Regional coverage starts up before that, however, with four-star Dalvin Tomlinson choosing between a handful of Southeastern programs in Atlanta shortly after 8 a.m. ET.
The most anticipated 2012 NSD commitment, that of No. 1 recruit Dorial Green-Beckham to Missouri, Arkansas or elsewhere, happens at 10:15 a.m. ET. Personally, I'm more looking forward to Landon Collins again choosing between Alabama and LSU at 1 p.m. ET, if only for one more round of Collins family excitement.
