The first 2021 recruit to sign with every B1G program during the Early Signing Period
The 2021 Early Signing Period is underway.
Signatures started coming in early Wednesday morning, as prospects from across the country were able to make their commitments official this week. It’s always an exciting time for recruits to start looking ahead to the future and for programs to welcome new faces to the team.
Recruiting in 2021 was a little different than most years — actually a lot different — due to the ongoing pandemic. But it’s still a really fun time of year.
Here’s a look at the first official commits for all 14 B1G programs for the 2021 recruiting cycle.
