ARIZONA STATE

2013 verbal commitments: 26
Spotlight: Junior college transfer Damarious Randall (Pensacola, Fla.) is the latest edition to the recruiting class. Could double as a kick returner if needed.
ESPN 150 members: 0
ESPN 300 members: 1 (Joshua Dobbs, QB, Alpharetta, Ga.)

CALIFORNIA

OREGON

2013 verbal commitments: 16
Spotlight: Some expected the number of commitments to go down following the departure of Chip Kelly. But it's gone up -- with Oregon adding three players to the recruiting class in the last week: Three-stars Juwaan Williams (athlete, Tucker, Ga.), Devon Allen (Wide receiver, Phoenix) and offensive tackle Elijah George (Las Vegas) all committed over the weekend.
ESPN 150 members: 2 (Dontre Wilson, athlete, DeSoto, Texas; Thomas Tyner, RB, Aloha, Ore.)
ESPN 300 members: 4 (Evan Voeller, OT, West Linn, Ore.; Tyree Robinson, WR, San Diego)

OREGON STATE

2013 verbal commitments: 23
Spotlight: The Beavers added pocket passer Kyle Kempt (Massillon, Ohio) last week. At 6-foot-5, 205 pounds, he has the frame of a prototypical Mike Riley quarterback. He grades out as the No. 68 pocket passer nationally, so he'll need some time to develop. And that's a good thing, since Riley has some decisions to make about quarterbacks in 2013.

STANFORD

2013 verbal commitments: 12
Spotlight: No movement in the last week from Stanford, though keep your eyes out for ESPN 150 wide receiver Jordan Cunningham, who is rumored to favor the Cardinal.
ESPN 150 members: 1 (Ryan Burns, QB, Ashburn Va.)
ESPN 300 members: 5 (Greg Taboada, Ath., Atlanta; Francis Owusu, WR, Westlake Village, Calif.; Austin Hooper, DE, Concord, Calif.; Peter Kalambayi, OLB, Matthews, N.C.)

UCLA

2013 verbal commitments: 23
Spotlight: It was a huge week for the Bruins, who scored two of the top safeties in the country in Priest Willis (No. 5) and Tahaan Goodman (No. 9). Both rank in the ESPN 150 list and both are four-stars. Probably a safe bet we'll see a lot of Cover 2 from the Bruins in the coming years.
ESPN 150 members: 3 (Priest Willis, S, Tempe, Ariz.; Deon Hollins Jr., OLB, Missouri City, Texas; Tahaan Goodman, S., Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.)
ESPN 300 members: 7 (Eldridge Massington, WR, Mesquite, Texas; Johnny Johnson Jr., CB, Fresno, Calif.; Scott Quessenberry, OL, Carlsbad, Ca.; John Lopez, OG, Orange, Calif.)

USC

2013 verbal commitments: 14
Spotlight: The Jason Hatcher drama continues, and now it looks like the No. 14 defensive end in the country has re-committed to the Trojans after de-committing a week and a half ago. If it holds up, it's a good way for the Trojans to stop some of the bleeding that had gouged the recruiting class in recent weeks.
ESPN 150 members: 9 (Su'a Cravens, S, Murrieta, Calif.; Jalen Ramsey, CB, Brentwood, Tenn.; Max Browne, QB, Sammamish, Wash.; Kenny Bigelow, DT, Elkton, MD.; Leon McQuay III, S, Seffner, Fla.; Michael Hutchings, OLB, Concord, Calif.; Chris Hawkins, CB, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.; Steven Mitchell, WR, Mission Hills, Calif.; Ty Isaac, athlete. Joliet, Ill.;
ESPN 300 members: 14 (Jason Hatcher, DE, Louisville, Ky.; Justin Davis, RB, Stockton, Calif.; Nico Falah, OT, Bellflower, Calif.;Torrodney Prevot, DE, Houston; Khaliel Rodgers, OG, Elkton MD.)

UTAH

2013 verbal commitments: 30
Spotlight: The Utes continued a late surge with the addition of Gaius Vaenuku, a four-star defensive tackle from Euless, Texas, over the weekend. He's the second four-star defensive tackle to give a verbal in the last 10 days. Athlete Clarence Smith (Buckeye, Ariz.) also gave a verbal in the last week.

WASHINGTON STATE

2013 verbal commitments: 27
Spotlight: Earlier today the Cougars picked up a commitment from 6-5, 230-pound outside linebacker Dylan Hanser (Billings, Mont.). With four four-stars, this is shaping up to be a nice looking class.
