National Signing Day is less than 24 hours away--but what exactly does that mean? NSD is when prospects fax in their paperwork (National Letters of Intent) and end their recruitment process. It's the single biggest recruiting news day of the year as future prospects officially become members of football programs across the country.
The festivities start bright and early on Wednesday (usually around 7:30am CT) and will typically run until the program officially announces their class; A lot of action takes place in the morning, but there's always some drama in the afternoon for a few lucky schools.
Wednesday will be a huge day for Fighting Illini Football as several high-priority targets are still on the board. TCR will be providing coverage throughout the day so make sure to check back for regular updates. For now, here's everything you need to know about the program's 2015 recruiting efforts thus far:
