Early Signing Period Recruiting Top 150 Player Rankings & Predictions


With the recruiting Early Signing Period kicking off on Wednesday, December 20th, who are the top prospects for the 2018 class and where are they going?

The college football recruiting world is taking a bit of a twist this year, allowing for an early signing period starting December 20th and ending December 22nd. JUCO transfers have until January 15th to sign.

The normal big day is still in early February – the seventh, this year – but this early period allows some players to get in when they have a chance to lock down a spot, and for coaches to know where they stand and what they have to do.

No one is quite sure how this is all going to work out.

Here’s the list of the top 150 prospects that we work off of, along with some very, very broad guesses and predictions on where they’re going to go.

Horseshoes, hand grenades, and recruiting rankings. As long as you get them relatively close, you’re fine.

At the moment, COMMIT means verbal – it can still be changed.
