National Signing Day gets more attention in February, but players can sign their Letter of Intent on Wednesday, and a lot of future BYU Football players will do just that.

BYU Football’s coaches have been doing double duty in the last month. Not only have they been prepping the team for the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Friday, but they’ve also been hitting the recruiting trail hard.

And some of that hard work will pay off on Wednesday. Players can sign their Letter of Intent two months before February’s National Signing Day, and we can expect at least a handful of Cougar commits to do just that.

It’s important to note that not all of BYU’s current 2019 commits will sign on Wednesday. There are a lot of different reasons why a player can hold off on signing until February, so it doesn’t necessarily mean that a commit that doesn’t sign early is having second thoughts

But expect to see a good chunk of those who’ve already committed sign early, especially those who committed a while ago and remained steady since.

There’s also a chance that a handful of uncommitted players that BYU has offered will make their decision on Wednesday, although undecided players tend to hold out until National Signing Day.

But we’ll go through both the players that committed and the players who have been offered by BYU according to 247Sports. There may be a surprise or two that’s not currently a known offer, but we’re giving you all of the names we know to look for as the signings roll in throughout the day on Wednesday.

One final note. Transfers don’t count toward recruiting, so we won’t focus on players transferring in, such as Nevada safety Nephi Sewell, who committed to BYU on Monday.

So let’s start with the commits.
