Players in the Class of 2023 are starting to make their commitments before their senior season begins. Of the 60-plus players in the TSF coverage area with Division I FBS offers it appears that Cincinnati, Ohio State and the Big 10 are early winner. Cincinnati, Ohio State is shaping up to be delectable offering of recruits. There are no less than  offers heading into the season.

There is some big time talent that has yet to commit especially at the receiver position and in the secondary. Springfield pass catchers Anthony Brown and Shawn Thigpen are still prized possessions for a couple of Power 5 schools.

Here is a look at TSF area players who currently have offers and those who are verbally committed to Division I FBS schools.
