The college football season is well under way, and we are inching closer to the early signing period in December. It's only three months away, which means we will start to see a few more commitments from top prospects.

As official visits take place to see the game atmosphere on different campuses, recruits will start to have enough information to pick a school, and we are going to see three ESPN 300 recruits make their commitments over the next three to four weeks.

In this week's notebook, we will take a look at those announcements and predict where each recruit will go. We will also look at a top-15 recruit taking visits, the recruiting impact from USC firing Clay Helton, which teams helped themselves in recruiting this past weekend and some top performances from transfers and freshmen.

Recruit predictions

This isn't a comprehensive list of who will commit over the next few weeks, but these ESPN 300 recruits have already announced publicly when they will be making their commitment. Here's where we see them going.
