Countdown to NSD - 8 days, part one

Somewhat early predictions.

Alvin Kamara - if I started last week at 50/50, I'm definitely south of that now. He feels more than a lean towards Bama now. Georgia not out of it, but facing more of an uphill battle it appears.

Laremy Tunsil - new challenger in Ole Miss. Appears to be the Rebels and the Dawgs down the stretch for this one. Glad he didn't visit Oxford the weekend right before signing day. He still seems too strong on Georgia.

Toby Johnson - he's Georgia.

Dooly County's Montravius Adams
Reuben Foster - it's Auburn, or Georgia, or Washington, maybe Bama, or even San Diego State.  My gut days Auburn, but only because of family. He really likes Georgia. But the hometown and family pull might end up being too much.

Montravius Adams - I think in the end he picks Georgia. We'll see if I still feel that way this time next week, but that's where I am here. Just a hunch though.

Davin Bellamy - similar to Tunsil in that he just had an impressive visit almost out of nowhere. I think Grantham really sold this kid on what he could do as soon as next season. Call it the continued Demarcus Ware effect. He comes to Athens.

Matthew Thomas visits this weekend. But it'd take something pretty special to even get our hat on the table for signing day. Don't hold your breath. And things have cooled too much with Tyrone Crowder I think. So right now it's the list above, but...watch to see who comes in late for an official visit this weekend after the coaches sit in some living rooms and drop in on some high school gyms. That might gives us an indication as to how some of these guys are leaning for sure, as well as what late breaking targets emerge on the radar.
