College football recruiting: National Signing Day 2023 schedule, key announcement times, predictions, picks


The traditional National Signing Day for the 2023 recruiting cycle takes center stage this week on the college football calendar as the first Wednesday in February has arrived. Yes, the majority of Top247-ranked recruits have already made their college decisions when the early signing period opens in December, but there are still a few notable prospects to watch during the National Signing Day festivities.

There are five Top247 prospects who have yet to announce their college destinations. Well, six if you count four-star QB Jaden Rashada, who signed with Florida early in the signing period but eventually got a release from his national letter of intent. Rashada, however, doesn’t seem to be in a rush to announce his next destination. Still, all eyes will be on the other five Top247 signings who are ready to take the next step in their footballing careers.

So when will these rookies announce National Signing Day live? Below is an overview of the main engagements due to take place on Wednesday along with the expected landing spots as predicted by 247Sports Crystal Ball.

Watch our National Signing Day broadcast LIVE from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET on the 247Sports YouTube page for pledges, analysis and reaction. Then tune into CBS Sports HQ for a recap of the signing day at 5 p.m.


All Eastern and approximate times; specific times will be updated as they become available

  • 1 p.m. — Five Star ATH Nyckoles Harbor: The most notable uncommitted prospect, Harbor visited Oregon last weekend as the Ducks’ vaunted track program kept them in contention for the 2024 Summer Olympics hopeful. Maryland, South Carolina and Michigan are also still involved. Crystal Ball: South Carolina
  • 1:30 p.m. — Four-Star CB Rodrick Pleasant: Pleasant, the defending California State champion in the 100m and 200m, named the final five from Boston College, California, Oregon, UCLA and USC. It seems, however, that the battle for the star of the track comes down to Oregon vs. USC. Crystal ball: N/A
  • TBD – OL four-star Chimdy Onoh: One of the top uncommitted offensive lineman prospects visited Ole Miss last weekend on the heels of a trip to Michigan State the previous weekend, while Penn State received the first visit this month. He also visited Rutgers in December, as his recruitment remains fairly open over time. Crystal Ball: State of Pennsylvania
  • TBD – Four Star TE Walker Lyons: Lyon will not enroll in a school until the fall of 2024, as he is due to begin serving his LDS mission next month in Norway. Stanford’s unique commitment opened things up when David Shaw stepped down, and the Cardinal is still trying to bring him back into the fold. Utah, however, is well placed while USC and Georgia remain involved. Crystal ball: Stanford
  • TBD – Five Star TE Duce Robinson: Georgia looks like the team to beat here, but 247Sports’ Blair Angulo reported Monday that Robinson may wait until last Wednesday to make his decision, as the dual-sport star also has MLB aspirations. USC and Texas remain a factor here, but baseball could be the biggest threat to the Bulldogs in getting the best tight end available in the country. Crystal ball: Georgia
