National Signing Day is famous for handful of guys who have an unexpected press conference or a dramatic hat switch angering one fan base, while exciting another.

Chip Patterson broke down the most famous in recent history and a few might end up joining that list on Wednesday.

Joshua Dobbs from Arizona State to Tennessee: After committing to the Sun Devils nearly eight months ago, four-star quarterback Joshua Dobbs surprised a lot of people when he signed with Tennessee. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Dobbs is the No. 8 pro-style quarterback in the 2013 class, according to 247Sports.com.

Daeshon Hall from Washington to Texas A&M: The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Hall, a native of Lancaster, Texas, signed with the Aggies on Wednesday, spurning the Huskies after being committed to UW (and before that, Texas) for the better part of six months. Hall is rated the sixth-best defensive end in the country by 247Sports, and he bolsters an A&M recruiting class that is slated to finish in the top 10 in the team race.

Torrodney Prevot from USC to Oregon: Prevot committed to USC back in July but started to consider Texas A&M and Oregon after the Trojans stumbled to a 7-6 record. Prevot is a four-star DE and ranked the No. 177th ranked player overall by 247Sports.com.

Dee Liner from Auburn to Alabama: Liner, the the No. 112 overall prospect and No. 10 defensive tackle, according to 247Sports, was committed to Auburn throughout most of 2012 but left the Auburn fold after the departure of Gene Chizik and his staff.

Taivon Jacobs from Ohio State to Maryland: WR Taivon Jacobs switched his commitment from Ohio State to Maryland at a mid-morning ceremony inside Suitland High School. He had originally committed to the Buckeyes on July 19, one day after whittling his list of double-digit suitors to Ohio State, Maryland and West Virginia, but made his pledge to the Terps official on Wednesday.
