National Signing Day is six months away but before the biggest day in college football recruiting arrives here are predictions for where the uncommitted five-star recruits will commit.

11 of the biggest 2016 five-star prospects are still undecided on where they will play college football. Ordinarily this would not seem like such a big deal, but the 2016 class has enough talent to shift the balance of power in the game.

Everyone sees what happens on the field, but many do not understand the importance of not only recruiting but recruiting well. Just the distinction of having the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation is enough to make your opponent’s circle your game on their schedule. So far, the Ohio State Buckeyes are doing exactly that. While the feat oftentimes separates that team from the rest of the pack,  it is going to be difficult to ignore the efforts of Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, and USC just to name a few.

Alas, that is only half the battle. The aforementioned teams will have to put in a successful 2015 season or some of the recruits may shift to another school. This year in particular, teams will have to work extra hard to either keep the commitment of these players with some of the players on this list already decommitting once.

It will also be difficult to ignore the amount of talent in the class. Loaded will talent that covers all aspects of the game at every position teams are clamoring for several prized recruits. The speed of Nate Craig-Myers, the physicality of Lyndell Wilson, and the explosiveness of Rashan Gary are just some of the things these teams are fighting for.

Where will they go? We break down each prospect’s recruitment and where we think they’ll call home in what should be an exciting 2016 campaign.
