National Signing Day player rankings 2020: Top 100 recruits for early signing period

Sporting News

The early signing period is here, when many of the top 2020 recruits in the nation will sign their letters of intent and set their college commitments in stone.

Many still will delay their decision until the turn of the calendar, but the early signing period still can go a long way in determining which schools will pull in the top classes.
