Quotable:

Who will be the movers & shakers in recruiting during July, a month when high school prospects make their last trips to college campuses before shifting focus to their senior season?

Earlier this week, I noticed that five programs --- NC State, Louisville, Rutgers, Texas, and Boston College --- have at least 20 verbal commitments already.  Some programs, however, have less less than 12 commitments.  Those programs include LSU, UGA, Florida, Oklahoma, Auburn, South Carolina, Stanford, and Washington.  Thus, there's plenty of time for movers & shakers. Currently, according to 247Sports, the top 10 team recruiting rankings shape up as follows:

1. Alabama
2. Texas A&M
3. Texas
4. Michigan
5. Miami
6. Ohio State
7. Tennessee
8. Florida State
9. Notre Dame
10. Clemson
