Live tracker: IU football recruits on class of 2022 early signing day

Follow along as Indiana’s potentially record-setting class of 2022 signs their national letters of intent on Wednesday during the first day of the early signing period.  The Hoosiers entered the day with the No. 20 high school class in the country and No. 5 in the Big Ten.  Their transfer class is also one of the nation’s best.

We’ll track high school, JUCO and transfer signings, including any new names that surface over the course of the day.

Also, if anyone backs off their verbal commitment, we’ll let you know about that too.

Check back all day for updates.
