Nation

1. USC: QB Max Browne (Sammamish, Wash.), who chose the Trojans over OU, is one of USC's three 5-star commits.

2. Florida: The Gators have 24 players committed for the 2013 recruiting class; the most recent commit is 4-star WR Demarcus Robinson (Fort Valley, Ga.).

3. Notre Dame: One-time Oklahoma commit and 5-star RB Greg Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla.) committed Dec. 9 to Notre Dame.

4. Alabama: The Crimson Tide currently has 19 players in its 2013 class, but hasn't added a new verbal commitment since Sept. 28.

5. Michigan: Five-star QB Shane Morris (Warren, Mich.) is the crown jewel of the Wolverines' current 2013 bunch.

6. LSU: Six of the Tigers' 22 current commits are defensive linemen. Two of those are 4-star tackles.

7. Texas A&M: Aggies nabbed a commitment from 4-star tackle Justin Manning, who was long considered a sure bet for Oklahoma. But OU convinced 4-star DT Kerrick Huggins (Dallas Skyline) to switch from A&M to the Sooners late last week.

8. Ohio State: Buckeyes have four DB and six DL commitments currently in their impressive class.

9. Georgia: Bulldogs' most recent pledge is 3-star DB Kennar Johnson from Gulf Coast (Miss.) Community College.
