So why did linebacker Tre Williams commit to Auburn over Alabama?  ”I went to Auburn because that’s a whole family from the coaches to the fans to the players.” Williams says linebacker depth at Alabama was not a factor.  He says he was told he would inside linebacker at Auburn, but that could change.

3. Alabama’s quarterback wish list. Crimson Tide’s top five recruiting targets.

4. Missouri has added a lineman from the Kansas City area to its 2014 class.  Lee’s Summit West lineman Kevin Pendleton committed to the Tigers Wednesday night.  Pendleton’s coach is Royce Boehm, father of current Tiger lineman Evan Boehm. Pendleton is Missouri’s seventh 2014 commitment.

8. Louisiana quarterback Brandon Harris has added an offer from LSU to an ever-growing list.  ”It was a little frustrating to not have it at one point to be honest. Now I have it and it feels good.

Georgia Loses One WR Commit; Hopes To Hold Onto Another

Georgia is hoping Tramel Terry won’t make the same decision as Demarre Kitt.

Kitt, a junior wide receiver from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga., decommitted from the Bulldogs on Thursday.

“I think I committed too early,” Kitt told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Clemson and (South Carolina) are still recruiting me hard, and I still want to give them a fair chance.”

There’s a chance Terry, a 2013 Georgia commitment from Goose Creek (S.C.) High School, could switch his commitment from Georgia to Clemson. It would be the second time Terry has decommitted from Georgia.

“It wouldn’t surprise me,” Goose Creek coach Chuck Reedy told ESPN RecruitingNation.

Terry visited Clemson last weekend and could make a final decision in December, according to Reedy. Georgia has 27 commitments – four from wide receivers – in the 2013 class.

Report: Shaq Wiggins Is Visiting Alabama

Cornerback Shaq Wiggins from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga., is taking an unofficial visit to Alabama, according to a report from Chad Simmons of FOX Sports/Scout.

Wiggins has been committed to Georgia since Feb. 10 but told MrSEC on Monday he wasn’t sure which schools he would visit.

Wiggins told MrSEC he’s received a total of 19 offers. Those schools have been persistent in recruiting Wiggins despite his commitment to Georgia.

“Sometimes they ask me, ‘Are you still wide open? Do we have a chance?’” Wiggins said. “My response is I don’t really know yet. I’m 100 percent committed to Georgia.”

Two Sandy Creek sophomores – quarterback Cole Garvin and wide receiver Demarre Kitt – are accompanying Wiggins on his trip to Alabama, according to Simmons’ report.
