College football signing day tracker 2021: Live updates, top recruits & classes for early signing period


The fourth year of college football’s early signing period added a few difficult hurdles for coaches and recruiters to overcome.

The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic not only limited campus visits for would-be recruits, but essentially eliminated all in-person meetings that could otherwise have taken place between players and coaches. How that affects the outcome of this year’s class remains to be seen, but one thing is apparent already:

Pandemic or no, college football’s top teams will do just fine in the 2021 recruiting class.

WEEK 15 PROJECTIONS: Playoff | Bowls

Heading into Wednesday’s 72-hour early signing period, No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Ohio State created a significant distance between themselves and the rest of the pack. Teams such as Georgia, Clemson and LSU also stand to pull in elite classes that have legitimate College Football Playoff aspirations.

Even so, there are a few battles still left to be won, such as No. 1 overall recruit Korey Foreman. The strong-side defensive end seems to have narrowed his choices to USC and LSU. Other players, such as strong-side defensive end J.T. Tuimoloau (No. 3 overall), offensive tackle Tristan Leigh (No. 11 overall) and inside linebacker Terrence Lewis (No. 16 overall) remain uncommitted as well.

Follow along as Sporting News tracks the biggest commitments and signings from the early signing period:
