Georgia and Ohio State head into the national signing day with a chance to lock up the title of No. 1 class, while Alabama is closing fast along with traditional powers with new coaches.

Most FBS teams filled the majority of their 2018 classes during the new early signing period in December. The traditional February date has most teams just topping of their classes. Georgia had the top-ranked class, according to 247 Sports' rankings, heading into Wednesday. Ohio State was second.

Five-star cornerback Patrick Surtain Jr. has committed to Alabama. The son of the former NFL player by the same name was considered the top unsigned prospect left to commit. The Tide beat out LSU and Miami and might have ensured a top-three overall class by landing Surtain.

It was quite a signing ceremony at American Heritage High School in Florida. Surtain's teammate and fellow star cornerback, Tyson Campbell, announced he would sign with Georgia, picking the Bulldogs over Miami and Alabama.
