Women's Recruiting Class Rankings | Men's Recruiting Class Rankings

8 a.m. -- Coverage kicks off with Addison Hess, the No. 24 ranked recruit in the country, signing for Penn State. The TSC FC Virginia product is a forward with excellent instincts to create for herself and teammates. She heads a Penn State recruiting class that is ranked fifth nationally, ideal for a team that is prepping for the NCAA tournament having lost just twice in the regular season.

8:45 a.m. -- Next up is Vitor Geromel of Sporting Wichita signing for Clemson. The 6 foot 3 striker is fresh off winning a second straight state championship for Maize South High School in a senior season that saw him break Kansas single season (56) and career (130) goal scoring records. Geromel combines excellent IQ with technique and finishing, traits that landed him National High School Player of the Year honors. Clemson, the 2021 NCAA Champion, is having yet another excellent season, currently ranked 11th and considered one of the favorites to win it all.

9:45 a.m. -- Ainsley Moy, the No. 66 ranked recruit, signs for Big 12 rising power TCU. The PDA product is a High School All-American and was an ECNL All-Conference selection this past summer.

10 a.m. -- A top 10 player in the 2024 class, Emeri Adames, has signed for North Carolina. The U.S. U19 National Team forward and 2023 ECNL All-American, leads a loaded UNC recruiting class ranked 2nd nationally. Adames is an excellent finisher with outstanding ability to link up play and time her runs in behind. The Tar Heels have suffered just one loss all season as NCAA tournament play begins.

10:20 a.m. -- Berit Parten, a forward who led North Oaks Soccer Club to a 2023 US Youth Soccer National Championship, has signed for Iowa.

Shimkin will join older sister, Jilly, who is having an impressive year for the Longhorns. Texas, fresh of a Big 12 Conference Tournament championship, is having one of the best season's in program history and is reloading well for the future with a seventh ranked recuiting class as Amalia Villarreal, Cambry Patrick, and Lola Foley, standing as other top 100 recruits expected to sign.

12:15 p.m -- Tanner Ijams, the second highest ranked goalkeeper, and Andrea Leyva, the No. 39 recruit in the country, have both singed for Washington, spearheading an impressive recruiting class.

4 p.m. -- There is a HUGE development as Tabitha Sine, the No. 21 ranked player in the 2025 class, reclassifies to 2024 and will join BYU a year earlier than expected.
