National Signing Day is finally upon us. Schools all over the country have been courting this high school kids for over a year and it all comes down to today. Rivals.com has the Gators at number 1 right now, but there is talk that the Gators could lose two of their commits. Offensive Lineman Ricky Barnum made a trip to Michigan last weekend and is said to be torn between the two programs, and Defensive Back Ramon Buchanon made a trip to Miami this past weekend and is still deciding as well. While it would be nice to have both of them in the class, even if they lose both the Gators will have another top recruiting class under Urban Meyer.
The classes will become official starting around 8 am. Other than the 2 commits that are now debating, the Gators are not looking to any surprises in the class. Meyer has another solid class and has moved onto the 2009 class already.
While the Gators are pretty set in their class and are not waiting on anyone, the same cannot be said for other schools across the country. Alabama has gotten a huge influx of recruits in the past couple of days and are now number 2 in rivals.com class rankings. The number 1 recruit in the country, Terelle Pryor, will finally make his long awaited decision between Michigan and Ohio State. Michigan has pushed very hard for his services, but I think in the end he will be a Buckeye.
Today will be a huge day for college football and high school players across the country. We will try and keep it updated all day.
