Early National Signing Day Announcement Watchlist

Nick Saban, Alabama Crimson Tide Football

Nick Saban's next star-studded recruiting class will start to materialize on Wednesday as dozens of the top recruits in the class of 2022 will make their decisions known on Early National Signing Day

Thanks to the introduction of the Early Signing Period, five years ago, high school football players across the country can give themselves an early Christmas present by announcing which college they will attend. A majority of the top recruits in the class of 2022 will do this on Wednesday, instead of waiting until National Signing Day in early February.

Here is a list of the top players (per Rivals) that are slated to announce their college plans on Wednesday, when they will do so, and the schools they are considering.
