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 this week's panel of writers: Brad Bournival (@bbournival), Chantel Jennings (@ChantelJennings), Kipp Adams (@KippLAdams), Sam Khan Jr. (@skhanjr), Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH), Brandon Oliver (@BoliverESPN), Erik McKinney (@EMcKinneyESPN), Blair Angulo (@bangulo), Damon Sayles (@DamonSayles) and Radi Nabulsi (@RadiNabulsi).
