Welcome to the first day of college football’s early signing period. Recruits can begin sending in their National Letters of Intent at 7 a.m. local time and have until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 20 to get those letters to the schools of their choice.
This year, of course, has been strange on multiple recruiting fronts. College football has been in a dead period essentially since the pandemic started to force cancellations last spring, which meant coaches weren’t able to go on the road to do in-person evaluations and recruits weren’t allowed to take official visits.
“There’s going to be kids around the country, at every program, that are going to sign a scholarship letter that have never been in a room with the coach,” Nebraska defensive coordinator Erik Chinander said. “It is what it is. I had to be that way this year, but that’s kind of scary. I don’t think that any of us would probably marry somebody we only met over Zoom.”
Consider this your home base for our early signing period coverage. When players have officially signed, we’ll move them from the “Expected to Sign” category to the “Signed” category. We’ll also keep updating the Reading List throughout the day with links to the latest.
Scott Frost will meet with the media to discuss the 2021 class at 3 p.m.
