Wednesday is a big day for college football recruits as they can begin signing their letters of intent with the schools of their choice. Follow the news, developments and analysis here with live updates by Nolan Bianchi of The Detroit News. You can also keep track of the lists at the bottom of this page as Michigan and Michigan State commitments become official signees as their letters of intent arrive in Ann Arbor and East Lansing.

Four-star Ohio State commit opts not to sign just yet

Muskegon quarterback/athlete and Ohio State commit Cameron Martinez opted not to sign his letter of intent during the early signing period this week.

The four-star Martinez, No. 4 on The Detroit News Blue Chip list, committed to the Buckeyes in July of this year and has offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Iowa, Notre Dame, Penn State, and others.

Muskegon head coach Shane Fairfield told The Detroit News that Martinez wants to wait to see who Ohio State coach Ryan Day names as his new defensive coordinator. Martinez is expected to play defensive back or receiver for the Buckeyes.

Jeff Hafley had been OSU's co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach but he left to become Boston College head coach. 

At 5-foot-11, 183 pounds, 247Sports recruiting expert Allen Trieu likens Martinez's game to that of longtime Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Willie Snead.

Walled Lake Western receiver flips commitment, signs with Purdue

Walled Lake Western wide receiver Abdur-Rahmaan Yaseen on Wednesday morning flipped his commitment from Northwestern to Purdue, signing with the Boilermakers during the early signing period.

Trieu compared the 6-foot-1, 180-pound three-star to San Francisco 49ers wideout Dante Pettis, an "excellent route-runner" that Trieu called "well-polished." Yaseen committed to Northwestern on Dec. 28 last year.

Country's top prep player chooses Nebraska over Michigan State, others

Four-star wideout Alante Brown signed with Nebraska live on Big Ten Network Wednesday. The Chicago native said before appearing on the live broadcast that his three finalists were Nebraska, Indiana and Maryland.

Brown committed to Michigan State in June 2018 but later reopened his recruiting in January this year. He brought with him a Michigan State hat to the studio Wednesday, leading some in Spartan nation to become hopeful that a reunion was imminent.
