2020 four-star cornerback Malachi Moore commits to Alabama

Alabama gets an in-state recruit here for next years class. Moore is very athletic and should continue to develop his body as he goes into his junior year of high school.

Four-star cornerback Chester Kimbrough commits to Florida

Kimbrough needs to add weight to his frame, but he has long arms and plays very physical and once he puts weight on he should be a very good player. He appears to be a very well-rounded defensive back.

Four-star JUCO cornerback DJ Daniel commits to South Carolina

The Gamecocks land one of the top JUCO defensive backs here. Daniel has good size, but he has very long arms and he is kind of the new prototype at cornerback. He really gets up to jam at the line of scrimmage and plays aggressively and has the look of someone who could be a lock-down corner.

Four-star safety Jaylen McCollough commits to Tennesee

Jeremy Pruitt is putting together a very nice first recruiting class at Tennessee and that continues here. McCollough, who is also a talented running back, is a safety that takes pride in coming down into the box and playing physical in the run game. He should be able to come in and be a do-everything type of safety for the Volunteers.

Four-star athlete Zion Puckett commits to Auburn

Puckett is a do-it-all type of guy on offense. He normally lines up at receiver where he has a knack for getting a lot of yards after the catch, but he can also carry the ball and do damage. Defensively he plays safety and he is a guy who likes to lay the wood to opposing offensive players. Auburn will have options with this kid as he appears to be the true definition of an athlete.

Four-star defensive tackle Jacob Bandes commits to Washington

Bandes is a dude up front. He is able to rush the passer from the interior by using a bull rush and he plays with a great motor that makes him tough to block. He is also very stout against the run.

Four-star cornerback Cameron Smith commits to South Carolina

The Gamecocks get another potential lock-down corner here. Smith is a rangy athlete that likes to play in the face of receivers and he has good ball-skills while the ball is in the air. It’s been a huge week for South Carolina adding to their defensive backfield, this time with an in-state commit.

Five-star power forward Armando Bacot commits to North Carolina

Bacot is a powerful player. He clearly knows that he has a big frame by the way that he uses it to get right to the rim. It’ll obviously be harder to overpower players in the ACC, but he has a decent skill level when it comes to post moves and stepping out and shooting, that looks like it could definitely improve as he receives more coaching.
