Now that the early signing period is off and running, here is a look at a few things that are standing out to us involving the 2012 class.

What uncommitted player outside the ESPNU 100 are you paying attention to?

Paul Biancardi: Phillip Nolan (Milwaukee/St. Benedicts) combines the type of size (6-foot-10, 205 pounds) and athleticism that high-major programs covet. He is a long, skilled post player who can effectively play three positions and will be an immediate asset at whichever school he chooses. He has a long list of suitors from almost every major conference in the country, and he is a talent that could easily work his way into the ESPNU 100 before year's end. As he fills out, he will be a handful to contain. He is considering Clemson, Oregon, Marquette, Maryland and Baylor.
