Another National Signing Day is in the books.
The 2024 edition didn’t have too much drama, aside from the initial surprise of Josaiah Knight signing with Mississippi State less than two months after signing with Illinois.
But it did feature a lot of really talented high school football players signing to play in college.
State of Florida Recruiting H.Q. hosts Jon Santucci and Chris Boyle discuss their favorite signings, which schools did the best job and which preferred walk-ons could make an impact.
What was your favorite signing on Wednesday?

Boyle: Chalil Cummings. He becomes Memphis’ No. 2 recruit in this cycle, per 247Sports’ composite rankings. I think he’s a guy that provides value wherever the Tigers’ coaching staff plays him. He demonstrated what he can do in coverage against Cocoa’s Jayvan Boggs in the Class 2S state championship game and caught a contested touchdown to open the scoring. However Memphis chooses to use him, I’m sure he’ll be an effective player.
Lakeland’s D’Marius Rucker signs with Coastal Carolina on Wednesday.
Santucci: I like the Cummings signing a lot, too. I also have some guys I think were absolute steals as far as value. But we’ll save those for later. So, I’m going to go with D’marius Rucker signing with Coastal Carolina. That’s a program that’s gotten a lot of talent from Florida the past few seasons. I really like his vision and his explosive playmaking ability. He could be a real difference-maker at the next level.
