Crying babies and Chucky dolls
Tommy Bush (No. 10 WR in ESPN 300) agrees to attend the University of Georgia, which seems to upset his niece.
Four-star DE Andrew Chatfield (No. 159 in ESPN 300) from Plantation, Florida, signs with the Gators.
Saban strikes back
You didn’t really expect Alabama and Nick Saban to stay quiet today, did you? Shortly after Texas A&M flipped an ESPN 300 Alabama commit, the Crimson Tide landed the day’s best available player in CB Patrick Surtain Jr., the nation’s No. 5 player.

Dawgs have their day … again
He is the 13th five-star player to sign with Georgia since star rankings were introduced in 2010, tied with Florida State for 2nd-most by any school

ESPN 300 linebacker Otis Reese flips from Michigan to Georgia. The Dawgs now have 16 ESPN 300 commitments in the No. 1 ranked class.
Georgia has now flipped two ESPN 300 linebackers on signing day, the first with Otis Reese from Michigan and now Georgia prospect Quay Walker, who flipped from Alabama.
Walker is the No. 73 ranked prospect overall and announced his decision to flip after taking a few visits late in the process.
Ohio State lands top OL
Nick Petit-Frère, No. 13 overall and No. 1 OT in the ESPN3 300, commits to Ohio State. He is the highest-rated offensive lineman to commit to Ohio State in ESPN 300 era (since 2006) and breaks a streak of 7 straight seasons where the SEC signed the top-ranked offensive tackle.
Jimbo Fisher flips Bama recruit
The transition class for Fisher at Texas A&M is coming together nicely with the flip and signing of ESPN 300 defensive lineman Bobby Brown from Alabama. Brown had gone back and forth committing to both programs during the process before flipping and signing with the Aggies this morning. Texas A&M got Brown on campus last weekend, and secured the flip from the National Champions. The Aggies began the day with the No. 24 ranked class, but could be a big mover into the Top 15 with two or three more key wins today.
Jimbo Fisher closing this class out strong. Texas A&M adds another ESPN 300 prospect in QB James Foster, the fifth-ranked dual threat QB in the country and No. 124 overall in the ESPN 300. Foster chose the Aggies over FSU, Alabama and LSU.
It’s signing day … make sure to hydrate
Recruiting gets in the way of the Oregon defensive coordinator’s new diet.
It time to get in shape. Up every morning running ‘run forest run’ and off yes the Pepsi for 1 month just to check out self discipline! Let’s see what happens…GO DUCKS!
— Jim Leavitt (@CoachJimLeavitt) February 5, 2018
Wow!! This is tough! No Pepsi and it’s noon on first day. It doesn’t help when all of you are teasing me with pictures of Pepsi! Let’s get through day one! Go Ducks!
— Jim Leavitt (@CoachJimLeavitt) February 5, 2018
Ok. I don’t care what you think of me but I couldn’t take it anymore. We have got a huge push on this recruiting and I had to open a cold can of Pepsi!! Go Ducks! I’ll try again after signing day!!

Coburn ends the drama
Texas fans can rest easy. Keondre Coburn‘s letter of intent is in.
— Texas Football (@TexasFootball) February 7, 2018
The ESPN 300 DT has long been committed to Texas, but did not sign in the early signing period, causing some concerns as to whether his recruitment was a done deal.
FSU starts early
Willie Taggart just picked up the spear that is outside the war room and brought it inside.
The No. 162-ranked prospect out of Seffner, Florida, had been committed to coach Willie Taggart at Oregon, but decommitted in December. Lamar now rejoins Taggart at FSU and adds to a class that has been growing since December.
Florida State continued its successful signing day by landing ESPN 300 athlete Tre’Shaun Harrison. The No. 166 ranked prospect had been committed to Willie Taggart at Oregon and will now follow Taggart to Florida State.
The Seminoles have moved up over 20 spots in the recruiting class rankings since the start of the early signing period, currently ranked at No. 15 overall.
The Florida State war chant breaks out as coaches and staff learn that ESPN top-15 WR Tre’shaun Harrison announces his commitment to the Seminoles.
