The high school football season is over; so too is the college football season. Still this month is perhaps the most anticipated countdown for both college and high school football fans.

National Signing Day is set for Wednesday, February 2nd. Many of your favorite high school football seniors will sign letters of intent to play for many of your favorite collegiate teams.

WCTV will once again have complete coverage of your North Florida and South Georgia football standouts as they ink their names on a college scholarship.

**Please feel free to contact WCTV Eyewitness Sports (sports@wctv.tv) if you have information on Signing Day announcements and ceremonies scheduled at the respective schools within the Big Bend, South Georgia and surrounding counties.

Thomas County Central's Ray Drew is definitely part of the recruiting trail this season... Rivals.com has the 6-foot-5 defensive lineman ranked as the 9th best prospect in the Class of 2011. They have also bumped Drew up from a 4-star recruit to a 5-star recruit.

Other notable recruits in the national spotlight (Rivals.com Top-100) are:

(No. 8) Safety Karlos Williams out of Davenport, FL. (5-star recruit committed to FSU)

(No. 11) RB/ DE James Wilder, Jr. out of Tampa, FL (5-star recruit committed to FSU)

(No. 29) DT Timmy Jernigan out of Columbia High in Lake City, FL (4-star recruit with high interest from FSU, Alabama and LSU)

(No. 30) DB Malcolm Mitchell out of Valdosta High. He's a 4-star athlete with speed.

(No. 56) TE Jay Rome out of Valdosta High. He's a 4-star athlete with tons of upside.

The two Valdosta Wildcat stars, Mitchell and Rome, plan on making their college football decision prior to signing day in a live radio broadcast held at Hibachi Grill & Buffet in Valdosta, Ga. Both will make the announcement on January 20th.
