Signing day 2012 is over, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Let’s take a (ridiculously) early look at what next year’s signing day may bring to Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.

There will be a Big Three in Palm Beach County and a big one on the T-Coast. Expect the three biggest names to be American Heritage running back Greg Bryant, Glades Central athlete William Likely and Glades Day running back Kelvin Taylor.

Bryant recently joked that he wants 30 hats on the table on his signing day. At the rate his recruiting process is going, that seems pretty likely. Taylor says he will pick between Florida and Alabama, but he could pick pretty much any school he wants. And Likely, who plays running back, receiver and cornerback and returns kicks and punts for Glades Central, will be a popular cornerback prospect for the big-name schools. Intimidating Centennial defensive tackle Jaynard Bostwick (6-4, 275) will be a prized recruit up on the T-Coast.

But there are a few other players who will attract serious attention over the next year. Let’s run down the list:

ELITE
Greg Bryant, RB, American Heritage
Jaynard Bostwick, DT, Centennial
Will Likely, CB, Glades Central
Kelvin Taylor, RB, Glades Day

NEXT TIER
Frank Brown, WR, Palm Beach Gardens
Malik Brown, TE/DE, Dwyer
Keith Bryant, DT, Atlantic (already committed to Miami)
Marcus Davis, ATH, American Heritage
Rod Johnson, OL, American Heritage
Marcus Levy, RB, Fort Pierce Central
James Looney, OL, Lake Worth
Kyle Shortridge, DL, Seminole Ridge
Ray Wilson, RB, Palm Beach Central

But all those players will be flanked by some other talented seniors-to-be. Palm Beach County and the T-Coast always have good talent, especially at the level just below the elite, big-time names. Here’s a long and inclusive list of other Class of 2013 players to watch, grouped by school.
