- Former prized recruit Elisha Shaw will likely never play a down of football again, but that didn’t stop Nick Saban and Alabama from reportedly honoring his scholarship on signing day.
- Auburn missed on local four-star recruit Rashaan Evans, but coach Gus Malzahn is happy with the Tigers’ top-10 class and looking forward to the future.
- Florida finished strong on signing day despite a disappointing season because recruits were sold on the Gators’ brand and saw an opportunity in Gainesville.

- It was yet another successful signing day for Les Miles and his staff. What was going on behind the scenes at LSU all day?
- Ole Miss wasn’t landing five-star recruits on signing day like a year ago, but that doesn’t mean it wasn't still a busy day for the Rebels.
