Signing Day Open Thread
So as of 9:10, the LOIs we are waiting on are Poggi, Fox, Dukes, McCray, R. Dawson, and Samuelson.
Latonya Logan Tuley-Tillman
jaron dukes is in
and I absolutely love the fact that he's from Columbus.
So...there isn't going to be any signing day surprises for the 2013 class? I am completely neglecting work and i want some fireworks!
I don't want fireworks!
Jaron Dukes signed.
I meant new commit fireworks like Henry, and Northfleet last year.
North? I think the fireworks this year were an East fleet. Green and Speight out of Richmond Virginia.
How are they pulling such highly rated players? They are a bottom feeder is their conference....i guess the pub of SEC is winning out
During his announcement Tunsil said he didn't expect much when visiting Ole Miss, but "saw some things..." Yea.
And tradition of course. Gotta be the only reasons am I right? Its so obvious to everyone.
So...changing gears a little bit. Ole Miss is definetely doing something very shady. You don't have a joke of a program and then reel in 3 of the top 10 players in the country. Something is not right with this situation.
Is something so anomolous as this enough to warrant a closer look by the NCAA, or at least by some sort of Miss equivalent of the freep? I understand as of now, there is only wild speculation based on the fact that there is seemingly no way they could be landing these guys legitimately.
But come on, there is no way they could be landing these guys legitimately
Maybe I'm just a traditionalist but I like my cheating to at least be somewhat of a secret

Unfortunately, I can't watch ESPNU @ work.
if after you opened all of your presents you had to wait until spring to play with them. I can't wait to see these kids develop and to watch them start playing some football, even if it is just springball.
Is there a stream out there for those without access to ESPNU? I would love to see how the Worldwide Leader is analyzing our kick-ass class.
They are probably analyzing it by gushing over Alabama, Florida, LSU, and Ole Miss.
and Ole Miss is a f-ing chimney right now.
Does anyone in the NCAA even see patterns like Ole Miss? Or do they stay oblivious because they know they have no power to truly get to the root of the problem?
Saban will narc on them. Plus the other established powers of the SEC will likely be happy to see Ole Miss thrown under the bus.
That said if you're Ole Miss, it is likely worth it. You'll get 4 or 5 years in the sun and maybe even a national title before the NCAA catches to you. The NCAA will of course nuke you and you'll suck, but hey you sucked before so what did you really lose? Plus if you can build some excitement during your run, you'll get donations and the like to at least improve your facilities.
Sparty will set a lot of things on fire Tuesday
SI has a pretty cool signing day page up with current news and LOI updates. Just keep refreshing.
Chris Fox is in.
Vonn Bell to Ohio
Guess that explains the ____ ____ committed to TN picture on Twitter
How does Arizona's class look?
Dan Samuelson just sent his letter in.
Does anyone else think this kid is going to be a beast?
Only 3 left....
Not sure which 3 right off hand, think its Reon Dawson, Poggi and Chris Fox
fox is in
Dawson, Poggi, and McCray, I'd imagine McCray and Dawson have some sort of ceremony at their school. I know Poggi does in about an hour.
Mike McCray is among the unsubmitted.
Ok, still 3, I forogt about McCray II
There actually showing them as signed.
use that instead of espn
Thanks I was watching the stream but didnt realize they had a list.
Gotta love the fact that 4 of 6 of our early enrollees are from the state of Ohio.... I guess they wanted to get out of that state as soon as possible !!!! Thats fantastic. Anyway, enjoy signing day. Go Blue.
Ohio up to #1 class on rivals now. How in the hell can they afford to have 26 committs?? A lot of good those scholarship reductions are doing, well done on the punishment NCAA!
I presume that when their new recruits are added to Scout, they will pass us there, too. (Unless Elliott decommits...). Seriously, what a heavy hammer the NCAA has wielded against Ohio.
They can only have 82 total scholarship players. Think after today we will be at the 85 limit with out any of the normal players transferring during the summer. So basically 3 scholarships doesnt mean much at all.
It's adorable that you think they actually got punished. The lack of a bowl game last year was really the only punishment they had. This is exactly why schools cheat, the rewards are greater than the punishment.
