National Signing Day:
The first fax for Ohio has come in! Read up on Marlin Brooks here. Brooks originally was committed to FIU before eventually deciding on the Bobcats. He’s arguably one of the most talented expected signees for Ohio.

The First Surprise of the Morning!
3-star DT Tyrone Chambers has signed with Toledo. Chambers originally was committed to Toledo way back as a junior, and after committing to three other schools in the meantime his process has come full circle. Chambers was expected to sign with Minnesota and coach P.J. Fleck.
Early enrollee QB Rodney Hall is the first player that NIU officially announced. Hall is a big-time player who will have the opportunity to compete for a starting spot during spring practice, and into the summer.
3-star RB Davion Johnson inks with the RedHawks
Johnson spurned a late offer from Iowa to sign with the RedHawks. Bigtime pickup!
2-star RB Prince Walker signed with the Broncos. He was the first recruit to announce he will stick with WMU back when Fleck left for Minnesota. The last running back to sign with the Broncos from the state of Illinois? Jarvion Franklin.
3-star TE Keegan Cossou has inked with the Chippewas
Cossou has been committed for an extremely long time, and for as talented as he is the Chippewas are lucky to hold onto him. Based off of his talent alone, he looked like a prime candidate for a P5 team to come in late and attempt to flip. While that still may have happened, Cossou stuck true to his word and will suit up for CMU next year.
3-star QB Nick Johns signs with the Zips
A former Virginia quarterback, Johns transferred to junior college in order to pursue his dreams as a division one quarterback. The move paid off as he will suit up for the Zips next year under center.

3-star WR Drayton Law flips from Troy to CMU.

Zaire Jacobs has signed with the Akron Zips. He is an under-the-radar recruit who can really make an impact at Akron. Coach Bowden has always recruited the state of Florida well and it looks like that has not changed.
3-star RB Jordan Rowell signs with the Huskies
Lost in all the craziness of Signing Day, Jordan Rowell re-committed to NIU this morning. This is a huge pick up for the Huskies as he will add some versatility to the backfield.
