The trendy thing to do as a recruit these days is enroll early in college. It gives a recruit a head start on getting comfortable in his new environment, used to going to class and learning the playbook.
Another great thing about enrolling early is that it allows a prospect to participate in spring practices. By the time training camp starts, many recruits who enroll early actually feel like redshirt freshmen.
The 2014 class has a group of prospects who are set to enroll early at the school they are committed to.
Alabama will be getting a pair of 5-star commitments on campus soon, while Florida will get a much-needed quarterback for the spring. Also, Tennessee's headliner will be in Knoxville before most of its recruiting class arrives.
