The Rich Get Richer (National Signing Day)
There’s still a few weeks until the next season of college football starts, so to pass the time, we get to enjoy National Signing Day, otherwise known as the day the Rich get Richer. Which blue-chip player is going where and all that. The top-ranked player in the country is Bryce Brown, who has given a verbal commitment to the University of Miami. This, however, does not mean he’s going to play for the Hurricanes, because until he signs that LOI (letter of intent), Brown is fair game. Apparently, the recruiting process has become so taxing on Brown’s family, they aren’t even in town, allowing Bryce to escape the circus.
This also means, however, Hurricanes fans may want to curtail any premature Bryce Brown celebrations until he puts his John Hancock on the LOI.
This is just an example of the type of fun college football fans can expect this afternoon. There are a ton of sites covering the festivities, including ESPN, Rivals and Scout.com. Some folks think Alabama is a shoe-in for the top-ranked recruiting class, regardless of who signs where. Others are just enjoying the process.
We’ll revisit today’s college football fun — hey, it’s just like the NFL Draft, but with no Mel Kiper — and pick through the remains of wreckage. Will Bama get the overall top-ranked class or will Saban be defeated by the forces of non-Bama influence?
