Welcome to National Signing Day 2016!

The Iowa State football team currently has 20 players committed that have yet to sign their national letters of intent (out of 25 total members of the class of 2016). Use this thread to discuss recruits and any surprises that may happen during the day, and follow along with our chart below to track which players have officially inked with ISU!

We'll keep updating this page throughout the day to reflect the current status of each recruit.

And as for other players who may end up deciding to become a Cyclone later today, keep an eye out on the following recruits' decisions:

DE Jaquan Bailey - Considered the more talented of the two Bailey twins, Jaquan has some nice offers on his board, including ones from Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Florida State and Iowa State. Eight of nine predictions on the 247Sports Crystal Ball have him heading to VT, but there's a possibility that both Jaquan and his brother Joshua go to the same school, and that school could be ISU.

However, judging by Jaquan's Twitter profile, don't hold your breath.

DT Joshua Bailey - Joshua has received less attention than his brother on the recruiting front, but he's still got the size to play on the defensive line at the D-1 level at 6-foot-2, 260 pounds. His 247Sports profile has one prediction currently, and it's for an Iowa State commitment. Between the two Bailey brothers, Joshua is more likely to be a Cyclone than his brother.

Once again using the Twitter profile scanning method, Joshua's recent visit to ISU sticks out.

Both of the Bailey twins will announce at 8 a.m. this morning.

RB David Montgomery - Montgomery's last official visit was to Ames back on January 22. It's looking like he could end up committing to Iowa State later today, as the two Crystal Ball predictions on 247Sports have Montgomery becoming a Cyclone.

His official announcement is set for 9:45 this morning, so keep refreshing your Twitter feed around then to see the news break for yourself.

Stay tuned to WRNL for any National Signing Day breaking news, as well as analysis on this year's class when the dust has settled!
