Gary gets emotional over decision to choose Michigan (0:37)

Rashan Gary, the No. 1 recruit on the ESPN 300, explains how it took him up until the last minute to decide on choosing Michigan to play football. (0:37)

A by-the-numbers look at the most important developments from the 2016 national signing day (all numbers as of 5:50 p.m. ET Wednesday):

1: School that has more than one five-star recruit. Ole Miss got two: offensive tackle Gregory Little and defensive tackle Benito Jones.

3: Coaches who have multiple No. 1 classes since ESPN’s recruiting rankings began in 2006. Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher got his second No. 1 class Wednesday, and he joined Nick Saban (four) and Urban Meyer (two).

5: Net ESPN 300 pickups on national signing day by Alabama, Florida State and Texas, the most in the nation. The Crimson Tide and the Longhorns each had one player flip his commitment and added four uncommitted players; the Seminoles landed five uncommitted recruits, had one player flip to them and lost a commitment to another school.

9: Top-three recruiting classes for Alabama under Saban, who is assembling his 10th class with the Crimson Tide.

19: ESPN 300 recruits who signed with LSU, tied for the most ESPN 300 recruits in one school’s class. (ESPN began its recruiting rankings with the class of 2006.)

22: Spots that Texas rose in the recruiting rankings in one day, starting Wednesday at No. 32 and finishing at No. 10.

34: Spots that Michigan rose in the recruiting ranks in one year, from 40th last year to sixth this year.
