Well, the college football season is just a week old, but we are already starting to see it's impact on the recruiting landscape - Clemson says, hello, you guys. Here are your recruiting links for this week.

North Carolina offered in-state wide receiver Carl Tucker (2015). The Cornelius, N.C., native, who grew up a Tar Heel fan, was eagerly expecting the offer.

Steve Williams breaks down N.C. State commit Coult Culler and one of the Pack's top targets - Kentavius Street. Their two high school teams squared off against each other last Friday.

William Cameron is only a junior, but the 5-9 speed maven from Durham, N.C., is already being targeted by several local school: NCSU, Duke and Clemson.

Raekwon McMillan (man, that's an awesome name) is the top linebacker in the 2014 class. He was in Death Valley last Saturday to witness that thriller between Clemson and Georgia. McMillan was, ostensibly, very impressed with what he saw, too.

Taj Griffin is being recruited by both Clemson and UGA. The four-star athlete was in attendance for last week's match-up. After the game, Griffin could be found hanging in the Tiger's locker room.

Clemson gained two verbals over the weekend, too: safties Jeff Gibson (2014, former NCSU commit) and Van Smith  (2015).

Offensive Linemen are the lifeblood of Paul Johnson's triple option attack. This Wednesday, the Yellow Jackets landed a commitment from Jake Whitley - a two-star offensive tackle recruit from South Carolina.

Wide receiver Jabari Greenwood (2015) is being sought-after by several ACC school - Virginia Tech, Pitt, Maryland and Virginia. It looks as though Virginia Tech has the inside edge.

J.J. Cosentino, a four-star QB commit to FSU, is a native of Pittsburgh and was in attendance Monday night to watch the Jameis Winston Show.

Jim Grobe and his Demon Deacons are venturing up to Big Ten country to try to nab OLB prospect Dameon Willis. Hear what he had to say about where Wake stands in his recruitment.

Scott Shafer and Syracuse picked-up a verbal commitment from Connecticut running back Ervin Phillips, who was at the Orange's game against Penn State last Saturday.

You won't find better high school football talent in America than in South Florida. Al Golden's Hurricanes have offered Tavares Martin, a four-star wide receiver from Lake Worth, Fla.

Notre Dame is starting to target 2015 football prospects. One of the first guys on their radar is Dechaun Holiday - a safety from San Marcos, Calif.

Boston College target Tegray Scales (OLB, 2014) was in action last Friday; check out his highlights here.

Isaiah Wilkins - the stepson of NBA legend Dominique Wilkins - verbaled to Virginia over Labor Day Weekend. Wilkins is a 6-7 small forward, and currently plays his high school ball in Georgia. He is the second commit of the Cavs' 2014 class.

From Dan Collins: Big man Isaac Haas verbals to the Wake Forest basketball program this week.
