Nearly 30 2015 quarterbacks have already committed to BCS schools. As we enter the busy months of May and June, here is a look at some of the top signal callers who could make their decisions by the end of the summer.

No. 14 Kyler Murray -- The nation's top-ranked quarterback continues to be a heavy lean to Texas A&M after an unofficial visit to Oregon on April 13. Auburn is making a late push, but with Murray participating in the state playoffs for baseball, will the Tigers be able to get him on campus before he makes a decision?

No. 72 Zach Gentry -- Four programs have received the most attention from Gentry: Alabama, Oklahoma State, Tennessee and Texas. The Cowboys already have ESPN 300 signal caller John Kolar in the fold, so the smart money is on the Volunteers, Crimson Tide or Longhorns.

No. 107 Brandon Wimbush -- Penn State continues to be considered the team to beat for Wimbush, but a visit in the next two weeks to Ohio State could muddy the waters. A decision is likely toward the end of May, and Virginia Tech and Miami are also very much in the mix.

No. 126 Brady White -- White, who will decide Friday, was offered by Oregon on April 28, which followed unofficial visits to Arizona State and Arizona. The Sun Devils are the Ducks' main competition. California and Penn State also have a puncher's chance.

No. 140 Travis Waller -- An early April offer by Tennessee changed the recruitment of Waller, and an offer from Oregon could have a similar effect. Washington remains in the mix, but the Huskies have ESPN 300 Jake Browning already in the fold. Penn State and Arizona are also under serious consideration.
