Today is National Signing Day for high school seniors as they sign their national letter of intent to play football at the collegiate level.
We expect about 25 signees for Western. However, head coach David Elson cannot comment on the players until the university has received their letters, which causes things to be a little tricky at times. Elson will have a press conference at 4 p.m. today to talk about this incoming class, and then there will be a reception at the Topper Club, where fans can get a closer look at the recruits.
Recruiting has become big business as fans look for every nugget of information they can find throughout the year. Western is looking to build the excitement and anticipation around the football team, and one way to do that is with a solid recruiting class. Throughout the day ,we’ll be updating as we get news and whatever other information we can get our hands on. As the evening progresses, we’ll have more information and can give you even more insight on the class.
