Update 6/2: Linked to articles on FL CB Brandon McGee, CA WR Shaquelle Evans, NC OL Xavier Nixon, OH OL Marcus Hall, TN OL Alex Bullard.

Removed FL RB Mike Gillislee (Florida), NC OL Xavier Nixon (dropped us), FL DT Antwan Lowery (dropped us).

Added MD DE Jason Ankrah, TN CB Marsalis Teague.

Editorial Opinion: Short week because last week's recruiting post came out Wednesday, and a crappy one. I don't know what happened with Xavier Nixon after this:

Despite the long list of suitors, Nixon already knows that he'd like to visit Notre Dame and Michigan. "Those are the only two that are set in stone, but I don't know beyond that."
...and this...
Highly coveted offensive tackle Xavier Nixon is now only considering North Carolina, N.C. State, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Miami-FL, South Carolina, West Virginia and Notre Dame, the Fayetteville Observer reports.
...but whatever it was, it was lame. Meanwhile, a little darting RB who had nice things to say about M once commits to Florida, a FL CB Brandon McGee article passes with no mention of Michigan, and OH OL Marcus Hall reterates that three non-M schools lead for him. None of that except the Nixon thing is particularly surprising, but it's not good.

The one positive:
...according to these quotes, it appears as if [CA WR Shaquelle] Evans will visit one of his suitors, Notre Dame, in September. Plans are in the works for trips to LSU, Michigan, Ohio State and Tennessee in the near future. UCLA and USC are among the other programs interested in Evans, who has said in the past that he'd like to make a verbal commitment before his senior season.
Evans is a big time recruit; it's nice to make a nominal top seven with him
