Uncommitted five-star 2017 RB Cam Akers has narrowed his choice to three programs.

We would give you more, but Akers has declined to actually name his top three programs. Just be aware that they exist. Among those courting the 5-foot-11, 200-pound stud, Ole Miss, LSU, Florida State and Ohio State. Just two weekends ago, he soaked in Ohio State v. Michigan, saying of that visit, "Winning program. They do their job well up there." Over the summer, Akers ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash at the Nike Football Ratings Championship. He ranks as Scout's No. 4 overall recruit for the 2017 cycle.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 CB Jeffrey Okudah will announce his program choice at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on January 7.

Barring a sudden change of heart, Okudah's decision will come down to Florida State, Oklahoma and Ohio State. ESPN's Tom VanHaaren predicted in mid-September that the Buckeyes would ultimately come away with the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder's pledge. Wherever he lands, the upside here is huge. VanHaaren colleague Tom Luginbill compared Okudah to Michigan star Jabrill Peppers back in May.

Oregon four-star 2017 verbal CB commit Deommodore Lenoir has reopened his recruitment.

Lenoir stood as Oregon's highest-rated recruit for the 2017 cycle, but no longer. This could prove to be even more problematic for Oregon than just one player, de-committing, though. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound corner is good friends with fellow four-star corner Jaylon Redd, still committed to the Ducks cause, while he is teammates with at least two other recruits who are either committed to Oregon or strongly considering the Ducks. Stay tuned to see if this is the start of an avalanche. Oregon somewhat infamously went through a six-week stretch last winter in which they did not notch any new commitments.

Notre Dame four-star 2017 LB commit Pete Werner has reopened his recruitment.

Werner had been committed to the Irish cause since March, but it's possible that an unofficial visit to Ohio State for their world-ending game against Michigan on Saturday might have planted second thoughts regarding his commitment. It doesn't help matters that Notre Dame (4-8) won't even be eligible for a bowl this winter. The 6-foot-3, 310-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 18 linebacking recruit for the 2017 cycle.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 S Devon Hunter will take an official visit to Alabama for this weekend's Iron Bowl.

As Hunter counts both Auburn and Alabama among the top five contenders for his pledge, his Saturday visit to Tuscaloosa will essentially serve as a 2-for-1 deal. In addition to that pair of programs, the 6-foot-1, 204-pound safety is also eyeing North Carolina, Clemson and Virginia Tech. He indicated that he is hoping to take official visits to both the Tar Heels and Hokies in early December. Hunter -- Rivals' No. 53 overall prospect for 2017 -- would like to make a commitment before Christmas. Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Friedman writes that Virginia Tech "remains in great shape with Hunter." As Friedman notes, it is very possible that his official to Blacksburg will be the last visit that he takes before making a commitment.

Iowa three-star 2017 verbal WR commit Gavin Holmes reopened his recruitment.

Holmes took to Twitter to announce the resumption of his recruitment and offered a lengthy explanation for his backing off a Hawkeye commitment that had stood since July. Among the reasons the 5-foot-11, 178-pound wideout offered, the fact that Iowa does not allow their recruits to visit other schools and the general sluggishness of Iowa's offense. This is Holmes' second decommitment in less than half a year. Prior to opting for -- and then later soundly rejecting -- Iowa, he had been committed to Duke.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 CB Kalon Gervin tagged Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and West Virginia as the top four contenders for his pledge.

"[Those four] are recruiting me the hardest at this point and I have a great relationship with the head coaches," Gervin explained. The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder has attended games by Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin this season -- but none by OU, Pitt, Tennessee or West Virginia. With his Detroit Cass Tech squad currently undefeated and making a run toward an appearance in the state championship game, it is now unlikely that he will make further visits during the season. Gervin ranks as Rivals' No. 83 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. Still well over a year left in his recruitment, though, so that top four should be considered tentative at best.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 CB Thomas Graham will take official visits to Oregon and UCLA over the next two weekends.

Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Gorney wrote that Graham's visit to Oregon "could be a crucial trip for many reasons." Gorney notes that Oregon has had success in reeling in recruits of a similar stock to the 5-foot-10, 173-pound Californian during this current cycle, specifically citing Deommodore Lenoir and Jaylon Redd. "In a similar mold," the analyst writes, "Graham is a super fast, dynamic defensive back who could also be used in other ways." Rivals ranks Graham as their No. 68 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 TE Nick Robinson will still consider Memphis despite the fact that he de-committed from them earlier this autumn.

"I’m still looking at them. I just didn’t feel like it was right taking official visits to other schools while I was still committed to the University of Memphis," Robinson said. Fair. Robinson initially committed to the Tigers in June, but opted to back off that pledge in October. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder tweeted on Monday that he would be taking an official visit to the program January 13-15. He already took one to UCF. His final three officials will likely come from the lot of Arizona State, Houston, Louisville, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Tennessee. Robinson. He had been planning to visit Houston near the end of October, but that trip evidently fell through. Robinson ranks as Rivals' No. 11 tight end in the 2017 cycle.

Iowa four-star 2017 verbal CB commit Chevin Calloway backed off his pledge.

Calloway's de-commitment was confirmed by his coach at Bishop Dunne (Texas). Rivals' No. 86 overall prospect for 2017 initially opted to join the Hawkeye cause in mid-July. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound corner's eyes began wondering as the weather cooled into September. He has already taken autumn visits to Texas and Nebraska, with Akransas (this coming weekend), Ole Miss and Colorado all potential visitation spots in the coming weeks. Keep an eye on Ole Miss. Calloway spoke highly of them back in May.

Uncommitted five-star 2017 CB Darnay Holmes indicated that Michigan and Ohio State are both swinging hard for his commitment.

Holmes has been in touch with 2015 standout recruit David Long, now of Michigan, and said, "He’s speechless about the experience he’s having up there. To be coached by one of the NFL greats and be welcomed in as a freshman and have the love that they give him day-in and day-out, he’s speechless." As for the Buckeyes, the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder said that Urban Meyer and crew have "always been there since day one." Holmes is not expected to make his official commitment until the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January. Rivals views him as the 15th best prospect in the 2017 cycle.

Uncommitted five-star 2017 DE Jarez Parks indicated that he could take future visits to Alabama, Florida State and Florida.

Parks is fresh off a visit to Florida State, one which didn't end so hot, as the Seminoles fell to Clemson. "Basically, they tell me that I could kind of play both linebacker and defensive end in a sense. They want to use my versatility," explained the 6-foot-5, 255-pounder. He declined to name a leader for his commitment, though, saying that he would like to take visits to Alabama and Florida, as well as a repeat trip to Tallahassee. Parks ranks as Rivals' No. 22 overall prospect in the 2017 cycle.

Uncommitted four-star 2017 WR Isaiah Hodgins has no further official visits scheduled at this time.

Hodgins has taken officials to Nebraska, Oregon State and (most recently) Oregon. Of his trip to Eugene this past weekend, the 6-foot-3, 187-pounder found himself smitten with Ducks freshman gunslinger Justin Herbert, calling him the "real deal" and saying that "it for sure helps knowing he will be there." Rivals recruiting analyst Adam Gorney relays that Boise State, Utah and Wisconsin were potential options for officials, too, but at least for the time being, Hodgins said that he has no other trips on the immediate docket. Formerly a Washington State pledge, Hodgins ranks as Rivals' No. 42 receiver in the country for the 2017 cycle.

Uncommitted five-star 2017 WR Donovan Peoples-Jones named Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Florida and Florida State as the five top contenders for his pledge.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Peoples-Jones' little list here is that Nebraska did not make the cut. This, despite the fact that he took an official visit to the Cornhuskers the opening weekend of the season. He also took an official to Ohio State earlier this month. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound wideout has no other officials scheduled at this time. Scout.com's Allen Trieu notes that the stud receiving prospect "[s]hows the ability to make tough grabs downfield with defenders on him, and has excellent body control and ball tracking skills."
Oct 31 - 2:07 PM

Uncommitted four-star 2017 DT Aubrey Solomon is scheduled to take an official visit to Michigan when they play Maryland on November 5.

Solomon has already spent time as a Michigan commit, but backed off his pledge due to a low-grade embarrassing incident in the summer in which the program sent him a "Thank You" note for a barbecue that he was not present for. And they spelled his name wrong. All of this led the 6-foot-3, 305-pound prospect to decommit, but the Wolverines haven't left his thoughts completely. Scout.com ranks him as their No. 20 overall prospect for 2017, noting that he "plays hard and fast for a guy his size." The outlet is incredibly keen on his quickness, but would like to see improved technique in hand placement.
