While Wednesday is the celebrated day when recruits sign their national letters of intent, some recruits have already signed with their colleges. Those recruits have been allowed to sign because they qualify academically to enroll early and begin working with the team for spring practice.
Spring practice, or "spring ball" as some call it, is crucial for all programs. It gives the coaches a chance have about two weeks' worth of solid practice time with the team to prepare for fall camp. Most of the recruits who sign with schools on Wednesday won't be on their respective college campuses until the early summer.
Those who have already signed and enrolled early will be able to start working out now and practice with their college teams in the spring. For this slideshow, we're here to look at the 10 recruits who are early enrollees and who will benefit the most from spring practice.
