The college football season is winding down, but the excitement for next season is already here.
December Early Signing Day provides recruits — and schools — the option to solidify their commitments. Also, it gives the players a chance to start their college careers early, like graduating early and enrolling at their respective colleges in January.
At publication time (1:30 p.m. PT) Oregon had 20 signees, while Oregon State got 11 recruits. Obviously, both programs can add more players, which we’ll do our best to add as time goes on.
The Ducks early players (all signed by 9:20 a.m.) locked in the “top recruiting class in program history,” according to 247Sports.
