   Note: There are normally several instances each year in which players in effect come or go from the signings list. Some fail to make a qualifying SAT score and never make it to campus or end up not playing for other reasons. In addition, players sometimes are extended a scholarship offer well after the start of the signing period.

   For the sake of consistency in comparing from year to year, the above list includes only players who (a) picked their college during the first week of the signing period in February or (b) cleary were Division I-A recruits who briefly delayed their decision.
