However, he later backed off that pledge and has since seen his list of potential schools grow. Hill will be visiting Memphis this weekend, as the Tigers make a strong push for his talents. In addition to Memphis, schools like Louisville, Florida State, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Florida, Alabama, Cincinnati, and Georgia Tech remain heavily involved in his recruitment. Hill has expressed that he is open to all options at this point.

Iamaleava Focused on UCLA and Nebraska

Iamaleava, a four-star quarterback from Downey (Calif.) Warren, has been impressing with his skills on the field. UCLA and Nebraska are the top contenders for his commitment. After a recent visit to UCLA, where he met with coaches DeShaun Foster, Eric Bieniemy, and Ted White, Iamaleava is considering the Bruins as a front-runner. However, Nebraska is still in the running for his talents.

Knight’s Decision Between Notre Dame and Ole Miss

Knight, a talented lefty quarterback, committed to Notre Dame in early September. However, Ole Miss and coach Lane Kiffin have been making a strong push to sway him to their program. Knight recently visited Oxford for the Elite 11 regionals, showing considerable interest in the Rebels. As he weighs his options, Knight must decide if he will stick with his Notre Dame commitment or opt for playing closer to home in the SEC under Kiffin’s offense.

Nebraska and Colorado Duel for Lateef’s Commitment

Lateef, a four-star quarterback from Orange (Calif.) Lutheran, has been considering both Nebraska and Colorado. A recent visit to Colorado impressed him greatly, complicating his decision. With Nebraska and Colorado vying for his commitment, Lateef faces a challenging choice ahead.

USC Commit Lewis Weighing Options

USC commit, Lewis, is being pursued by Georgia, Alabama, Colorado, and Auburn, despite his current commitment to the Trojans. Lewis is considering factors such as offensive schemes, immediate playing time, and national championship potential as he evaluates his options. While USC remains a strong consideration, other programs are making compelling offers to sway his decision.

Longstreet’s Decision Between Texas A&M and Auburn

Longstreet, a four-star quarterback from Corona (Calif.) Centennial, had been leaning towards Texas A&M. However, Auburn has made a strong push for his commitment, leading to uncertainty in his decision. Longstreet must weigh the offers from Ole Miss and Oregon, but Auburn’s offensive style may be more suited to his strengths.

Montgomery’s Top Choices Narrowed Down

Montgomery, a four-star quarterback from Findlay, Ohio, has narrowed his top choices to Florida, South Carolina, and Georgia. Each program has its appeal, with Florida and South Carolina showing the most attention to Montgomery. Georgia remains a strong contender, with Montgomery considering various factors in his decision.

Russell Sticks with SMU Commitment

Four-star quarterback, Russell, committed to SMU and has remained loyal to his pledge. However, renewed interest from other programs like Ole Miss, Florida, Houston, and Baylor could make his recruitment more competitive. Depending on the decision of another recruit, Russell may have to reassess his commitment to SMU.

Taylor’s Dilemma Between Mississippi State and UCF

Mississippi State four-star quarterback commit, Taylor, is being courted by UCF. While the Knights offer an appealing offensive system and proximity to home, Mississippi State’s strong recruiting class and coaching staff may sway his decision in the end.

Washington’s Recruitment Widens

Washington, a top quarterback prospect, initially favored Penn State before other programs entered the mix. With Virginia Tech emerging as a key player in his recruitment, Washington’s decision may become more complex in the coming months. UCF, Syracuse, and Maryland are also in contention for his commitment.

As the spring visit season unfolds, quarterbacks across the country are faced with tough decisions on where to continue their football careers. With numerous programs vying for their talents, these young athletes must carefully weigh their options before making a final commitment.
