National signing day: Top prospects and storylines entering college football's late signing period

College football's early signing period brought plenty of surprises and news, as 269 ESPN 300 recruits signed their national letters of intent.

That leaves the February signing period with much less on the table for teams to move up in the rankings or add early impact playmakers. There are currently 14 ESPN 300 recruits who are uncommitted, including three five-stars, and 17 who are committed but unsigned.

Even though there won't be as much quantity and likely won't be as many surprises, there are still some big names set to make decisions. Some prospects will make their announcements on College Football Live's national signing day special on Wednesday (noon ET, ESPN2 and the ESPN App).

To get you caught up on how we got to this point and what's left, here is a primer for Wednesday's national signing day.
