Bryan Bresee was supposed to wait until later this summer or the first day of the early signing period to let the world know where he was going to play college football.
As it turns out, he just cannot wait.
Bresee, who still rates as the nation’s No. 1 overall prospect for 2020 on the 247Sports Composite ratings, tweeted out on Friday he has set his finish line.
Commitment day set April 23rd!

The 6-foot-5, 290-pound DT prospect out of Maryland just wrapped up another trip to Clemson last weekend for their annual spring game. There’s been a good fit there with Clemson.
He told DawgNation on Friday that he has no more plans to visit any other schools prior to his decision. That means he will not be at G-Day on April 20.
Bresee has been a priority target for everyone, including Georgia over the last two years. Bresee made a series of trips to UGA over the last year and came away impressed with the Bulldogs each time.
He was at Georgia last year for G-Day. The 5-star DT has also established strong friendships with current UGA freshman Nolan Smith and 5-star signee Travon Walker.
The Bulldogs were in his released top 6 along with Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State.

Bresee told UGA earlier this year he’s likely working on a much smaller list than that top 6.
The popular 247Sports “Crystal Ball” feature has banked a string of reporter and recruiting analysts predictions about where the industry thinks he might wind up.
Clemson now owns 96 percent of those predictions. The only outlier there would be Ohio State. The Maryland native was also recently reclassified by the 247Sports Composite to the defensive tackle position.
He had been rated as a strong-side DE prospect for the bulk of his time over the last two years. He’s been almost the wire-to-wire prospect on the Composite for the 2020 class save for a few weeks earlier this year.
Bresee also plans to early enroll at the school of his choice in January of 2020.
