5 Marlon Humphrey, DB Feb 1 (updated from NSD) Alabama, FSU, Miss. State Announced via Twitter this week that Feb 1 is the day
8 Adoree Jackson, DB Feb 5 – National signing day Florida, Southern Cal, LSU Southern Cal getting sexier for this California native.

41 Rashaan Evans, LB After January visit Auburn, Ole Miss, Bama, Georgia It would be hard for anyone to steal him away from Auburn
64 Braden Smith, OL Uncertain TCU, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Auburn One of the head scratchers of the season, and he’s still taking visits.

  • any way you can put their position with them?? i know many of them but would be nice to know them all. : )

    • Shelby …. I’d love to put even more info up there, but believe it or not — in our formatting it would squeeze out even more pertinent info. Just trust me on this … if they’re on this list, they’re GOOD, regardless of position.

    • You know what, Shelby …. I’m up for suggestions. I’m going to change this thing around so that we have positions. You are RIGHT! They should be on there.

  • Carter is not going to Alabama. He does not have the relationship with Saban. He thinks he’s too stodgy. Watch the interviews.
