    National signing day represents the time when colleges across the nation celebrate the arrival of a new class of prospects destined to lead each program to success in the near future.

    Recruits can come with the same type of fanfare as Jadeveon Clowney did at South Carolina or be like Oregon's Marcus Mariota and fly under the radar during the transition to the college level.

    A handful of the nation’s elite recruits have already enrolled at their schools of choice while others are either deciding at the final moment or solidifying the commitments made earlier in the process.

    Stay tuned as Bleacher Report keeps you updated on when the nation’s top 100 overall recruits in the 2015 cycle are signed, sealed and delivered.

    Top 100 rankings courtesy of 247Sports Composite Rankings.   

1. Trent Thompson, DT, 6’3”, 313 Lbs

1 of 100

    Where Trent Thompson is headed: signed with Georgia. 

    Thompson recorded 86 tackles for loss and 21 sacks over the final three years of his prep career, which illustrates the type of disruptive force he can be at the next level. He’s practically unblockable one-on-one, and he’s athletic enough to make plays when he’s required to move laterally. Thompson is a freakish talent who is capable of performing at a high level in the trenches of the SEC early in his career.

2. Martez Ivey, OT, 6’6”, 275 Lbs

2 of 100

    Where Martez Ivey is headed: signed with Florida. 

    Ivey is a dominant force as a run-blocker who helped lead Apopka (Florida) High School to a state title as a senior. He’s got a great frame suitable for adding size and strength, and he’s a nimble athlete with long arms that can frustrate defensive ends in pass-blocking situations. Ivey has the long-term potential to be a dominating left tackle at the next level.

3. Byron Cowart, DE, 6’4”, 250 Lbs

3 of 100

    Where Byron Cowart is headed: committed to Auburn.

    Cowart asserted himself as one of the nation’s most dominant players during the week of the Under Armour All-America Game, as noted by Josh Newberg of Noles247. When he’s on top of his game, he’s tough to block because of his power and speed around the edge. Given his frame and athleticism, Cowart is a threat to become an impact player early in his college career.

4. Iman Marshall, CB, 6’1”, 190 Lbs

4 of 100

    Where Iman Marshall is headed: committed to USC. 

    Marshall shines as a lockdown corner who has the size to match up against bigger receivers and the speed to stick with shiftier pass-catchers. He’s also an elite gunner on special teams. The 5-star standout, who is the nation’s top corner and the top prospect from California in the 2015 cycle, brings a skill set that translates favorably to the next level.

5. Derwin James, S, 6’2”, 201 Lbs

5 of 100

    Where Derwin James is headed: enrolled at Florida State. 

    James is the rare safety prospect who can play with equal effectiveness in the box or roaming as a center fielder in coverage. Florida State has seen its share of impact freshmen defensive backs in recent years, and James—who is already on campus as an early enrollee—has the skill set to carry on that tradition next fall.

6. Kahlil McKenzie, DT, 6’3”, 354 Lbs

6 of 100

    Where Kahlil McKenzie is headed: signed with Tennessee.

    The son of Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, the younger McKenzie brings an NFL frame to the table at defensive tackle. He’s a player who demands double-teams because of his size and power. At 354 pounds, he’s still athletic enough to chase plays from sideline to sideline, which makes him a unique talent.

7. CeCe Jefferson, DE, 6’2”, 275 Lbs

7 of 100

    247Sports.com

    Where CeCe Jefferson is headed: committed to Florida. 

    Jefferson, who rates as the nation’s second-best strong-side defensive end prospect in the 2015 class, is one of the more polished pass-rushers in this cycle. He’s got a great blend of speed and power that helps him create havoc for opposing quarterbacks.

8. Josh Sweat, DE, 6’5”, 240 Lbs

8 of 100

    Where Josh Sweat is headed: enrolled at Florida State. 

    Sweat is another athletic freak Jimbo Fisher was able to land in FSU's 2015 class. He’s got the athleticism of a tight end, but he’s a blur rushing the passer off the edge. Given the Seminoles' struggles to generate a pass rush a year ago, Sweat figures to have every opportunity of finding the field early in his career.

9. Kevin Toliver II, CB, 6’2”, 185 Lbs

9 of 100

    Where Kevin Toliver II is headed: enrolled at LSU. 

    Toliver is the prototypical bigger corner that coaches in college and the NFL are eagerly searching for. He excels at jamming receivers at the line and throwing them off their routes. He’s a lockdown corner who matches up with the bigger receivers at the next level.

10. Malik Jefferson, LB, 6’3”, 215 Lbs

10 of 100

    Where Malik Jefferson is headed: enrolled at Texas.

    Jefferson, who ran a blistering time of 4.39 seconds in the 40-yard dash during SPARQ testing at The Opening, per Andrew Drennen of Student Sports, won the Butkus Award as the nation’s top prep linebacker. He’s a physical force versus the run, but his speed and athleticism help him shine in pass coverage. He’s a candidate to be a future stud in head coach Charlie Strong’s defense.

11. Calvin Ridley, WR, 6’0”, 170 Lbs

11 of 100

    Where Calvin Ridley is headed: signed with Alabama.

    The last time Alabama pulled a top receiver prospect out of the South Florida area, it hit the jackpot with Amari Cooper. Ridley, who averaged nearly 28 yards per catch on his 41 receptions as a junior, is the premier deep threat in the 2015 cycle. He’s likely to be one of the players Tide offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin turns to next fall in hopes of replacing Cooper.

12. Josh Rosen, QB, 6’4”, 205 Lbs

12 of 100

    Where Josh Rosen is headed: enrolled at UCLA.

    Rosen is the nation’s top-rated quarterback prospect in the 2015 cycle. He’s got the arm strength, intangibles and athleticism to be an impact player early in his career. The 5-star signal-caller threw for 3,186 yards and 29 touchdowns during his senior season.

13. Terry Beckner Jr., DT, 6’4”, 293 Lbs

13 of 100

    Where Terry Beckner Jr. is headed: signed with Missouri. 

    Beckner recorded 235 tackles from his defensive tackle spot over his final two prep seasons, which illustrates his ability to get in the backfield and create havoc. He’s versatile enough to log snaps at defensive end in certain looks. The 5-star defender is the top prospect from the state of Illinois in the 2015 cycle.

14. Daylon Mack, DT, 6’1”, 330 Lbs

14 of 100

    Where Daylon Mack is headed: signed with Texas A&M.

    Texas A&M, the school Mack initially committed to before reopening his recruitment in December, appears to have the inside track at landing him again, per GigEm247. As he displayed in an MVP performance at the Under Armour All-America Game, Mack is a disruptive force with a quick first step who is tough to keep out of the backfield.

15. Tarvarus McFadden, CB, 6’2”, 198 Lbs

15 of 100

    Where Tarvarus McFadden is headed: signed with Florida State.

    McFadden is a jumbo corner who moves like a player who's 30 pounds lighter. That type of athleticism is what makes him one of the elite talents in the 2015 cycle. McFadden, who is the only true corner on FSU’s commit list, has a great shot of logging snaps next fall.

16. Canton Kaumatule, DE, 6’7”, 290 Lbs

16 of 100

    Where Canton Kaumatule is headed: enrolled at Oregon.

    Oregon has had success recruiting in Hawaii in recent years, and it scored a major victory in landing the state’s top prospect in 2015 in Kaumatule. The 5-star defensive end, who is already enrolled at Oregon, is a rare talent who has the size and athleticism necessary to step in and become a contributor right away.

17. Keisean Lucier-South, DE, 6’4”, 208 Lbs

17 of 100

    Where Keisean Lucier-South is headed: signed with UCLA.

    Lucier-South is a rangy defensive end who also has the ability to play outside linebacker in certain schemes. The 5-star pass-rusher’s speed around the edge and his length make him unblockable at times for offensive tackles. Lucier-South committed to the Bruins over Michigan, Oklahoma and Oregon, among others.

18. Deon Cain, WR, 6’2”, 194 Lbs

18 of 100

    Where Deon Cain is headed: signed with Clemson. 

    Cain, who played quarterback on the prep level, is an explosive talent who can beat defenses deep or take short passes and turn them into big plays. That playmaking ability makes him a natural fit in Clemson’s high-octane offense. Cain rates as the nation’s third-best wideout in the 2015 class.

19. George Campbell, WR, 6’3”, 184 Lbs

19 of 100

    Where George Campbell is headed: enrolled at Florida State.

    Campbell is a freakish athlete who poses problems for corners because of his size and his sub-4.4-second time in the 40-yard dash. The Sunshine State standout recorded combined totals of 61 catches for 1,535 yards and 12 touchdowns over the last two years. Campbell is already enrolled at Florida State—where he will team up with another pair of highly touted receivers from the 2014 class in Travis Rudolph and Ermon Lane.

20. Kendall Sheffield, CB, 6’0”, 181 Lbs

20 of 100

    Where Kendall Sheffield is headed: signed with Alabama. 

    Sheffield is a speedy corner who recorded a total of eight interceptions over the final three years of his prep career. He’s also a physical presence in run support. The Lone Star State standout is also a force in track, a sport in which he plans to participate in at the next level.

21. Blake Barnett, QB, 6’5”, 200 Lbs

21 of 100

    Where Blake Barnett is headed: enrolled at Alabama. 

    Barnett committed to Notre Dame back in November 2013, but he backed off that pledge early last summer. The 5-star passer subsequently committed to Alabama two weeks later, choosing the Tide over Oregon. Barnett ranks as the nation’s second-best pro-style signal-caller and the No. 5 player from California.

22. Mitch Hyatt, OT, 6’5”, 272 Lbs

22 of 100

    Where Mitch Hyatt is headed: enrolled at Clemson.

    Hyatt is one of three 5-star prospects Dabo Swinney landed, and the athletic future left tackle has already joined the Tigers' program as an early enrollee. Hyatt needs to add some weight before he can contribute, but his long arms and nimble footwork are traits that indicate a bright future for the metro Atlanta stud.

23. Rasheem Green, DT, 6’5”, 275 Lbs

23 of 100

    Where Rasheem Green is headed: committed to USC.

    It will be a Pac-12 battle for the 5-star Green—who is the nation’s No. 5 defensive tackle and the sixth-best prospect from the Golden State in the 2015 cycle. Green has a quick first step that allows him to penetrate gaps and blow up run plays. Considering he recorded 14 sacks as a junior, he’s also got the ability to get to the quarterback on passing downs.

24. Christian Wilkins, DT, 6’4”, 290 Lbs

24 of 100

    Where Christian Wilkins is headed: signed with Clemson.

    Wilkins proved himself to be an elite prospect in the 2015 class when he turned in a dominant performance at the Under Armour All-America Game, per Sean Fitz of 247Sports. Wilkins chose Clemson over offers from Boston College, Ohio State, Penn State and Stanford, among others.

25. Christian Kirk, WR, 5’10”, 191 Lbs

25 of 100

    Where Christian Kirk is headed: enrolled at Texas A&M.

    Kirk is a speedster who accounted for 2,879 yards of total offense and 42 total touchdowns while splitting time at running back and receiver during his senior season. The 5-star dynamo who projects at receiver in college has already enrolled at Texas A&M. He chose the Aggies over Arizona State and Auburn, among others.

26. Chuma Edoga, OT, 6’3”, 280 Lbs

26 of 100

    Where Chuma Edoga is headed: enrolled at USC.

    Edoga is an athletic specimen with a frame that’s suitable for adding weight and strength. He’s got great footwork and flexibility for a big man. The 5-star offensive tackle from the metro Atlanta area, who is already enrolled at USC, represents a huge pull for Sarkisian and his staff from the middle of SEC country.

27. Tyron Johnson, WR, 6’1”, 191 Lbs

27 of 100

    Where Tyron Johnson is headed: signed with LSU. 

    Johnson is a smooth receiver prospect who caught 94 passes for 1,589 yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior. The top prospect from the talent-rich state of Louisiana, Johnson will team with last year’s stud receiver recruit, Malachi Dupre, at LSU next fall.

28. Terry Godwin, ATH, 6’0”, 168 Lbs

28 of 100

    Where Terry Godwin is headed: committed to Georgia.

    Godwin, who is rated as the nation’s top athlete, is a dynamic player who projects as receiver on the college level. The 5-star Georgia native, who is also considering Auburn, is simply a handful to deal with when he has the ball in his hands in open space.

29. Daron Payne, DT, 6’2”, 325 Lbs

29 of 100

    Where Daron Payne is headed: signed with Alabama.

    Payne is the perfect fit at nose guard in the Tide’s 3-4 scheme. He’s got the size to clog up gaps and occupy blockers but is athletic enough to penetrate if he’s playing in a 4-3 look. He’s got the physical ability to be a powerful force in the middle early in his career in the trenches of the SEC.

30. Minkah Fitzpatrick, CB, 6’1”, 198 Lbs

30 of 100

    Where Minkah Fitzpatrick is headed: signed with Alabama.

    Fitzpatrick is the nation’s No. 5 corner and the top prospect from New Jersey. The 5-star defender picked off a combined six passes during his sophomore and junior seasons. He’s got the size and athleticism to be the type of physical corner Nick Saban covets at that position.

31. Damien Harris, RB, 5’11”, 205 Lbs

31 of 100

    Where Damien Harris is headed: signed with Alabama.

    Harris rushed for 6,717 yards and 111 touchdowns during his high school career. The Kentucky native, who backed off an initial pledge to Michigan, is rated as the nation’s top running back for the 2015 class.

32. Soso Jamabo, RB, 6’3”, 210 Lbs

32 of 100

    Where Soso Jamabo is headed: signed with UCLA.

    Jamabo is cousins with 4-star Oklahoma offensive lineman Josh Wariboko, per Ryan Bartow of 247Sports. UCLA is the lucky school that could land both players. Jamabo, the No. 4 player overall from the Lone Star State, rushed for 2,279 yards and 44 touchdowns during his senior season.

33. Kyler Murray, QB, 5’10”, 180 Lbs

33 of 100

    Where Kyler Murray is headed: signed with Texas A&M.

    Murray had Aggies fans on the edge of their seats after a mid-January visit to rival Texas. After some tense moments following his trip to Austin, the 5-star dual-threat passer reaffirmed his initial commitment. Murray went 42-0 as a starter at Allen (Texas) High School and won three consecutive state titles during his prep career.

34. Justin Hilliard, LB, 6’0”, 225 Lbs

34 of 100

    Where Justin Hilliard is headed: signed with Ohio State.

    Hilliard and Cornell committed on the same day early in July, which jump-started the Buckeyes' 2015 class. The 5-star linebacker will team with Baker to add a physical punch to the middle level of Urban Meyer’s defense.

35. Osa Masina, LB, 6’4”, 230 Lbs

35 of 100

    Where Osa Masina is headed: signed with USC.

    Masina began USC’s late surge with his commitment to the Trojans in late January. The 5-star linebacker, who doubled as a stud running back in high school, gives the Trojans a versatile defender who can create big plays against the run and pass.

36. Kyle Phillips, DE, 6’4”, 250 Lbs

36 of 100

    Where Kyle Phillips is headed: enrolled at Tennessee.

    Phillips enjoyed a monstrous senior campaign in which he tallied 57.5 tackles—including 22.5 for loss and 13 sacks. The Vols landed the state of Tennessee’s top prospect over the likes of LSU and Ole Miss, among others. Phillips joins Tuttle as another touted defensive line prospect who is already enrolled and getting accustomed to the lay of the land in Knoxville.

37. Maea Teuhema, OL, 6’5”, 340 Lbs

37 of 100

    Where Maea Teuhema is headed: signed with LSU. 

    Teuhema backed off an early pledge to Texas and flipped to LSU in February 2014. The Texas native and Under Armour All-American is a mammoth interior lineman who possesses NFL size and measurables heading into college.

38. Jarrett Stidham, QB, 6’4”, 195 Lbs

38 of 100

    Where Jarrett Stidham is headed: enrolled at Baylor.

    Stidham hails from Stephenville (Texas) High School—which is where his future head coach at Baylor, Art Briles, became a legendary head coach before plying his trade on the college level. Stidham is a dynamic dual-threat passer who enrolled at Baylor last month, and he will join the spring competition to replace departed star quarterback Bryce Petty.

39. Ronald Jones II, RB, 6’0”, 185 Lbs

39 of 100

    Where Ronald Jones II is headed: signed with USC.

    Jones is one of a pair of Texas running backs headed to the West Coast to play for Steve Sarkisian and the Trojans. The metro Dallas product rushed for 4,415 yards and 67 touchdowns over the course of his junior and senior seasons.

40. Jacques Patrick, RB, 6’2”, 230 Lbs

40 of 100

    Where Jacques Patrick is headed: enrolled at Florida State. 

    At 230 pounds, Patrick is a load to bring down for defenses. The Orlando native posted back-to-back seasons with more than 2,000 yards rushing. At Florida State, Patrick figures to battle for carries this spring to earn the right to spell rising sophomore Dalvin Cook in the fall.

41. Porter Gustin, LB, 6’5”, 245 Lbs

41 of 100

    Where Porter Gustin is headed: signed with USC.

    Gustin is one of the top pure athletes in the 2015 class. He also played quarterback for his prep team, but his future likely will involve hunting signal-callers as a beastly outside linebacker. As a senior, Gustin tallied 152 tackles and 10.5 sacks from that position.

42. Damarkus Lodge, WR, 6’3”, 190 Lbs

42 of 100

    Where Damarkus Lodge is headed: signed with Ole Miss.

    Lodge is one of the toughest weapons to cover in this class. Perhaps no 2015 receiver can match his ball skills when the football is in the air. The former Texas A&M pledge caught 63 passes for 1,218 yards and 25 touchdowns during his senior season.

43. Kerryon Johnson, ATH, 6’0”, 200 Lbs

43 of 100

    Where Kerryon Johnson is headed: signed with Auburn.

    Johnson is a versatile talent who could play safety or running back at the next level. He’s likely to join the Tigers' talented stable of rushers when he arrives on the Plains. Johnson picked Auburn over Alabama and Florida State, among others.

44. Deionte Thompson, S, 6’2”, 181 Lbs

44 of 100

    Where Deionte Thompson is headed: enrolled at Alabama.

    Thompson, who also played receiver in high school, showed off his range as a deep safety by snaring a combined 11 interceptions during his sophomore and junior seasons. The Texas native enrolled at Alabama last month—which should help him compete for snaps in a unit that lost both starters from last year’s Tide squad.

45. Brandon Wimbush, QB, 6’2”, 205 Lbs

45 of 100

    Where Brandon Wimbush is headed: signed with Notre Dame.

    Wimbush has one of the strongest arms in the 2015 class. The New Jersey native, who initially committed to Penn State before flipping to the Irish last October, threw for 3,151 yards and 36 scores during his senior season.

46. Derrius Guice, RB, 5’11”, 213 Lbs

46 of 100

    Where Derrius Guice is headed: signed with LSU.

    Guice showed off his versatility in an MVP performance at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl by catching touchdown passes of 92 and 61 yards, according to Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports. The second-best prospect from Louisiana should fit nicely into a backfield that already includes rising sophomore Leonard Fournette.

47. Roquan Smith, LB, 6’2”, 205 Lbs

47 of 100

    Where Roquan Smith is headed: committed to UCLA.

    Smith may be on the light side, but he’s a menacing linebacker who is equally adept at creating big plays against the run or pass. The Under Armour All-American is rated as the fifth-best outside linebacker prospect in the 2015 cycle.

48. Preston Williams, WR, 6’4”, 191 Lbs

48 of 100

    Where Preston Williams is headed: signed with Tennessee.

    Williams brings a mix of size and athleticism that makes him tough to defend one-on-one. The Georgia native caught 95 passes for 2,325 yards and 32 touchdowns over the last two years. He’s the nation’s No. 7 wideout in the 2015 cycle.

49. John Houston, LB, 6’3”, 211 Lbs

49 of 100

    Where John Houston is headed: committed to USC.

    Houston is a tackling machine, as evidenced by his combined 413 tackles over his final three seasons on the prep level. He’s a sure tackler in space, and he’s a three-down linebacker who can stick with backs and receivers in pass coverage.

50. Breiden Fehoko, DT, 6’3”, 290 Lbs

50 of 100

    Where Breiden Fehoko is headed: enrolled at Texas Tech.

    As a junior, the Hawaii native registered 103 tackles—including 20 for loss and a whopping 24.5 sacks with 12 forced fumbles. He’s a penetrating defensive tackle who makes a habit living in the opponent’s backfield.

51. Taj Griffin, RB, 5’10”, 175 Lbs

51 of 100

    Where Taj Griffin is headed: enrolled at Oregon. 

    Griffin is one of the most explosive playmakers in the 2015 cycle. He’s a threat to take it the distance anytime he gets his hands on the ball, which makes him a great fit in Mark Helfrich’s uptempo offense.

52. Javon Patterson, OL, 6’3”, 317 Lbs

52 of 100

    Where Javon Patterson is headed: enrolled at Ole Miss.

    As Simmons notes, Patterson has consistently proved himself to be one of the elite linemen in the 2015 class. He is the top 2015 prospect from Mississippi and the No. 3 offensive guard in the 2015 cycle.

53. Shy Tuttle, DT, 6’3”, 320 Lbs

53 of 100

    Where Shy Tuttle is headed: enrolled at Tennessee.

    Tuttle is part of a Tennessee class that may represent the nation’s best haul of defensive linemen. As a sophomore in high school, Tuttle registered 97 tackles and 18 sacks. He’s a powerful force who demands a double-team when he’s on top of his game.

54. Lester Cotton, OL, 6’4”, 325 Lbs

54 of 100

    Where Lester Cotton is headed: signed with Alabama.

    Few interior offensive line prospects emerge from high school with the size and strength necessary to play right away upon entering the college level. Cotton may just be the exception to the rule. He’s a mauler in the run game and moves light on his feet for a player who carries 325 pounds on his frame.

55. Drew Richmond, OT, 6’5”, 310 Lbs

55 of 100

    Where Drew Richmond is headed: signed with Tennessee.

    Richmond, who committed to Ole Miss back in September, decommitted from the Rebels and looks to be headed to Tennessee following a trip to Knoxville last weekend. The nation’s third-best offensive tackle is an impressive athlete who possesses a great frame and solid footwork entering the next level.

56. Donte Jackson, ATH, 5’11”, 164 Lbs

56 of 100

    Where Donte Jackson is headed: signed with LSU.

    LSU scored a major victory over Georgia when Jackson selected his home-state Tigers over the Bulldogs in late January. As Barton Simmons of 247Sports notes, Jackson shined playing corner during the week of practices for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

57. Jalen Dalton, DE, 6’5”, 235 Lbs

57 of 100

    Where Jalen Dalton is headed: enrolled at North Carolina. 

    Dalton is a beastly pass-rusher who has the length and athleticism to give offensive tackles fits in keeping him away from the quarterback. The Under Armour All-American chose the Tar Heels over Virginia Tech, and he is already on campus in Chapel Hill, where he will participate in spring drills.

58. Jamal Peters, S, 6’2”, 206 Lbs

58 of 100

    247Sports.com

    Where Jamal Peters is headed: signed with Mississippi State.

    Peters is the nation’s No. 3-rated safety in the 2015 class and the second-best player in the Magnolia State in the 2015 cycle. As a senior, Peters notched 58 tackles with 20 pass breakups and five interceptions. It’s that type of ball-hawking ability that makes him a candidate to see the field early in his college career.

59. Larry Scott, RB, 6’2”, 228 Lbs

59 of 100

    Where Larry Scott is headed: signed with Michigan State.

    Over his sophomore and junior seasons on the prep level, Scott rushed for combined totals of 3,295 yards and 44 touchdowns. Scott is a physical back who has the ability to compete for carries in a Spartans backfield that will have to replace Jeremy Langford.

60. Marvell Tell, S, 6’2”, 188 Lbs

60 of 100

    Where Marvell Tell is headed: signed with USC.

61 of 100

    Where Jerome Baker is headed: signed with Ohio State. 

    Baker was a two-way standout playing running back and linebacker at Benedictine High School in Cleveland, but his future at the next level is likely on defense. While he’s a standout on the gridiron, Baker is committed to making a difference off the field as well. According to ESPN’s Tom VanHaaren, Baker started a campaign last summer to spread awareness about sexual assault and violence against women.

62. Aliz’e Jones, TE, 6’5”, 218 Lbs

62 of 100

    Where Aliz’e Jones is headed: signed with Notre Dame.

    Jones is the nation’s top tight end prospect in the 2015 class. The Nevada standout—who was initially committed to UCLA before flipping to the Irish last month—enjoyed a strong senior season in which he hauled in 41 receptions for 930 yards and 13 touchdowns.

63. Leo Lewis, LB, 6’3”, 225 Lbs

63 of 100

    Where Leo Lewis is headed: signed with Mississippi State. 

    Lewis' recruitment has had its share of drama and intrigue. Last week, the nation’s top inside linebacker prospect decommitted from Ole Miss. He initially committed to Alabama before switching to the Rebels. His recruitment will finally come to a close on Wednesday, with LSU and Mississippi State fighting it out for his signature.

64. Richie Petitbon, OL, 6’4”, 301 Lbs

64 of 100
