Today is National Signing Day. Will UCLA or USC defy expectations and sign a five-star prospect? Follow along for live updates.

The first signature is in for UCLA. Locking up the 2020 recruiting class is officially underway as Luke Akers became the first to be announced by the Bruins.

One of the last players to commit to USC’s 2020 recruiting class was one of the first to sign in the national early signing period on Wednesday morning.

Courtland Ford’s moment of truth came last summer. He remade his diet and went to the weight room six days a week, lost roughly 20 pounds.
“They were amazed at how much my body changed,” Ford said. “How much I matured.”

In UCLA, linebacker Jeremiah Trojan found the perfect blend of school and football. On Wednesday morning, he signed his national letter of intent to officially become a Bruin.  https://www.latimes.com/sports/highschool/liveblog/national-signing-day-live-updates-top-prospects-signing#linebacker-jeremiah-trojan-eager-to-be-a-contributor-for-ucla
