The early signing period is here, and there will be plenty to keep an eye on, as some of the top high school football prospects will sign their national letters of intent between Wednesday and Friday.

Last year was the first year of the early signing period, and we saw 221 of the ESPN 300 recruits sign their letters of intent, locking them into the school of their choice. College coaches are expecting much of the same this year and anticipate that most of their recruiting classes will be signed by the end of this period.

Check below throughout the day for updates on that front.

The top four ranked recruits in the country are among those expected to sign, with No. 1 Kayvon Thibodeaux signing with Oregon, No. 2 Nolan Smith signing with Georgia, No. 3 Kenyon Green signing to Texas A&M and No. 4 Pierce Quick signing with Alabama.

As is the case with February signing day, plenty of big-name recruits will be announcing their decisions live on television. ESPN will broadcast the early signing period starting Wednesday on ESPN 2 from 10 a.m. to noon ET, then will switch over to ESPNU from noon to 3 p.m.

There are some other big-name recruits planning to announce their decisions outside of the broadcast as well, including five-star defensive end Zach Harrison and athlete Tyrique Stevenson.

Currently, Alabama, Texas A&M, Georgia, Oregon and Michigan are holding on to the top five classes in the country, but a lot can change throughout the day. We’ll update the Class Rankings top 50 every hour as players send in their letters.

Some of the biggest names planning to sign today have yet to commit, though. Here’s where we expect them to sign.
