With the NCAA rolling out a new early signing period in December, some of the overall thrill of National Signing Day maybe lost for some, but there is still a lot of intrigue left to be had. Of the Top 50 players ranked by 247Sports, nine are left uncommitted and unsigned heading into Wednesday. Each player could prove to be of immense value as a first-year starter, future All-Conference performer, or even an All-American before their career is finished. Let’s not forget that there are always players that flip their verbal commitment before putting pen to paper closing out their recruiting process adding even more drama to the day.

Heading into NSD, a new king sits atop the recruiting rankings throne – Ohio State. The Buckeyes, for now, are in position to have unseated Alabama’s long run as recruiting kings. But, the Crimson Tide, at 18 commits, has room to add as many as seven players to the class and could make a last-minute push to the top with several high-profile players still mulling over their decision. Another team that could make a big leap forward on Wednesday is USC. The Trojans have just 14 players to the 2018 roster, with three 5-star recruits and 10 4-star talents. The Clemson Tigers are another team with some wiggle room. The reigning ACC champs have just 15 commits, five 5-stars and five 4-star prospects.

What to do about the Georgia Bulldogs? Georgia has capitalized on their playoff run to the title game sitting at No. 2 overall with six 5-star commits and 12 4-star players. If the Bulldogs add just one 5-star recruit, they could be the new recruiting champs of the SEC and the nation.

As National Signing Day unfolds, RNG will be here to update the latest signings to see which team moves up the recruiting rankings and where all the top players land.
