The Early Signing Period has really become like National Signing Day, so Dec. 19 is a big day for prospects, college programs and fans across the country. The dead period is in effect and most decisions have been made by those signing early, but there will be some that are committed to one school today that could sign with another school Wednesday.

We take a look at five who could flip.

Will Florida State hold on to Deloach? Auburn has made a strong push and Michigan never went away, and those two programs have given the Seminoles a run for it. Deloach was on his official visit to Florida State over the weekend, so that staff was hoping to seal the deal, but the Tigers and Wolverines are not going to give up until the pen hits the paper later this week.

Miami has never given up on Dunmore, so could it pay off? The Sunshine State wideout has been committed to Penn State since July, and he has really said all the right things, but the Hurricanes could be a threat. Dunmore has three teammates committed to The U, so could he want to stay home and play with his friends. There appears to be some confidence that Penn State will hang on, but this one is not over with.

Eboigbe is committed to Alabama, and he was in Tuscaloosa over the weekend for his official visit, so the Crimson Tide look to be in line to hang on here. At one time, Tennessee had some real buzz. Miami had him on campus for an official visit just over a week ago as well, so the Hurricanes have not gone away. Eboigbe is saying all the right things about Alabama leading up to Dec. 19, when he will announce his final decision, but he is still one to watch.

Howell has been arguably the most talked about quarterback the last few weeks. With Walt Bell leaving Florida State as its offensive coordinator to take the head coaching job at Massachusetts recently, that has opened the door for other schools to come in late. North Carolina may have some momentum here with the hiring of Mack Brown at head coach and Phil Longo as offensive coordinator. It is an in-state school with a big need at quarterback, and the chance to throw it around under Longo. Miami has tried to get in this one too, but the Tar Heels are the biggest threat to the Seminoles.

There has been some buzz around Lucas the last few weeks. He is committed to Florida State and he was in Tallahassee over the weekend for his official visit, but two other in-state schools have not gone away. Will Willie Taggart and the Seminoles hang on or will Lucas flip to Florida or Miami? He has visited the Gators and Hurricanes recently, and although the Seminoles still are viewed as being tough to beat, this will not be over until the paper is signed Wednesday.
