Someone that nobody was expecting. 

Avery Young on NSD in 2012. By the time it got to his announcement most thought it was UGA or UF.

Also that year Patrick Miller was a shock. He was all set to be an EE at LSU but when January classes started he was at AU instead.

Was it Monty Adams?

No. AU was trending big from the moment he headed to AU for his last OV.

Jarrett Stidham. He chose AU despite Golf's fascination with his GF.

Although he ultimately went to bamr, Cyrus Kouandjio's commitment on NSD was as big a surprise as could be imagined.

For most. I was told a month in advance it was happening.

I was surprised when we actually landed the #1 player in the country (Cowart), live on tv, and when he (finally) signed the paperwork.

Corey Lemonier?

That's a question for @augolf1716 @bigbird and @WarDamnEagleWDE. I did not follow as closely then and it surprised me. My general impression was we felt good for a while but became a toss up on NSD.

We were trending the whole last month before NSD, although his HC tried to make it interesting.

He went back and forth for a while and in the end it was definitely a surprise.

I thought Elijah Daniel was a surprise. Seems like we lost a high recruit on signing day and picked him up on signing day.

He was trending the last weekend. We let Bowers go to take ED.

Don't think they rated recruits with stars in the 60's. Sorry man.

Deangelo benton was a huge surprise on nsd for me! I admit I did not follow as closely as I do now but that was a fun moment for AU at the time.

He was a NSD surprise. We were trying hard to get Reuben Randle.

Key word surprise not star's numnuts.......I was all set for The OSU at the last minute my big brother threatened to kick my ass if I did not go to AU.  I had already told the AU golf coach were I was going. He were happy when I flipped

The rest of the story is history you do understand we're talking golf recruiting. The OP did not specfy which sport
