The updated 2023 On300 dropped Monday. While most of the nation’s top recruits have already announced their commitments, a smaller number are still mulling over their options. This includes 16 of the top 100 prospects in the rankings.
Here is where things stand in each of those 16 players’ recruitments, according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine.

On3 RPM: Alabama 49.4%, Ohio State 41.2%, Florida 7.8%, Notre Dame 1.3%

On300 Ranking: No. 4
On3 NIL Valuation: $194k
On3 RPM: Ohio State 69.8%, Georgia 21.2%, Miami 6.9%, Alabama 1.4%

On3 NIL Valuation: $213k
On3 RPM: Alabama 40.5%, Georgia 28.5%, Auburn 23.8%, Florida 4.5%, Texas A&M 1.0%

School: Concord (N.C.) Jay M. Robinson
On300 Ranking: No. 20

Five-star TE Duce Robinson
School: Phoenix Pinnacle
On300 Ranking: No. 21
On3 NIL Valuation: $195k
On3 RPM: USC 56.7%, Georgia 33.3%, Texas 6.2%

On3 NIL Valuation: $202k
On3 RPM: Alabama 74.0%, Auburn 14.6%, Florida 4.5%, Georgia 3.0%

On3 NIL Valuation: $309k
On3 RPM: Michigan 35.2%, LSU 29.9%, South Carolina 23.3%, Maryland 3.9%, Miami 2.0%, Penn State 1.4%
The Skinny: Harbor has had some recent shakeups in his recruitment recently, including the emergence of Georgia in his recruitment. He said Sunday that the Bulldogs are likely to receive an official visit, replacing Miami. Harbor is on track to commit in February.

On3 NIL Valuation: $6.4k
On3 RPM: Penn State 58.9%, Georgia 38.8%

On300 Ranking: No. 47
On3 NIL Valuation: $241k
On3 RPM: LSU 84.0%, Alabama 6.5%, Florida 3.3%

On3 NIL Valuation: $243k
On3 RPM: Texas 87.5%, Texas A&M 7.9%, Oklahoma 1.7%

On300 Ranking: No. 73
On3 NIL Valuation: $222k
On3 RPM: Miami 84.7%, Florida 11.2%, Michigan 1.0%

On300 Ranking: No. 76
On3 NIL Valuation: $211k
On3 RPM: Ohio State 48.0%, USC 31.0%, Oregon 16.2%, Alabama 2.3%

On300 Ranking: No. 82
On3 NIL Valuation: $6k
On3 RPM: Texas 99.9%

On3 NIL Valuation: $210k
