NCF On The Trail: Tarvarus McFadden


After taking just one official visit before the dead period began, it looked as though it would be difficult for No. 7 overall prospect Iman Marshall to take all five of his official visits before signing day. But the 6-foot-1, 195-pound cornerback revealed his plan Friday morning to fit four official visits into a three-week span.

Even though USC still has the top-ranked recruiting class in the Pac-12, things are a lot closer after Keisean Lucier-South picked UCLA over the weekend. Plus, Kansas is looking for positives on the recruiting trail and the Jayhawks have got a big one in quarterback Ryan Willis.

#SceneAndHeard Lunch Break: Sept. 10

In today's lunch break, it's time to take a look at the chances some school unseats Alabama for the nation's top 2015 recruiting class with national signing day 147 days away. When looking at where classes are now, and the likelihood of where many top prospects will potentially land, there are two schools that have a realistic shot to unseat the Crimson Tide -- Georgia and Florida State.

Can Georgia finish No. 1?
There is not a program in the country that enjoyed a more fruitful July and August on the recruiting trail than the Bulldogs. With the efforts and momentum created with the hire of Jeremy Pruitt as defensive coordinator, along with the work of the entire staff with an increased presence on social media, Georgia is positioned nicely to make a run for No. 1.

Should the Bulldogs go into Columbia, South Carolina, and beat South Carolina, a 10-win regular season looks like a strong possibility, as well as a huge leg up in getting to the SEC championship game.

There were several key SEC games over the weekend and plenty of recruiting news to go along with them. From Texas A&M’s impressive victory over South Carolina to Georgia’s dominating second half performance against Clemson, recruits from all over the country had a chance to finally see teams they are considering in action. Here is a closer look at some of the top recruiting news around the SEC.

Texas A&M catches the attention of top recruits

Even though Texas A&M has put together a tremendous recruiting class this year, many expected it to be a down year on the field for the Aggies. After all A&M lost three first-round draft picks including Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. Much to the delight of the Aggie faithful, Texas A&M dominated SEC East opponent South Carolina last Thursday evening.
