We've just wrapped up National Signing Day, however it's never too early to start looking at the biggest names for the 2012 recruiting class. Our eyes are on the big board for next year.

Mario Edwards, Denton, TX

Edwards is a 6'4", 260 lbs defensive end that has his sights set on staying in his general area of the country. He already has formal offers from Auburn, Baylor, Florida State, Notre Dame, TCU, Texas, and Texas A&M, but Edwards hopes to bring his trade to the Oklahoma State Cowboys in two seasons. Both A&M and Texas Tech are hot on Edwards' tail as well, while Oklahoma and Auburn remain as certain possibilities. Many expect this man to be the highest rated recruit in the nation next season, especially at defensive end.

Anthony Alford, Petal, MS

2012 is expected to be the year of the quarterback coming out of high school, and Alford really might be leading the way. There are already a slew of schools that are looking for this highly coveted dual threat signal caller, including a ton of SEC schools as expected. However, don't be shocked if someone like a Michigan or a Notre Dame swoops in and snares a man like this to help lead the offense in the future. Southern Miss wants to keep Alford at home, but we know that he is going to be looking at the bright lights of the bigger colleges assuming that his senior year goes well in high school.

LaDarius Anthony, Kilgore, TX

This is one of the many recruits that have already verbally committed to their universities of choice, and it is already looked at as a huge coup for the Baylor Bears. Anthony was a man that came up to the varsity level and absolutely dominated right away in the Lone Star State, rushing for over 3,000 yards combined in his sophomore and junior seasons out of the running back spot. Anthony will need to prove that he can be a star for this offense, as this unit is really going to be lacking some skill when Robert Griffin leaves town.

Avery Young, Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Young is one of the biggest and brightest looking offensive lineman recruits for this coming season, and you know that he knows what he is doing coming out of the hotbed of talent in South Florida. He's already 6'6", 273 lbs as a junior in high school, and you know that he is going to be growing a heck of a lot more. He's already got a high level of interest from Florida State, Georgia, Oklahoma, and South Carolina, but there are definitely some other SEC schools on the list like Tennessee and Georgia. You won't hear a ton about Young this year, as offensive linemen rarely end up getting major buzz, but Young will definitely be a man that head coaches and top recruiters are after this coming season.
