Last month’s UIL football championship week coincided with a first-ever early signing period for recruits already set on where they would continue their playing careers.

Many others chose to wait.

Instead, official visits were scheduled, recruits followed Twitter to see which college coaches changed jobs, and still other players simply desired more time to make that tough choice.

The traditional National Signing Day, which this year is Feb. 7, is fast-approaching for these players.

The Star-Telegram concludes its week long breakdown of the top 10 DFW recruits at each position.

Check out the top quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, offensive linemen, defensive linemen, linebackers and defensive backs.
