College football's early signing period is fast approaching, and there are 28 uncommitted ESPN 300 recruits that have yet to announce their college choice.

Not every prospect will announce a decision when the signing period begins on Wednesday, but there are some big names ready to make their commitment. A handful of five-stars will be announcing, including teammates Jaquavious Russaw and James Smith, as well as some important cornerbacks in Damari Brown and Jyaire Hill.

And while 272 of the top 300 prospects are committed, that doesn't mean we won't see some of them flip to another school. Signing day always brings drama with flips and commitment switches, and this year won't be any different.

We predict where five recruits ranked in the ESPN 300 will make their college choices and also identify three highly ranked prospects who could flip their commitments to a new school.
