There are still better than three weeks left for the 2014 recruiting class, but that won't stop the 2015 class from making noise before signing day.

Josh Rosen (Bellflower, Calif./St. John Bosco) -- the nation's No. 1 quarterback prospect and No. 16 overall recruit -- will be on the move over the next few weeks and it isn't out of the question that his recruitment could come to a close before spring hits.

Rosen attended last weekend's Elite 11 Regional in Southern California but did not participate, as he is still recovering from a shoulder injury he played through for much of his state-title-winning junior season. At the event, Rosen said he plans to take unofficial visit to UCLA and USC after the dead period ends.

The Early Offer is RecruitingNation's regular feature, giving you a daily dose of recruiting in the mornings. Today's offerings: Just when it seemed clear on what four-star running back Joe Mixon was thinking, an official visit to Florida State has seemingly brought his decision back to square one; two of the top recruits in Ohio were hoping to make a decision in early January, but the success of their high school teams might change those plans; Missouri and Tennessee made nice climbs in the latest RecruitingNation class rankings.

Christian Kirk has always been ahead of schedule.

This spring, the Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro sophomore went toe-to-toe with the West region's top juniors on the field and on the recruiting trail. But that's nothing new for the 5-foot-10, 190-pound wide receiver.

Kirk began playing football at 5 years old, but don't tell that to the administrators of the league he played for.

RB Mixon still open to everyone

Holding more than 40 offers, running back Joe Mixon (Oakley, Calif./Freedom) is arguably the most sought-after recruit in the West region. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound, four-star back is the top running back in the West and the No. 135 player in the country. His offer sheet has seemingly grown by the minute this spring, but he isn't in any hurry to narrow it down.

Despite tweeting out a list of 16 programs several weeks ago, Mixon said Sunday that he only did that to highlight the schools recruiting him the hardest, not anything to be taken as a group of finalists.

"I'm still talking to a lot of people," Mixon said. "The recruiting thing has been crazy the past couple of weeks. I've pretty much been taking it well. I talk to them before school, during lunch and after school. I'm not to the stressful part yet, but the hard part has been staying in contact with everybody."

So Cal DB gets Opening invite

LOS ANGELES -- Receivers hardly found any open space against Naijiel Hale (Bellflower, Calif./St. John Bosco) on Sunday at the Nike Football Training Camp, so it was only fitting that a strong showing earned the fast-rising cornerback an invite to The Opening this summer.

Hale has scholarship offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, California, Nebraska and Washington State, but that list figures to grow in the upcoming evaluation period.

“I was shocked when I got the invite,” Hale said. “I thought there were a couple of defensive backs that also stood out. I went out there without too much pressure and I performed well.”

Cal commit Cameron Hunt (Corona, Calif./Centennial) has become one of the top offensive line targets for a number of schools across the country. The four-star prospect recently returned home from the Under Armour All-America Game in Florida -- the first leg of an action-packed January -- and is focused on evaluating his options with less than a month to go until national signing day.

Hunt plans to visit Michigan on Jan. 11 after he returns home from the Under Armour All-America Game, Oregon on Jan. 18 and Cal on Jan. 25.

He’s also considering Ohio State, though he has yet to set a visit. It has been a long road for Hunt, who drew little recruiting interest before a breakout camp circuit last spring.

ESPN 300 OL Hunt will be busy

Until a couple of weeks ago, the Oregon Ducks had been looking at three offensive linemen in order to round out their class with one or two more players at that position. Then two new recruits came into the picture and received offers almost immediately.

Both of the new offers were big, as one led to a commitment and the other has one of the top players in the West seriously considering the Ducks.

California commit and Under Armour All-American OL Cameron Hunt (Corona, Calif./Centennial) recently began to explore other options after Cal had a coaching change. Hunt remains committed to the Bears but is giving a good look to three other programs. Nebraska, Michigan and Oregon all offered the ESPN 300 prospect within days of Jeff Tedford being let go. Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer also stopped by the week before Hunt and his Centennial squad took on Concord (Calif.) De La Salle in the state championship game.

One of the more intriguing recruiting story lines in the west is that of ESPN 300 OL Cameron Hunt (Corona, Calif./Centennial). While he is still committed to the Cal Bears, the Under Armour All-American has a busy January ahead.

"I have the Under Armour Game on January 4th, then the following week is when things get really hectic," Hunt said. "I'm going to Michigan on the 12th, Oregon on the 18th and Cal on the 25th. I'm going to visit Ohio State at some point to but I need to figure that one out."

Michigan to visit ESPN 300 OT Hunt

When Jeff Tedford was let go from his position as head coach at California, offensive tackle Cameron Hunt (Corona, Calif./Centennial) didn't rush into any decision, but did say he was happy to have plenty of options available to him. The nation's No. 220 recruit could be close to adding yet another possibility to his long list of scholarship offers as Michigan offensive line coach Darrell Funk will make an in-home visit Tuesday.

Mason KelleyESPN 300 OT Cameron Hunt, a Cal commitment, is seeing a lot of attention this week.
"As of right now, he just wants to meet with me, visit with me and see what type of person I am," Hunt said. "He said he likes a lot of my film and said I don't need to send him any more -- especially playing against Jojo (ESPN 300 DE Joe Mathis) last week, I did pretty well against him. It kind of showed him that I could play at a major DI level and compete early."

A scholarship offer from Michigan would likely give Hunt plenty to think about as he continues through the recruiting process, but the Wolverines aren't the only program pushing hard to steal the 6-foot-4, 267-pound tackle away from Cal.

2014 Texas DB high on Michigan

Ronnie Larue (Red Oak, Texas/Red Oak) doesn't just have a great name, he also has some skills on the football field. Larue plays quarterback and defensive back for his high school team, but at 6-foot, 180 pounds, most programs see the 2014 prospect as a defensive back.

He doesn't hold any offers, but that could change soon as some of the top programs in the country already have shown interest.

"I've been getting mail from basically every college, but really talk to Michigan, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Cal, UCLA, Arkansas, Ohio State, SMU and Washington State," he said. "Distance won't matter to me; I actually want to get out of Dallas or even Texas."
