If the Class of 2006 were to form a Rock 'n Roll band it would be called the De-Commitments.
A increasing trend in the recent past has seen the floodgates open as prized prospects such as QB Mitch Mustain, DB Jai Eugene, WR Damian Williams, DL Marcus Tillman and lineman Antonio Logan-El led a group that all reneged on verbal commitments. Mustain eventually decided to stick with Arkanas but the remaining switches have led to one of the most anticipated signing days in years.
Two Top 10 players on CSTV recruiting expert Tom Lemming's Top 100 will announce their destinations today. They are No. 4 Gerald McCoy, a 6-5, 300-pound defensive lineman from Oklahoma City and No. 8 Andre Smith, a 6-5, 320-pound defensive lineman from Birmingham, Al.
Two players on the fringe of the Top 10, Nos. 11 and 12, RBs LeSean McCoy (6-0, 208, Harrisburg, Pa) and C.J. Spiller (5-11, 180, Lake Butler Union County, Fl) are also expected to declare. McCoy began the year as the No. 1 player on the list but lost the spot when he broke his right ankle early in the season and will spend next year at prep school.
Heading into Signing Day, Lemming has Urban Meyer and
Charlie Weis has Notre Dame in the second slot. The Irish have come away with 16 of the Top 200 players on Lemming's overall list, a tremendous haul. Next up is Pete Carroll and USC. The Trojans won't have strength in numbers this season, as they have signed the smallest class of all the top schools going into Wednesday. What they have, as always, is talent: the Trojans' Top 10 players are better than anyone else's.
Rounding out the Top Five are national champion
For all the drama and glory Wednesday, tune into the CSTV Signing Day Special from 4-7 EST on Wednesday and keep checking CSTV.com for all the recent commitments and news.
