2020 college football national signing day tracker: Live updates, news, analysis and more

College football’s national signing day is here.

Despite the NCAA enacting a recruiting dead period amid the COVID-19 pandemic since March, meaning recruits haven’t been able to take official visits, the early signing period has remained firm.

The early signing period begins Wednesday and lasts until Friday. High school recruits are able to sign their national letters of intent to lock them into the colleges of their choice.

This is the fourth year in which college football has held an early signing period. Previously, the only national signing day was on the first Wednesday in February.

TV coverage of national signing day begins Wednesday at noon ET on ESPN2. Several ESPN 300 prospects, including QB Jaxson Dart, RB Donovan Edwards and ATH Xavian Sorey, will announce on the air.

We will keep you updated with news, analysis, highlights, updated class rankings and more throughout the next few days.
