National Signing Day is upon us once again, as the Longhorns try to keep's No. 1 ranked recruiting class. Here are three storylines to follow today.

1) Keeping it together

As is stands, the Longhorns have the No. 1 class in America. And the biggest key toward keeping that is to have all of the commitments sign their National Letters of Intent. Sounds simple, right? Well, National Signing Day is known for defying logic, and now's when we'll find out if those players who have supposedly been wavering are wavering enough to either put off signing or to sign with another team. In some cases, players will receive NLOIs from multiple schools, with the second school hoping to pull a fast one and steal a kid that most people thought was solid.

2) Making a steal

As of Tuesday night, it appeared that Dorial Green-Beckham was likely headed to Missouri. That means that the Longhorns don't really have any recruiting battles to watch play out, but don't be surprised if Texas comes out of nowhere for somebody they've been recruiting, like say a Torshiro Davis. Davis is an LSU commitment, but said as recently as yesterday that there's still a chance that he could ink with the Longhorns on Signing Day. Whether or not it's Davis, keep your eye on whether Texas is able to swing a surprise.

3) Fight for No. 1

Of course, the Longhorns aren't the only ones looking to add to their stockpile of talent. And the Alabama-Texas battle for the top class is close enough that a player or two could swing the battle the other way. Put it this way: each of the last times each school finished No. 1 in recruiting, that class led to an eventual national title. In the Longhorns' case, that meant the 2002 class (also known as the class that gave the Longhorns Vince Young), which is the only time Texas has finished atop the National Rankings.
