College football's 2022 recruiting cycle is starting to gear up for the early signing period in December. As it stands, 228 ESPN 300 prospects have made a commitment, leaving the microscope on the remaining 72 top recruits.

Breaking down those numbers further: six of the 15 five-star prospects have made a commitment, as have 13 of the top-25 prospects, 34 of the top-50 and 65 of the top-100.

The highest-ranked commitment is corner Travis Hunter, the No. 2 recruit, who picked Florida State. Defensive end Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy, the No. 4 recruit, who committed to Oklahoma on Tuesday, is the next highest, followed by cornerback Domani Jackson, who chose USC, at No. 6 overall.

Alabama has two five-stars committed with offensive tackle Tyler Booker and defensive end Jeremiah Alexander, and the Crimson Tide also have the most top-100 commitments of any class with seven. Georgia is next with six, followed by Penn State, Texas A&M and Oklahoma, which each have five.

Below, we look at the important numbers, the key prospects and the broader recruiting landscape across the country.

Top uncommitted prospects

The opposite side of those numbers means that there are 35 top-100 recruits still uncommitted with only a few months until the early signing period.

With nine five-stars still uncommitted and 12 of the top 25, there are some big names still left for teams to add to their classes. Because there are so many highly ranked recruits uncommitted, the class rankings could change significantly throughout the next few weeks and into December.
