Early signing period close
The NCAA's early signing period this year begins on November 9th and runs to November 16th. Coaches are prohibited from speaking to the media about signees until they have the signed letter-of-intent in hand. The coaches at Purdue traditionally have reserved comment on any particular signee until all the expected letters-of-intent have arrived from the players they expect to sign. So far, that list includes Amber Harris, Dee Dee Jernigan and FahKara Malone.
