On Wednesday, Liberty Head Football Coach Turner Gill announced his 2016 signing class after 18 players signed national letters of intent to join the program.

Part of Liberty's coverage of National Signing Day was the return of the award-winning LFSN Signing Day Special, presented by Game On.

The 60-minute show was streamed live on ESPN3. During the show, LFSN's reporters Matt Warner and Alan York provided in-depth analysis of Gill's signing class, along with feature interviews with many of Liberty's assistant coaches.

Last May, the 2015 LFSN Signing Day Special was the Collegiate Athletics winner of the "Outstanding Studio/Remote Hosted Programming" category at the College Sports Media Awards in Atlanta.

Gill's 2016 signing class, his fifth recruiting class at Liberty, included 15 high school standouts, a junior college player who will join the team in August and two players who have already joined Liberty's spring roster.

Gill's 2016 recruiting class included five offensive linemen, three safeties, two defensive linemen, two quarterbacks, two wide receivers, plus a running back, kicker, cornerback and linebacker. This year's recruiting class is one of the most diverse in Gill's history, as Liberty's coaching staff was able to ink players from 10 different states.

The Flames signed multiple players from the high school hotbeds of Florida (5), Georgia (3) and Texas (3), while getting single signees from Alabama, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
