With the opportunity to sign early (and possibly enroll early), many of the top football prospects around the country get the process out of the way on the early signing day in December, and it’s no different in Michigan. Thirty-three senior members of our preseason top 50 players list chose to sign on Wednesday, with four more seniors yet holding out to do it at a later date.

Twenty of those prospects wound up at Big Ten schools, led by four each going to Michigan and Purdue (!!!). Of the other 13 going to other conferences, three wound up at Kentucky.
