According to the 247Composite prospect rankings which factor in the rankings of all the major recruiting networks, Alabama has had the No. 1 offensive center committed since June. This week, just for good measure, the Crimson Tide added the No. 2 ranked offensive center in the country as well. Joshua Casher, once an Auburn commit out of Mobile, Ala. decommitted from the Tigers back in July. On Tuesday, he committed once again, this time to the in-state rival Alabama. 

On the other side of the ball, Texas A&M is compiling an equally impressive embarrassment of riches. After landing 247Sports five-star defensive end Myles Garrett last week, the Aggies followed that up with a commitment from four-star defensive end Qualen Cunningham out of Arizona. Kevin Sumlin then topped that news by getting the nation¹s top junior college offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemanor to flip his commitment from Arkansas to Texas A&M. 

Tennessee has also been continuing its climb up the national team rankings on 247Sports. Currently the Vols are ranked No. 2 in the nation in recruiting and most recently, Butch Jones was able to land a commitment out of Dewayne Hendrix, a four-star defensive end from O¹Fallon, Ill. With 28 commitments in the fold, the space is becoming limited as competition for those final three or four spots heats up. 

There will be plenty of SEC commitments on the field Friday when CSS airs the showdown between SandyCreek and CarroltonHigh School. Both schools are undefeated, immensely talented and should create a wild Friday night atmosphere. For Carrolton, the name to watch among numerous college prospects is Georgia commit Dontavius Russell, a big defensive tackle that will be a nose guard in Athens. For SandyCreek, keep an eye on the explosive rushing attack led by junior four-star Eric Swinney as well as the air attack that will be targeting Clemson commit Demarre Kitt at receiver.
