Of the 46 uncommitted college football recruits ranked in the ESPN 300 from the 2023 class, 21 are from Florida or Texas.
Those two states are typically stocked full of high-end recruits year in and year out. This year, 67 ESPN 300 recruits are from Florida and 43 are from Texas. It's no surprise to see such a high number of talented prospects, but with only so many uncommitted recruits left, those two states could help shape a few recruiting classes over the next few months.
Some of the highest-ranked recruits from both states are set to announce commitments, and some are moving closer to their decisions. We break down seven notable prospects from those states, the schools they're considering and predict where they might end up when they announce their commitments.

McClain is the top cornerback in the class and the top prospect in the state of Florida. He's a 6-foot-2, 165-pound prospect and a five-star in the class. He had been considering Alabama, BYU, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Ohio State and Penn State, among others, but is likely focusing on Alabama, Florida and Miami at this point.
