Two undecided in Lemming's Top 100

Only two players are still undecided in MaxPreps/Tom Lemming's Top 100 -- No. 53 Orson Charles, the TE/DE from Tampa, Fla. and No. 84 Rolando Jefferson, a WR from Fresno, Calif.

According to Tampa Bay Online, Charles still hasn't made a decision because he still needs to take a visit to USC. He expects to make a decision next week between USC, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee and Georgia.

Jefferson, meanwhile, is still deciding between Arizona, Oregon, Utah and Fresno State.

Telfort, Kelly still undecided

While the nation awaits for some of the biggest names -- Manti Te'o, Ruben Randle, Marlon Brown -- to decide where they will play college, there are still a handful of lower-ranked Top 100 players that are undecided.

Frankie Telfort, who is ranked No. 61 on Maxpreps.com/Tom Lemming's Top 100, is expected to make his decision between Florida and USC tomorrow. But according to the Miami Herald, academic power Stanford is still in the mix.

During his visit, Telfort, who is interested in medicine, got to see an open-heart surgery.

"I was a about a foot away" said Telfort to the Miami Herald. "It was crazy. It was the biggest highlight of any of my recruiting visits. I thought, 'There's not a lot they wouldn't do for their students.'"

One of the top receivers still on the board is, Kendall Kelly (No. 96 overall), is deciding between Alabama, LSU and Clemson. According to Tuscaloosanews.com, Kelly might choose to go out of state and join high school teammate Darrell Smith, who was offered a scholarship by Clemson.

The NewsStar.com, also reported that Clemson is ahead of LSU and Alabama for Kelly.

Another linebacker, Anthony Patrick (ranked No. 70) from Stevenson, Alabama will make a decision between Alabama, USC, Auburn and Tennessee.

Some big names still undecided

As we get closer to National Signing Day on Feb. 4, most of the big names have already decided where they are going. But there are still a handful of 5-star recruits who have yet to make a decision.

One of the biggest ones, according to Maxpreps.com and Tom Lemming is D'Andre Kirkpatrick, from Gadsden, Alabama. The 6-foot-4, 185 defensive back is ranked 12th overall by Lemming.

He already visited Alabama, Florida and most recently Texas. According to GoUpstate.com, he is considering a visit to Clemson this weekend. According to GoVolstra, he canceled a planned trip to LSU.

Some other big names ...

Jelani Jenkins, a 6-2, 220-pound linebacker from Olney, Maryland, is one of the most sought-after recruits. He most recently visited Penn State. According to the online newspaper Gazette.net, the Nittany Lions could be the frontrunner, especially since Jenkins' high school teammate Mike Wallace decided to sign there. In a story in the USA Today, Jenkins' dad said "It's down to Florida, Penn State, Notre Dame, Stanford and Southern Cal."

Jarvis Jones, a 6-3, 215-pound linebacker from Columbus, Georgia, still hasn't made up his mind. Along with the Bulldogs and Gators, he is also still considering LSU, Texas and USC. According to the Shreveport Times, Jones will head to Baton Rouge for a visit this weekend.

Edison High School in Fresno, California had three players named to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and two have already found homes to play college ball.

Safety T.J. McDonald committed to USC, cornerback Cliff Harris gave a verbal to attend Oregon, but wide receiver Rolando Jefferson hasn't made a decision yet. Jefferson has visited Arizona, Oregon, Utah and Fresno State, but Georgia Tech is also in the mix.

Terrelle Pryor, Darrell Scott and Julio Jones

With National Signing Day right around the corner, the top three prospects are still undecided.

The nation's No. 1 prospect, QB Terrelle Pryor, appears to have his choices down to four.

According to Terrelle Pryor's official website -- yes, he has his own official site -- he says he's still considering Ohio State, Michigan, LSU and Oregon, which indicates that Florida and Penn State may have fallen out of the picture.

He just visited Michigan and the Detroit Free Press reports his high school coach "liked" his trip. Pryor sat with Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez for parts of the game and Pryor was serenaded with “WE WANT PRYOR!!!” and “COME TO MICHIGAN!!!” chants from the student section.

He already visited Ohio State and will probably get to LSU and Oregon in the next couple of weeks.

"I talked over the Michigan visit with my dad when I got back, and I still have a lot of comparing to do," Pryor said. "And I'm going to take at least one or two more official visits if I can fit them in."

Darrell Scott, the nation's top RB, is likely leaning toward Texas. "Texas is still in the same place they were before. They hold a slight lead over Colorado."

According to BurntOrangeNation.com, the coaches from Austin are think they're going to win this battle with the Buffaloes. Scott still might be taking a visit to LSU, but it appears to be down the two Big 12 rivals. His uncle, Josh Smith, is a freshman wide receiver with the Buffaloes, which could play into where he lands.

The DailyCamera.com, a newspaper from Colorado, said Scott told them nothing is more important to him than family when he made an official visit to Colorado in October, but they also report that Scott isn't a fan of the cold weather in Boulder, which is one of the reasons Texas is in the lead.

As for Julio Jones, the nation's top receiver from Alabama. He is considering Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma and Texas Tech, but the Crimson Tide are definitely the front runner. According to RollBamaRoll.com, he cut short his visit to Florida, so they are probably out.

He is headed to Norman, OK to visit the Sooners this weekend, where Stoops and Co. will try their hardest to steal him from Saban.

Stay tuned...
