Indiana expects to sign a full class of 25 football recruits today on National Signing Day.

Indiana has 24 commits in the class of 2014 which leaves the Hoosiers one more slot to fill. There's always a chance there could be some last minute shuffling, but this is how the Indiana class looks today as recruits are able to begin faxing in their national letters of intent at 7 a.m.
