— Auburn landed Markaviest Bryant in a big recruiting victory over LSU. Bryant is the ninth TOP 300 prospect to commit to Auburn, but the first defensive end in the entire class.

— Alabama scored another TOP 300 level prospect on signing day, as wide receiver Henry Ruggs III selected the Crimson Tide over Florida State. Ruggs joins a dynamic group of receivers headed to Alabama, as Jerry Jeudy and Tyrell Shavers are also headed to the Crimson Tide.

— High school teammates Damion Daniels and Chevin Calloway committed moments apart but will be headed to different conferences, as Daniels, a four-star defensive tackle, selected Nebraska and became the ninth four-star commitment for the Cornhuskers. Calloway is headed to Arkansas, where he became the top-ranked prep prospect for the Razorbacks.

— After flipping quarterback Braxton Burmeister and athlete Darrian McNeal and landing defensive tackle Austin Faoliu after he decommitted from Arizona, Oregon flipped guard Cody Shear.

— BYU has made big statement with defensive end Alden Tofa, who committed to the Cougars over Utah. That gives the Cougars two of the top five prospects in the state of Utah with a real shot to also land safety Chaz Ah You.

— Pittsburgh added four-star defensive tackle Jaylen Twyman over offers from Missouri, South Carolina and others. There was a significant hole at the position for the Panthers in this class, as Twyman is the first defensive tackle commitment for Pittsburgh in this 2017 group.

— New Baylor coach Matt Rhule took over a tough situation with the Bears and has built a top-40 class in the span of a few weeks. Baylor added defensive ends Justin Harris and B.J. Thompson on signing day. Harris was a big recruiting win against LSU, while Thompson is a former Washington State commit. The Bears put together a big run at defensive end to finish this class, as those two join defensive end Demarco Artis, who selected the Bears Tuesday night.

— Miami (FL) and Mississippi State also made strong moves this morning making their way into the National Rankings.
