@LibertyFootball Instagram page will post live updates throughout National Signing Day on Wednesday of the December portion of Liberty's 2019 football signing class. As Liberty's newest recruits ink their national letters of intent, will be posting real-time updates allowing you to meet the bright new stars of Flames Nation.

Once each signee's national letter of intent has cleared Liberty's Compliance office, an update will be posted to the @LibertyFootball social media accounts. Shortly thereafter, a full player bio will be posted to this webpage, providing further details about Liberty's next recruit.

At the conclusion of today's National Signing Day, Flames Head Football Coach Hugh Freeze will hold a press conference with the local media to wrap up coverage of his first signing class at Liberty. A video archive of the press conference will be available on later Wednesday evening.
