RecruitingNation has summoned its writers from around the country to compile a list of the top-10 battles for elite football recruits leading up to February's signing day. We'll update our rankings periodically to reflect a change in a player's status (i.e. new offers, trimmed-down list or a positive/negative official visit). Our writers have debated the list for weeks, but we value your input as well. Voice your opinion on Twitter (@RecruitingESPN) using #BlueChipBattles or vote for which player should hold the No. 1 spot on Facebook.

Here is our panel whom we asked for their takes on the list: Kipp Adams (@KippLAdams), Derek Tyson (@DerekTysonESPN), Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH), Corey Long (@CoreyLong), Erik McKinney (@EMcKinneyESPN), Jared Shanker (@JShankerESPN) Damon Sayles (@DamonSayles) and Dave Hooker (@DaveHookerESPN).
