The top recruit in college football, Robert Nkemdiche, has made the time of his Signing Day announcement official, setting a finish line for when top colleges will know his destination.
Grayson High School released a schedule for Signing Day, which features his timeline, and Atlanta Journal-Constitution recruiting writer Michael Carvell tweeted it:

So by the time the day gets under way for most casual fans on Signing Day, the top player in the country will already be off the board.
It's widely presumed that the school most likely to land Nkemdiche is likely Ole Miss, although there's still a pair of other schools in the loop for the former Clemson commit: He's considering LSU, although he just cancelled a trip there, and recently visited the Florida campus, when he claimed that all three schools were neck-and-neck for his services.
The 6'5 defensive end from Loganville, Georgia, is universally considered the top commit in the country.
