There is a little over a month until the early signing period starts in December, which means college football coaches are putting recruiting efforts into full gear.

With only 65 ESPN 300 prospects uncommitted, there are going to be plenty of battles down the stretch to close out classes. There are still six five-star recruits on the board, 13 ranked in the top 50 who are uncommitted and 27 uncommitted recruits in the top 100.

With little time left in this cycle until the first signing period, we looked at some of the more highly rated recruits remaining for each class in the top 25 of the class rankings.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide: WR Shazz Preston
ESPN 300 rank: 15

This position could be any number of recruits because Alabama still has a lot of highly sought-after recruits on the board. The staff is after USC five-star corner commit Domani Jackson, cornerbacks Denver Harris and Earl Little Jr., Kentucky offensive line commit Kiyaunta Goodwin, defensive lineman Shemar James and quite a few others. Preston is the pick, though, because the staff has only one ESPN 300 receiver committed in the class in Aaron Anderson. It seems as though the coaches will land an elite corner or two to fill that need, but Preston is one of the few highly ranked receivers left who could join this class. He recently took a visit to Alabama and has the Crimson Tide in his top four with Georgia, LSU and Texas.

2. Georgia Bulldogs: S Kamari Wilson
ESPN 300 rank: 14
