Alabama could be taking another QB commitment for the class of 2013. This week they are having their camp in Tuscaloosa, and some of the top prospects around the country will be present. In addition to already having QB Cooper Bateman in the bag, under-the-radar prospects in Riley Ferguson and Parker McLeod both hold offers from the Tide, and whichever one pulls the trigger first will get the scholarship.

Marquel Wade will likely return to the Hogs’ team at some point. Comments from John L. Smith indicate this will happen. After all, Wade is the top return man and a starting WR on this squad, and he will have a huge impact on how this season turns out. Here is what Smith had to say: “You know, you look there and, you know, Marquel Wade becomes a factor that’s kind of a question mark. Hopefully we can get that factor realized, get him back on the field. That can help as far as our special teams goes.” [Arkansas Sports 360]
As expected, Georgia picked up a commitment from their backup QB’s brother. Uriah LeMay picked the Dawgs over Ohio State, Oklahoma and Virginia Tech. The 4-star WR will join his brother and current backup Christian LeMay to create a little “LeMay to LeMay” in the future. The Dawgs have their 18th commitment for the class of ’13, and they may take as many as 30 players. [AJC]
Ole Miss received a commitment from a very good QB in Ryan Buchanan yesterday. Buchanan is considered to be the state’s top QB recruit, and the Rebels landed a very good leader for their future. The 6-4, 210lb signal caller will have his opportunity to come in and compete for the starting job day one. He chose Ole Miss over Alabama, Florida and Mississippi State. Things are looking up for Hugh Freeze’s squad in Oxford. [Clarion Ledger]
Tennessee picked up a commitment over the weekend from Brett Kendrick from Christian Academy of Knoxville. The 6-5, 290lb OT confirmed via text message that he did indeed commit to Derek Dooley and the Vols. His first D1 offer was just this past Wednesday from Arkansas State. [Go Vols Xtra]
