On Wednesday high school football’s top players will begin signing their letters of intent to the schools of their choice. While most players will hold small press conferences in front of their high school friends and family, some will be fortunate to be given a chance to declare their intentions in front of a national audience through various television outlets.
ESPNU and CBS College Sports, in addition to radio shows and more regional networks will ask these kids which school they will attend and the question may be which player will put on the best show in making their announcement. It was hard to top the way South Carolina Gamecocks running back Marcus Lattimore made his announcement with the pomp and circumstance surrounding his decision, but surely there will be some kid who makes the most of the spotlight on Wednesday.
What I would like to know this week is how much live coverage you plan on watching on Wednesday, or if you are taking this poll after Wednesday how much did you watch?
In the comments section please leave a comment with what coverage you were watching and any opinions you have on the media attention given to National Signing Day. It is a topic that has come under fire in the media before and will surely do again this week but if people were not tuning in to watch then these networks would not be providing coverage. Some food for thought.
Vote now! Poll closes on Friday.
And just a reminder that Examiner will be providing continuing coverage of National Signing Day as well.
