Illinois National Signing Day Preview

High School

Posted On: 11/9/16 6:15 AM

Wednesday begins the early signing period in college basketball.  What does this mean?  It is the first day that prospects that have committed to a school can sign their national letter of intent and officially join a program.  The early signing period will last for one week.  After that prospects will have to wait until the spring to sign.

In Illinois we have tons of prospects that have already committed.  As they give us their signing times we will update this list.  Also make sure you stay locked on PrepHoopsIllinois on Wednesday for our National Signing Day Blog!
