The big overnight news, if you haven't heard, is the signing of Marcus Lattimore by the Sakerlina Gamecocks. A major victory for Spurrier and Co as he nets the nations most coveted running back.

9:13 am JC Copeland spurns Tennessee and heads to LSU with John Chavis. Our buddy Wes Rucker is a must follow for recruiting and all things Volunteer.

11:08 am Not to steal ESPNU's thunder but isn't James Stone to Tennessee already done?
11:14 am Ronald Powell is headed to Florida. They're continuing their Urban Meyer "hiatus" breakneck pace.
11:23 am Jimbo Fisher on ESPNU talking about Clint Trickett and his recruiting class "we had to make it private because of the character issues surrounding the family." Funny.
11:33 am Telvin Smith, after pulling the pump fake on the radio, commits to FSU to add to the Noles haul this season.
11:34 am After the Ego Ferguson announcement we're taking a lunch break. Check us out on twitter during lunch for some updates.

11:43 am Mississippi State and Rutgers are also finished with their recruiting classes for 2010.
11:45 am Prince Shembo, defensive end from Charlotte, confirms what we already knew, he's going to Notre Dame. Kid is a stud, a great get for Brian Kelly
11:50 am The Fighting Irish also land Kona Schwenke. Another good move by Kelly, he'll keep this ND class in the top 20.
11:53 am Giovanni di Poalo sings with the Trojans. Lane Kiffin, love him or hate the guy, he's a damn good recruiter.
11:54 am Ego Ferguson commitment comes down the pipes. LSU? Wasn't expecting the big man to be a Bayou Bengal. Great pick up for Les Miles.
11:57 am After that news we're grabbing a bite to eat.
12:14 pm Bjern Werner commits to Florida State. The Noles are killing it now and about to tap out for the day well embedded in the top ten.
12:17 pm Maryland is all in now too. Mississippi State, Rutgers, Georgia Tech, Mizzou among the notable schools that have already tapped out.
12:34 pm The ACC has another tapped out school, Duke wraps up its class with 20 total LOI's signed. That makes them the 4th.
12:37 pm Calvin Barnett, the big DT switches from Oklahoma State and heads to Arkansas. The Hogs 53rd ranked class just caught some elevation.
12:40 pm as Lauren Goddard points out, not a lot of news coming down from Big 10 country.
12:42 pm Utah's recruiting hopes take a hit was Ricky Heilumi signs up to become a member of the Quack Attack.
12:46 pm Apparently New Mexico hired Calvin Smith's father. Will the NCAA sniff this rule as they did in basketball?
12:48 pm Calvin Smith goes to New Mexico! Wow, what a steal for the Lobos.
12:50 pm Corey Lemonier decides to head to Auburn. He adds to Chizik's most awesome class. The guy is out recruiting Alabama, he's putting the Aubs right there in the mix with Florida and Texas on the national landscape.
12:53 pm Demar Dorsey heads to Florida State to soften the blow of losing out on two highly touted in state products.
12:56 pm Things are slowing down now as we gear up for Seantrel Henderson at 3pm and the west coast push.
1:03 pm Friend of the show, Bruce Feldman on ESPNU.
1:28 pm Demar Dorsey, getting conflicting reports now. Some say Michigan and some are saying Florida State. No official LOI from either school so we'll keep you posted.
1:43 pm Demar Dorsey is going to Michigan. After a report, a retraction and then finally the news, this Dorsey case is ridiculous and he can help Michigan a ton in the secondary.
1:47 pm OL John Cullen turns down Oklahoma, USC among others to become a Ute. The MWC has got some serious steals in their classes.
1:48 pm Ahmad Dixon, safety, is a Baylor Bear. He was a Texas commit. Will Muschamp has got to be scratching his head as they lose a recruit to a team they routinely demolish.
1:54 pm Trovon Reed a wide receiver from Thibodeaux, LA is headed to Auburn. Chizik has got a fever.
1:55 pm Still looking for the Calvin Smith dad hired rumor. Have only seen it on twitter so I'm trying to find the position and particulars.
1:58 pm Tennessee hires Boise State defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox as their defensive coordinator. Not a bad hire although he did give up a ton of points and yardage to Dooley's own LaTech squad.
2:00 pm Anger level is slowly reaching defcon five, Seantrel Henderson's announcement has moved from 3pm to 4pm and now to 5:30pm per CBS. This is ridiculous.
2:01 pm Gabe King follows pal Keenan Allen to Cal. The Bears take two of the Carolinas best.
2:04 pm Why are there no real stories coming out of the Big 10? Well take a look at their rankings from Scout (via Illinois Loyalty) PSU 7, UM 11, OSU 19, MSU 32, Wisc 33, Iowa 45, Pur 50, NU 56, Ind 57, Minn 66, Ill 69. Yuck.
2:10pm South Florida is finished recruiting. They inked a pretty respectable class considering Skip Holtz had all of ten days to lock them into the school.
2:12pm Utah has four four-star recruits. That's more than most BCS schools can claim. Great haul for the MWC.
2:14 pm Charlie Strong in his first year at the helm in Louisville inks 25 kids to put the cap on his first class.
2:19 pm Kadron Boone, WR, is headed to LSU didn't report that earlier.
2:20 pm Another non-BCS coup, the Broncos nab Jeremy Ioane from the likes of ND and Washington amongst others.
2:22 pm Auburn solidifies their class with JUCO recruit Bonomolo. Their tapped out for today, the Tigers now wait to see if anyone jumps them. Likely a top five finish for Chizik.
2:24 pm Christrian Greene making his big announcement on ESPNU at 3:30pm. FSU is the likely destination.
2:31 pm Pittsburgh's class i finalized. One of the best in the Big East but outside of the national top 15.
2:33 pm Owamagbe Odighizuwa, 17th ranked player in ESPNU 150, he chooses UCLA. Apparently he loves everyone to death. Nothing more or nothing less. He does have a solid polo game though, orange with the blue polo-man.
2:37 pm In related news Owa chose UCLA because he thinks "their academics is good."
2:46 pm Things are still slow Seantrel Henderson is opting for the show stopping commitment at 5:30 EST. Looks like most schools in the SEC, ACC, Big East are wrapping up their signings. The biggest loser today? Georgia. The Dawgs fell hard after losing Da'Rick Rogers.
2:51 pm Notre Dame wraps up their recruiting efforts. 23 signees for Brian Kelly in his first outing with the Irish. Michael James is the crown jewel of his class.
2:57 pm Early reports coming in not so good for the Big 10. Michigan, Penn State and Ohio State are absolutely killing the rest of the league in recruiting. The next few years we might see a lot of separation.
3:18 pm Chaz Green signs with the Gators to keep the gravy train rolling. Hayes Pullard, LB, signs on with the Trojans. Meanwhile Sakerlina wraps it up with 23 signees.
3:20 pm Florida is done ripping through the college football world. Green is their last signee. On to the 2011 pillage, the 2010 spring and Tebow draft posturing for the Gators.
3:22 pm Christian Thomas picks the Trojans over the Ducks. Lane Kiffin still balling out of control.
3:28 pm Wisconsin class is all in. No real surprises or monster gets.
3:30 pm Boston College makes it 21 as Spaziani finishes off his second class, first full season of recruiting.
3:36 pm Josh Shirley surprises us just a bit and decides to join Neuheisel at UCLA.
3:37 pm Christian Green, the 53rd ranked player in the ESPNU top 150 is headed to Florida State. The Noles just keep getting kids and this is proof that the Jimbo Fisher move was the right one at the time. They've got a ton of buzz and plenty of excitement surrounding the program.
3:40 pm Another bad break for the Dawgs. They just can't win for losing. On another note Syracuse is wrapping up with signing day and has a presser at 4pm.
3:49 pm Anthony Jefferson picks the UCLA over the Ducks and Wildcats. After looking average at best the Bruins are closing with a flourish.
3:53 pm As we come to close, waiting almost solely for Seantrel Henderson's big announcement around 5:30pm we can take a look at the biggest winners for today's haul. In my opinion there are two guys that stand out above the rest of the nation; Jimbo Fisher and Gene Chizik. Sure Meyer and Brown are #1 and #2 in the rankings but that is somewhat expected; Fisher and Chizik came essentially from nowhere to put together top shelf classes. Most importantly in the case of Chizik, this gives me a chance to say "I told you so" as I was an army of one in support of Chizik.
4:03 pm Folks teams are crossing their T's and dotting their I's with their classes now as Deitrich Reiley and Seantrel Henderson are the two biggest, national fish, remaining in the pond. When I get word I'll get you posted up.
4:08 pm Things are getting interesting now as folks assess their own classes. Teams are all holding their post-signing day press conference.
4:22 pm The SEC is, yet again, the winner in the recruiting national tournament. However, the Pac 10 supplants the ACC and the Big XII as the next big thing.
4:34 pm Dietrich Riley chooses UCLA over the USC and Notre Dame. Stays at home in Pasadena instead of heading across town. UCLA is really boosting their class and adding to the defensive side of the ball. Its a great haul, but the Bruins need some offense, they're really lacking on that side of the ball.
5:16 pm We're still waiting on the Seantrel Henderson announcement. I am yet again about to head into the TV room to get this ready for the word that he's going to USC (that's my own guess.)
5:26 pm Seantrel Henderson's choice is Southern Cal. Lane Kiffin does it again.
