Early National Signing Day has become a spectacle for uncommitted players. The Miami football program currently has eight players committed to their 2022 Class. Four-stars, defensive lineman Nyjalik Kelly and offensive lineman Malik Agbo are Miami prospects who will announce their college destination on Wednesday.

Agbo and Kelly named Miami among their finalists over the weekend. Auburn is a finalist with Miami for Agbo and Kelly. Agbo is also considering Oklahoma and Texas. The Longhorns are projected at 90.9 percent for Agbo from 247 Sports and 63 percent from Rivals.Com. Agbo will announce on Wednesday at 5:00 PM ET.

Kelly is making his announcement live at 10:00 AM ET on Wednesday. In addition to Auburn and Miami, Kelly announced Florida, Florida State and Georgia as finalists. Kelly has four 247 Sports Crystal Balls and a 100 percent projection from Rivals.Com to Miami. Kelly would be the highest-rated 2022 Miami football signee.

Agbo is the 273rd ranked player, 21st ranked offensive tackle and fifth highest-ranked player in Washington in the Class of 2022. Kelly, from Fort Lauderdale Dillard, is the 84th ranked player, 13th ranked DL and 12th ranked player in 2022. Kelly would be a huge addition to the Miami DL.

Another player to watch on Early National Signing Day is four-star cornerback Earl Little Jr. Little Jr. does not have a commitment ceremony scheduled according to his 247 Sports profile. Miami has gotten back into the recruitment for Little Jr. late after hiring Mario Cristobal last week. Little Jr. is a Miami legacy.

Little Jr.’s father Earl Sr. played for Miami from 1993 through 1996. Miami currently has commitments from four-star CBs Chris Graves and Khaumari Rogers. Agbo, Kelly and Little will be the prospects to watch for Miami on Early National Signing Day. Most of the Miami commits should go as expected.

Miami four-star wide receiver commit Isaiah Horton posted to his Twitter account on Monday he will be committing live from his high school. “I will be signing my letter of intent Wednesday December 15 at 10:45 AM in the Oakland High School Auditorium. Everyone is invited.” 

Four-star CB Khamauri Rogers is a strong Miami commit who will sign his National Letter of Intent at 11:00 AM ET In Madison, Mississippi at Holmes County High School where he played and attends. Rogers is currently the highest-rated commit for Miami in 2022 and teams with Chris Graves to give Miami a strong CB tandem.

Next. Miami projected signing 4-star DE Kelly, 3-star WR Ibieta likely LSU flip. dark

The one exception is expected to be three-star Mandeville, Louisiana WR Landon Ibieta. Ibieta who has been committed to Miami since June has three 247 Sports crystal balls projecting him to flip to LSU. Cristobal has reportedly not contacted Ibieta since being hired as the new Miami football head coach last week.
