RecruitingNation has summoned its writers from around the country to compile a list of the Top 10 battles for elite football recruits leading up to February's signing day. We'll update our rankings periodically to reflect a change in a player's status (i.e., new offers, trimmed-down list or a positive/negative official visit). Our writers have debated the list for weeks, but we value your input as well. Voice your opinion on Twitter (@RecruitingESPN) using #BlueChipBattles or vote for which player should hold the No. 1 spot on Facebook.

Here is our Week 2 panel of writers: Brad Bournival (@bbournival), David Helman (@HelmanESPN), Kipp Adams (@KippLAdams), Derek Tyson (@DerekTysonESPN), Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH), Corey Long (@CoreyLong), Erik McKinney (@EMcKinneyESPN), Jared Shanker (@JShankerESPN) and Bob Przybylo (@BPrzybylo).
