Join us here at Big Red Report as we take you through one of the biggest days of the college football season, and it's not even a time where a game is going to be played. It's "Signing Day", the day some of the best prep and junior college players from around the country sign their letters of intent, officially declaring that they will be playing for their school of the future.
Here's a rundown of what we have going on at Big Red Report and where you can catch us as we rehash the class, talk about the future and just what this class means to the Huskers.
NOTE: Nebraska had 21 commits and they now have 20 official signees for the class of 2009. The lone player not to sign is Lincoln High School (Tallahassee, FL) cornerback DeAndre Byrd. We talked with the coaches from LHS and they informed us that Byrd would not qualify, and he is now making plans on attending a junior college.
They are working with the Nebraska coaches on determining just where that will be.
Approximately at 7:00 AM. Join us in the Red Zone Chat Room as you will get up-to-the-minute updates on who has signed their Letters of Intent and who is left to go.
Also make sure to check out Red Zone Forum as we will have a running tally of who has signed their LOI and who has yet to sign.
