The culmination of the recruiting year is finally upon is — National Signing Day! This will be our recruiting hub for the day, but we’ll be pushing out other articles throughout the day as well, so be sure to check them out. Also, if you aren’t following us on Twitter, please do: @BSDTweet.


Here’s what you need to know:

Four-Star DB Nick Cross

It appears to be Florida State or Penn State for the Maryland four-star. There’s reason for optimism and pessimism on both sides, making this truly a 50/50 decision for Cross. DeMatha Catholic announced that the signing ceremony will be at 2:15 p.m., but not sure if Cross will make his decision public before then.

Three-Star WR TJ Jones

It’ll be Indiana or Penn State for the three-star wideout, and as things currently stand, it would be quite surprising if the Nittany Lions aren’t the choice.

Four-Star OG Doug Nester (UPDATE: 9:00 a.m.)

Doug Nester sign with Virginia Tech this morning.

Tough one for Penn State, who will now only bring in three offensive linemen in the 2019 class, with just two of them being high school players. Would expect a five- or even six-man offensive line class in 2020.

Four-Star DT Jaquaze Sorrells

Penn State did a nice job making this one a battle, but all signs point to South Carolina landing Sorrells’ signature.

Three-Star OT Dawand Jones

Penn State got the last official visit, but Ohio State is still expected to be the call here. Jones will announce at 6:30 p.m.

Penn State Commits That Will Sign Tomorrow

D’Von Ellies signed in December, meaning that just Smith Vilbert, Joseph Darkwa, and Daequan Hardy are the lone commits that are still unsigned. There shouldn’t be any drama here, but just something to make note of.
