The 2023 Early National Signing Day has been phenomenal with some players fulfilling their dreams and some taking unexpected turns on their commitments. Ohio State Buckeyes, Georgia Bulldogs, and Nebraska Cornhuskers have done some of the best business.

Jeremiah Smith, the top-ranked overall player, stayed true to his verbal agreement with the Buckeyes, despite major efforts from the Miami Hurricanes and Florida State Seminoles.
