Signing Day

No, it has nothing to do with American Sign Language.

Today is the day that high school recruits can send in their formal letters of intent. It really does boggle my mind how it works. Do they have to fill out college applications or is it "all taken care of"?

Anyway - while not having the excitement overload status of last year's class - hey, it was all we had to be remotely happy about for 2 years - this years' class is solid. It's hard not to be a little jealous of some of the other teams - but the Lions signed 24 quality kids. We'll have to wait a little while to see how soon they can make an impact as all but one (I believe) start school in the fall. 3 big Offensive linemen - We need to replace EZ this year, that's a real concern. PSU's gonna have more DTs than any other school - Larry Johnson, Sr. is a recruiting god - they're going to have to change PSU's moniker from LBU to DTU. A couple running backs - a couple receivers. AJ Wallace was recruited as a DB he has super speed (4.4/40) - I saw him in the Army All Star Game he had the only interception - also in the game were Chris Bell (WR) and Maurice Evans (DE), who had 2 sacks. It's been a strange recruiting season, both Devlin (QB) and Carter (RB) reversed previous commitments (Miami and UVA, respectively) to pick PSU.
