No. 27 OLB Keith Maguire Jr. Drops Loaded Top 5

Malvern Prep's Keith Maguire Jr. makes a crazy one-handed touchdown catch.

Keith Maguire Jr. is one of the top linebackers in the class of 2019. 247Sports' composite rankings only have him as a three-star recruit. However, he has offers from among the biggest programs in college football. Now, Keith Maguire's top schools are out.

Maguire stars for Malvern Prep in Pennsylvania. He is the No. 6 player in the Keystone State. Interestingly, neither of major in-state schools crack the list. It does not appear that Penn State has offered at this point, and his status with Pitt is unknown.

He is not hurting for options, though. Four of the top five schools on Maguire's list are bona fide national powers.

Here are Keith Maguire's top schools:

He put out the list via Twitter. He says that he will commit to one of the five—Alabama, Clemson, North Carolina, Notre Dame, and Ohio State—so it does not sound like he's considering others at this point.

Of course things can change quickly in recruitments. Baylor, Michigan, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia are among his many other big offers.

Overall, 247Sports ranks Maguire as the No. 430 recruit in the class of 2019. He is the No. 27 outside linebacker in the nation.

Notre Dame could be the favorite to land Keith Maguire Jr. Clark Lea is reportedly the lead recruiter in the effort to land him

Six recruiting experts have submitted predictions as to where Maguire will commit over at 247Sports' crystal ball. All of them think he will be a member of the Fighting Irish.

Keith Maguire Jr. has been to a few of these top schools recently. Since late March, he has been Ohio State, Alabama, and Clemson. According to 247, he plans to make his commitment sometime this summer, and does not want to begin his senior season without making a decision.
