Which Big 10 Program Will Have A Disappointing Signing Day?

Tomorrow is college football's biggest day of the offseason.

The Big Ten has had a decent 2017 recruiting cycle.

Ohio State and Michigan both have top five classes and Penn State and Nebraska both have top 20 classes.

Heading into National Signing Day, though, it looks like the Huskers could have a disappointing day.

It seems as if four-star wide receiver Jamire Calvin might be flipping to Washington State tomorrow.

Along with that, ESPN insider Jeremy Crabtree is predicting Nebraska to have a disappointing day.

From ESPN:

Few schools have as much riding Wednesday as Nebraska does. The Huskers are involved with as many as a half-dozen players who are expected to announce on signing day, and if all goes right, they could easily catapult into the top 20 or even top 15.

However, it's not going to be a big boom for the Huskers. Reading the tea leaves, it's hard to see a way where Nebraska lands everybody it wants. It's also not going to be a big bust -- Nebraska will find a way to land a few players still on the board -- but the final haul will finish somewhere in the middle.

Huskers coaches will be happy with that result, but the fan base won't be and will second-guess if the all-in national approach is the best way to recruit.

Nebraska's 2017 class is ranked the No. 22 class in the country by 247Sports. You can view the full class here.
