National Signing Day is Here

Today is like Christmas for every major college football team in the country. It is national signing day, the day when a dynasty can be born, and a failing football program can be put back on track. It is also the day that a once powerhouse program can come crumbling back down to earth. Don't believe me? Imagine how much better Michigan would have been this season if they had inked Tyrelle Pryor like they planned on last season.

Top recruits will be signing deals all day today, and thanks to our friends at you can check back here as we will keep you informed on all the big movers and shakers. Check back to see where your favorite football team ended up on our big board.

University of Virginia fans can rejoice, Offensive linemen U, has found their newest project. The Virginia Cavaliers signed four star recruit and mammoth of a man Morgan Mosses. Mosses comes form Richmond Virginia, and is a 6'6 332 pound offensive tackle.

The bloggers ESPN use are horrible, that's just this humble blogs opinion.

This is a move that I just don't get. It was my understanding that today was national signing day and this was the last day players were eligible to sign a scholarship to a school. However, Pryor did it last year and not someone else is making the same moves. I have to say I don't like it. Four-star RB David Oku from Midwest City Carl Albert (Okla.) won't sign today and will sign in late February, considering Tennessee, Auburn and Syracuse. He is's No. 9 running back nationwide. --Allen Wallace

USC loses another recruit. It looks like once again Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis is putting together another stellar recruiting class, this time at the Trojans expense. The nation's No. 1 strongside linebacker, Manti Te'o from Honolulu (Hawaii) Punahou, just announced he will be signing with Notre Dame, choosing the Irish over USC and UCLA. --Brandon Huffman

This one is big: Corona (Calif.) Centennial linebacker Vontaze Burfict, the No. 1-ranked MLB in the country, has switched his longtime commitment to USC to Arizona State, just signing his Letter of Intent. Fellow Centennial linebacker Ben Letcher is signing with Fresno State, deciding this morning. --Brandon Huffman

Ole Miss continues its huge winter run by inking five-star wide receiver Pat Patterson. Patterson is a college-ready type of wideout who is solidly built and does everything on the field well. --Scott Kennedy

Florida is on a roll as they just landed the signature of Olney (Md.) Good Counsel five-star linebacker Jelani Jenkins. Jenkins chose the Gators over Penn State and Stanford. The Gators also picked up talented three-star safety Joshua Evans from Irvington (N.J.). Evans chose the Gators over Oklahoma and Pittsburgh. --Bob Lichtenfels
