National Signing Day is upon on us once again and this year the fervor is built up to an all-time high, as a number of players are set to announce their college intentions, some for the first time. Here is a glimpse at where and when.

WR Bralon Addison

8:00am: Addison will get the Midlands off the ground in a hurry with an interesting signing. The long time Texas A&M commit took a last second visit to Oregon and will now be deciding between the Ducks and the Aggies. This one could set the tone for the rest of the day.

CB Colin Blake

9:00am: Originally selected Texas A&M, but made the de-commitment after the coaching change went down. He will now sign his papers during a ceremony at Brandeis High. Florida State, TCU and Oklahoma have been the most talked about schools with him, but it should come down to the Frogs and the Noles. He's not on the official commit tracker, but we are taking FSU in this one.

WR Dorial Green-Beckham

9:05am: The top prospect in the country will be selecting from Arkansas, Missouri and Texas. He will be making his selection on national television. He will be one of the first major commits to announce and he will select during a ceremony at his high school, Hillcrest High.

WR Thomas Johnson

12:20pm: By this time of the day you never know if these players letters will definitely already be faxed in or not, but things are slated to get rolling at the major DISD ceremony at or around 1:00pm, so Johnson is scheduled to make his selection thereabouts (could be earlier, could be later) and he should be the man of the hour. Cal, Oregon, Texas A&M and TCU are the schools in the running and it seems it could honestly go in any one of those directions.

WR Chance Allen

1:00pm: Allen made the original decision to sign with Oklahoma State two weeks ago after a successful official visit, but still took a trip up to Oregon to see what that program was all about. Now a signing day decision enters in to the picture. Will it be the Cowboys or the Ducks? Scout.com's Ahmard Vital will be on the scene at his high school.

RB Trey Williams

8:00pm: Williams has re-affirmed his commitment to Texas A&M time and time again, but if he waits until the evening to actually ink his name, then the boards will be blowing up with speculation, because his has already been one of the more heavily debated recruitments in the Midlands. Here is the heads up a day before. The signing ceremony is late at night at DeKaney High, so the letter could come through early or late. Typically, the letters come in early so the prospects are announced officially as part of the class duirng the coaches press conference.
