National Signing Day is just two weeks away and not all players among area teams have committed, making for a crazy race to the finish line.

Some of the top players have committed and are planning visits to their respected schools, while a few have reversed the switch and chose to go elsewhere.

Freshmen and sophomores are getting notable offers as well, but for those second-tier seniors, the time is now for these next 14 days to do their research, listen to coaches and make a decision before Feb. 1 rolls around.
