National Signing Day

Today marks the first day that high school players can officially sign with their college of choice. National Signing Day is akin to the NFL Draft for college football. Coaches will gush over their class of 17- and 18-year-olds, and fans will dream of 1,000 runners and 3,000 passers. In reality, it's hard to gauge how an 18-year-old kid will handle life away from home on the big stage of college football.

However, that doesn't mean that recruiting and signing day isn't still a big event. Recruiting is the lifeblood of a program and Signing Day is the culmination of months of work for coaches.

LSU has already nailed down a top 5 recruiting class, with many services touting the Tigers as the #1 class in the country. There are still a few surprises with top players like Rueben Randle and Trent Richardson still in the mix for multiple schools, including LSU.

You can follow LSU's signings and other recruiting information on the Web throughout the day. Here are a few sites to check out:
