent and he was dominant," Friedman writes. While the 6-foot-4, 285-pounder still has two years remaining at Oxford High (Alabama), he has already conjured up a top-three, one made up of a trio of SEC schools in Alabama, Auburn and Georgia.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman tagged uncommitted three-star 2018 G Chris Murray as a standout from the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp series.

"The interior offensive lineman used exceptional technique and strength to win each of his one-on-one reps at the Los Angeles event," Friedman writes. He passes along that the 6-foot-3, 290-pounder is planning on taking some Pac-12 visits this summer. Murray ranks as Rivals' No. 24 guard prospect in the 2018 cycle.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 CB Jalen Green is planning summer visits to Oregon and USC.

Coaches from both Oregon and USC journeyed to Houston Heights High School to check in on Green at the end of his school's spring practice period. In addition to those two programs, Clemson, LSU and Penn State are also on the 6-foot-2, 165-pounder's radar for potential summer visits. He said that he is "really interested in seeing Penn State." Rivals ranks Green as the No. 125 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 TE Mustapha Muhammad unveiled his top-10 on Wednesday.

Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC all made the cut. The 6-foot-5, 225-pounder does not currently have an out-and-out favorite. Muhammad ranks as Rivals' No. 14 tight end prospect in the country. Scout.com is considerably higher on his collegiate prospects, slotting him at No. 40 overall on their master list. The outlet is keen on his body control and prowess as a red zone threat, but would like to see him add a little bit of muscle mass.

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack predicted that uncommitted four-star 2018 LB Justice Dingle will commit to Louisville.

"To date, Louisville seems to have made the best impression, hosting Dingle for several trips and also returning the favor in the spring," Wommack explains. He sees Georgia Tech as another potential contender for the 6-foot-2, 235-pounder's pledge. Tingle ranks as Rivals' No. 219 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack believes that uncommitted four-star WR Kamryn Babb will commit to Ohio State.

"The Buckeyes have made Babb a priority, and Urban Meyer’s track record of closing on wide receivers from out of state in recent years has been impressive," Wommack writes. He additionally forwards that Oklahoma -- who just offered to Babb -- could also be in the thick of this thing down to the wire. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Babb was a standout performer at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in St. Louis over the weekend and "looked nearly uncoverable" during 1-on-1 drills, according to Wommack and fellow Rivals analysts Rob Cassidy and Chad Simmons. In addition to Ohio State and Oklahoma, keep an eye on LSU, Alabama and Ole Miss -- Babb is planning to visit all three programs this summer.

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack predicted that uncommitted four-star 2018 CB Jaylon King will commit to Ole Miss.

"The Rebels were one of the first programs to offer and have the chance to provide King a quick path to playing time," Wommack writes. While King ranks as Rivals' No. 223 overall prospect, his recruitment to date has been somewhat fractured, as he was largely unable to participate in the offseason camp circuit last year due to various minor injuries. Also setting him back, he spent the 2016 season at quarterback for Ensworth High (Tennessee). His potential comes as a corner, though, making this current summer/spring camp stretch a pivotal one as he tries to show out at his natural position.

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack believes that uncommitted four-star 2018 ATH Houston Griffith will commit to Notre Dame.

"Florida State, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Ohio State are all heavily in the mix, and [Griffith is] planning on taking a number of visits this summer before trimming his list heading into the fall," Wommack writes, adding that the 6-foot, 185-pounder "seems like a good culture fit in South Bend and has spoken highly of the Irish on several occasions." Rivals ranks Griffith as the No. 42 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. During the Adidas East Coast Invitational earlier this offseason, Wommack and colleague Rob Cassidy referred to him as "one of the more physically imposing players," one who "looked like a college-ready prospect."

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack believes that uncommitted four-star 2018 DT Michael Thompson will commit to Missouri.

Wommack believes that Thompson and fellow four-star DT Trevor Trout could be a package deal, as they are close friends. The analyst sees both players ultimately committing to HC Barry Odom's outfit. The 6-foot-4, 273-pound Thompson is fresh off earning defensive line MVP honors at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in St. Louis, with Wommack and Rob Cassidy writing afterward that he was "[t]he most dominant player at the camp" and that "[h]is build is that of an elite-level college lineman."

Rivals recruiting analyst Woody Wommack believes that uncommitted four-star 2018 DT Trevor Trout will commit to Missouri.

Missouri has long been considered a potential landing spot for Trout, with Wommack's colleague Josh Helmholdt calling the Tigers a "locked in" contender for the 6-foot-3, 295-pounder's services a year ago this month. It isn't just the pundits who see things in this light, either. Wommack relays that at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in St. Louis, "other prospects echoed that sentiment when asked over the weekend." Missouri is helped by two factors, here. First, Trout hails from St. Louis. Second, the team has turned into something of DL U due to their ability to consistently churn out defensive line prospects for the NFL. Trout ranks as Rivals' No. 37 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.
