Michigan will host an “invitation only” event at Hill Auditorium to celebrate National Signing Day on Feb. 3, according to a report Monday on 247Sports.

The event, according to the report, is designed to celebrate Michigan’s 2016 class, which currently is ranked No. 2 nationally in the 247Sports composite rankings.

The Players Tribune is co-sponsoring the function that will include several special guests and will raise money for the ChadTough Foundation, created by Tammi and Jason Carr in honor of their late son, Chad, who died last November from an inoperable brain tumor. The foundation is raising money for awareness and research for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), which claimed their son.
