MORE: Early signing period conference breakdown | Late additions boost Tigers, Vols in rankings

The early signing period has come and gone, and - as always - there were a few surprises.

Despite the recent signings and some standing commitments, there are still several high-profile players who have decided to wait until the late signing period to make their college choices.

In fact, the No. 1 player in the country - point guard Brandon Knight - is still on the board.

Rivals.com national basketball recruiting analyst Jerry Meyer takes a look at the top 10 uncommitted players in the 2010 Rivals150 and some of the schools that hope to land them in the spring period.

Brandon Knight, 6-3/185, PG, Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) Pine Crest
Knight Highlights
RANK: No. 1 overall
SCHOOLS IN PLAY: Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, Florida, Miami and Syracuse
BUZZ: Knight has already officially visited Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky and Florida, but Miami is also considered a legitimate contender because of its proximity to Knight's home. A late decision is expected.
Josh Selby, 6-2/183, PG, Baltimore Lake Clifton
Selby Highlights
RANK: No. 4
SCHOOLS IN PLAY: Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Miami and Syracuse
BUZZ: Selby's decision is likely to come after the basketball season. He has unofficially visited Indiana and Kansas and is expected to visit the other three schools on his list during the basketball season.
Cory Joseph, 6-3/180, PG, Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep
Joseph Highlights
RANK: No. 7
SCHOOLS IN PLAY: Connecticut, Minnesota, Texas, UNLV and Villanova

Terrence Jones, 6-8/220, PF, Portland (Ore.) Jefferson
Jones Highlights
RANK: No. 13
SCHOOLS IN PLAY: Kentucky, Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA and Washington
BUZZ: Jones officially visited all five schools on his list but could not settle on a decision before the end of the early signing period. He is considered a lean to stay on the West Coast, but Kentucky is also in serious contention.

Leslie Highlights
RANK: No. 14
SCHOOLS IN PLAY: Florida, Kentucky, N.C. State, Oregon, Maryland and Tennessee

Lamb Highlights
RANK: No. 21
